As close to perfection as I have seen in a mead. The aroma and flavor are ginger, honey and a bit more ginger, with the heat of the ginger tempered perfectly by the rich honey sweetness. Simply stunning.

Tasted at B. Nektar with clear watery gold body and a near super thin head. The aroma offers up a nice mix of ginger and earthiness as well as honey sweetened dusty gravel like notes. The taste is semi sweet with smooth even un-obtrusive ginger notes moving into honey and sweet waxy earthiness. Pretty smooth and yummy.

Pours a wonderful light golden hue. Holy ginger the aroma is all ginger, nothing artificial here just pure raw ginger. The flavor exudes ginger even more than the aroma. Tons of fresh peeled ginger. There is a wonderful honey sweetness to provide some balance, but the ginger still shines. Love the hint of raw ginger burn in the finish. A masterpiece of a mead!

375 ml bottle. Pours a clear brilliant gold with no head. This is a still mead. The aroma is absolutely filled with ginger along with some underlying notes of sweet honey. I donít know that Iíve ever had a ginger beverage with more ginger aroma than this. The flavor is again all about the ginger. There is some sweet honey beneath the surface, but is dominated by the fresh ginger. The heat rises quickly and lingers for quite a while at the back of the throat. Iíd call it strong and consistent heat. Wow! As the description says, this is for ginger lovers. My wife, who loves fresh ginger, had some and really enjoyed this.
