Poured at Shelton Festival, hazy gold with no head. The aroma is spice, honey, citrus, floral. Thin body, honey, citrus, boozy finish, good. alexsdad06 (11222) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with no head at all. The aroma and flavor have sweet honey, bigger floral character, orange zest, spices blend in nicely, some boozy heat to this, overall this is not just your typical sugar bomb like many meads.

Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with good legs. Medium to heavy floral honey, spice and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a thick smooth texture. Medium to heavy floral honey and spice flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate duration. Pleasing smooth alcohol burn. Solid mead.

750ml clear bottle, thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Hazy golden color. No head. Really interesting aroma and flavor. Mild honey, lemon, some bigger cookie-like breadiness, some creme. Spices are well-blended with the mead, no spicy roughness to this. Moderate sweet taste, but with a dry finish. Mild pleasant warmth. Bigger body. Mild slick. No carbonation. Good full feel. Nice dry finish. Excellent mead, very tasty. Love the unusual flavor on this one. A nice change of pace. Travlr (26405) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle sample at The Festival. Slightly hazy amber color. Aroma of coriander, orange peel, enough to remind me of a nice witbier. Taste is lightly spiced citrus, apple, tannic edges. Delicious.

Pours lightly golden. Aroma is a nice sweet orange liquor. Flavor is very much honey up front. Sweet think and darn tasty. The orange comes through in the middle, like a sweet marmalade. A touch of coriander in the finish. A nice sweet treat. Expensive but I am intrigued enough to seek out more. MicroGrog (476) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Pre-game tasting @Shelton’s The-Fest.
Clear, mellow yellow gold body.
Subtle warm sugar nose. Wax, lemon & orange rind, plastic.
Taste is bittersweet. Mellow & sweet, unidentifiable honey, warming coriander, & surprisingly mellower macerated zests. The coriander came off as the most potent, but nothing offensive or medicinal. Body thicker then thin. Slight acid & nippy alcohol on the finish.
Decent mead, if a bit subdued. Maybe better warm? jsquire (4662) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Pale golden color out of the bottle and still. Honey sweet nose with some floral spice notes. The taste is dominated by the honey sweetness with some orange candy and orange liquer. The finish kicks it up with the spices and something faintly hot. savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 8, 2010
750ml bottle. Clear golden yellow and still. Aroma of zesty honey, alcohol and oranges. The flavor is of sweet honey with the spices and orange just in the background, also a light alcohol taste. Semi-sweet with a slightly dry finish. Very nice Mead, the spices aren’t overdone and blend well with the honey flavors.
