4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This poured a very light yellow color, almost like a champagne with basically no head. Aroma was of light alcohol and very sweet honey. Some yeast in there as well. Flavor was very sweet honey, slight alcohol and some citrusy yeast character too.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the eccentric cafe. Nose is full of sweet rich honey. Pours a pale golden color with almost no head. Tastes of a slightly sweet fruity white wine with some interesting honey notes going on. Fortunately they focused more on the flavor of honey and less on the sweetness. nice full feel in the finish. This was my first mead, and i found it quite interesting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Eccentric Cafe. Pours crystal clear, white wine/champagne in color, no bubbles nor head. Nose is slight honey with some light fruit. Taste is crisp, light fruity, very much like a sweet white wine infused with honey, and mild carbonation. I’m really liking how the honey is an accent in this one, not a massive focus.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Eccentric. Body is gold and aromas are faint and sweet. A little bit of honey, pear and white grape juice. Flavor is similar, but the fruit really pops and takes over the plot. Finish is sweet and fruity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this on tap a few different times at Bells. Really crisp mead, not super sticky like you would think. Very little alcohol, and thin on the tongue. Straight forward flavor, but a really solid beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the eccentric cafe. First mead. a little odd as the aroma is almost nonexistent. Theres a mildly detectable honey and malt combo there with a cloudy coppery/red pour. Flavor is that of honey, bread and a funky metallic touch in there but the 9% is well hidden. Rather dry, with good carbonation.
Different. Not sure what the Vikings saw in this.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My girlfriend ordered this at the cafe and I ended up finishing it. Golden pour, looks and smells like honey. Very sweet flavor with a bit of dryness. Finish is herbal. Too sweet for my taste, but also the first mead Ive ever had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
draft at the brewpub - Pours clear yellow and has a mild honey aroma. It has a very sweet honey flavor that easily buries the alcohol. There’s a slight flowery accent. Enjoyable though more complexity and somewhat toned down sweetness might be better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the Eccentric Cafe. Their first mead, and they still haven’t given it a formal naming. Pours a touch hazy, golden color; headless. Loads of honey and sweetness, floral notes, and minerals in the aroma; hidden alcohol, and a touch of mintiness. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lightly oily, dense honey notes, floral and light herbal / mineral (often minty) notes; very soft edges on this, well-handled; solid, generous, enjoyable mead from Bells. Lengthy finish: honeyed sweetness, sugar, and herbal notes; nicely restrained sweetness at the far end.
