COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold Medal Winner in the Hydromel category (less than 10% alcohol) at the 2003 International Mead Festival! Made with the addition of Apricot puree for a dryer, tart, more traditional tasting mead.

Can. Pours a clear pale yellow with minimal carbonation and no head. Aroma has a nice sweet apricot note that works well with the honey and just a hint of dryness. Flavor is similarly sweet with honey and apricot up front and some more dry honey in the finish.

Apricots are the dominate aroma. A pino grigio hued pour. The tastes are subdued but honey and apricots greet the palate first followed by a champagne-like crisp finish. Overall, enjoyable but I perfer a fuller body as exhibited in Vikings Blod.

Light golden pour from a 500 mL can. I didn’t know these guys put stuff in cans and when I found some on sale for $6 I had to buy a few. Lots of stuff going on in the nose. Pretty dry, slightly tart, not much honey left in the taste of this one. Slightly metallic finish. This is just ok.

brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
On tap @ Redstone. Clear pour with a light fizz. Aroma of sweet apricot, honey, apple, sugar, and lots of flowers. Slight spice/cinnamon, yeast, and grass. Sweet flavor of honey, sugar, and fruit. Mild apricot tartness, champagne, apple, and yeast flavors as well. A fair amount of spice and flower character, too.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2013 Bottle. Bathroom cleaner, chlorine, white grape juice and pear flavored jolly rancher candy aroma. Concrete mix and antacid tablet and alcohol and solvent. Urinal cake. Carbonated and effervescent and hot and dirty tasting. Chalk, deet, battery acid, solvent, chemicals and fruit schnapps.

Pours a nice off white. Cler and bubbly. Great honey and floral aromas with the same type flavours. A touch sweet, but still nice.

Bottle at Aaron’s. Thanks man! Pour is clear, very pale yellow with no head - good legs. Fruity, peachy, green apples, somewhat sweet, cinnamon, potpourri, sweet honey and flowers. Taste is sweet apples, peachy, tannic, sweet honey, floral, pears, a touch of oak, and white grapes. Light body with soft carbonation. Super easy drinking mead.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 Bottle @ Epic Beer Fest Denver 2013. Pours a light yellow appearance with a bubbly head. Spritzy, lemon, apple, vanilla, slightly sweet honey aroma. Apple, apricot, light peach, a bit herbal, slightly sweet flavor. Not hard to drink.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Snifter on tap at Jackie-Os. Totally clear pale yellow color. Minimal white head, fades to nothing. Medium to bigger body. Very light, if any carbonation. Very light stickiness. Nice sweet taste. Light spicy - honey bite in the finish. Honey, light spice in the flavor. Little kick. Apricot flavor is very subtle, barely noticeable. Overall, an alright mead

Poured on draft. Pours a very pale, fizzy yellow. It actually looks a lot like sprite. The aroma is very sweet apricot. Tastes like a sweet, peachy, sprite. It’s actually pretty good, despite the low ratings. I would have this again.
