3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, pours a clear pale yellow with no head. Aroma is complex, with notes of honey, apple, and pear. Flavour brings out lovely notes of honey and apple - medium complexity. Drinks like a mix of a cider and a mead. Great stuff.

Bottle - Light apple and honey and herbal notes. Clear pale yellow with no head. Apple and honey, crisp sweetness and a dryish. Nice, I like the combinations.

Pale blond color. Fresh, mineral aroma, with hints of honey and flowers. Lean and moderately sweet, with nice honey flavor, tingling carbonation, and delicate fresh apples.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden pour with a little bit of light haziness. Softly sweet with a touch of heavily honeyed character. A little bit of apple character and a touch of spice. Lightly yeasty with a touch of breadiness. Some bright floral wildflower honey flavour that is really appealing. It’s got a touch of sweetness, but it’s nicely fresh and pretty appealing.

Buttery chardonnay aroma, with bits of melon and honey, sweetness. Deep straw colored. Short lived white foam. Spritzy with sustained effervescence. Earthy aromas emerge as it warms. Thanks so much McPhee!

Draught at Brewer’s Plate. Pale golden, no head. Strong appley aroma with slightly funky edge. Great mouthfeel - mild carbonation, silky smooth on the palate. Sweet honeyed apple flavour, some candy apple and cotton candy lingering on the palate. A touch too sweet, perhaps, but still very pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2008-08-17. Very pale yellow, headless body. Sweet light aroma, light florals, muted apples if I look hard. Flavour is pure Macintosh up front, well rounded. Sweet in the finish, kissed by tart apples. (7+) Smooth average palate. A bit less assertive than the Madrigal but more drinkable in its simplicity. Am regretting not having bought some to bring home in hindsight. Bottle, Sampled at the winery

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from my secret santa. Kind of squeeky honey apple aroma, a bit floral. Very pale pour. A touch of spritz in the flavor is nice but this is pretty dull as a mead. Thin and lacking a distinct flavor. Certainly not bad, just very dull.
