[Bottle @ Bear Pond WInery] Pale golden color with a small white head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma of pear, honey, green apple, and citrus. Taste of the same, with honey, pear, and tart apple finish.

750ml Bottle. Pours translucent pale yellow. Aromas of canned pears, tart apples, and fresh pear juice, with the slightest waft of alcohol. The flavor is similar with sweet apples and pears, tart green apples, vinous alcohol notes, combined with semi-sweet and boozy honey. Body is thin yet slightly sticky, going down smooth and sweet. Things I didn’t enjoy is the lack of a nose (really had to search for it), and watered down mid-palate taste that cut the fruity notes off from the honey and alcohol. Not bad. but nothing special.

Double blech...Aroma reminds me of Libby’s Fruit Cocktail, maybe even canned pears. Not appealing in the least. Odd part is, the aroma is really only present when the glass is swirled. The flavor is as bad as I have come to fear, sweet apple juice. I admit I am new to mead, but I think the honey needs to have a more noticable presence. I have to agree with boboski in questioning if this even needs to be on the site as it is 70% pear wine. After this one, I might even have to re-visit the cherry mead from the same producer.

Courtesy dsnowden. Pours a clear light yellow color. A little syrupy looking, but not too much. Smells like apples or apple juice in the nose. I guess I get a little pear in there, but its been so long since I smelled a pear that it might not be. The taste has alot more apple than pear in my opinionm but very subtle and crisp. The sweetness isnt overbearing and it goes down really smooth. The pear flavor comes out more in the finish and the aftertaste. Pretty nice citrusy mead. Refreshing and great for desserts. Thanks Dan!

750 mil bottle. Pours a clear, pale gold with no head. Very pleasant sweet aroma of pears and honey. There is also a nice floral aroma present. Flavor is sweet but not syrupy. Pears and honey are obvious flavors. Great as a dessert drink. Very enjoyable. If you’re not into sweet, this beverage is not for you.
