This changed my mind about mead. Vanilla and spices on the nose, wonderful body. Not cloyingly sweet at all. Very smooth mouthfeel and drinks way too easy for the ABV. I’m hooked!

Pours a clean golden maybe tinted green slightly color. Very still. A green apple big honey aroma. More green apple flavors here with a big boost of honey that really smooths the alcohol feel. A touch of cinnamon that gives a nice tingle. Good stuff.

Bottle sampled at the 2015 Cajun Cafe Cider and Mead Festival. Pours a mostly clear yellow and still. Nose is some apple, spice, vanilla, and cinnamon with mild honey notes behind. Flavor hits with light honey and vanilla with noticeable cinnamon and pie spices. Light in body and an interesting mead overall.

Synthetic corked bottle from Beer Junction, Seattle
Measured Final Gravity: 1036
Sweet and elegant; smooth; this mead is true to its name, an apple pie with cinnamon, but there is no exaggeration in the usage of the spice; balanced; very pleasant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375mL bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a few bubbles head. Nose smells like a fresh sweet apple pie, with cinnamon, vanilla, and medium honey sweetness. Flavour brings out a lot more cinnamon upfront than on the nose, with secondary notes of vanilla and medium sweet apples. Just like an alcoholized, decadent apple pie. Complex and balanced. Excellent.
