A hazed blonde mead with a nice aroma of clover honey, orange and black pepper. In mouth, a weird mix of honey, mint, black pepper and tooth paste. Bottle at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 19 2012.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Sugar Maple. Clear amber with no head. Aroma of eucalyptus, black pepper, honey and herbal notes. Taste is black pepper up front, then flex-all with mint, honey, alcohol and more black pepper on the finish. It kind of grew on me as the herbal notes faded and the pepper came more to the forefront.
