On tap at the AZ Strong Beer Fest, February 2011. Pours clear light yellow with no head. The nose is mostly honey with light fruit. The taste is the same – honey dominated with light fruit notes. Lighter thin mouthfeel. Meh.

750 ml. swing top bottle, shared with Gabe. Pours a minimal, short lived head, over a clear straw (SRM 2) effervescent body........nose is heavy floral honey, mild hints of apricot.......taste is heavily honey sweet, with light spice notes, mild subtle hints of apricot, becoming drier on the finish......mouth feel, light body, mild alcohol, high carbonation, slight astringency. The honey is a bit too dominant, and more apparent apricot would be welcome. BJCP 6/3/11/4/6

Bottle pour at Skep & Skein, pours a hazy blonde with a tiny white head. Nose brings out moderate honey sweetness. Flavour is along the same lines, with a light wild quality that dries it out just enough. Very honey-ish. Solid but nothing amazing.

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

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.
