Bottle. Hazy pinkish orange pour, no head. Very sweet - plums and honey. Fiancť says she picks up tequila like alcohol elements in here. Kind of reminds me of schnapps or Mad Dog 20/20. Interesting.

I know Iím not a message guy, but this was over the top sweet. Aroma had nearly pure alcohol in it as flavor was a sugary mess. Not for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a syrupy pinkish yellow color with no head. Aroma was sweet honey, and plums mainly. Flavor was plums and honey as well a bit sweet and cloying, but hey, its mead.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Bottle] Amber with nice legs. Aroma is unusual--bubblegum (Big Red with muted cinnamon?) and herbal notes. Continuing with the gum theme, the taste is big on juicy fruit (uncanny, really), along with a little red apple, and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, average finish length. I had this mead before, and it wasnít bad. This time I really struggled to like it though, especially after I noticed the gum similarities.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dusty notes from Pistol Peteís spring fling thing.
I think I sampled this in my Yardís tasting mug, notes arenít exactly lengthy.
-Smells of tingly apple cider, prunes, & some floral notes. Perfumey. Honey barely lingers in the background & isnít much of a player overall.
I didnít write much on appearance except this it was much lighter then expected.
Taste is green apple, apricots, mixed berries, & grape skin tannins. Extra cup of sugar. Syrupy. A bit of plastic sensed both ways. Warming for a low abv mead.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Honey and banana aroma, maybe some plum notes. Clear rose colored. Plum and hibiscus flavor. Honey is more in the background than in any other mead Iíve had. Banana in the finish. Silky texture, light body. Really easy to drink and very delicious. I got this for the North Dakota tick, but now I want to try all of this wineryís other stuff.

Bottled at World of Beer. Poured clear peachy-golden with a light white ring for head. The aroma was sweet with honey and plum sugars first and foremost.. more honey backed it up. The flavor was along those same lines.. began and ended with semi-sweet honey and toasted plums.. dried out toward the finish, leaving a trail of sweet and lightly-spiced plum. Medium-bodied on the palate with a solid feel and flow.. began sweet and thankfully dried out where it needed to on the back. Nice one.

bottle pours light orange with no head, still. Aroma is honey and alcohol, lots of sour plum notes. Flavor is very sweet, lots of floral honey notes with a lightly sour/bitter plum in the finish. Tastes alot better than it smells.
