Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2007
Clear and very pale yellow coloured. A strong and syrupy example that manages to reach a minimal balance through a weird herbal quality. Tart and flowery and obviously very alcoholic, it never deploys the grace of top meads.

Bottled. RBESG. Very pale, see through hue. Sweet, boozy white wine aroma. ONe-dimensional, not as developed flavour profile as the meads I’ve tried. This is of course very young still. Very much white wine here. Bit of sourness that prevents it from being from sticky.

Bottled at RBESG ’07. Very pale yellow. Boozy warming honey aroma. Sweet, powerful and liqueur-like. Potent. Stays away from becoming sticky.

(RBESG 2007, Glasgow. Bottle) Very pale, no head. Honry and wine aroma, some grapes and sourish notes. Sweet honey flavor, a bit too sugary.

A Mes rate: Bottle during the quick RBESG pre rate session. Perfumed wine aroma. Lemony and sweet aroma. With plenty of alcohol showing. A little too sweet for me.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2007
Bottle from pechams, drank on byres road with jacob and the crew. Aroma is very floural, perfumy, hints at the white grapes and the honey character is subtle, id guss thios a sweet desert wine. Taste has far more honey character, however vry similar to the aroma has a bite off the grapes, which keeps it intresting. Chin Chin!

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2007
[50 ml bottle] Pours perfectly clear, light straw colored. Boozy, white wine aroma- musty and slightly acidic. Sugary grape flavors with some good fruits-- pear, melon and plenty of grape juice. Alcohol warmth is pretty strong and balances the sweetness very well.

harrisoni (13217) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2005
Bottle from Lindisfarne Tourist shop bought for me by my mother as a gift. Golden liquid with sweet notes on the aroma. bit herby on flavour with sweetish finish. Can’t say I got a lot of honey from it, but this was my first proper mead and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Well chilled it was refreshing, crisp and made me feel extremely chipper
