2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A bit unusual color. More orange than golden. Ok intensity in the aroma. I just did not fancy it to much. Medium to full body. Oily texture and a bit dry texture. Lots of apple in the flavor. Also fruity and some spices. Some alcohol coming up.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden, oily fluid without any head or carbonation. The aroma has a citrusy touch, with flowers, yellow apples and surprisingly low levels of honey. Rather alcoholic for its 13% ABV, both in the nose and the mouth, but at least the alcohol aroma softens after some time in the glass. It’s fruity and quite citrusy on the palate, full-bodied, semi-sweet and warming, with some yellow apples and rosehips. Lasting honey-sweet and apple-like finish with a pleasant bitterness. I prefer my meads with more focus on the honey, but this is a fine mead anyway. 141123

Measured Final Gravity: 1077
Orange copper color, bright, cloudy. The aroma combines well the typical mead and hop ones; it’s also a bit orangey (Cascade? PNW hops?) and possibly floral. Very sweet, quite syrupy and thick, with moderate acidity, evident hop character (only light bitterness though), nice soft hop resins, hop oil.
Pleasant drink, vibrant.
