3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cL clear bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small, bubbly and shorlived head. Aroma is distinct herbal elderflowery, light spiced and honey sweet and herbal underneath. Sweet honey flavoured with a candy like edlerflower note swept through. Lingering honey and herbal note into the finish. Slowly descending from sweet to dry herbal into the far finish. Light warming alcohol presence.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 35cl. A clear one with an oily pour. Headless and still. It’s quite herbal and spiced on the nose, the elderflower more or less overpowers everything else, even the honey which is normally not easy too hide. It’s full-bodied, lightly warming and oily on the palate, with lots of elderflower in the flavor. Honey sweetness too of course, and some faint citrus peel hints. More on the orange side than the lemon side. Some coffee bean hints too. Long finish. In a strange way the coffee and orange hints makes me think more of Christmas than of spring which I normally connects with elderflower. Anyway, it’s a really wonderful mead. Pity I only have a small bottle. 150712

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours clear lightly pale golden with no head. Aroma is pleasantly sweet without being cloying. The heavy dose of elderflowers and heather notes balance the sweetness well. Still vinious, though. Fat and oily mouthfeel with no carbonation. Flavour is sweet, caramel, honey, but again balanced well by viniousness and this fresh elderflower note. Actually quite nice.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Clear deep golden with no head. Distinct aroma of elderflower almost overpowering the honey. Rich but not fat honey accents yet spicy from the elderflower. Warming alcohol in the finish combined with a vague tartness. 110110

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at Papsø’s
Blond color. The elderflower aroma is delicate and pleasant, not too flowery, sweet, with light honey. Medium-sweet flavor, the honey is difficult to perceive, but there is still a delicate elderflower presence. Balanced and interesting variant.

Fløska. Deep golden colour. Sweet honey aroma with lots of elderflowers, herbs. Good mouthfeel. Sweet pleasant flavour of honey withlots of elderflowers, bitter-sweet. Too herby, too much elderflowers for my liking.
