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.

looks like a watery white wine wine... smells like a Riesling, interesting, hints of oak, apple, and honey, I like this... the taste is way too light and basically drinks like a water, a light wine finish, a hint of honey, the riesling is gone, this should have worked better since Riesling’s are so sweet... good start, bad finish

Bouteille partagée avec Askofficerfriendly
Dorée claire apparence de blé.
Arôme, pomme avec arrière note de miel allant sur l’organique.
En bouche, pomme verte/miel gardant une fine note d’amertume venant des pommes ainsi que cet aspect naturel et bio du miel, le tout laisse un goût sucré collant sur les lèvres. Toujours un régal.

Bottle… RBWG ‘10… Clear straw-colored mead with no legs. The aroma is mainly clover honey with touches of herbs and apple. Full-bodied and oily/syrupy with no carbonation. Sweet, but also a tad acidic. Dries out in the finish. Bottle courtesy of TheCheeseMan!
