Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
Very pale and slightly hazy. Attractive, very floral honey character with subtle orange notes. Very full body, very sweet honey character with light fruit and hints of orange. Good mead but not really a world beater. Needs more complexity for that.

Tmoney99 (12060) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle sample. Poured clear golden color with good legs. Medium to heavy sweet citrus floral and alcohol aroma that lasted even after the liquid was gone. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Medium to heavy balanced sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet alcohol warming finish of moderate to long duration. Complex solid mead.

jtclockwork (11058) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours lemony yellow. Nose/taste of honey, florals, citrus and orange skin. Grainy texture. Very sweet on the palate. Medium body. A bit "hot". Alcohol very prominent in finish.

Drake (10703) - 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.

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Standard gold pour. Lots of floral, orange blossom honey flavors. This is a honey that my parents often had in their house when I was kid. Nice stuff.

Didn’t care for this in the least bit. Had almost a rotten garbage type finish. A bit boozy.

gnoff (8795) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2014
Sampled from bottle as a 4 oz pour at the 7venth Sun brewpub, Dunedin FL, on January 19, 2014.
Clear pear color, no head. Wood, sweet, alcohol, honey, some orange scent. Sweet, wood, alcohol taste. Alcohol, light raisin aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, then dry. Leaves some oily legs on the glass, also some firey alcohol in the breath.

DrSilverworm (8706) - 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.
