Tap sample at Neons. I thought about grabbing this for a few years whenever I saw it on the shelf at Wine and Cheese Place, but when I saw it available for a $4 small pour, I couldnt resist any longer. Pours a clear gold color with no head. Notes of honey, apple caramel, and a slate of herbs and spice - herbs, ginger, pepper, and cinnamon. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, chewy, spicy mouthfeel that finishes dry. Good mead. Hit the spot.

This one poured a thick syrupy pinkish orange with no had. Aroma was of honey and red fruits and booze. Flavor was similar, very sweet, lots of alchohol and honey and dark fruit flavors. Ok.

Bottle share thanks to estover. Holy moly this stuff will mess you up. It pours a clear orangey copper color. Smells like booze and nail polish remover. Good thing I only got a small pour. This is all you need. Incredibly astringent.

RABinCO (1365) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Danish pour. Nice light golden hay pour. Looks like a very light scotch. Big boozy aroma with hints of sweetness and floral aromas. Taste is incredibly smooth. Fruity, floral, sweet. Nice warming booze burn, but nothing off putting. Great cool weather sipper.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle sampled at Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours a hazy orange color with very strong legs. Aroma of intense honey, citrus, spice, earth, vanilla, raisins. The taste is sweet honey, raisin, booze, vanilla, citrus, floral notes. Full bodied, strong booze, quite nice.

jmohno (1102) - Iowa, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Hazed orange appearance. Musty aroma with hibiscus,caramel,light floral honey. Smooth slick sweet, generally hibisus in majority of flavor with light perfumy-cologne must woodyness.Orange flavor.Very slightly planty from the hops maybe but otherwise not really any hop presence,more of hibiscus. Sweet finish with light citrus tartness. Not that boozy. More sweet and strong than I like.

KyotoLefty (6561) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle at Yespr. Fruity, citrus, orange, honey nose. Amber-orange color. Huge honey flavor, fruity, tangy, with oranges. Cloying but the honey flavor is lovely.

Blairgus (2639) - California, USA - AUG 18, 2013
18 aug 2013, tap. Yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is like ginger ale and roses. Full body, syrupy, a bit fizzy. This is a serious, syrupy, ginger beer. Ginger bite with some fair grassy hop finish. I guess there is alcohol presence. Hard to decide what is alcohol since ginger and hibiscus are so strong and it is syrupy. I couldn't drink much. Actually, 4oz is a bit too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a little thicker than a nice wine. Smells very floral with a bit of bite to the aroma. Odd golden colour, worst colour of the Dansk Mjd selections in my opinion. It has no head, but its wine so it shouldnt be expected. Tastes like honey with floral notes and hops. Thick on the pallette, but not as thick as other selections from Dansk Mjd. Excellent mead. The ~$33 price tag is hefty but for good reason 1) better mead than what your pay $10-$15 and 2) remember it is coming from Denmark.

The aroma is honey, flowers, fruit. The appearance is clear amber, no head. The flavor is fruit, honey, citrus and flowers. Bright, sweet. The finish uis boozy, sweet. Medium in body. Cant specifically pick out hops or hibiscus. Enjoyable, and expensive.
