Bottle shared with my wife. Pours a clear straw gold. Spicy lavender, bright honey. Silky mouthfeel, medium bodied, warm with some nice sweetness, subtle lavender. Light alcohol on the finish, warm but gentle. Lingering lavender, never overpowering. Lovely.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle shared with my wife on Christmas Eve. Pours a clear pale gold with no head. This is a still mead. The aroma is just exquisite with clean honey and lavender. Very delicate and just lovely. The flavor is clean honey with some floral notes including lavender. Sweet, but not a heavy sweetness. This mead is clean and bright on the palate. One of the best meads I have had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice golden hue. Aromas of mild earthy honey with hints of perfumey lavender. I really like this one the lavender is there in a nice way. Floral and sweet. Nice rich honey to back the floral essence. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taste from a 750 ml bottle at the meadery. Pours just a slightly richer golden hue than the Dry, Dry Hopped, and Semi Sweet Meads. Aroma of lavender, herbs, honey, lemon, and floral notes. Flavor of honey, lavender and floral notes, coconut, pineapple, and lemon. Nice complexity when lined up with the others, and the aroma and flavor each bring something different. Medium-bodied, with a floral, sweet mouthfeel and lingering floral finish. Very nice.
