(12oz bottle) clear very light yellow, excellent lacing. Nose of wildflower, honey, banana, spices, French toast, light bourbon. Taste is equally complex, banana, touch of bourbon, medium sweet, no heat at all despite the 16%, winter spices, quick palate finish but delicious and complex.

kermis (9995) - Zeeman, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle shared, 2012 vintage. Pours clear golden with a few bubbles that disappear quickly. Aroma of spice upfront, Christmas spices, cinnamon, hazelnut coming out, honey, floral notes, light perfume, banana, oak, toffee and vanilla. Flavour is light heavy sweet. Warming in the palate and the finish, you can tell the alcohol is there but it’s not in a nasty way. It comes across slightly watery in the start but quickly develops into a heavy spice and long sweet middle/finish with some raisin and overripe dark fruit aspects coming out. On of the most complex meads I’ve tried.

deanso (8626) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle courtesy of and shared with Kermis. Almost no head. Clear golden pour. Clear barrel notes in the aroma and taste. Very good

SlovakSniper (4984) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2015
Un 2 onces dans une petite tulipe. Une robe de vin blanc. Des bulles au versement. Un nez floral avec de la cannelle, de la vanille et du bourbon poivré, des fruits et du bois. Un goût d’épices et de bourbon avec du miel et une douceur fruitée qui m’échappe. Au palais, un corps huileux avec une effervescence fine. En finale, un alcool parfumé un peu chaud et piquant. Bizarre mais bien agréable.

Minderbinder (3264) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
Sample. [2015] Pours clear greenish yellow with no head. Some legs. Aroma is of perfume, flowers, alcohol, medical syrup. Taste is of perfume, strong alcohol, flowers, weird nuts, blood, rotten fruits and fat. Palate: Full bodied. No carbonation. Sticky. Warming alcohol. Overall: Oh boy. Quite cloying. Almost undrinkable. Too bold, very boozy. Medical syrup-like. Drain pour.
