Can scores major points with me. Color is very pale and it has a wonderful fizz to it. Sparkling indeed. Aromas are wildflower honey and waxy comb. Hints of flowers as well.. Flavor is very nice yet mild. Comb honey with a nice light botanical flavor. Subtle cider notes and a touch of wood. Light and it drys out in the finish. Could slay this by the pool or at the beach on a sunny Florida afternoon.

Smells like cheap booze and honey. Carbonated light wight golden body and white head. Taste like bitter apple with a burnt nuttyness and an earthy old fart. Crisp and dry on the palate.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tart green apple and sweet honey up front, then an after thought of vanilla aroma. Tiny bit of head from carbonation with a pale golden color. More of a fizzy cider than anything. Although the honey is very much noticeable. Better than a Woodchuck, but not by much.

Can. I just donít get this one. It dosenít really taste like mead to me. Itís more like beer that has had a like honey, apple and maybe just a touch of vanilla flavor. Not too good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Whole Foods Chattanooga - pours clear pale yellow with some bubbles. More accurately this is a cyser (cider + mead), thatís heavy on the cider side, as indicated by the relatively low alcohol, when compared to your average mead. That said, I didnít get much of the honey elements, mainly just tart green apples. Itís not bad, but I was disappointed by the effort. Meh.
