6 months later - low carbonation, fruity, very tasty. 1 year - carbonation varies from bottle to bottle, very tasty has a Lindermans Framboise Lambic (sp?) taste and carbonation. 2 years&2months later had last one. carbonation was little low for my liking but a very good after dinner mead with desert. A must to repeat, no pun intended.
