3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle from Homer321 - thanks LaSean! Pours a clear, very pale yellow gold with some fizzing bubbles initially that quickly settle into nothing. Looks like a white wine, basically. Aroma of florals, grass, straw, earth, and honey. The flavor has more honey, balanced by grass, florals, herbs, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with a vinous, lightly bitter mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not as hop-forward as advertised, but a decent mead. Underrated.

My very first mead, so it’s difficult to rate this. I definitely prefer this to an average sake, but give me a beer any day. I have no idea why this one is marketed as an IPA-style mead - there’s no citrus or bitterness. It’s actually pretty watery and inoffensive. Just nothing noteworthy about this.

Pour is light golden with a medium sized white head. Aroma and flavor of honey, white grapes, hops, sugar, and grass. Finish is dank and watery.

Bottle @ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours looking like a white wine, big lychee nose, big lychee taste, fruity and sweet but also lip smacking dry as well, fantastic

Thin white wine look, no head. Blossoming lychee and rich bitterness already coming through. Cooling bitterness, cloying at times. Easy going mouth-feel. Light limey finish, oddly citrus.

Pours extremely pale - almost like water - with a thin white head. Aroma is very floral hops with pine. Taste is initially sweet pine with honey coming through for the mid and the finish. Overall a very pleasant mead.
