Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 28, 2011
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...

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.

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 (1545) - 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.

Bacterial (1826) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2013
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 (11998) - 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.
