3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Samís Quik Shop. Pours clear pale straw gold with a light frizzante carbonation. Nose shows honey, light mango and pepper, with notes of young wood and tart wild apples. An odd but not bad herbal note. The parts come together in a unique whole. Taste starts sweet but ends quite dry, especially for the style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from World Market in Redwood City (Dated 05/14). Aroma is white wine and mango. Taste is sweet, fruity white wine with some dryness. Not getting much of the pepper. A bold effort but I was happier when it was over. Extra points for the B. S-mart / Evil Dead tie-in.

Bottle from Au Trappiste, Bern
Pale blond color. Light product, elegant, fruity, lightly sweet, floral, peppery, dryish in the final.
Iím not sure this should be called mead, but itís a good drink.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like white wine, no head. Fruity aroma. Fruity sweet cider taste, no carbonation. A bit bitter and hot spicy touch at the end. Refreshing, but it us difficult to notice that this is a beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, straw appearance like a white wine. Smells like mango, jasmine flowers, black pepper, honey, apple, and a spice I canít put my finger quite on, maybe basil or something. Tastes much the same, a bit of sweetness, a bit of tarntess and the black pepper fits in suprisingly well. Not much carbonation and kind of thin bodied
Wasnít sure how all of the flavors would work together but it seems like they pulled it off. The spice seems to help balance the sweetness

courtesy of fiulijn - pale straw yellow color, aroma of cider, mango and apples; moderate body and a long honeyish and fruity finish with a late and long lasting sharp peppery presence - a mead with different layers, fresh and pleasant

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale, bubbly straw yellow. Sharp aroma has fruity and honey notes, inviting a taste. Flavor is definitely different and refreshing - honey that is not overly sweet, mango, a bit of sour apple. Texture has, well, I suppose average viscosity and a subtle but lasting fizz. After the mead has headed downstairs, your mouth is still a-buzziní. Black pepper peeps out in the finish. I definitely should try some more meads - only problem is they do tend to be rather spendy.
