Many thanks to SinH4 for sharing! A clear pale yellow colour. Aroma of medium sweet honey, some lemon, lemongrass. Taste of sweet honey, sweet grapes, lemon, interesting! anstei (2664) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 10, 2017
Sample. Pours clear pale yellow. Aroma is lemon peel, pollen, blossoms, honey. Body is medium, honey sweet, fruity, and yes, hops indeed. I only notice it because I know. Sweet palate. Not entirely balanced and too much blooming petal fruit. Tmoney99 (15034) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2017 Draft. Poured clear pale color with good legs. Moderate to heavy floral honey, earthy and citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a thick smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex honey flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Pleasing smooth alcohol finish. Standout mead. Ritzn (1890) - GERMANY - NOV 3, 2017
Looks like urine. Aroma is sweet honey with some herb garden, slightly rotten butter, tree bark. Taste is sweet honey with slight alcohol and butter pretzel. A bit alcohol warmth. Not that balanced. Not my favourite mead. SinH4 (6393) - Garching b. MÃ¼nchen, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2017
Bottle sample, so many thanks cgarvieuk & FinnIckler! Clear golden color with no head. Aroma is lemon peel, grassy hops, cat piss. Taste is lemon peel, grassy, honey sweetness, but not too much. Oily mouthfeel with a tiny bit or carbonation. Interesting, incredible that this is 12%!

I think my version had something besides galena, but simcoe was right. Nice balance of hoppy and honey, sweet and bitter/tart, trending a touch more towards sweet. VERY nice. Rudzud (46) - Cherry Valley, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 19, 2017
Enjoyed at the 2016 Copenhagen Beer Festival in Boston, MA. Reviewed from notes.
Poured a nice crystal clear darker straw with a wonderful honey forward aroma with some very nice floral hop. Incredibly bright and aromatic on the taste as well. Not overly cloy or sweet with the hops really making the mead itself pop. The lemon zest works wonderfully here as well. Very pleasant and tasty.
