Golden color. The aroma is very floral, honey, soap. Smooth, semi-dry mouthfeel, the flavor is quite woody, and less flawed than the aroma, lightly fruity, with light final bitterness.
Solid. Not bad, and balanced; should appeal to whom looks for drier meads.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, thanks andregoncalves! Deep golden color. Sweet perfumed and flowery honey aroma with toffee and pineapple. Much dryer taste with flowery honey, sherry, oak, pine, pine apple and tequila. Finish is again more honeyish. There is a big controversy between sweet aroma and dry taste. Alcohol is a bit stingy but otherwise this is nice artisanal mead.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, thanks andregoncalves! Clear golden. Distinct floral grainy nose. Mid dry with medium body. Peppery and spicy with lots of clover and vinous undertones. Pear and honey, intensely warming finish. Nicely aromatic and well drinkable despite the evident alcohol.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl bottle. Golden color, almost clear appearance. Aroma is pure honeyish and also light alcohol. Sweetness is medium. I expected less sweetness since this is half-dry, and also more aromas.
