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

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.

Courtesy redlight. Pours a clear, light golden color with a small, fizzy, off-white film at the head. Drippy, spotty sheeting shows on the glass. The aroma starts with a very light honey base, followed by floral notes of lavender and heather, with a strangely dry, grassy hoppiness that just seems out of place. It smells earthy, perhaps even a little dirty, which is entirely out of character for a mead. Flavors aren’t really any better, based in watered down, stale honey that clashes with earthy, musty, grassy hops. Medium-light bodied for a mead, with a bit of a fizz that I don’t really care for, the palate perpetuates the letdown. Odd, and not very enjoyable.

on tap 11/18/2009 at papago. pours a slightly yellow shade of clear. no head but it does leave some severe legging. it smells like flowers... not hops so much, just a straight bouquet. after the initial aroma shock, there are notes of perfume, faint resin, floral hops, mild honey and lots of harsh booze. if the smell of industrial floor cleaner could be translated into a flavor this would be it... the taste is quite similar to the aroma including honey, harsh and a slight tartness. i’m not sure where this is supposed to go... it is just odd, sticky and confusing. ick. 5/3/4/2/10/2.4

The aroma is sweet and a tiny bit plasticky and fruity with the requisite amount of honey. The appearance is pale gold with plenty of bubbles. The taste is like the aroma and quite sweet. The palate is thin but right for a carbonated mead. Overall this is a little disappointing.

don’t have much to say about this mead, definitely to be enjoyed for the summer due the light overall flavor and the fizzy carbonation, the taste is sweet and with only a mild amount of hops that is barley noticeable.

On tap at Pap. Golden pour with no head. Honey, alcohol and piney hops in the aroma and flavor. There are elements in this that were never meant to be put together. Kinda not good.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2010
(Draught) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a spare white ring on top. Aroma of florals, honey, earth, and grass. Flavor of honey, grass, florals, and menthol.

Pours flat with no head. Looks like Chardonnay. Smell is huge fusel alcohol, nail polish, honey, and slight grassiness. Flavor is a lot better with oaky(?) honey, grassy hops and booze. Smooth and a little bit of spritzy carbonation. Worth a try buy just ok.
