Bottle at James’ mead tasting. Pours a clear yellow. Sweet orange and honey, supple and smooth. Smooth and velvety, subtle orange and very nice honey. Tastes a good amount like orange blossom honey, very nice and delicate. Warm alcohol and soft orange.

courtesy of retorp. pours golden with a strong fresh floral honey like aroma with light wax undertones.. Overall taste is sugary, honey, sweet and thick mouthfeel. Something that would go well with a nice desert.

This mead pours very pale, almost water-like in colour, with faint yellow highlights. An orangey, floral bouquet sifts through its straightforward fruity honey flavors. The mouthfeel is classy, not too heavy, not too frail, and the finish is drier than the first half of each sip, making this enjoyable to white wine lovers, I’m sure. Quite simple throughout, this will not be too memorable to me.

Pour out of bottle at the brewery, clear golden pour with no head, still pour. Aroma brought notes of big honey, floral, vanilla, slight fruity notes, touch of citrus. Taste was a mix of honey, slight booze, vanilla and fruit into a bit of citrus, finishing sweet, slightly dry.

Picked up the day after the 2007 Winter Solstice Party. Thanks again Lori. Pours clear water with a tint of straw and no head to speak of. The aroma is big sweet meadness and a bit of esters. I can almost taste the sweet mead through my nose. Yum. The taste begins with very sweet slick thick rich honey goodness along with a bit of floral essence. As midway approaches a drying sensation pulls some moisture out of my mouth creating a moment or two of refreshment. Toward the finish the honey sweetness returns creating a pleasing sweet finish. Double Yum.

JaBier (7958) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Glass at Kuhnhenn. Clear yellow with no carbonation and minimal to no legs. Aroma of lemon and honey with slight orange. Lemon flavor up front with a sweet honey finish. Not bad by any means, but falls short of most of their other amazing meads.
