2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I did not care for this mead in the least. Aroma was very floral in a potporri kind of way. Heavy spruce adds to the flowers. Taste is too sweet and floral without a balancing hop bitterness that I was expecting. Not a fan at all.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Poured from bottle into a tulip glass with no head. After all, it’s not a beer. Color is very light and slightly cloudy, almost like that of a Berliner Weiss. Aroma is amazing with the scent of sweet honey and hops. Taste is very unique with sweetness most present in a pleasant way from the honey then this light hop bitterness unfolds and lingers on the back of the tongue and roof of the mouth. In my opinion an excellent creation that was crafted with a fine hand to achieve something so different that had me comin back for more. Now if I could only find more bottles of this from somewhere...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale green with barely any head, no legs at all. Smells like champagne, and hints of some tropical fruit, mostly pineapple. Odd flavor, like a less carbonated and sweeter IPA, the hops leave an odd slight bitter grapefruit finish after the attack of honey sweetness. B.nektar making interesting meads as always

Not sure what I think about it. Very odd. Weird finish...not sweet...not bitter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to snifter. Looks decent; a transparent light yellow with thin white lacing. Smells solid; sweet and hoppy. Tastes like it smells only better with great balance, a crisp finish, and a pleasant mouthfeel. As a hophead with gluten issues, I’m REALLY happy to have found this!

Pours clear with only a hint of gold. Aroma is honey, a hint of wildflower and just the faintest of hops. Taste is sweet upfront followed by honey then a hint of ash. The finish is very mild hop bitterness.

Bottle on the RBSG 2012 bus. I don’t know much about mead, but this stuff is delicious. Straight-up stone fruits and honey. I want to drizzle this on a flaky biscuit.
