3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy light yellow mead. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of honey. The flavor is sweet spicy combined with notes of honey as well as lighter notes of citrus and a slight acidity.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Straw colour is, well, a little dull and not terribly enticing. Aroma is very honeyish, lightly spicy (cinnamon) and woody. Sweet flavour with brash honey character kicks things off. Lots of spicy depth. Finishes with an alcoholic kick, vinous acidity, and bursting juicy fruitiness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear, light yellow mead. Lots going on in the aroma... vanilla, fresh wildflowers, mandarin orange peel, eucalyptus and honey. Sweet, woodsy flavor with notes of chardonnay and tart lemon. Medium-bodied and oily with feather-soft carbonation. Leaves the mouth semi-dry.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My first ever mead. I thought it was ok, but give me beer any day please! Yellow pour with a very strong aroma of honey(shocker!) and wildflowers. Flavor isnt as sweet or rich as I would have expected. Honey flavor is there, some slight tartness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled on July 12, 2006. My first mead that I have rated, hence I probably don’t know what I am talking about. Aroma has honey, clove and cinnamon in it, with a little bit of woodiness and maybe a hint of white wine. As far as appearance goes, I really have no idea how to seperate a good mead from a bad one. So a 3? Flavor stays in the mouth for a while and ends on a sourish note. Maybe a little bit of orange rind in the taste. Some of my friends who had it with me couldn’t stand it, some liked it (but then again none of them have had mead before, let alone rate it). Goes down like wine; watery with no carbonation and a moderate alcohol presence on the finish. Not bad for the cheapest traditional mead at the store.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Pours chill hazy morning urine colored, with no apparent head. Aroma is of honey, chardonnay, apple, some plastic. Tastes soemwhat medicinal at first, with the honey, pear, Granny Smith apple, and berry notes coming in later. Not bad, but not worth the price I paid.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Backroom sample from the bottle at Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber color. Aroma is sweet honey with a faint but of spice. Taste is overly sweet and closer to apple cider than mead. Very light notes of honey, spice and a fair bit of alcohol. Medium bodied.
