COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve taken the traditional Arnold Palmer and meadified it. "Dry hopped" black tea with honey and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Maybe we should can this one so we can bring it to the golf course.

Pinball (10973) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2015
"traditional" mead in scandinavia is fortified and at between 18% and 21% usually, and the flavor is fantastic, but a pretty hardcore boozy honey experience. Here we have a mead at 1/3rd the low range of ordinary, and this viking is expected to consume... well... why not.. cloudy yellow, small white head. citrussy honey wild yeasty, tea aroma, very slightly herbal, refreshing and exotic. flavor is exotic fruits, lemon juice, tea, some honey, some malts, sort of like a really in your face strong radler, with some honey on top. tasty.. i’d like to see something along these lines brewed with a scandinavian mindset.

Excellent session mead, not too sweet and with a please aftertaste of tea. Refreshing.

orangesol (934) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Really does smell and taste like a sweeter version of the Arnold Palmer. Lots of tea up front and then the lemony sweetness comes in and all is well. Another interesting experimental mead from B. Nektar, keep them coming guys!

Martinus (3183) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2015
Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of honey, lots of tea, lemons. Honey flavour, lemon, tea. Finish wood like notes and tea.

Kleurplaatje (57) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2015
Pours hazy orange with no head at all. Tends to look like liquid honey, which isn’t surprising if you ask me. Aroma is honeyish as well. There is a clear note of it, accompanied with some citrus fruits, flowers and a tad of alcohol. Something musty as well. Bit of a winey nose if you ask me. Taste is pretty tart and sweet with clear fruity notes of apple, lemon, berries... Finish is definitely tea. You get a clear tea-like feeling on the tongue accompanied with a refreshing hoppy bitterness. Sirupy texture and a sticky mouthfeel, medium bodied with soft carbonation. Somehow, I like it. It has a nice lingering sweetness accompanied with a refreshing ’dryish’ bitterness, making it an ideal replacement thirst quencher on a nice summer eve instead of beer (e.g. an IPA). Definitely gonna try more meads after this one.

LoFi (1627) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
Brewdog Bar GBG, week before Christmas. Murky orange, minimal head. Fruity with peach, plum, prune juice, tart-ish, honey, orange, lemon. There is a healthy vibe here I am not too fond of, although I am not sure where the prune juice taste comes from.

yespr (33077) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2014
From tap. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is floral and mild fruity aroma. Smooth fruity, floral and sweet. Lingering smooth floral finish.

Clarkdvm (188) - Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle in Florida. Odd smell- bit like rotten urine. Prominently honey flavor with astringent aftertaste. Not worth the expense.

olsvammel (3641) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget (privatimport). Smell of flowers, honey and citrus. Taste of lemon with a citrus sourness, also honey and flowers. Refreshing.

Poured a medium orange amber with minimal head. Aroma of light honey sweetness, light citrus. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, not that impressive.
