Bottle, synthetic cork, from Elizabeth Station, Bellingham, 13% ABV
Measured Final Gravity: 1015

Blond color with a slight golden hue. Nice aroma, warm, comforting, with bread and cookies, light alcohol, birch sap, flowers. Stronger body and mouthfeel than the Gravity suggests, soft, slightly sweet; harmonious flavor, flowery, sappy, a bit fruity; you wonít clearly notice the agave or the honey; it has some light astringency in the final, a pleasant touch.
Harmonious mead, pure, well made.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Pale, lots of honey aroma and a dash of mushroomy character. Touch of spice up front, and sweet honey, mellow melon notes, and a dash of balsa wood. Good mead. Thereís another level but this is solid. Acidity in the finishes, which is like a mandatory thing.

mcberko (6696) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
750mL bottle, courtesy of fiulijn (thanks a lot, Alex), pours a clear blonde with no head. Nose brings out sugary sweet agave nectar and wildflower honey. Flavour is exactly the same, bringing out the wildflower honey upfront and maybe some of the agave, but I canít really tell that apart. Very enjoyable and well-made mead.

Bottle as Trickster Treat. I need the label for this if anyone has one. Pours gold. No head. Nose and taste of agave, wildflower, honey, vanilla and light spice. Sweet. Medium body.

MeadMe (1319) - Riverview, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2011
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.

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 28, 2009
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.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2008
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.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2008
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!

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2007
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.
