Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Mead

BJCP M3b

Overall Impression
In well-made examples of the style, the spices are both distinctive and well-incorporated into the honeysweet- acid-tannin-alcohol balance of the mead. Different types of spices can result in widely different characteristics; allow for a variation in the final product.
