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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour is a clear yellow one with a small layer of white foam. Aroma is nicely hoppy, mostly citrus notes. There is some sweet honey, nice floral aromas, tropical fruit, and sugar. Flavor has a very intense tropical character and lots of lychee. Some citrus, tons of pears, and plenty of sugary sweetness and honey.

not quite colorless, but nearly. no head. this is a pretty unique mix of sweet and hoppy. it works for me, but i can see how others might not like this much. i have had better meads, but none this interesting.
