From notes. Poured from a bottle at Schramm’s on April 20 as part of The Rocket Flight. The pour matches the others. Clear golden yellow with no head or lace. The aroma is definitely more alcohol forward than the others. There is a soft pineapple to lessen the blow and a delicate honey behind that. The fruitiness of this is easily overpowered by the alcohol. The flavor is much more balanced. The earthiness of the honey work with the delicateness of the pineapple and they do well combating the alcohol. The mouth feel is viscous like you’d want with a little sharper alcohol forward aftertaste. The honey and fruit poke through, but this one is definitely in the lower half of the flight. arminjewell (9744) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Pour on tap at the meadery, slightly hazy golden pour with no head, still pour, aroma brought bacon, pineapple, honey, some slight caramelized notes with a hint of spice. Taste is sweet pineapple juice, honey, caramelized sugars, slight spice, finishing sweet. JaBier (8445) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Sample at Schramm’s on 8/9/15. Clear yellow pour with no head and some legs. Aroma of pineapple and meat. Pineapple juice flavor with honey and slight meat accents before a sweet finish. FrankHammer (25) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Oh man, this one is interesting. The smell is like smoked ham almost, maybe bacon-y. The taste couldn’t be more different than the smell. Super juicy, sweet pineapple. Incredible flavor. I wish this was bottled. lbnlaxer (28) - Canton, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Kind of a weird smell - smoke and molasses. Kinda hazy. The taste is crazy and doesn’t come anywhere close to the way it smells. Heavy, heavy pineapple. Can’t taste any of the alcohol. Man, this is delicious. Thick and syrupy. Also slightly oily. The sweetness lingers on the entire tongue.

Very complex mead. Nose is mostly smoke maybe a bit of molasses. First taste smacked me with pineapple but less and less each taste. Honey takes over instead. Very enjoyable. jules1211 (23) - Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Weirdly smells like ham.... But amazing pineapple flavor...hides the alcohol well, so good CountPrattula (64) - - AUG 15, 2015
Strange, somewhat musty aroma. Clean golden color, absolutely ravishing pineapple bomb on the tongue. jalford4 (22) - Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Smells like the moment you open a Hawaiian pizza... in a VERY good way. This is very tasty, super bold pineapple flavor tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Tap @ Schramm’s: Semi cloudy golden color with no carbonation. Tropical nose, light pineapple with a big honey sweetness behind it. Light evergreen, tree bark, & alcohol as well. Flavor is lovely, tastes like a honey covered pineapple slice. Very slight tartness in the flavor with the honey overtaking the sweetness in the finish. Leaves a nice, lasting tropical essence on the tongue afterwards. Really good stuff, as always.
