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.

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.

750ml bottle. Pours light gold. Aroma and taste is undeniably orange blossom honey that has some sweetness cut by the oak.

TheGDBatPan (13) - Rolling Meadows, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2015
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.

Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Pour is clear pale golden with no head, but decent lacing. Aroma and flavor of pale malt, oak, light honey, orange peel, floral, and apples. Finish is sweet and semi-boozy.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle.
Appearance: Pale clear golden body, nice clarity and color.
Aroma: The aroma is faint, but smells sweet of hints of oranges and honey. Nice aroma, I’m glad it’s not overly pungent.
Taste: The flavor is sweet with honey and hints of citrus. After reading the description and seeing it’s aged on oak, I guess I can sort of pick of hints of caramel and vanilla, but I’m not sure I would have found it without knowing. I do get a hint of spice and oak, but it’s very subtle. The finish has some heat and lingering sweetness that sort of reminds me of PlayDoh.
Palate: Full-bodied, sort of juice like.
Overall: I enjoy this mead a lot, it’s what I’d give to someone if they’d never had mead. I find it pleasant, soft and easy to enjoy. Well done.

jdb288 (584) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Pours a clear yellow orange. Aroma has orange, oak and honey. Slightly floral. Taste is sweet, honey obviously taking the lead. Orange notes are nice and the woody characteristics give some depth. Like a sweet (sweeter) Pinot. Interesting.

LearninBeer (418) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2014
Had at the Meadery, the aroma is light orange and honey. Pours a clear yellow/orange. The taste is light sweet honey. The body is light, the texture thin, the carbonation soft and the finish semi-long. Very good.

gnoff (8377) - 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 (9072) - Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Didn’t care for this in the least bit. Had almost a rotten garbage type finish. A bit boozy.
