Hydromelix Christmas Mead (Chouchen)
A Christmas-themed offering from the Hydromelix produced by Liqueurs Fisselier. The French name is Hydromelix de Noël: Hydromel aux Épices.
The drink is fairly clear in appearance. The colour is golden with a slight amber hue as is typical of many metheglins.
The aroma is mainly sweet and fruity with a background of clove and other spices.
The spices are reasonably integrated and not overbearing. The taste is fairly dominated with the Chouchen itself with the spices coming into their own in the finish. The spice that stands out the most appears to be cloves, giving this mead justification for its Christmas label.
