By far the best mead Ive like to date. Nice clear light copper.
Very nice smokey aroma. Unique smell of something youve never smelt.
Smooth sweet honey taste with some acid/tartness to match. very balanced and not overly sweet. Rich dark fruit taste with the medium sweet honey. Cinnaman caramel apples.I really like this as my favorate mead so far. Havent had alot but this kills most of what Ive tried so far.

Im not sure what the other reviews for this one were drinking but man I liked this mead. Really unique smokey taste with light fig flavor and nice herbal honey. A bit thin to be world class but I loved it.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2012
Bottle from New Beer Distro. 1.5 yrs old. Baby Duvel tulip. Don’t understand the low scores for this.
Well chilled. Leggy, shiney, amber orange body.
Smells just like quality, unfermented, raw clover honey. Seriously. Even has a touch of wildflower & soft citrus notes. Darker, maple-y stuff as well.
Taste isn’t as life-changing, but still pretty solid. Very fruity upfront. Mellow plum-ish sweetness. Big apple tartness that cuts any overly sweet notions. Cherry pit. Maple & ash on the finish.
Thin. More honey wine then mead. Lightly slick body. Hidden alcohol. Easy. I’m very surprised.
