2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 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. 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.

Light honey smell and taste. It’s a pretty plain mead but still good. Medium body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Craig. It pours very pale clear - gold. The nose is soft, sweet, honey, floral, orange blossom and crunchie. The taste is slick, sweet, mellow, earth, honeycomb and some alcohol warmth with a smooth finish. Medium body and slick, oily mouth-feel. Easy - going, but not much depth. Fine.

Sampled from a 750 ml blue corked bottle this Mead poured an extremely pale yellow color with no head and no lacing. The aroma was sweet with muscat grape, tannin and honey. The flavor was sweet with very strong tannin, a bit of honey and ginger. Long finish. Full body.

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.

Perfect intro to beer for the white wine lover. Similar to a dry pinot grigio, but with a hint of flowers and a sweeter aftertaste.
