3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold-yellow. Nose is honey, herbs, hops, and a touch of baking ginger. Sweet and spicy on the tongue, with an overtone of herbaceous hops. Finish is long and sweet with a bitter edge. Very nice; the hops cuts the sweetness and the ginger adds a contrasting heat.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aromas of honey and ginger combine with floral and herbal notes comprise the nose. Pours a pale, slightly hazy straw hue. The taste is pleasingly sweet, but is balanced with the ginger and hop flavors. Medium-full body and smooth carbonation. Smooth, round mouthfeel. Overall, an extremely well crafted and enjoyable mead.

Brief write-up. I don’t have much experience on meads, but this one was damn good. There’s a slight burn, but nothing to suggest it’s 19%. Having said that, it’s insanely sweet, with tons of honey flavor. A touch of palate burn makes itself known, as well.
