COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional mead made with wildflower honey from the thumb area of Michigan. The honey makes a richly complex mead, full of aromas and flavors of many of Michigan’s natural flora. We age this mead on American oak wich softens it and adds some nice vanilla notes.

Pour on tap at the meadery, clear yellow with no head, aroma has cat pee, urine, hints of earth, some honey, floral notes, touch of fruit in there but really pee forward. Taste is a mix of lots of floral notes, bitter grass, some soap, touch of honey, finishing boozy, slightly sweet.

Bottle. Pale clear yellow pour, with a few small bubbles. Sweet honey, very floral, a bit of spritzy citrus, and oak. Finishes slightly dry. Tasty, somewhat refreshing actually.

LearninBeer (363) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2014
The aroma is honey and some vanilla. Pours a clear light yellow. The taste is sweet. The body is light, the texture thin, the carbonation soft and the finish long. Very good just a touch of alcohol.

Very standard mead. Flowery like a mouthful of sweet flowers. Does nothing for me.

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Hazy light straw body, no head. Sharp nose of honey and potpourri. Sweet, sweet body. Like, very sweet, with some floral tannic elements but still sugary as hell. If hell is sugary. Which it probably isn’t, except that implies hell exists, which it doesn’t. But forgive these saccharine digressions and take away this: this is one sweet-ass motherfucking mead.

75 cl bottle at home. Thanks to RamyG4 for this one! Pours very light yellow with no head. Sweet and heavy on the nose. Honey, herbs, oak. Mouthfeel is oily and taste is sweet with warming alcohol. Lots of honey sweetness, flowers and spices. Nice one.

Another great mead, smelled and tasted like Wildflower, but perhaps the taste was more on the oaky side with a light tart towards the finish. B. Nektar never lets me down.
