3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A treat to see this on tap at a bar. Exciting first sip--white wine dominates but with a layer of complexity that is more fruity, suggesting a touch of cherry and a touch of mosquito repellant (a very light chemical note). I eat pomegranates all the time and I’m still not sure what they taste like. Very light color. Interesting, reasonably enjoyable. (on tap, The Old Fashioned, Madison, WI)

Draught sample, 23/viii/13 Sugar Maple, Milwaukee. First US mead from the heart of green heartland WI. Apple and white grape sweet like in an aged cider, with a very subtle pepper kick. Smooth, surprisingly non-sticky sipping.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My third from Bos and easily the best so far. Pour from a clear bottle. Light golden color, some carbonation though the head goes away after just a few seconds. Nose is mostly grape, as is the taste. Its a subtle mead. Very wine-like, which is probably the crowd Bos is going for here...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft from The Old Fashioned in Madison, served in a goblet. My wife forgot I ordered this and that she tried some and thought it was just okay, so she got it again at GTMW. Pours a clear white wine color with no head. Notes of honey, pomegranate, honeysuckle and other wildflowers, grape, and straw. Medium-bodied, with a vinous mouthfeel and no carbonation. Good mead that drinks like a white wine.
