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.

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, Iím glad itís not overly pungent.
Taste: The flavor is sweet with honey and hints of citrus. After reading the description and seeing itís aged on oak, I guess I can sort of pick of hints of caramel and vanilla, but Iím not sure I would have found it without knowing. I do get a hint of spice and oak, but itís 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, itís what Iíd give to someone if theyíd never had mead. I find it pleasant, soft and easy to enjoy. Well done.

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.
