A sample at the meadfest, huge apricot flavors, very grassy, liked it but I really like apricots
Bottle from the Source.
slightly hazy light golden color with a smattering of bubbles when first poured. Apricot, light vanilla, some sherry like oxidation and just a hint of cardboard and higher alcohols. Didn’t enjoy this one very much.

375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy blushed apricot gold with no head. This is a still mead. Mild aroma of sweet honey with just a hint of apricot. The flavor is very nice with clean sweet honey, apricot and surprisingly a bit of subtle smokiness towards finish. Mild alcohol warmth at the swallow. I found this to be more sweet than semi-sweet, which is fine for me. Enjoyable.

$15.99 375ml. Pours with a mostly clear orange hue with strong legs. A few stray bubbles towards the side of the glass (odd). Aromas of dried fruit, apricot, tea, honey (lightly spicy), nectarine, pear and light alcohol notes. Flavors show some very nice apricot flavors (like an apricot tart). Very juicy. Medium-sweet balance. Good/decently strong acidity. Slightly grassy honey profile. Finishes a bit tannic. Fruit flavors are quite juicy. A very very light effervescence (seems to have refermented a slightly in the bottle). Slight tannic edge, that makes the finish feel a bit drier than it otherwise might be. Medium to slightly full body (for a mead). Tasty.
