3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served on draft at Beer Run. My first time having a mead on draft and my first South Africa rating. Woot! This is the
Zymatore version aged on French oak. Pours a clear yellow color with slight legs. The taste is honey, floral notes, earth
and citrus. The taste is sweet honey, citrus, wood and a slight medicinal quality. Medium bodied with lingering warmth.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Honey and some spice in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet but with a vinegar finish. Not something I’ll try again.

Tap at Smoke and Barrel- Zymatore version from B. United. Flat, clear orange pour with decent legs. Starchy and sweet nose similar to Chinese rice wine. Taste is super iron metallic with blood iron content and sticky sweet syrup. Vinegar in the finish. Oh bleh. Go away.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Smoke and Barrel, Zymatore series from B. United. Nose and flavor are marked with touches of honey, apricot, further stone fruit, touches of white wine (sauvignon blanc), and honey sweetness. Dries out quite impressively on the end of the palate, particularly considering the 13% alcohol. Pretty nice!

Barely any smell, pours like liquor. Tastes very sweet, but dries or your mouth. Finishes dry and clean.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
May 2007 - I have no idea how to rate meads. Immensely floral aroma...honeysuckle flowers. Very flowery taste of honeysuckle. Not overly sweet...I prefer this to the sickly sweet Apis Japwidgeakaeeka (however you spell it), but I couldn’t drink too much of this.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled mead from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a and a poor lacing. The aroma was honey. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The thick flavor contained notes of honey and was dry. An OK mead just nothing special.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This didn’t make the cut for me. I like meads, preferably sweet ones, but also a few dry ones. This wasn’t pleasant. The expected honey color with no head was there but the aroma was off-putting. Funky in a negative way. Smooth mouthfeel. The flavor was unappealing.
