Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2013
750 mL bottle from Greenlife, Asheville. Pours a clear very pale yellow color. No head, moderate legs. Vinous, winey aroma with notes of citrus and wax. The taste is sweet honey, citrus, faint wood, fruity finish and a bit of hot wax. Medium bodied, fairly hot. Good mead, but I’m still not digging orange blossom honey as base for mead.

Aroma is dry wine. Appearance is light golden can easy see through, taste is sweet orange that stays on your palate, overall a little sweet but very good

Bottle at the end of a share. Pours clear gold color with medium citrus and floral nose. Sweet flavor with medium to full body. Complex and very good.

750ml bottle. Light golden flat pour. Nose of citrus, honey, and warm sugar. Tastes follows the nose with a sweet finish. A tinge light on the palate but a solid mead as a whole. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle courtesy of Vincent. Poured a viscous, light yellow, near clear. Notes of citrus, honey, oak, floral notes. Pretty boozy.

PhillyCraft (3326) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle shared with Simon, Keith, Tom, Joe and Brie. Clearish pour, notes of floral peppermint, candy cigarettes, honey. Too boozey for 14% and too much perfume in this mead. Mouthfeel was very spicy and astringent. Not a fan of this one from B Nektar.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Sample from a 750ml bottle. Totally clear, nearly colorless body. Maybe the palest of yellows. No head or lace, but decent legs visible. Orange, honey, and prominent oak wood nose. Floral smells too. Sweet taste. Alcohol warmth, but no burn, but a light bite. Floral and oak flavor, with an orange blossom finish. Just had the B. Nektar Wildberry Pyment before this, much preferred that.

b3shine (5577) - Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a still, transparent (almost perfectly clear) light gold. Smells of honey and light oranges. Tastes like it smells, only better, with great orange balance and a creamy finish. Tastes much richer than it smells.
