Clear light yellow with no head. Sweet honey and rose aroma and taste with a lightly vegetal finish. Pretty good.

On tap at 2011 Garden Grapes and Hops at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Clear light yellow, with a smell of strong honey sugar, and some outstanding flowery, resinous hop aromas. The flavor brought sweet honey tones to greet a lemony, sweet hop tone. Slight acidity, like candied lemon juice. Quite tasty and unique!

blipp (6070) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2011
Draft. Pours clear light yellow with no head. Light honey sweet aroma with light floral hoppy notes. Strange honey sweet and hoppy flavor. Oddly well balanced. Not bad.

adnielsen (9016) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle in Minneapolis. Very, very light yellow, transparent appearance with a good amount of carbonation. Sweet honey nose with light hops. Sweet, light fruity, light apricot vinous flavor with light hops. Quite tasty and the hops are interesting but don’t add all that much to it.

daknole (9053) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Golden delicious apple aroma. A fight between hops and honey...and the loser is...whoever drinks it.

yespr (30913) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2011
From bottle at Sunset Grill. Pours clear and golden yellow with no head. Aroma is peachy and citrusy hoppy. Sweet honey to sugarish base flavour. Rather fruity and somewhat bitter flavoured into the finish. Nice and fruity.

don’t have much to say about this mead, definitely to be enjoyed for the summer due the light overall flavor and the fizzy carbonation, the taste is sweet and with only a mild amount of hops that is barley noticeable.

nick76 (4213) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2010
The aroma is sweet and a tiny bit plasticky and fruity with the requisite amount of honey. The appearance is pale gold with plenty of bubbles. The taste is like the aroma and quite sweet. The palate is thin but right for a carbonated mead. Overall this is a little disappointing.

drowland (5998) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2010
10/26/10. Clear golden pee colored. Sweet, herbal aroma with hints of honey and citrus and distinct medicinal qualities... reminds me of a weird sweet light beer. Sweet honey flavor that lingers herbally with cat pee and... and basil? This is an odd cat.

JaBier (4854) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh floral hops and honey. Honey sweet flavor with a mint and bitter finish.
