Aromas of lush honey, and flowers usher in a rewarding sensery experience. An orangish amber pour sets the stage for the taste of sumptuously smooth round honey coupled with floral notes and a suggestion of hops. This drink is pure heaven… or should I say Valhala. Now I know why the Viking warriors wanted to go there.

By the Gods who made this? Billund needs to up the game a bit. What in the name of Woden are the bees feasting on here pig fat and Lego? No wonder the Vikings went marauding to the coasts of Scotland where they would found Moniack Mead.

degbert (1201) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours reddish-orange with a light haze. Nose is honey, lime, berry, and a gentle floral note. Flavor is...amazing. Just amazing. Primal and essential, rather than sanitized and filtered; it’s so Nordic one glass makes me want to go sack a monastery. Finish is long and aromatic. Brilliant.

Bottle 700ml @ home
Pours clear deep golden with no head. Aroma is sweet with notes of honey, raisin and alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet with a long warm, honey and raisin finish. Body is full, texture is sticky, no carbonation.

onceblind (4623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Slightly hazy dark copper with a sweet dark nose of brown sugar, boozy cherry, and a dark honey tone. Flavor is dark and super sweet, a bit of cherry syrup, a kiss of maple, some wood, dark beeswax, and a boozy sweet brown sugar heat.
