Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 24, 2007
RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. Clear straw, no head. Smooth, sweet honey nose and flavors, more honey than I’ve ever tasted in a mead. Just a hint of oak. The body is silkier than I have ever experienced in any liquid. Just, WOW.

Skyview (5183) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2007
From a 750 ml bottle shared at JK’s Spring Gathering, pours a clear golden yellow color as a premium white wine appearance. Aroma of sweet clover honey, maybe a slight sweet orange but the sweet honey is very present. As this mead comes to room temperature, taste is very sweet sunflower honey, flower pedals and a touch of dill. Palate is very thick and smooth as silk but not too syrupy. A sweet finish, smooth and light-medium bodied. Absolute awesomeness. Over the top quality product.

And then skyview goes ahead and brings this rockin mead! Light yellow color with no head. Sweet honey aroma, like I just popped the cap on a jar of clover honey. The taste is superbly alcoholic honey. It strikes a great balance for the mouthfeel, is strong on honey, light with vanilla and not screaming in alcohol. Complex taste is not here, but I don’t think that’s what it was trying for and it is beautiful as is.

Thank you skyview for sharing. Oak and honey on the nose on an exceptionally well done sweet meed.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 13, 2007
750mL bottle, courtesy of Skyview. Thanks, Bob! Pours a clear, medium straw color; headless, with decent legs. Generous, honey-laden and floral aroma; dense, layered honey character. Full mouthfeel: intense honey and viscous sugar character; floral, honeysuckle, and vanilla; hints of pear; intense sweetness without overextending itself; this goes down so quickly; lengthy, honey and sugar finish; minimal show of alcohol.

JK (4416) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 19, 2007
UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 Thanks to Skyview for sharing. This is very sweet, like drinking honey. It has more honey aroma and honey flavor than any other mead I have tasted. Very sweet, smooth palate. It goes down way to easy for such a potent drink.

MiP (13597) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, 11.5%. Weak sweet aroma. Very pale yellow colour. Sweet flavour, spicy with some nice apple juice. Sweet aftertaste, more apple.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle. [After party @ Papsoe, thanks buddy] Pale yellow color with an oily like lacework in the glass. Aroma of flower, mild raisins and honey, mix of mild spice, hint of alcohol. Over the palate came herbal and mild floral notes with warming alcohol and honey. Medium to full bodied with a flat carbonation and thick mild alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet flavor. Herbal spicy honey sweet lingering finish. 7 / 3 / 8 / 3 / 15

Ungstrup (29226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2009
Bottled. A light golden mead with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of honey and rather spicy combined with notes of roses. The flavor is sweet with noets of honey, flowers - especially roses, and lots of alcohol. The alcohol leaves a light burn in the mouth. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
