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, Iím not sure Iíd specifically name blueberries. It works. Itís sweet enough that it would be best with dessert and I think Iíd prefer a bit drier, but itís not cloying.

Bottle at White Winter Winery on Nov. 18, 2011. Bluish red pour, aroma and taste of blueberry. Enjoyable.

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.

Narnad (1458) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2009
2009 Peoria International Beer Fest. Pours a very nice clear, red and brown color with no head. Aroma is very sweet with blueberry, orange and a light alcohol notes. Flavor has blueberry up front and a wine middle with a very nice alcohol ending. Overall the flavors melded very nicely and produced a very tasty mead.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Clear light putple color, no head. Light blueberry aroma, some odd clove-like spice notes. Lighter palate - mild berry taste, a little dry on the back end.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2009
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 Iíve experienced. Interesting stuff.

Thanks to The Cheeseman for this! Pours a blood orange color. The smell is sweet honey and peaches. Thin bodied. Flavor is similar to a desert wine mixed with honey.
