Decent fruity aroma, apples and tart apricot, but the rest falls a little short. Nothing bad, but not worth the premium mead costs...

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Very clear. Almost like water. No head. No aroma so to speak. Tastes like pear juice with about 2% alcohol. If its h8... wow, I can believe that. Its very enjoyable.

deyholla (7740) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2014
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.

Beerenberger (1563) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2014
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.
