3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Tap: very pale, pear & straw colored body with a mild haze & basically no head on top, or any sign of carbonation at all. Aroma is green apple candy with some lighter notes of honey & residual sugar. Mostly sweet, lightly tart. It tastes sort of like liquid green apple Jolly Ranchers, too. Light honey & sugar notes make for a sweet drink with a touch of tartness from the apple character. Can’t believe this is 12% ABV. Pretty tasty stuff.

2012 bottle. This Mead is a crystal clear very pale gold color with decent legs on the glass. Aroma of oak, white grapes and honey. Full-bodied and dry with a vinous character and notes of honey and tart apples. The finish is fruity with a lingering green apple aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The tiny 6oz bottle pours out with a clear body that seems to have a faint gold colored hue to it with a tiny thin stream of bubble ascending from the bottom to the surface. The aroma offers up sweet sugary slick honey like syrup covered apple skins and green apple wedges. The taste has a thin mouth feel thanks to the tiny level of carbonation where it creates some semi bright green apple and apple skin notes as well as smooth sweet honey. It seems to dry out a tad into the finish.
