The mead pours a pale, golden color with slippery legs of alcohol on the sides of the glass. On the nose, the mead smells of floral lavender, mint, slight butter, slight sweet glazed donut, and fabric sheets. As I swirl, I get a sense of orange blossom honey and fabric sheet/febreeze scents, but not in a bad way. On the tongue, the mead tastes sweet with a nice herbal bitter finish that blends with the sweetness. A slight acidity also works in towards the finish to add a slight pop to the mouth. Flavors feature lots of sweet lavender with a refreshing finish of spearmint. Febreeze fabric softener definitely makes an appearance in flavor, as well as rich honey. In the mouth the mead feels medium bodied, with a slightly light turn. The mead is syrupy smooth, yet the lavender/herbal-bite adds a crisp touch that makes the mead quite drinkable. Overall, the mead is smooth, refreshing, and delicious. It is still quite sweet, and should be considered as a refreshing digestif. A delightfully refreshing mead.

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.

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.

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.

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.
