3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half liter bottle. Pours a VERY pale yellow color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Fades quickly. Aroma of spicy hops, sweet honey in the background and an almost toasty note. The taste is sweet honey, banana, bitter herbal hop finish. Medium bodied, slight tannins. Interesting, but not really my thing.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
La couleur est un pale mélange entre un cidre et une coors light. Une odeur de miel et de vin blanc, un gout de miel et de pissenlit et une amertume végétale persistante...un peu trop brutal sur le sucre et l’amertume, j’aurais aimé des houblons aromatiques.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Notes of light bread, moderate amount of herbs and pine for the hops, light sweaty pussy and cheese for the yeast, with white wine in the background. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is pale bile yellow. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, slick in texture and has a soft carbonation. Hard to describe, very unique, smells kind of funky and the flavors seem confused.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Knightly Spirits bottle enjoyed at home. Fairly still looking pour that reminds me of weak, green tea. Aroma: a sweet, German Riesling that has hops and honey added to it. Flavor: as you would expect; the honey from the mead and bitterness from hops. Lingering sweetness on your lips from the honey. Pretty cool its only 6 ABV too. Interesting and good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a mead with a bit of hop flavor. No bite or bitterness to speak of, but a strange twinge of hop aftertaste. Wouldn't go for it again, but fun to try.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My first of the style. Almost clear, like a chardonnay. Palate like a sweet wine. Interesting; enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Dosbeerigos for sharing. Super clean pour, almost water like. Aroma was sweet with slight hints of hops and malts. Flavor was mostly sweet with a slight hoppy bitter finish. Very interesting intriguing beer/mead.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from World of Beer in Tampa Palms. Clear pale yellow pour with a small, short lived head. Honey sweetness in the nose with a touch of savory Saison notes. Flavor is odd at first, but interesting and them intriguing as it warms. This one kept getting better as the flavors opened up. Unique take on a mead.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Greenish yellow body, very fizzy at first with a thin white bubble but quickly disappears. Citric, lemonade, herbal and soapy. Interesting. Funny taste challenge with sharp but moderate sour notes, melony sweetness and a herbal bitterness. Not balanced a t at but rather throwing your taste buds around. I think I like it, although I wouldn’t have it any day. Totally different from the other means I’ve tried. Fun brew. (50cl bottle on Florida trip)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
9/9/12. 500mL bottle. Almost clear, slight yellowish tinge, pour with no head and no legs/tears. Light sweet honey on the aroma with citrus, hops, bitterness, and a certain cleaner aspect... almost like a cheap lemon lime soda but not as sweet. Light sweetness and a surprising hop bitterness with another somewhat medicinal aspect alongside the citrus and honey. This again reminds me of Sprite or something. My wife says it smells and tastes like some product ladies use to remove hair... dunno.
