Hydromelix Grapefruit Mead (Chouchen)

(See more from Liqueurs Fisselier)

Filed under:

A bold melomel flavour from Brittany-based “Chouchen” producer Liqueurs Fisselier: “hydromel au pamplemousse” or grapefruit mead.

Appearance

The colour barely deviates from the classic mead. There might be a very slight pink hue, but I also might be imagining it.

Nose

The first whiff gives up a nice grapefruit aroma, but slight chemical notes come shortly after. As with a lot of citrus fruits these days, it’s hard not to be reminded of washing-up liquid when you smell the flavour.

Taste

The initial sip brings all the sweet flavours first. There is a subtle base sweetness from the honey combined with the fruity aspects of the grapefruit flavour. The aftertaste is pretty much exactly the same as grapefruit juice itself.
