A tremendous gift from theisti helping me get my 50th (or 51st) State. Poured a clear yellow color with no head or lacing (since it is a honey wine and all). Aroma a sweet wine with hints of honey and flowers. Flavor has a warming presence to it, with the elderflowers present in the aftertaste. Meads aren’t my thing, but at least I’m done with North Dakota. Thanks, Tim!
Bottle, sample, courtesy of jtclockwork. Pours clear and almost transparent. Aroma of honey, vanilla, blackberry and elderflower. Quite heavy sweetness and light sour. Medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation. Surprisingly enjoyable. jtclockwork (17100) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2017

Courtesy of Beerhunter: Poured a clear translucent pale golden colour with very soft floral and honey notes on the nose. Taste was off dry, pleasent and very comfortable. Overall, a nice mead, and glad to see North Dakota gone." Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2009

bottle thanks to bu11zeye. clear pour with a slight yellow tint. nose of honey and not much else. not bad on the palate with a huge flavor of honey but not much else besides alcohol. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a slightly yellow tinged water like clear body with a bit of legs. Aroma of weeds, dandelion, fennel, honey and must. Taste is fennel, garlic, dandelion, grape, rose, honey and anise. Syrupy, but some what thin mouthfeel for a 11.5% mead.
