Pale yellow. Insanely sweet aroma. tons of vanilla. Taste is the same. this is insanely vanilla forward. just incredible vanilla for days. boil it down and put it on some ice cream

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.

brought this the the brewer’s apprentice in freehold NJ while there was a mead tasting there. didn’t realize it was a formal tasting. people were waiting in line while my friends and I had our own mead tasting. Pours a golden color. smell is a bright honey with a mild citrus and a noticeable vanilla spice. taste is sweet honey vanilla with a citrus floral honey. overall sweet. mouthfeel is full and rich. would like more

375 ml clear glass bottle. Pours a clear brilliant gold with no head. This is a still mead. Pleasant aroma of honey, floral perfume, yeast, and vanilla. The flavor is more complicated. The honey has a strong floral component with a bit of earthiness that seems a bit sharp and just doesn’t mesh well with the vanilla. As the honey flavor subsides, the aftertaste is vanilla and caramel and is quite nice. I chilled the bottle initially, but I found I like this mead much better at room temperature; I enjoyed the last half of my glass more than the first half. This rating is at room temperature, not chilled.
