A sample at the Julios meadfest, not too much vanilla on this one. Apple is dominant

A winner, just the right amount of spices to pull this together. They honey adds some nice sweetness to this mead, but outstanding.

Dfonorow (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle. Pour is pale yellow/golden with no head. Aroma and flavor is like an apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Apple sauce, honey, cinnamon sugar, vanilla extract, clove, and brown sugar. Very sweet, but delivers its name.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 The aroma is light apple, honey, touch of spices, vanilla, cinnamon, all well done, not overly one vs the other. The color is a deep straw, crystal clear, still nice legs that hang on to the glass. The flavor is as advertised, sweet honey, apple, spices arenít over done, just delicious.

kathouse (1016) - Nevada, USA - SEP 3, 2014
This is my first mead and it is not far off what I expected. Heavy honey aroma and sweet honey flavor. Apple is fruity without tartness. Cinnamon adds a nice complexity. Very enjoyable.

Well named. Apple pie straight up but too sweet. Not over spiced, but surprisingly sweet.

umich03jm (1994) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle shared at Jeffís. Clear a dull pale yellow color, still appearance. Aroma is a mix of apple pie spices and honey. Taste brings lots of all spice, honey, and light apple tartness. A touch boozy in the finish but still really smooth for 17%. Good stuff.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy apple pie with light cinnamon and honey. It pours a dull transparent gold with no head. The flavor starts with heavy apple pie with a hint of cinnamon. Thereís also light-moderate honey with just a touch of a loan the finish. Itís medium bodied with minimal carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

tectactoe (1935) - Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle: Light, urine-yellow & straw body, still with no head at all, not even any bubbles upon pouring. Aroma of heavy wood, light cinnamon, honey, faint apple, & a moderate booziness flowing through everything. Taste is more honey forward than expected. Alcohol takes a backseat. Heavy, heavy sweet honey with very light notes of cinnamon & a touch of apple fruity tartness in the undertow. A nice mead, but it doesnít remind me as much of apple pie as I would expect.
