SlovakSniper (5514) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2016
Beaux parfums de miel, de vanille, de fruits exotiques et de fleurs. Bouche mielleuse, vanillée, riche, florale, poivrée. Tout à fait délicieux. Une bouche huileuse et même un peu liquoreuse. Une finale chaude sur des notes de fleurs mielleuses. Je suis content d’avoir redécouvert ce beau produit de chez nous.

j12601 (10259) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold. Sweet honey on the nose, floral with a touch of melon. Slightly thick mouthfeel, warm sweet honey with more melon notes and touches of strawberries. Warming alcohol comes through as it moves toward a sweet finish, full of heather and berries.

Clear brilliant gold. Amazing aroma of floral honey, some sort of flower like hibiscus, and vanilla. Very pleasantly sweet aroma. Flavor is rich and sweet and floral, like hibiscus or some other flower, but sweet with honey tones and vanilla with a good warm burn on the finish.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2011
Very, very pale straw colour. The aroma is very floral with a little bit of soft sweet white honey flavour. A touch of residual sweetness on the back with a fairly light sweetness. Very floral with almost a kiss of herbal flavour. It certainly doesn’t drink like a 14% mead at all. Nice.

Bold honey aromas, light yellow. Bold taste and yes, citrus. High a.b.v. and a smooth drinker, dangerously so.
