The Colony Meadery in Allentown has submitted for approval to release a few new meads. Most of these are a bit stronger than their previous ones, coming in at 16% and 16.5%. The first is Beso Exotico, made with honey, chocolate, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. Rainbow Bridge is a mead created with cocoa nibs and raspberries, lending a tart hint to a sweet profile. Favorite Child combines raspberries and chipotle peppers to lend a smoky, spicy character to the mead. The last new mead, Fred and Ginger, is weaker in ABV than the rest, at 7.5%ABV, but incorporates 24 lbs of ginger in every batch.
