2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500mL bottle purchased at RoCo in West Sac. The aroma on this has plenty of tea character with a little bit of sweetness. Fairly floral and herbal in nature. Not sure I am a fan of the aroma, however. Fairly hazy dark golden-rusty body with a small, quite rapidly dissipating white head. Starts with a little sweet honey character, before lots of pretty straight-forward tea flavors take over. This is pretty straight-forward and as close to an alcoholic "Arnold Palmer" that it gets.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden with a tiny white lace head. Pure honey cent, some elderflower, fruity esters, even some walnut. Tart start, citrus and bitters of the tea coming through beautifully, giving a nice balance to the honey sweetness. Nice soft carbo... Don’t understand the low ratings - yes this goes close to winebut this is very tasteful stuff.

Bottle from Beergium. Hazy orange pour with no head. Huge raw honey aroma with almost nothing else to it, a little bit like an open bee hive. Hints of black tea and lemon in taste, but honey is still very dominant. Very sweet with a dry honey finish.

This really wasnt for me... Strange flavours from the tea and a bit artificial taste to it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 8-05-2015 - The appearance a hazy pale yellow body and very little carbonation. The aroma is honey, fruity and lemony. The flavor is honey, sweet and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this mead is medium bodied. This mead does not have much aroma and the taste is bland and boring. Overall a boring mead to rate and drink.
