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.

11/17/12. Sampled at Grassroots in Jacksonville, FL. Pours a clear light gold/pale yellow color. One of their more "standard" offerings for sure, not that there is anything wrong with that. Light floral, honey, and slight alcohol aroma with a flavor to match it. Again, it’s nothing crazy, but it’s a plain, sweet, honey wine, and there’s really nothing wrong with that.

McNeillR (1778) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Very pale, cheap white wine body and no bubbly head with slick trails of lacing. Nose is a bit petrolly soaked elderlower, bit of a wild crunch and light pepperiness. Thumbs up there after a bit. Kinda soapy floral initial taste, wishy washy floral and no real bite. Carbonation is thinly slick but the mouthfeel doubles up with that boozy burn despite the fact it’s 14%. Finishes clean, slips away and a breezy sweet linger. Solid but not quite in their premier good times vibe.

Underdogs88 (261) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Notes of honey and vanilla on the aroma. Straw appearance with a slight haze. Still. Flavor has moderate honey notes with noticeable amounts of vanilla. Sterol alcohol notes are present and detract from the flavor. Medium dry sweetness. Body is medium. Overall, the high levels of sterol alcohols make this an unpleasant mead. Won't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
