COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When we set out to produce a sparkling Orange Blossom mead it was with the intention of capturing as much of the Orange Blossom essence -- that rich, almost tropical, floral aroma that one experiences when driving by an Orange Grove during spring bloom -- as humanly possible. We're ecstatic about the results. The varietal is effortless to enjoy yet offers plenty of complex floral orange depth to contemplate. White straw in color, bright, dry and clean. Food Pairing Serve with any dish that accommodates a refreshing chilled wine with floral/citrus notes, such as fresh fruits, salads...perhaps even a ceviche!

Krausen (102) - USA - DEC 29, 2007
Flowery & perfumy with a prominant tangerine, peach and coconut aroma. The body is light, much like champagne with a very odd cloying sweetness. It is strange to have such a sweet flavor with such a dry finish. Slight passion fruit and orange in the flavor, but this is a bottle meant to be shared...with like 6 friends! Interesting, but not something I would order a second glass of in the same sitting.

Bule (687) - California, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Taste at Beercraft. Pours a pale straw color. Huge fruity aroma like a late harvest wine. Fine sparkling bubbles followed by some fruitiness that dissipates into a blander sugar taste.

hayduke (3317) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 7, 2010
I got this at a silent auction at the Humboldt County Library fund raising auction almost a year ago and finally got around to drinking it. From the corked and caged bottle the poured a light yellow color with small and quickly fading white head. Nose of oranges and honey. Mouthfeel light and sparkling, kind of like syrupy Champaign, but quite pleasant on the tongue. Flavor is fruity with orange and orange blossom. High alcohol content is well hidden. It finishes as it starts and overall is quite enjoyable.

Corked bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival 2007 afterfestival at Akkurat
Hazy light blond color. Original aroma, very flowery, like a mountain field in spring. The mouthfeel is quite dry, despite the sweetness, a bit acidic. Interesting, but not exceptional.
