3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from DanGeo - first mead opened from the package. Pours a clear pale gold with no head. Large ginger and lavender presence (curious if the honeybees are located near a lavender patch) that create a sweet and complex aroma with a warming booziness. Doesnít follow through for me on the taste with a sweet honey and astringent ginger combination a soapy lavender taste at the end.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Dangerous Bottleshare ft. Lukasmh and Daawi thanks to Lukasmh and Bursprak. Pours clear yellow. Aroma has lots of windshield cleaner-like notes, ginger, honey, chemical notes. Taste has ginger, honey, floral, spice but the same chemical notes. Seems like nothings wrong with it but not on par with ANY of the Schramms meads Iíve had at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares Feat Lukas&Aaron! Thanks to Bursprak and LukasMH for this one. Pours a clear yellow with fairly thin lacings. Aroma has windscreen wash, ginger, window cleaning agent, pepper, slight honey, lots of spice, chemicals. Taste is sweet honey, spice, ginger, pepper, boozy.. Light body but a nice alcohol heat to finish. Too much chemicals overall i think.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ La Palma Sour Fest 2015. Thanks for the bottle, Keith. Clear pale straw colored. A pretty nice nice, spicy ginger aroma to this. Quite fresh and vibrant. The honey quality is sort of on the light side and the sweetness is a bit restrained. Quite floral, too. I dig it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a still and transparent light gold. Smells of honey and real ginger. Tastes like it smells, but more robust and decadent, with a medium-full to full-bodied mouthfeel thatís smooth for the abv. Some spice from the ginger on the tongue as well. Another winner from Schrammís.
