2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This bottled Mead from a beer bar poured a head of bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent weak yellow colored body and no lacing. The mild aroma was fruity. The off-tasting mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The strange flavor contained notes of honey and fruity. Not one that I would likely drink again.

Sampled at the Manitou Wine Festival. Nice clover and wildflower honey, with a subtle touch of spruce, which tones down the sweetness a bit. This is a tasty, well made mead, but the juniper doesn’t really add much...

750ml bottle 5/28/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-38° in snifter-Pours golden with no head. Aroma of wine, alcohol, and honey. Taste of the same with a bit more alcohol. This light bodied mead is not bad but just comes across hot.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold in color with soft sweet honey aromas that softly layer on hints of wood and gin. Dry tannic honey and citric hay-like flavors throughout. Airy body, dry, semi-sweet finish. Nice experiment here that seems to work well

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at Elizabeth Station, pours a clear blonde. Nose is syrupy with lots of honey and alcohol. Flavour is syrupy and cloying, with a medicinal taste and lots of alcohol. Not the most refined mead by any means. Too syrupy, cloying and medical. Not so good.

Bottle @ Redstone. Clear yellow pour. Really herbal aroma. Lots of juniper notes, a touch of tartness, and some pepper. Just a mild honey aroma and sweetness. Fairly grassy. Flavor is herbs and pepper. Light tartness, juniper, and a mild honey flavor and sweetness. Meh.
