Bottle. Pours neon yellow with falling legs. It has an interesting molasses-like aroma, kind of "dark," for lack of a better word, with deep wildflower, honey, and cork. The flavor is very floral with some profound honey tones and some syrupy grain notes. Pretty smooth.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle consumed alongside Tronraner and crew. This mead pours semi-thick with plenty of tiny little white floaties disperesed throughout the liquid. Even, slowly descending legs are left on the sides of the snifter after a good swirl. This has a very floral, ala hibiscus, nose with not subtle-at-all honey. Oh, and a weird scent of cheese or, less pleasantly, sneakers. Mouth feel is fairly coating and has assertive, though not overdone, honey throughout. Tons of flowers and soft-wood notes refresh my palate. This is decent mead, the one strange thing in the smell is the only real downside in my opinion.
