esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Sample at B Nektar Meadery. Translucent pale yellow with no head. Aroma of honey, orange and oak. Taste s heavy on the honey with some vanilla and orange/citrus notes as well. Finishes up hot and sweet.

gnoff (7445) - 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.

crossovert (6352) - Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Didn’t care for this in the least bit. Had almost a rotten garbage type finish. A bit boozy.

SpongeRuiner (568) - Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2013
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.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 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.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle from Knightly Spirits
Appearance - Pale yellow, minimal bubbles
Aroma - Honey, pollen, vanilla
Taste - Oak, melon, oranges, honey

This is a pretty solid mead, and it finishes with a hint of acidity.

3.5
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
Drake (7945) - 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.

BSchnab (118) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2013
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

wheresyourball (445) - El Cajon, California, USA - MAY 5, 2013
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.

48FanInCali (663) - California, USA - MAY 4, 2013
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
