Sampled at the 2015 Cajun Cafe Cider and Mead Festival. Pours a deep red-amber with no head. Nose is flowers, deep berries, some huge honey, and sweetness. Flavor is huge honey,flowers, and some berries with a full body and booze all over. bursprak (3203) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle. Still hazy amber pour. Floral notes, alcohol burn, honey ,herbal notes with a fairly dry ending. EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 18, 2015
This mead pours a slightly hazy straw color with a slight pinkish hue, and there is no head. There is a lot of booze (and I mean a lot of hot, solventy alcohol) in the nose, but there are slight notes of honey sweetness, floral hops, and hibiscus flowers. The taste is quite boozy, quite sweet, and a touch sour with an finish that is hot with some residual sweetness, and the palate fuses an oily texture, medium-light body, and a flat carbonation. cgarvieuk (24448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2015

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with no head whatsoever. Aroma is full of dry earthy honey with a bit of earthy hibiscus underlying as well. Flavor is full of sweet honey with a decent amount of booze and a pretty strong earthy hibiscus note.

On cask at Belmont Station. Haha with a Viking helmet on the cask. Pours a clear ruby color with obviously no head. The aroma is heavy herbal and sugary, heat is all over. The flavor has a sugary honey base and some interesting floral notes, but for me the main flavor was hot alcohol, burning, chemical like cheap vodka. Lots to like, but not for me. seehaferb23 (270) - - APR 1, 2015
This $30 dollar bottle of mead is well worth it. This was definitely a dessert drink. Cheers! ordybill (1758) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Poured from a large ceramic bottle into a snifter.
Aroma- Has a sweet fruit aroma with a strong alcohol smell.
Appearance- The color of watered down apple juice, with no head.
Taste- The flavor is not bad but it is nowhere near tasting like a beer. Once you get that out of your head the honey flavor isn’t bad, there is a strong alcohol taste and bite.
Palate- Dry, light bodied beer with no carbonation. Has a syrup like texture.
Overall- I think this is slightly over-rated by those before me. It would make a nice aperitif.

Bottle, poured into Duvel glass. Absolutely no head. Aroma is thick honey, floral hops, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, but not cloying, with slight notes of hibiscus and hops, and a heavy alcohol burn. As for mouth feel, it is a little thick for y liking, but overall still a very excellent mead. Skinnyviking (9569) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2015
Mead tasting at Taphouse. Ceramic bottle. Mild sweet herbal honey aroma. Flavor a bit more spicy than herbal because of the hibiscus. The sweetness of they honey and the high alcohol percentage is however still present. Long finish.
