A nice mead, hoppy, light yellow colour. Citrus and nice drinkability. Worth it for mead fans.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Bottle… Pours pale yellow with effervescence and an immediately dissipating, fizzy, white head. The aroma is an odd blend of honey, vanilla and herbs that hint at wood stain or clear wood finish. Medium-bodied with a syrupy/oily mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Sweet, for the most part, but also very mildly acidic. Lengthy, crisp, sweet (but not overly so) finish. An odd bird, this one, but I have no real gripes. Very braggot-like, but better than most examples of a very strange style. Thanks go out to TheCheeseMan and redlight for the glassful!

adnielsen (10360) - 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.

arminjewell (9207) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Pour out of bottle is clear yellow-orange, aroma brings notes of floral and slight grapefruit hops, touch of sweet honey and vanilla as well. Taste is a mix of honey, floral and citrus hops, finishing fairly dry but the honey sweetens a bit. Nice stuff actually.

Camons (9172) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2012
Tap @ Old Chicago, Denver. Pours waterlike, just a slight yellow tone, no head. Aroma of honey, flowers, peach, garden. Taste is garden flowers, honey, peach, apricot, light citrus, light acidic notes. Very light bodied for a mead, light carbonation. Light and easy drinking mead, not bad. 030312

JoeMcPhee (9169) - 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.

"Cool and unique - never had a dry hopped mead before. Abv hidden, hippiness a really nice twist, especially in the nose. Light honey and a citrusy bitterness throughout. "
