There is a lot if strength in this, strong flavor with orange nose and mild spice packs a punch. Drink slowly

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with just a hint of visable carbonation. Aroma has light spice and light hops with a nice sweet honey with a hint dryness. Flavor starts with spice and sweet honey that grows and becomes more bitter with a hint of booze.

Bottle thanks to theAlum. Gorgeous mead here. Pours gold and still. Nose is super clean and aromatic. Light vanilla but the orange blossom remains incredibly persistent. Fresh and forward, the essence of the honey is here. Light fruit to the nose, super clean without any fermentation issues. On tasting, lush on the palate. Balanced acidity with a medium sweet finish that is never cloying. Incredibly fresh and the essence of orange blossom honey. So much better than the B.Nektar non-BA OB meads. Simply world class.

Bottle from Magsinva. Pours golden with some vanilla notes on the nose. A bit thin on the tongue. Sweet of course with a hint of vanilla. Itís nice but itís not knocking my socks off.

bottle from State line liquor - pours a clear orange-gold with no head. Big oak, vanilla, orange, and honey nose. taste is sweet with some smokey heat from the oak & alcohol. palate finishes a bit dry. While it is awesome, Iím not sure itís $40 bucks awesome, which is what I paid for it.

Thanks Rich for a nice woodshop pour! Clear gold pour. Aroma hits up front with some wildflower and orange blossom honey notes, with a lightly spicy and woodsy aroma. Flavor is sweet and has something earthy and spicy going on that I wasnít quite able to pinpoint.
