3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a light amber, with am aroma of honey and really just hints of apple. Flavor is sweet and the honey is up front with the apple in the background. Taste is nice, but the apple is not all the prominent or all that interesting, and the subtle complexities of some meads is missing. Finishes sweet but not sticky or overdone, with a mild alcohol burn. Nice, but I like their maple mead better.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just a nice layer of honey in the aroma that isn’t too sweet but without any apples. The flavor isn’t quite as tasty as the aroma but it’s still nice. Easy to drink and doesn’t give you a headache. Looking forward to trying some of the others.

750, corked and waxed. Thanks, Adam! These are all really solid. Pours a crystal clear pale gold. Nose has bright green apple acidity perfectly blended with a nice floral honey quality. Creamy medium body. The flavors work very well together here. Apples and honey create something new that’s a bit more than the sum of its parts. A little on the sweet side. Approachable and very easy to imagine drinking way too much of without realizing it if you’re in the mood for a dessert drink.
