On draught at widmer- '99 for Oregon brewers fest! Pours cloudy golden with no head. Nose of floral clover honey. Taste is of pure clover honey syrup, somewhat boozy, very much like an ice wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at Widmerís new Brewery and Pub. 1999 vintage. Clear yellow color. Aroma is flowers and honey. Taste is fresh, concentrated honey and light grass. Aging does suit this well, making the honey even more prevalent.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Iím not sure what is happening here but the 1998 vintage of this, in 2013 IS INSANE. So smooth and sweet even at 11.3%(originally). Good god that is delicious.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Citrus aroma, almost acidic. Slightly green-tinged clear pour. Honey with orange blossom flavor. Residual sweetness. Low carbonation and thin mouthfeel. A drinkable mead, but get the sampler size.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Tasted sweet and tart, with pronounced honey flavor. A complex palate, and a very smooth beer. Aroma of lemons and honey. Cloudy, like a white peach, in color. I wondered if the slight spiced flavor was hops, yeast, or actual spices. Yummy.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 4, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy white-to-pale yellow in color with a medium white head. This has a great honey aroma. The taste is medium honey, medium sweetness, but big tartness from the unfiltered yeast. This is very unusual; Iíve never had a mead quite like this. It could best be described as a mixture of hefeweizen and mead, and thatís what it looks like, too. Fascinating in its blend of apple and honey flavors.

On tap at the Widmer pub. Pours hazy milky yellow with a thin white head. This is my second go at carbonated mead and I like the texture, well the first one was a bit heavier and better, this was a bit to spritzy for me. Very light, sweet honey and lots of clovey spices. Sort of fruity character to it, almost felt like a mix of beer and mead at times, maybe due to the thinness. Interesting, but the taster was plenty for me.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2008
1/19/08 On draught at the Portland brewhouse. Aroma is classic sour mead, lightly fruity sweet/sour, with disctict honey character. Appearance is the real departure, with straw haziness approximating that of a belgian wit and no head. Flavor is a blend of classic honey mead character and ciderlike notes of pear and apple dancing with a faint resiny character that is more like paper than the normally objectionable starchiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, warm, with a sweet finish. Overall, quite good, with a lot of traditional character blended with cider notes.
