COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mix of pure Maple Syrup and Wildflower Honey. Smooth and rich without being overly sweet. Notes of flowers, apples and caramel play upon the palette. While the maple presents itself it provides a clean finish. Some prefer this mead chilled or on ice.

Good honey expression in the aroma, with a slight hint of maple notes, a little earthy but pleasing, great clarity, darker shade of straw, good legs on the glass. The flavor is a good blend of honey and maple. Well done.

The maple notes are a bit earthy in aroma and flavor, a bit sweet to my liking, All in all a decent craft mead.

Clear amber pour. Apple and honey in the nose with maybe just a hint of maple. I would like to taste more of the honey and maple in this, but its like my mouth is full of black tea leaves and a very astringent finish.

Honey, apple, vanilla, maple, and some alcohol in the aroma. Caramel, vanilla, and maple in the flavor. Dry finish with some alcohol. Not as sweet as some meads. Tasty and drinkable.

Bottle from the wine cabinet - pours clear amber, still. Aroma is bourbon, brown sugar, maple, and booze. Gotta say, that straight from the fridge it was like mouth wash. I let it sit out for an hour, so the aroma could bloom. Much, much better when it just has a bit of a chill. Overall, solid, if safe offering. They could have pushed it more.

pantanap (3353) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2012
500ml bottle from a trade from awhile back. also sampled at the source during the month of september... pours a mostly clear transparent golden cidery hue. fairly clean with thin legs not leaving much of a trace even after gentle swirling... smooth clean apple and honey notes upfront. maple adds some sweetness but doesn’t offer up too much distinction. honey still remains the focus which is nice since it’s very clean and to the point... flavors offer up a similar profile with clean honey at first, semisweet with some added maple sweetness but overall it finishes more on a semi-dry note with warmth from the abv in addition to some peppery spice that extends beyond the backend. lighter bodied than most meads and doesn’t bog itself down byt tryng to be too big. this could substitue for a white wine as it doesn’t come across as being too sweet although their is a bit of a booze factor that detracts from the overall experience.

Bottle at James’ tasting. Pours gold with no head. Maple and honey sweet aroma, with lighter spicy notes. The flavor has honey and maple sweetness, a hint of vanilla, and a little bit of booze.
