Pours cloudy pale amber. Aroma and flavor are mint mint mint, a bit astringent aftertaste and more to the dry side. Thin body.

Smell is of toothpaste, flavor of mouthwash, consistency of mouthwash. Not great.

BOLTZ7555 (2701) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Light golden straw color with a faint greenish hue. Refreshing light mint aroma. Herbal, cool, spicy. Green, leafy, fresh. Nice sweet honey addition and no noticeable alcohol. Pretty good.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2013
6oz clear glass bottle pours gold with a minute long head of loose foam. The aroma offers up moderate notes of mint followed by mild vague sweetness and then some honey along with a chemical booziness at the end of the draw. The taste is straight up mint chewing gum enhanced by the effervescent carbonation. Midway for a moment and into the finish brief sweet smooth mead honey notes interject slightly before the mint wells up again into the finish. This is too carbonated for me and makes it a bit too minty and thin in body.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle split with Ibrew2or3, thanks Dave. Batch 021208. Dorée avec des bulles blanches à la surface laissant un bouquet menthol très prenant. Arôme est ici dans le style spearmint avec un menthol dominant suivi d’un mielleux et citronné assez en retrait. Palais est très voire trop effervescent donnant cet impression de ’mouthwash’ et de dentifrice. Effervescence est bcp trop haute au point de devoir secouer la bouteille pour qu’elle se dissipe. Sans cette dernière, la menthe est plus en rapport avec le profil de cet hydromel. A l’inverse, tout le bon côté du miel se retrouve obstrué. Pas grand chose à redire, si ce n’est menthe, menthe et encore de la menthe.

PhillyCraft (2845) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle shared with Keith, Scott, Bill, and Frank. Pours a green tinted light clearish golden color with thin head and lacing, pretty much nothing. Aromas are earthy spearmint gardens, wrigleys gum stick, herbals, and light honey. The honey mostly comes through in the taste, along with fresh mint, earthy black teas. So refreshing, thick mouth but smooth as silk. Perfect thing to drink before a ride home.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle… Berliner Bash on the Bay 2012This mead rocks!… Clear off-straw colored mead with a hint of green. The aroma is quite minty – a spearmint and peppermint blend. Nice, sweet, minty flavor with a touch of dryness to balance it out a smidge. Finishes minty, medium sweet, and then dry. Bottle shared by burg326!

jtclockwork (7107) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle thanks to FlandersNed. Pours gold. Nose is straight up mint, spearmint and mouthwash with some honey notes. Taste is mint leaves, honey and tea leaves. The taste is much better and more balanced and more delicate than the nose. Medium body.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Clear nip bottle thanks to burg326. Clear golden pour with decent legs. Double mint gum aroma straight up. Taste is lighter, mildly viscous in the palate. Some mint gum and mild alcohol heat. Interesting...too much spearmint.

6 ounce bottle shared at Berliner Bash, poured a light yellow color with some light green tint in it. Aromas of spearmint, booze, and some honey. Flavors are the same, overall very nice, and not as dry as I was expecting, the honey made it rather sweet, and cut some of the boziness. Thanks again ICEatALAMO for sending it to me.
