3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. A honey blurry colored one this with a faint little sidesticking white top. Lots of honey and honey wax in the aroma here. There’s apple zest, the green sour kind with hints of some sort of citrus fruity. Kumquat? Think so. It’s not directly sweet or sour, more of a thing in between. Balanced I guess you can call this. Honey still ks in the taste as well, lots of grass. Sweet nectar, almost tropical with pineapple. Strange finish, but a really cool name. 02.05.2014

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aromas of white wine, raw honey, lemon and green tea. Color is hazy medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, dry, with an almost flat carbonation and has a dry finish. Refreshing, yet dry, the lemon and tea stand right out in this Mead.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (courtesy of BiiruBierBeer) pours with a deep clear gold body that can leave behind thin wiry legs. The big aroma booms with apple and tropical fruit and then a tea like note at the end of the draw. The taste is similar as silky sweet apple notes mingle with mango like tropical fruitiness. Into the finish a pleasing earthy black tea sensation helps dry this out a tad as well as add more depth and richness to the experience.

Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours brassy gold with a slight white head. Aroma is tea. Med body or nearly. Flavor is tea with some citrus and arguably honey. It’s not very dry, but seems somewhat astringent. Very unusual.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to my friend Hunter. Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is lemon cough drop and tea. The taste is like those tea bags you can get that already have the lemon flavor infused into them. Light body with a spritzy mouthfeel. High carbonation. It’s refreshing, but not one of my favorites from B. Nektar.
