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.

sampled @ GABF 07. I really liked this actually. Sweet honey aroma with citrus hops. Pours very light blonde. The flavor is mildly sweet the hops balance out the sweetness nicely and give it a good hop flavor.

sampled on tap at the San Diego Strong Ale Festival Nov 2008, an event shared with what seemed liked hundreds of ratebeerians and enjoyed mostly through a straw, since my face was a bloody mess of scabs and stitches. very light in color with a honey sweet nose. taste is very sweet citrus with some hops, but only a little. after a day of imperial stouts, BW and IIPA this was quite refreshing, but not spectactular.

[Bottle] Pours a clear yellow color with no head and fizzy carbonation. Nose is mostly sweet floral honey notes with some hops mixed in. Light fruits, honey, grassy hops and citrus zest in the taste. There is some amount of a sweet/bitter clash in this mead because of the hops. The one upside is that the bitterness cut down on the honey sweetness a bit. Average mouthfeel with light alcoholic notes coming out as it warms. It’s OK.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Bottle at Rattle n Hum shared by Alex of SKI: I was drinking different beers and rated this from memory. Light golden pour. Sweet and herbal aroma, a bit buttery and biscuity- mild chamomile notes peak through. Light spritzy body. Softly sweet flavor. Honeyish, and herbal but quite buttery, especially on the back. Sub par and macro-ish.

drowland (5980) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (9355) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2008
Draught at 6th Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Pours clear light yellow with a spare, fizzy, white head, diminishing with no lacing. Aroma is average malt (hay, straw), average hops (flowers, grass), light yeast (sweat) with notes of honey and green olives. Medium bodied, gritty texture, average carbonation, and an astringent finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

On tap at O’Briens a few days back. Bizarre. Aroma of honey, bread and fruit. Not picking up much hopping here. Flavor was a bit more, but the flavor tasted like a strange sweet tart. Really sweet, really fruit, and really strange. Not sure I’d want to drink this one again, but it was an interesting try.

Boulder Strong Fest. Draught. Very light yellow...I saw someone else drinking it and I thought they were drinking water. Aroma is light resin, lemon, and obviously honey. Flavor is sweet and acidic. Watery and weird
