2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A tremendous gift from theisti helping me get my 50th (or 51st) State. Poured a clear yellow color with no head or lacing (since it is a honey wine and all). Aroma a sweet wine with hints of honey and flowers. Flavor has a warming presence to it, with the elderflowers present in the aftertaste. Meads aren’t my thing, but at least I’m done with North Dakota. Thanks, Tim!

Courtesy of Beerhunter: Poured a clear translucent pale golden colour with very soft floral and honey notes on the nose. Taste was off dry, pleasent and very comfortable. Overall, a nice mead, and glad to see North Dakota gone."

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Maybe we had a bad bottle, I’m not sure, here is my impression. Aroma of a cat litter box floral with urine. Flavor is strong, unfortunately it was of liquid body odor with some fruit rubbed in. The palate was the best part of this, medium body, no carbonation. Overall, not very good, I just didn’t like this.
