3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very syrupy amber pour...clinging long on the sides of my snifter, as well as my sample glass! Very, very, very alcoholic nose, but some herbal, floral notes underneath that. Intensely sweet honey flavor, big (HUGE) alcohol, and lots of floral flavors. Massively sweet and alcoholic, with some moderate floral highlights. Good!

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured at Vintag Estates, nice place. What can I say, this is wine. Darker pale yellow. Aroma is sweet. First taste is quite strong and winelike. Sweet mouthcoating wine, viscous to an extent. No carbonation, just flat wine. Of course honey prominent. A little meaty. Better than many beers. Finish is typical and the same as many sweet wines.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My first mead ever so I don’t know how it compares. Pours clear amber, sweet honey spice aroma and the taste is much the same. Enjoyable but not something I will go out of my way to try.
