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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to FlandersNed for this one in trade. This was a HUGE want. I appreciate it, Steve. Pours a still clear gold that wants a green hue. Nose is honey, some booze, green apples/ granny smith, pears, and some vinous (oak) tartness. Flavor is green apple, sweet, honey in front, apples in the mid and riesling in the back. Body is thin like a riesling and some almost oaky tartness/ dryness in the finish. Nice pyment.
