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.

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

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.
