Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is pale yellow with no head. Aroma is of honey, earth, and floral hops. Flavor is a bit earthy with notes of floral hops, dark honey, booze, and pine. Reminds me of a pale ale mixed with a mead.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at beverage source, pale yellow with ok legs. Aroma is honey and some earthy hop notes. Taste is very white wine like, herbal hops and some honey sweetness but overall its pretty dry. Not too bad but i prefer sweeter meads.

Bottle pour. Pale yellow pour. The aroma is very herbal and clean. Smells sweet and herbal at the same time in an interesting way. Again, this one is dangerous.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at 1808. Pours a still yellow-white color. Nose is some piney hops with some citrus notes, light honey and a mild ooze character. Flavor follows with a bit of booze, some light honey and some hoppy piney character. I understand what they were after, but it just did not resonate with me on this one. Light to medium in body and ok overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from a bottle. Clear yellow pour with no head and no legs. Nose of honey and hops. Musty dry white wine flavor with a hoppy finish. Not my thing. I like hops in my beer, but not so much in my mead.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft... very light straw body, no head... light aroma get more hops than anything, a bit floral, some honey, ok... a very dry mead, easy to drink, more hops but not sweet enough for me, alcohol is hidden really well, I’d like to try more

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Bodega. Pours a crystal clear pale yellow color with a minimal white head that forms an outer ring. Decent legs on the sides of the glass. Aroma of ripe fruit with some dank notes and an interesting Elmer’s paste smell periodically. Medium, semi-dry body with a fruity character and flavors of honey, wood and mild earthy hops in the background. The finish is sweet and fruity. Interesting and pretty enjoyable overall.
