Pours gold with a nose full of floral grapes. Sweet flavor that has a sticky sweetness from the honey and grapes. Slight alcohol burn, but a very nice mead.

Bomber into snifter. No head whatsoever. Pours a bright yellow/gold color. Aroma is sweet, honey, and a slight white wine smell. Taste is smooth, sweet, honey, finishing with a pronounced white wine taste. The 13.5% alcohol is well hidden by the sweetness and smoothness of this mead.

Very interesting and complex aroma. Sweet and flowery, some marzapan aromas. Flavors light sweetness and winey flavored, great base wine.

tchaos (336) - Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours a light Amber color. Nose is a honeyed moscato, similar to a moscato d’asti. Taste is a nice, sweet blend of honey and grape. A very good dessert pyment.

MeadMe (1473) - Riverview, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Pours pale golden. Aroma white wine like with a wonderful grape component. Flavor is grape skin and honey. Build white wine tones with a touch of apple. Medium in body, tasty

Bottle share courtesy of Dak, thanks! It pours with a clear watery body that has a slight yellow hue. The aroma offers up sweet honey goodness that quickly picks up a strong sort of biscuit to dry toffee like earthy dark sugar sensation. Interesting aroma. The taste is sweet with honey and fruitiness edged with thick earthy notes that feel sort of toffee like and kind of biscuit. Cool and different experience for sure. This works.

Very light straw color pour. Aroma is wild grapes with a mellow sweet floral honey notes. The grapes and honey complement each other. Almost like a dessert wine.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 Odd smell. Strange honey taste along with a hint of what tastes like windex or something similar; hard to describe, but just "off" to me. They said it was made with moscato grapes, but it didn?t taste like any moscato wine I?ve ever had. I didn?t really like this one too much compared to the others, but I do love mead, so it was alright compared to beers I?ve had. New taste in 2015: Okay, this one lacks the Windex taste of the last one I had, but it was still kind of "off".

DesertDevil (655) - Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle shared during a mead tasting hosted by daknole. Very light straw color. Light muscat grapes and mellow honey on the nose. Very sharp taste of boozy white wine and honeysuckle. Sweet honey overwhelms the finish. Hot, prickly mouthfeel. Not bad — the muscat grape aroma is pleasant — but it is nowhere close to as good as many other Superstition meads.

Clear gold pour with sweet honey aroma. Flavors of sweet white wine (moscato) grapes and honey with balanced finish.
