a sample at the mead tasting at Julios, wow this one is odd. Very very sweet and the vanilla is just way to overpowering. Sorry guys,

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle!
Pours a pale golden color, still... lookin like an olí mead should.
The aroma is spicy & waxy... sort of weird but not unplesant. Itís pretty honey forward and has some light alcohol character to it.
The flavor is seriously WAX LIPS! Aside from that itís got some mild spice, a bunch of honey, a bunch of alcohol flavor and a little bit of vanilla. Itís got about a medium level of sweetness and an enormous level of wax lips.
I like Moonlight, but this is just not a mead I can get that into.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster at the source. Pours platinum gold, still. Sharp ginger aroma, honey. Flavor follows nose. Ginger here is a little too raw and sharp for my tastes. Vanilla takes a back seat and lends a bit of earthiness.

Let me first give a shutout to Moonlight. My wife purchased me a mishandled bottle of this mead while on business in Boston. I contacted Micahel to give him a heads up. He says he will check into the store selling it and asked for my address. Lets just say wow, he ever make things right. Never seen such great customer service.
As for the mead it pours a pale yellow. Aromas of vanilla and candied ginger. Flavor is very nice. Sweet up front with real vanilla bean flavor. Nice honey flavor packs a good deal of sweetness. The zesty earthy ginger momentarily appears in the finish. A real nice mead. I wish more people would utilize ginger in their meads. Itís a perfect match. The vanilla provides a perfect accompaniment in this mead.
