3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sampled at the Mead Mountain tasting on 1/8/11. Very light yellow in color. Aroma of pear, honey and dry white wine. Agave is noticeable in the flavor, along with honey and a dry lemon finish that’s almost a tad minty. Probably my favorite of the drier meads I’ve had from Bacchus.

Pours a nice, subtle yellow with an aroma of chalky Pepto Bismol. Flavor is chalky Pepto Bismol with a clove/honey finish. Slick mouthfeel. What the heck is up with the Pepto flavor?
