2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle poured at waitsfield farmers market. Clear pour with no head. Aromas and taste are weird spice, fire, honey, and random herbs. Finish was average, a little more sweetness but still very, dry and hot overall.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sampled at the Farmer’s Market with Vinny and Keith. Pours a light golden body with minimal bubbles. Aroma is strong woody fruit, flowers and alcohol. Mouthfeel is dry with notes of alcohol and fruit - essentially that’s it. That this was a bit too harsh, especially considering the alcohol.

I enjoyed this mead. Full flavored and lightly fruity with apple, flowers, honey, and a bit of a sweetness left over. Quite tasty.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from City Market Onion River Co-Op in Burlington, VT. Pours a crystal clear, very pale straw colored body with no head. Aroma is funky, sweaty socks with a woodiness that mixes with a sweet honey and floral backing. Not as terrible as it sounds, but definitely interesting. Flavor is somewhat better. Fairly woody throughout with a bit of a minty leaf note and funk alongside a honey sweetness, touches of pear, some florals, and a bit of a spiciness before this finishes dry, yet sweet with a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Light-medium body. Overall, a dryer mead that has a nice sweetness, but interesting funk and woodiness throughout. I’m not the biggest mead connoisseur, but this one was kind of weird. Not the biggest fan of this one right now.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A blonde mead with a rather interesting wild grass honey and wood chips...someone next to me said it reminded them of port-o-potty wood shavings. In mouth, a light sweet honey with clovers, mint wild funk, nice. Tasted a Shelburne Vineyards, April 7 2012.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice light pale yellow. Aromas of fresh honey with nice light floral notes. Flavor is wonderful honey, not too sweet. Light floral notes with hints of herbal undertones. On the thinner side yet very nice. I like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the bottle at the shop. Poured a clear pale gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma was sweet with honey with a bit of a fruit backing and a hint of flora. Flavor brought out more than just honey with a bit of fruit and flora for some complexity. Nice and smooth.
