Pours a light gold color with a spicey honey nose. The spice comes through in the flavor with a subdued sweetness and an earthy finish. A very slight alcohol burn at the end. Not bad, but this Meadery has many better offerings.

Bomber to snifter. Pours a pale orange gold. No head. Aromas of honey, orange, and saffron. Taste is saffron, honey, orange juice, with a hint of hops.

Bottle from superstition meadery. Pours a clear golden. Aroma is dominated by spices, with mild notes of orange blossom. Tastes like a slightly muddles mix of honey, spices, and Hops. Worth a try, but not my favorite.

Bottle share courtesy of Dak, thanks! It pours with a clear water looking body that has a slight yellow to gold hue to it. The aroma offers up spices that have a mix that’s earthy, a bit of curry and then a plastic waxy Barbie doll. The taste is earthy and plastic and waxy as well as spicy notes that have an edge of mild tartness and some booze. Interesting mead but this really doesn’t not do it for me where the finish is met by a decent dryness.

DesertDevil (618) - Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle shared during a mead tasting hosted by daknole. Super-sweet nose of orange, honey, and a floral mix. Pours a medium yellow. Sharp taste of honeysuckle, ripe orange, and a touch of saffron. Prickly palate. Just OK.

Pours a light gold color. This one smells better than the taste. The aroma of coriander and hops are present. There is something odd I can’t put my finger on with the taste. Maybe its the saffron, coriander and hops are all fighting to be the dominate flavor.

Heavy honey smell. Very nice. Taste was a nice kiss of hops with heavy honey taste. Aftertaste was also heavy honey.

Not the best of the meads I’ve had tonight. Not enough flavor. Kind of watery and not sweet enough.

kcorum10 (325) - Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours a light gold color. For some reason this one just doesn’t do it for me. The flavors are in competition for my taste buds. This is my least favorite of all I’ve had today. Get flavors and aromas of some coriander, orange. Not sure the hops work very well in this. Not sure, but something is off.

A little dry. Fragrant w a bit of an acidic undertone. I taste the subtle orange the rest is a bit blended for my palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by Me
