Beerenberger (1449) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Floral aromas dominate the nose. The pour is almost a water-like clear slightly greenish-yellow hue. The taste is more robust than the aroma or the color would suggest. Florals, honey. Medium-light body. Overall, a very enjoyable sweet mead. Would buy again.

fiulijn (14740) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle at the meadery
Pale blond color. Delicate aroma, with tiny notes of wood, reminiscent of an elegant and slightly aged white wine, light apples, with the lightest scent of bread and hard cheese. Quite sweet, but still with moderation; there is a light impression of honey, but its mostly an accomplished mead, with light tones of white wine, light final breadish impression, hidden acidity that contributes to the balance, and some alcohol warmth.
Not overly complex, but flawless and very elegant; it can perfectly serve as drink before the meal or with the meal.

jredmond (5352) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle shared with Linh at the Pike Brewery. Pours a water body with no head, no lacing with just barely a tint of gold. Aroma is wood, honey, wine, grape and dust. Mouthfeel is not overly dry with notes of subtle honey, oak and sweet apples. Great mead.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 10, 2010
750ml bottle. Clear very pale yellow almost white and still. Aroma of white grape juice, floral honey, wood and alcohol. Flavor is sweet honey and apple juice with a very smooth sweet finish. Syrupy mouth feel from the residual sugar but that is how a sweet mead should be. This is a very nice sweet mead, no off or alcohol flavors, very enjoyable. Good price for a 750ml bottle of mead as well, on sale for $14.99.

beerbill (3422) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2008
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with no head. This is a still mead. Pleasant aroma of honey. When I saw this in the store, my one concern was that being a sweet mead, it would be too cloying or syrupy. This mead is in fact the polar opposite. The honey flavor is subtle and quite lovely actually. While the flavor is sweet, it is much less sweet than I expected or have experienced in other meads. Light, almost delicate on the palate. Very nice and very enjoyable.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Poured a clear yellow with, of course, no head. Aroma is an interesting mix of honey and just a touch of wild berries, adding a bit of tartness to the smell. Flavor is sweet, as expected, but not overly so, with honey predominating but backed up by some strawberry and raspberry flavors. Nothing shocking or unexpected here, but smooth, drinkable, and pretty tasty.

Ernest (6231) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Bottle. No head (still). Body is clear very light yellow (not too far from colorless). Aroma is notes of honey, wood, white wine (minerals, citrus zest, flowers), apple peel, hint of alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, flat carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A very clean and well-made wine-like mead. As with Medovina, its strengths are in its elegance, clean fermentation (no fusels), and attention to detail. Although its labeled as a sweet mead, this is FAR less sweet than most dessert meads (especially from Poland). Extremely quaffable and wonderfully balanced. If you like spaetlese/auslese rieslings, you are *totally* going to dig on this.

JoeMcPhee (8466) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
750 ml bottle. Pale straw colour, still mead. Sweet light honey aroma. Quite subtle, floral, faint alcohol. Flavour is also quite fresh and floral. Very subtle sweetness. Not terribly complex or interesting.
