Clear yellow color with no head as ususal. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a mellow nice sweetness. Honey, flowery and some spices in the flavor. Well masked alcohol.

visionthing (4792) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2016
Small bottle from a sample pack bought in a supermarket in Druskininkai, Lithuania. Pours clear golden without any head. Stronger honey aroma than the Bočiu notes of dried dark fruits and spices here too, but also som more floral notes are present. Sweet, warming and rather pleasant with floral, fruity honey flavours and some bitterness. Alcohol is noticable, but fairly well integrated. Pleasant mead.

750ml bottle (Leiciai, Vilnius)
Lovely honey, a touch of apple, in the aroma. Light palate. Honey all over the taste too. However, it’s not too sticky. Also not saying 15% at all. A lovely mead - feels more like a dvojniak than a poltorak, even though it’s very honey-ey and 15%.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Vova’s place. Thanks Vova. Gold. Aroma of honey and some cookies and floral notes. Very sweet flavor with honey, a bit of fruitiness, flowers and a faint sourish note.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Smells more dusty and mushroom-y than the other two. Still has hair spray and schnapps herbal notes. Thin body with a watery texture. Fruity peach and earthy apricot accents on a basic honey foundation. Crisp and acidic and cider-like and simple.

KyotoLefty (9305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2013
Little bottle from the Vilnius airport. Tangy citrus honey nose, lemon and orange. Sweet flavor of orange honey, dry earthy finish. Pale yellow color. Dry, light, grassy. Nice.

Ernest (7320) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle. No head. Body is clear medium to dark yellow. Aroma is notes of honey and alcohol. Flavor is harshly sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Full body, syrupy texture, flat carbonation, heavily alcoholic. The worst of the three...it has the simplest aroma and is also the most syrupy-sweet and boozy. Probably the only notable thing about the Midus products is that they aren’t fusel...it’s all too common for meads to stink of gasoline or insecticide, but these smell like clean, straight vodka with honey added.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle, at RBNAG-11. A clear, flat and light golden colored mead with aromas of heather, some roses, but as expected, most of all honey. Quite tasteful, with honey sweetness, as well as heather and roses. Full-bodied and warming, with a lasting honey and alcohol finish. Almost like a dessert wine this one. Nice. 111015
