3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle - Pours clear red-orange.It smells of honey, alcohol, and blueberry. The flavor is sweet and full of honey with a certain tartness from the fruit, but the fruit flavor is subtle. While I think I could identify it as berries without the bottle in front of me, I’m not sure I’d specifically name blueberries. It works. It’s sweet enough that it would be best with dessert and I think I’d prefer a bit drier, but it’s not cloying.

From a bottle at the GTMW 2011. Poured a light purple with no head. Aroma of honey and booze with some wild berries lurking in the background. Taste is not overly sweet and the blueberries are muted in the background. Dry finish.

Some good Mead, fruity, so it tastes like a nice wine. Not my first choice for a drink, but I enjoy it.

Bluish color with an aroma of blueberry, mildly sweet orange blossom honey, and some yeastiness. Flavor has some light blueberry, orange blossom and blueberry/wildflower honeys and a yeasty bite. OK, but they could have done much better here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. The still, clear body pours the color of rose wine. Thin legging drips down the side of the glass. Aromas are obviously blueberry-centric, with fresh floral honey notes backing up the fleshy fruit. There is a wisp of alcohol detectable on the nose. Flavors are semi-sweet for a mead, to the point of being almost vinous, with fresh blueberry and light honey notes working well together. As the appearance foreshadows, the body is a bit on the light side. This is one of the drier meads that I’ve experienced. Interesting stuff.
