Sampled at Uber Seattle.
Pours a nice light hue, still with some legs. Aromas of nice floral honey, light spices and something I canít quite pick out. The agave flavor really comes through. It cuts through the honey to provide great balance making this one not too sweet. The honey is still there in a subdued form. A nice mead, I actually purchased a different variety from these guys.

This is amazing. Itís like mead got raped by some good tequilla. I canít believe this stuff. Itís just so tasty. Very spicy and the agave is more than present, it is the dominating note in this. Very sweet as are most meads and just damned pleasant to drink. The only thing holding it back from perfection is the mild stomache ache that can accompany large quantities of it.

Tasted at the San Diego International Beer Festival. Another winner in my book. Golden color with a less sweet aroma and taste than their other meads. Alcohol (at 13+% according to the label) and dry spice flavors dominate. Yum.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear gold with no head or carbonation. Aroma smells a lot like white wine - flowery, pepper, citric, and grapes. Flavor a bit tart apple and grape. Nice, more tart mead.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color wit decent legs. Aroma has some nice wildflower honey, apple, and agave-desert scents. Flavor has a nice OB/wildflower honey tang with some floral and light fruit notes. Nice mouthfeel that surprises. Not fantastic, but pretty good for a semi-dry mead. Went very well with chicken!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours out a clear, still burnished gold body. Nice legs!
Smell: Clear-cut agave aspect with distinct cidery notes and only a very subtle honey scent.
Taste: Smooth agave flavor along the lines of a finer reposado. Very minimal sweetness. Any honey flavor remains subtle. Again, there are those notes of apple cider. Sharp, though manageable alcohol bite. More mellow, smoked spice agave flavor on the exceptionally dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Still, medium body.
Drinkability: Certainly different, but Iíve come to the reality that I prefer sweet meads. Still, it would be fun to try and work into a margarita.

Pours a clear dark golden bronze with decent legs. Aroma of complex sweet honey and some floral notes. Body starts a little thin, and has a good honey sweetness, drying towad a slightly more bitter agave finish. A fairly interesting and drinkable mead.

This is fruitier than most meads Iíve had. Itís really quite a fine mead, except for the fact that itís way too sweet for semi-dry. I would say sweet, but I think of Sweet Melissa and Apis Jadwiga when I think sweet and this is not that rich. There is that hint of agave (at least Iím assuming itís agave because itís the fruitiness from pulque I had once. Itís far from the snot-like consistency of pulque, though, and thatís a good thing.

My first mead, pours like the color of apple juice. Nose of honey and wine. Flavor is like wine made from honey! Clean, dry, and an altogether nice experience. Expensive, though, so I will only have fromn time to time. Unfortunately, my wife, (whom I bought it for) didnít like it.
