Bottle from happy Harry’s - pours pale clear pink. Aroma is plums with some booze underneath. It’s sweet verging on cloying, but I think it stays on the right side of that line. Overall, solid, but boring. DiarmaidBHK (5371) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle from Happy Harry’s 19th ave location. Pours light red but otherwise clear. The plum is pretty prominent here both on the nose and in the taste which mitigates the sweetness by giving it a bit of tartness. Not bad. BVery (10711) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Hazy pinkish orange pour, no head. Very sweet - plums and honey. Fiancé says she picks up tequila like alcohol elements in here. Kind of reminds me of schnapps or Mad Dog 20/20. Interesting. DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2012
I know I’m not a message guy, but this was over the top sweet. Aroma had nearly pure alcohol in it as flavor was a sugary mess. Not for me. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2012
This poured a syrupy pinkish yellow color with no head. Aroma was sweet honey, and plums mainly. Flavor was plums and honey as well a bit sweet and cloying, but hey, its mead.

Bottle. Thanks Jake! Poured a light rose. Mild aroma of fruit, honey, and florals. Taste is sweet plums, berries, and honey. Nice combination of sweet and tart. Grows on you. MicroGrog (387) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Dusty notes from Pistol Pete’s spring fling thing.
I think I sampled this in my Yard’s tasting mug, notes aren’t exactly lengthy.
-Smells of tingly apple cider, prunes, & some floral notes. Perfumey. Honey barely lingers in the background & isn’t much of a player overall.
I didn’t write much on appearance except this it was much lighter then expected.
Taste is green apple, apricots, mixed berries, & grape skin tannins. Extra cup of sugar. Syrupy. A bit of plastic sensed both ways. Warming for a low abv mead. obguthr (6530) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Honey and banana aroma, maybe some plum notes. Clear rose colored. Plum and hibiscus flavor. Honey is more in the background than in any other mead I’ve had. Banana in the finish. Silky texture, light body. Really easy to drink and very delicious. I got this for the North Dakota tick, but now I want to try all of this winery’s other stuff.

Bottled at World of Beer. Poured clear peachy-golden with a light white ring for head. The aroma was sweet with honey and plum sugars first and foremost.. more honey backed it up. The flavor was along those same lines.. began and ended with semi-sweet honey and toasted plums.. dried out toward the finish, leaving a trail of sweet and lightly-spiced plum. Medium-bodied on the palate with a solid feel and flow.. began sweet and thankfully dried out where it needed to on the back. Nice one.
