3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very clean and light pour with a tint of yellow. Wonderful nose, very clean and fruity notes with a nice ethereal honey note on the finish. Peppery notes help to avoid a cloying nature. Crisp and lightly spicy in the flavor, soft fruit and mango notes with a light honey background. Medium body with a crisp carbonation and peppery finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 8-06-2015 (Bottle) The appearance is a very small white head, transparent body and fast rising carbonation. The aroma is sweet, mango, honey, earthy, and musty. The flavor is sweet, honey and earthy. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this mead is light bodied. The taste of this mead does not suit my palate very well. A bit too sweet and not to my palate’s liking.

Keg at Ushers. Pours very pale, light white wine. Nose is sweet, apples, fruits, honey, quite cider-like. Taste is also sweet but smooth fizziness and kind of tartness makes if very balanced, mango is also there and black pepper in long finish. Very positive surprise.

Smell is sugar, koolaid, honey, and some other scent that is probably faint mango. Taste is honey, licorice, apple juice, a slight bit of tropical fruit, and maybe some extremely faint pepper taste. Light watery body.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Fermentoren, Århus. Pale yellow body. Sweet and fruity honey aroma. Sweet taste with fruity acidity. Spicy peppery flavour. Medium body with soft carbonation. Peppery finish. A rather unusual mead for me, but tasty nonetheless. It is lighter and more drinkable than most Danish meads, and also the first carbonated mead I have tried.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at AIBF 2015. From tap, clear gold with no head. Aroma with massive fruit notes, some honey and grass. Taste is semi dry with a fruity touch followed by a sharp strain that intensifies. Little too much of the pepper for me, otherwise a nice mead.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 On tap at All In Beer Fest. Smell of honey, flowers and perfume. Sweet fruity taste with flowers honey, cellar and mint. Nice and refreshing. Re-rated after trying it on bottle. I get both black pepper and mango this time. It finishes with a peppery heat. I still get mint though.
