3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Intersting. Hazy copper. Nose mostly apples and the taste mostly the same. Some intersing feel to it, kind of like a film from the apple skin like if you eat too many apples with a dry mouth. Thought it was a cider not a mead.

I didn’t think this was terrible. My first mead...it was like an apple cider with a bit of lambic funk going on. Aroma was tart and yeasty...flavor was sour and funky...mouthfeel was extremely light and lowly carbonated.

the problem with this offering was just that there was nothing going on. way too straightforward and one-dimensional. sour and appleish, i forced myself to finish it. pretty lousy.

Had a great and strong apple cider aroma. Flavor was absolutely awful. Really sour and tart. Lots of alcohol and just unpleasent to drink. Pale yellow with no head. A lot like a lambic gueuze

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Bell’s Eccentric Cafe: Well it looks like I am in the minority here but I liked it. Clear and looks like apple juice but more syrupy. Legs run up the glass. Sweet aroma with nice floral notes. Apples and a big honey appearance. The honey was mostly in the aroma and not as much in the flavor (which works just fine with me). the flavor was of sweet and moderately tart apples. Some honey on the finish. It is like a floral hard cider.

Had a sample glass of this at the brewery last year, nothing remarkable. I cleared my palate and started over.

On tap at the brewery. Pours cloudy yellow with little or no head. THIS IS NOT A MEAD by the way. I agree with the former posts. The tangy sour puckery palate smacks you in the face pretty quickly. Strong apple flavor. A couple gulps was enough for me...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light yellow pour...no head. Sweet apple aroma. Light texture and mouthfeel. Very tart/sour fruitiness in flavor...like hard apple cider gone "off". Maybe a hint of honey.

Cyser was available at the cafe throughout the summer. Golden color, quite fizzy. Aroma of apples. Taste is quite sour, to put it this way: I didn’t know that mead was mixed in until I was told.

On tap at Bells 20th anniversary party. A orange gold color with a very thin fizzy head. Nose is very sweet apples and has a winey dryness to it. Taste is very tart and sour and dry. all at once it seems. Your lips pucker and your cheeks cave in from the sourness.
