Sima - Finish 'mjöd'

I have made 16 liters of  Finnish 'Mjöd' so far during the month of May.
Brito likes it. I can't drink it myself when I am an allergic of Citric fruits.
I don't really know how to explain this drink for you. 
It's anyhow a typical Finnish drink that we make of lemons. 
It's fresh and sparkling and if you save it in the refrigerator for some weeks it gets 
stronger and stronger when it comes to the alcohol intensity.
It can become up to 24% strong!
We drink it especially during the month of May.
The first weeks it's more or less alcohol free.
The Wikings were also drinking 'mjöd' but the typical Swedish mjöd is
made on a base of honey. 
It's mostly in Finland that we make the drink including lemon.
