Bottle via Michael. Thanks! Pours an almost crystal clear to slightly yellow color with some small bubbles but no real head. Aroma is champagne and cat litter, gross. Taste is fairly nice with a light sweet honeydew, slight honey, dry finish and some bitter to faded hop. Not horrible if you donít smell it but that smell just pushes it over the top into "gross"

Pours clear with a white head and sweet, fruity aroma. Taste is sweet, of honey, fruit, sugar, and light hops with a bittersweet finish. Different type of mead, odd mix

Bottle. Pours an absolutely clear off yellow color. Nose is sweet and slightly tart, amazed by the clarity. Taste is bitter sweet and astringent, not very flavorful. Finish is off as well, fruity and bitter sweet, This will teach me NOT to buy a beer / mead without checking ratebeer first. Ugh Quaff Score 4 / 10

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Super clear, almost like water with a slight yellow and green-ish tinge. Almost no head, just a white collar. Aroma is some danky hops, light citrus and some mild honey. Slight dirty, earthy character. Taste is sweet honey with citric and grassy hops with a light peach and citrus character. Pretty tasty, like a sweet pale ale with honey.

50 cl. bottle. Pours a very pale gold with no head to speak of. Aroma of honey, citrus, and florals. Taste is the same. Mainly sweet with a bit of hops. Very different.

shared with friends when we tried making mead for the first time. Nearly clear color, looks like mineral water with light yelow tinge. Aroma is right up front mix of pine and lime with bit of grapefruit rind. Taste is light honey but has a white wine dryness to it. Mead is very different kind of thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at Sicilianoís. Clear blanc color with a medium white head. Aroma of hops, lime and honey. Honey and lime flavor with a crisp, hoppy finish. I donít normally enjoy hops in my mead, but this one was different. Maybe the carbonation made me think I was drinking beer or something. Tasty stuff.

500mL thanks to BSchnab! Sparkling white wine, cider color. Fizzing out foam. Nose is strange, gamey and hoppy chardonnay. Maybe tangelo and Thai orange. Sharp white wine with strange funk. Taste is sweet, some bright white wine funk, but ultimately itís too cloying with sharp plastic. Carbonation is dead quickly providing no much needed refreshment. Odd for sure.
