COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Wildflower Session Mead captures the essence of the Willamette Valley and the complexity of honey. Aromas and flavors of ripe fruit and fresh honeycomb ignite the senses in every sip. Indulge in one of the greatest gifts our fertile valley has to offer.

Pours a clear still yellow from the bottle. Aroma of slight flower over honey sweetness. Taste is more toward the day side, but not over the top. Not bad.

A good mead balances sweetness, alcohol burn, and drinkability. This mead completely axed the first two. Very pale yellow, a faint honey aroma, and very little else stood out when I poured it into a pint glass. There is a slight floral honey taste upfront, but it almost immediately disappears. It tastes like someone watered it down with seltzer. You could almost mistake it for flavored water. Not a good mead or even a good beverage.

Bottle - Sweet honey and floral notes. Pale gold. Sweet, honey light, flowery and watery. Very light and easy drinking.

deyholla (9762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Sampled from the bottle at ABR 2015. Pours a clear pale yellow with a slight green hue and a hint of a bubbly head. Flavor has lots of honey with a bit of dryness and a touch of plastic. Flavor has sweet honey and a dry finish that comes off a bit of a plastic.

Nuffield (3994) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Clear water appearance. Flavors like vanilla, chocolate, sweet vermouth, fruitiness. Interesting, curious, but meh. (at 2015 Summer Beer Dabbler, St. Paul, MN)

MeadMe (1591) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Pours clear. Aroma is honey comb, mildly earthy. Flavor very mild. Light honey, slightly floral with a touch of earth. Very light and fizzy. Could be an okay base. It needs an addition to add a layer of flavor

tchaos (427) - New York, USA - MAY 1, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a lightly carbed, clear straw. Aroma of very faint honey. Taste follows with mild honey notes. A very light session mead. Could be a decent base for other flavors.

tightslice (789) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is white wine, effervescent yeasts, mild honey. Taste is watered down white wine, seltzer. Very disappointing.

BuckeyeBoy (5267) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 18, 2014
500ml bottle thanks to rich. Pours out almost crystal clear. Nose is a touch of sweetness honey touch and some white grape. Taste is over carbonated big time a tuch of honey and wine notes. Not good at all. Douglas you know what good mead tast like apis jadwiga. You should know better that to give this a 3.0 plus.
