You will have to tell the community more about...whatever we are looking at. Looks like a mead that is done fermenting to me, but I have no idea of how much honey is in there, when it was put in, what yeast was used, SG readings....
What is the issue, question or concern?
yeah i didnt notice a taste at all, just caught me by suprise when it stuck to the wine thief.I've noticed that with all my meads so far, I've never seen it on wine so I assumed it is a normal mead thing, they always tasted fine.
I just figured it was yeast that rose to the surface or leftover beeswax from the honey, maybe even yeast that hitch-hiked on the wax.
When I bottle, I just draw from underneath it and drink the dregs myself.
