Thanks to rudzud for sharing. Spring '10 vintage.

Pours a very light head, semi hazy golden honey color.

Nose has sweet candy, big mead like honey character, fruity, boozy, a bit of esters even, light pear like stone fruit.

Taste brings sweet candy, lots of honey, fresh honey, bit of pear, nice fruity stone fruit like character, faint esters with a bit of booze, tingly booze. Finish is still semi sweet, more fruit and faint pear, light tingly estery booze, more drying honey flavor.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, lighter carb, plenty of warming tingly booze.

Overall not bad, but nothing really special.

Review from 4/2010 notes. Poured into a small canning jar. Pours a medium orange amber, one finger white head and light lacing. Light fruit and honey aroma. A mild, pleasant malt and honey flavor. Fruit and malt middle. Dry finish although generally fairly sweet. Honey flavors not as intense as mead, but a nice change of pace.
