BJCP 2008 Guideline

Traditional Mead - Dry Mead

BJCP 24A

 

IMPRESSION

Similar in balance, body, finish and flavor intensity to a dry white wine, with a pleasant mixture of subtle honey character, soft fruity esters, and clean alcohol. Complexity, harmony, and balance of sensory elements are most desirable, with no inconsistencies in color, aroma, flavor or aftertaste. The proper balance of sweetness, acidity, alcohol and honey character is the essential final measure of any mead.

COMMENTS

See standard description for entrance requirements. Entrants MUST specify carbonation level and strength. Sweetness is assumed to be DRY in this category. Entrants MAY specify honey varieties.

EXAMPLES

White Winter Dry Mead, Sky River Dry Mead, Intermiel Bouquet Printanier
