Bottle on Amtrak Train 27 - The Empire Builder ( from Binnyís South Loop) - 04/11/12. Very pale yellow with a thin white head that clears to the edges and forms a small pond. Nose comprises honey and piss, light citrus, farm like, touch of horse. Tastes of sweet sugars, herbs, medicinal qualities, honey, strepsils. Medium bodied with limited carbonation leading to a sweet acrid finish. Meh ! I will admit I have only had a few meads in my time and none for a good few years but this tasted nothing like them.

Hardly any color. Just a hint of yellow distinguishes it from water. Although, because of how clear it is, itís fun to watch the bubbles constantly float to the top of the glass. Aroma is very inviting with a mix of sweet honey and citrus hops. Flavor is very unique. Loads of sweetness from honey and grapes, counteracted by a hit of hops. Interesting finish, as well. Lick your lips and get a hint of sweetness, but the bitterness from the hops lingers. Quite tasty. Bonus points for creativity, cleverness, and the label.

Bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma has sort of a buttery chard character, floral notes, minerals. Flavors have initial honey sweetness but then an odd twangy bitterness comes on, minerals, orange citrus with earthy florals, and leaves a medicinal numbing like character. Finish also has a cough syrup quality. Iím thinking its a poor mead then odd hop character doesnít help.

Sweet floral aroma, clear and white in color. Bitter and sweet in taste. Slightly hoppy. Interesting flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is sweet an honey filled, an appearance is almost like a yellow water. Taste is full mead, with amazing hop character. Palate is dry and nice. Very fun fusion mead.

very light peach color, aroma of funky spicy hops, sweet fruits, flavor starts off with a funky hop bite the quickly turns to a sweet but tart fruits with some honey, light and fuzzy, what the hell did i just drink....? I couldnít drink a bottle but i have to give kudos for something different.

Weird concept but they pulled it off. Aroma is hops and lots of them, my brain was tricked into thinking this was an ipa until I tasted it. Taste was honey and hops, no hop bite in the mouth like you would expect but the hop flavour is definitely present. The finish is really clean which is different, overall not bad I would buy this again.

on tap at Buckeye, Kegs of mead seem a weird concept to me, but this is super light colored almost still, no bubbles to be seen. the nose is hoppy with that musty dank chinook hop smell, taste is more of the same a dank hoppy flavor then bombarded by sweetness from the honey, however it doesnt mesh all that well to me. I can see fruit meads being very delicious when you crave sweetness.

Wow, what a nice hybrid of a mead. A big thanks to Harold for hooking me up with this one. The color is a slightly yellow/pale greenish tint that looks pleasing. The first whiff I took of this one was interesting. Tons of herbal notes, some lightly dank hops, sweet honey. The aroma is very intriguing. The taste is pretty similar with a light citrus note, some herbal/floral hops, sweet honey, and a very clean finish. The low abv makes this one even better, as in, I could drink these all day...and I would! Anywho, a great idea that was executed well. Props, again, to B. Nektar.

This is such a unique beverage, Iím surprised it doesnít have itís own category. It smells like a sparkling moscato, tastes like a honey/lime soda and finishes like a thin IPA. Not too complex, light sweetness and fun to drink. Cheers my friend!!!
