Sampled at the Manitou Wine Festival. The nose is brilliant clover honey, with good hop character of orange peels and pine. Very sweet, with a fairly significant hop bitterness that gives it a good dry finish. This is a surprisingly balanced, aromatic, and delicious mead.

Cannery Row Beer Club tastes Meads tonight. This one was $11 per bottle. We have mixed feelings about the carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasting at Savannah Bee at their Broughton St. location in Savannah. The most expensive mead of the group I tasted and the one I liked the least. Pours a clear yellow gold with a fizzy white head. The aroma is sweet honey, citrusy hops, and a bit of apple. The flavor is similar. For me the hops and honey never really mesh together. On the lighter side of medium bodied.

Tap. Pale golden with minimal head. Medium honey sweetness. Hops don’t mesh particularly well with the honey. Smells better than it tastes.

Pours a pale straw color. Aroma of light fruit. Taste of light fruit and not much else. Light body, a bit watery. Reminded me of a wine spritzer. Expected a whole lot more.
