MeadMe (1243) - Riverview, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Pours a nice yellow hue. Aroma is rich sweet honey. Flavor is honey, sweet but not overly so. Light vanilla and a touch of oak. One of the best non polish traditional meads I have ever had.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2014
No head (still). Body is medium yellow. Aroma is notes of honey, alcohol (somewhat fusel, bug spray / paint thinner), flowers, caramel, vanilla. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, flat carbonation, lightly astringent, heavily alcoholic. Some nice aromas, but theyíre marred by the higher alcohols. Very sweet in the mouth, but the astringency and acidity are ample at the end to keep it drinkable (for a mead). Overall a pretty straightforward sweet example, a la Redstone, but as with all too many meads, the fusels keep it from being a winner.

Itís hard to find a mead thatís so simplistic and not so overly sweet, and did you notice the alcohol content of 15.3% wow. I tried this with some cheddar cheese and crackers, so here goes. Floral honey notes in the flavor that play well with the cheese and crackers. Itís light but not watery, the finish is a little hot but when you think of the ABV itís really surprisingly light. Clarity was spot on brilliant, big legs and they wrap the glass.

Bottle to snifter (shared by jcwattsrugger). Looks good; a still and transparent honey. Smells solid; sweet, robust honey. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Dangerously drinkable.

magsinva (846) - Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle split with DiarmaidBHK - pours clear gold with some sediment - aroma is overpoweringly floral, which I hate being assaulted by flowers. Hides the alcohol well, but it does have some sweet burn on the finish. Overall, solid, but too floral.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle from Connecticut beverage mart. Pours yellow with no head. Has some floral notes on the note. In addition to the honey has a bit of a floral thing. Hides the alcohol well. Solid but not amazing.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle shared by Michael Fairbrother. Iím including the Heather as a secondary rating as it hasnít been released to date. Wildflower-Pours near water-white, faint yellow note. Still. Nose is really perfumey floral and baby powder, non-descript otherwise. Sweet honey and sugar, distinct ethanol notes as well. On tasting, soft and light vanilla. This is a sweet mead, but balanced. Very clean, warming ethanol. Nice sack mead, if a bit one-dimensional. Heather-much preferred this one. Funky tartness and earthy notes to the nose. Wild honey, light on the florals. On tasting, clean and has an acidic slant that will mellow in time. Noted alcohol. Super interesting with a faint turpentine note that I kind of like. Canít wait to try this another 3 years or so.

MicroGrog (302) - FT: Stale Polotmavż in Queens, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle from Charles St. Liquors. Baby Duvel glass. Clear, rich, straight gold body. Tiny, tiny particles. Uniform legs. Slight bit of foaming. Smells is quite big on floral honey. Chamomile, cream, maple candies, apple acidity, wax. Fuming alcohol. Somewhat sharp apple/malic acid forward taste. White sugar sweetness. Waxy floral/grassy honey. Tart lemon. Savignon Blanc. Bit of cardboard. Slippery body, subtly numbing. Grain & mushroom-like earthiness on the finish. Went in expecting something rich & deep, but still enjoyed the bottle.
