On tap. Terrible. Worst thing I’ve ever drank. Pours like dirty water. Translucent and just slightly more yellow/brown than tap water. Aroma is non-existent. Taste is just awful. Toothpaste, medicinal, throat spray, chewing tobacco, and vomit. Please never make this again.

650ml bottle. Yellow gold colour with a white foam head that dissipates away. Aroma of honey, floral, melon, syrup. Taste is floral, honey, with some jasmine tea notes. Light bodied, slightly spritzy carbonation, dry finish. Quite drinkable.

Taster at The Mondial de la Biere in Montréal. This was my first mead.I think this was a good start. The color is a clear blond with no head. The taste and aroma was sweet of honey with some herbs fruit and a nice floral finish . I liked but I canot compare it with any other.

Pours cloudy golden yellow with a small white ring. Aroma is light sweetness and straw. Taste is low body, residual sweetness, fizzy carbonation. Tastes like a crappy soda.

JStax (6504) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Draft pour into a snifter. Crystal clear brown with some signs of moderate carbonation. Specks of white lacing. The aroma has sweet honey and fruity orange zest. Orange zest comes through nicely in the taste. Medium to light body. Really easy to drink. Not bad.

Wish I checked the ratings first. This is not meant to be a good mead. Instead is meant to be a bad cider. They just want to make a chugable gluten free alcoholic beverage instead of a mead.

RCx240 (198) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Pale yellow-gold in colour. Slightly hazy. Small, frothy white head. Aroma of jasmine, flowers, honey. Tastes of pear, honey, and jasmine. Light body, with a slick, oily texture. Very soft carbonation. Finishes lingering, with a slight dryness. An interesting experiment, if nothing else.

Notas predominantes de mel em um cerveja clara, com pouca formação de espuma, suave e refrescante

My first mead so I can’t compare, but I like this stuff. Hazy yellow with fizzy white head; floral aroma of honey. Taste is mainly honey and jasmine tea. Pleasant carbonation, easy to drink, very refreshing.
