Transparent light yellow, akin to a white wine. Honey and apple aroma with vanilla, oak, whiskey. Sweet, syrupy. Heavy booze and dessert like sweetness. Well done and flavorful in small doses. A good bottle to share.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Wade. Flat pour, slightly hazed light-straw color. Aroma of super boozy honey with a little bit of musty wood. Very boozy. Almost solvent-like. Taste isnít solventy but thereís still a huge warmth to it. Seems more balanced, though, because itís also super sweet. Tons of clover honey with lingering residual sugars. A touch of tannin, wood. But mostly booze & honey. Warming finish. Not bad, but thereís nothing really exciting about this.

Bottle: The aroma consists of alcohol, light honey, and a hint of floral notes. It pours a slightly hazy dull yellow with no head. The flavor starts with a moderate honey. The finish has some vanilla with a hint of alcohol. Itís medium bodied with no carbonation. Overall, this doesnít taste a boozy as it smells.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle tasted at RBSG grand tasting post-tasting. Honey and good rye whiskey in the nose. Clear golden slight orange color. Awesome wildflower honey aroma in the flavor, love it. Moderate to bigger body. Smooth, kind of slick, lighter carbonastion. More slick finish. Awesome rye whiskey wildflower mead. Starting to see a distinction in this type of honey, and I dig it every time. 19%?! Hides ABV super well.
