Pours yellow/gold with a nice white head and minimal carbonation. Smells of honey, nuts, wildflowers and sugar. Tastes mildly bitter and tangy with light honey elements.

Bottle. This is definitely a mead and not a beer even though the label calls it a beer. Overwhelming carbonation. I like it but I’m probably biased as my son has Celiac and this is one of few beers that he can drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, yellow and lightly carbonated. Floral honey aroma. Still on the palate. Nutty mead flavor with some white wine notes. Really a nice light mead.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nice golden honey hued body with a thin patchy film of bubbles and a small ring of bubbles. Nose-herbal tea with honey. Taste-honey, clover, CO2, alcohol, menthol, apple juice, grass, grapefruit, graham crackers. Much better than I had anticipated. With a little more body, this could be a winner. The label states that there are hops in here, but I don’t detect a single hint of hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 Interesting beer in the fact it is brewed with out any malted barley, and is really a mead, not a beer. Pours to a bright, deep golden color, with a tight white head that fades, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is sweet, with aromas of clover honey, and grassy notes. The palate is soft, and slick on the tongue, with lots of honey sweetness, and light syrup. This beer finishes with more honey sweetness, and finishes with some hop bitterenss, but ends cloying with honey sweetness. A tasty and sweet mead, but clearly not a beer. Worth a try, and imagine one to enjoy if you are Jewish, and observe Passover, and want to enjoy a "beer" during Passover.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear golden yellow color, barely a lacing around the side of the glass. A mellow honey flavor, very smooth. It does seem like it’s missing something, but maybe that is just an expectation I had. Mild, smooth finish and fresh lavender finish. Delicate and light. Somewhat sweet, but not overly so. Too many mineral salts, and the finish becomes a little too "chemical" after a few sips. Yet this is an interesting summer brew!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 This is the first product I have had from this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale straw color with a huge sizzling white head that quickly fades. The aroma is sweet and tangy with a hint of citrus. Very champagne like. The flavor is dry and spicy on the front. The middle is lightly sweet. The finish is again dry and spicy. Tastes a lot like dry champagne.

I really want to hate this but I can’t. It’s actually very striking to look at ... crystal clear golden with a frothy head and great (if quickly escaping) carbonation. Looks like a Martinelli filtered apple cider. Nose of floral hops and honey. Taste of floral hops and honey and apple ... if not for the hops I would have thought this was hard cider mixed with mead. OK mouthfeel. Actually drinks OK for a mead, pretty disappointing for a lager.

thanks to lou18 for this, pours a (surprise surprise) honey color, with no head at all (honestly, not sure if mead should have a head). there was little or no aroma...what there was was (surpirse again) honey toned. flavor was very nice, with the hops and honey blending very nicely. the bottle was over carbonated, to the point that it was actually fizzy like a soda when i poured it out. after some of the carbonation came out, it settled down into a very nice, crisp mouthfeel. i enjoyed this as a nice change up from all the thick heavy beers i have been drinking lately.
