UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 Crushed with Jakebra at BSAF. Honey and nectar on the nose and in the flavor. Not much in the way of hops, however. Incredibly sweet still. Re-rate: Nice nose with lots of sweetness. Very sweet flavor but not overly. Just pleasant. Pretty awesome.

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.

Tap at the bottle shop. Pale yellow pour, nose is honey, sweet, hops, and florals. Smooth on the palate, honey, light hops, and a sweet finish.

Obvious loads of floral honey, and a touch of apples with. Pleasant citrus hit from the hops. No bitterness, but you get a nice shot of citrus from the hops. Quite pleasant, but you cant drink very much at once.

Draught at Redstone in Boulder, on October 8, 2012
Clear pear color, small white head. Sweet, hoppy, citrus scent. Sweet, sugary, wood taste. Spritzy mouthfeel, tart finish.

iggynelix (102) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Light pale in appearance and thin. Feels like a white wine spritzer with the sharpness of a pinot grigio with only over tones of honey. Very distinct. A nice summer session with some sharp cheeses

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

Surprised at the low scores. I found this really nice and refreshing. The dry hopping gave it a really nice finish and solid flavor.
