Citrus Mead provides us with a new adage that mead is not just for breakfast. It is great anytime. The flavours of orange and grapefruit provide the palate with a subtle tartness to awaken the taste buds. The residual sweetness from unfermented honey makes this mead melomel a delightful all-day beverage

Maybe my bottle was bad, but this had aromas of citrus and fusel, a fake citrussy paint-thinner taste (yeah thatís right, not even real paint thinner), and an oily, sugary feeling in my mouth. A real, overpriced disappointment.

This pours like a murky lemon-lime soda (50/50?), a little fizzy to boot. Light breadiness to the aroma along with lemonade and Tang. Tastes like a wheaty, honey-touched, lemon-lime soda followed by a sugary cloy, light chalkiness and an alcohol hit. Wow. This is like no "mead" Iíve ever tasted, and if it isnít my lowest rated one to date Iíll be extremely surprised.

Alcohol, lemon and honey aroma, hazy yellow. Flavour is lemon and a mild alcohol, some lemon soda quality also. Tart and dry. Average. Thanks joey_capps.

Bottle- Aged one year (not sure if it helped). Pours yellow body with a slight white fizz that fades quick. Aromas of honey and faux fruit with corn and other vegetables. Sweet honey and alcopop cirtus flavours. Dry finish, with some lingering sweetness reminiscant of sweetener. I donít have time for games here.

Why oh, why. Quality K-mart honey, cheese, barnyard and peas. Flavour isnít all that bad. Some sweet gueuze and lemonade. Looks funny, tastes funny, smells funny. I donít get the joke.
