It baffles me that this isn't rated higher. This is the single greatest drink I've ever had. Puts a smile in my face every time. Drinks easy with great after taste.

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.

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.

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. Iím really liking how the honey is an accent in this one, not a massive focus.

Draft. Stopped in the brewery and had a little sampler of several beers. Clear light honey color with minimal head. Strawberry fruit type aroma coming off the nose. The taste is sweet as expected but also boozy which I didnít expect. Light mouthfeel. Very clean finishing.

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.

Iím not a huge mead drinker but I enjoyed this. Light pale colour, sweet flower notes int he nose, sweet and winey flavor.

Nice dessert beer. Light oak and honey flavor. Would go great with an apple pie. No need to have more than a couple ounce pour though.

(750ml bottle courtesy of Rayl101 and shared at the Black Friday tasting. Thanks Kevin! #331/487). Pours a pale yellow with slight white head that rings the glass. Looks a bit like a chardonnay. Aroma is honey, flowers, and fruit. Taste is sweet with some citrus. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Smooth finish. Decent stuff.

On tap at Bellís Eccentric Cafe. Not much alcohol. Good honey character with minor orange and a touch of white-wine character. Quite dry. Mild sweetness.
