Drinking fermented honey


1. A person had raw honey that began bubbling and smelling fermented. Can it be used? Because I read that people make a drink from it.

2. A drink called 'mead' is made from this fermented honey. Would this be permissible?

A: It is permissible as long as it has got no intoxicating effect.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
