adnielsen (9090) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2010
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Very clear, transparent pale straw pour. The nose is loaded with honeyish sweetness. The hop aroma is barely there - just a simple sweet clover honey mead with a little bit of light mintiness. Simple, but pretty good.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. This Mead is a clear pale yellow-orange color and decent legs. Aroma of citrus and honey. Medium body with flavors of fruit, sweet honey and subtle hops. The finish is fruity and sweet. Slightly above average overall.

3fourths (8032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Bottle. Clear pear yellow colored body, effervescent and bubbly, small white layer of carbonation on top. Overly sweet nose of pears, a little acetone, mostly just a general honey smell... flavor is no different. Has a slight bitterness, the dry-hopping imparts a minor flavor and aroma of dried grass... nothing remarkable about this mead at all. Couldn’t drink much of it.

Clear pear color, small white head. Sweet, hoppy, citrus scent. Sweet, sugary, wood taste. Spritzy mouthfeel, tart finish.

deyholla (6639) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 21, 2014
On tap at the 2014 OCBF. Pours a clear pale gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma has lots of honey that is slightly dry, a bit of sweetness and a touch of backing pine. Flavor has a combination of sweet and dry honey with a hint pine backing.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Guest tap at Perennial, served in a wine glass. Pours the color of white wine - clear, with no head. Notes of honey, florals, tea, lemon, and wet paint. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a vinous mouthfeel. Not much to say about this one. Very basic mead.
