3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a light yellow almost neon glow.
Aroma is sweet apple pear,warm,mildly cidery,slightly buttery.
Taste is sweet pear,apple,mild cider,mellow buttery,has some tartness but more in finish with somewhat of a spicey kick at the end.Kinda sweet somewhat balanced with the tartness though. Pretty impressive for my second mead I tried- Had Rogues mead-didnt care for it it was 5% also and dry probably why I didnt like it.This ones good but resembles a sweetish cider to it. Pretty good will like to try it with the spices next time.

4oz glass. Yeah, it’s sweet alright, and kind of syrup-y too, although not quite to a fault. Served semi-cold, it looks a lot like dark-ish white wine, and the taste even reminds me of some super-sweet whites I’ve had as well. Interesting to try once or twice, but I don’t think I’d keep a bottle around the house, even for dessert (I prefer port).

Bottle from Fermentation. Pale golden almost clear pour with decent legs. Flowers, light citrus and honey on the aroma. Flavor very similar with spices and a dry clean finish. Not syrupy or too sweet.

Tried with and without the spices. Much better with the spices they mask the plastic flavor. Was not as sweet as I was expecting which was a good thing.

Thanks for sharing this one, Chipalsa. The nose is sweet honey and alcohol aromas with a chemical smell. Tons of honey aroma. Color is pale yellow. Taste is strong honey with a subdued alcohol presence. A little unrefined but very pleasant. The mulling spices provided added a unique twist to how I’m used to having mead. Cool stuff.

Nose is strongly honey, plastic, and bandaid. Clear yellow. Medium body. Flavor is honey and bubblegum, with a slightly medicinal finish. Flawed, but still enjoyable. The name and label appeal to my inner geek.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Purchased this to try something different. Artificial cork was a dog to get out with a traditional corkscrew. For a product that can’t age, the manufacturer should really consider switching to a screw-cap. But I digress. I drank chilled without the mulling spices. Pours a pale gold, slightly more yellow than a typical white wine. Aroma is nothing to write home about; waxy with sweet honey coming through. First sip yields a taste strikingly similar to a very sweet white wine (somewhere between Pinot Grigio and Moscato) that fades to honey briefly and is lost to a lingering waxy taste and mouthfeel. Makes me think that the company used cheap low-quality honey that was not separated from the beeswax residue before brewing began. Overall, this may be the only true mead for those on a budget and unable to make their own, but this is nothing to write home about.
