3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ceramic bottle, courtesy of Geokkjer. A dark golden body with no head. Lovey vinous aroma of honey, flowers and perfume. Flavour is sweet, vinous, not to heavy honey and floral. Fine body and a long, sweet aftertaste. Nice, tasty and very harmonic, not to sweet and raw on the honey side, as I prefer my mead.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, dark golden to amber body, flat and still. The aroma has a nice lightly spiced honey scent and some flowery hints. Some citrus peel in the far back. Medium body, quite dry, with some residual sweetness chiming in. There’s honey and flowers in the flavor, some citrus and dried fruits. Lasting finish with honey and flowers. Certainly a nice mead, well worth a revisit. 130309

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Still reddish brown pour. Sweet honey and berry aroma. Smooth honey, medium body and a touch of alcohol in the taste. Good mead, not great and I think it was a lot better cold. Warmth seemed to bring out some harshness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, in Warsaw
Dark amber color, like brown gold. The aroma, sweet, has evident plum presence in it; sweet but not sticky, like the Apis family, the alcohol burns a bit too much (but it has been served at 28°C), the flavor, not much honeish indeed, has plums too; the final is rather short.

Aroma of menthe, basil, apple, cherry and honey. Dark bronze, no head. Easy to drink, but I’ve had better honey meads.
