3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Bottle: thanks to Kevin for a taste. Pale straw, almost clear with no head. Aroma of strange wet oak, dirty and musty in a sense with quite a bit of sweet honey. Not really getting much orange, here. Taste is sweet honey, light florals, and a bit of finishing, dry oak. Again, not much orange, if any... But maybe orange blossom honey isn’t supposed to taste like orange. Perhaps it’s referring to the color. Not bad, but B. Nektar makes way better stuff. This is a little bland.

Getting some orange in the smell but nowhere else really. Overall not bad. A little boozy. I’d rather try something new than have this one again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
