Pale blond color. Sweet floral aroma, daisies and May grassfields; light lemon, very light vanilla and talc. The mouthfeel is semi-dry, but soft; the flavor is citrusy, light oranges, with moderate acidity, elegant; the final is original, quite spicy, peppery.
An interesting alternative; well brewed.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly pale orange. clear and still. The nose is huge citrus oil, tangerine. Acidity is noted. The honey is secondary it seems, but there is a vague floral quality. On tasting, the fruit is dominant, shifting it into a heavy citrusy slant. The honey affords some floral and bitterness. This is semi-sweet at best. Interesting but the fruit well overwhelms the base mead.
