IQhilika African Dry Mead
Makana Meadery IQhilika African Dry Mead (12% alcohol by volume) is a dry mead with a mild honey aroma with traces of fig, fruit, nuts, a touch of earthiness, a hint of mustiness and fruit blossom. It is a burnished brass color with a touch of copper and a light haze. The reflectance is medium and the legs are long and well formed. Light honey leads the flavors. It is dry but flavorful offering up a fruity tartness, apple, traces of tannins, light alcohol and some spice. As it warms the fruit flavors grow in complexity and character. It is like drinking a glass of wild flowers. I has a light fig and almond aftertaste. This mead pairs well with red meat and spicy dishes. I rate it 85.
