4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the cellar. Original batch. I think I was dissuaded from opening this after my experiences with their other stuff. A few years in the hole seems to have done it some good though. Wet, moldy cork, nearly falls in. Decanted best I could.
Poured into an Ommegang anniversary glass. Clear, lemon lime body. Seems to have developed some carbonation.
Interesting candied pineapple & table grape scent.
Tastes is of sweet green grapes, apple wine, & mild wax. Lavender-ish. Light fizz is a pleasant surprise. A hair thinner then syrupy. Yeasty finish.
A tasty experiment. Thanks for all those replacement bottles Garth.:)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared with my wife. Pours a slightly hazed gold with no head. This is a still mead. Subsequent pourings were more hazed; I didn’t realize there was some minor sediment in the bottle. Pleasant aroma of honey that has a light floral scent and a bit of earthiness to it as well. The flavor follows the aroma and is lightly floral and again also has a bit of earthiness to it. Lightly sweet. Medium bodied. This is a nice, straight-forward mead.
