Pours clear green-tinged yellow into a snifter. A few bubbles hug the rim. Green apple, honey and sour urine aromas. Perfume, sour apples and bitter honey upfront give way to a twig and earth lasting bitter finish. Nasty.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 If this is a mead, I’m a beer expert, heheh. On tap at the vintage estate, nice eye candy. Let me tell you, I’d like to get a bottle of this, the tap was so much better than expected, seriously a really good sweet "beer". Very clear and bubbly, like soda water, makes it very interesting. Sweet fromthe start but never cloying, jsut the right amount of mead eprsonality on a bubbly base. As session cintinues it becomes friendly fun easyu nice, yes, this is a real good session that I nerver expected. If you like lindemans and sweet mead, try this stuff out. Loverly, no really. Yum, IPA its not. Barely any co2. wnt more of this, its gone, bullshit. I f you are thinking about a mead, youy may be dissapointed, its mead flavored beer, which makes it rather watery compared to mead. Very happy I got to try this. Thanks vintage! YUMMY!

Draft... Clear and straw-colored with a small, fizzy, short-lived, white head. The bouquet is a disagreeable marriage of green apple and musky/funky hops. Medium to full-bodied and a touch syrupy with only a trace of carbonation. The flavor offers sweet honey followed by a lightly bitter/mostly sweet finish. Note to B. Nektar: Knock it off. This stuff sucks. Cook up more Zombie Killer. Thanks. -Eric

Pours almost clear with no head. Aroma is mostly honey. Taste adds hops up front but still finishes like mead. Interesting experiment.

Picked up single 500ml bottle from Casanova Liquors in Hudson, WI. Pours a clear pinot gris colored mead with a clean disk top and plenty of viscosity tears. Aroma of piney and grapefruit hops, a touch of tart apple and honey. Taste continues the pine and Cascade-like hops, well balanced with sweet honey. Finish has a short-lived sharp spicy hop bitterness followed by sweet honey.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes: Poired a very pale straw color, almost clear, with a small, thin white head that quickly dissipated. Light bubbling along the glass. Light honey-sweet aroma with some grapefruit hops beneath. Body is light, but with a very slight thickness and a brief, dry finish. Interesting flavor, blending sweet honey with a mild bitterness from the grapefruity hops. A bit odd at first taste, but I found it quite drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours a clear pale golden with some spotty bubbling for a head. Aroma of a dry mead with honey, apples, and mild hops. Taste is dry apple and mildly sweet honey followed by bitter hops finishing bitter and almost nutty. Taste is pretty shocking at first while cold but it mellows out and becomes drinkable once it warms. Interesting, might be onto something in the future, may work better with a drier mead.

Bottle; Pour is a pear or chardonnay coloration , with a very modest white head in this glass that retains poorly , a hint of lacing present here. The nose is mild funk, fruit juice, honey comb, and pine. The flavor profile is off putting for me - I picked this up for a new experience, and while it provided that for me it’s not a great end product. More bitterness from the hop profile with a touch of florals, some pineyness present, albeit in an odd fashion - more funk (not in a good way), and there is honey and pear fruit here. Anyway..

On tap at Sugar Maple. Clear medium yellow with no head. Aroma of honey, pine, earthy tones and mild dankness. Taste of honey, pine, spruce and mild floral hops. No real bitterness and a bit of a miss-match in flavors.
