On sample at the meadfest, way to much vanilla, really kills it for me unfortunately

Drake’s 10k, hey, 3,500, and it was a mead! Didn’t even realize I had hit a "milestone," albeit a bit shy of Drake’s. Pale clear gold. Aroma of, well, honey. Flavor is honey, a bit fruity, surprisingly refreshing, slight vanilla, but still overall just a light bodied, non-cloying, well made mead. Good stuff.

Bottle @ tasting. Bright golden with no real head. Smells funky, floral, & honey. Nice sweet honey flavor with some wild-floweriness. Sweet but dry.

Poured from an overpriced 375ml bottle. There is tons of coconut, vanilla, sweet sugary honey. This is not complex, if you like coconut and vanilla this is for you. The alcohol is a noticeable facet throughout this beverage.

Looks like a light Apple juice. Toffee caramel smell. Same flavour with a delicious gooey character to it. So tasty.

Bottle. Clear gold pour, no head. Lots of honey sweetness, floral, vanilla flavoring, and a bit of spice. The body feels light, and the alcohol is well hidden. Ok.
