One of the most incredible experiences. I love beer, not wine, but I idolize this gift from the gods. I've had it on tap and out of the bottle. I absolutely canNOT wait for my next encounter!

My first ever mead and I loved it. Sweet and floral with some nice heat backing it up.

Best mead I've ever had-- hands down. Too bad it's retired and so hard to find these days. Price is a bit high too (~30 bucks), but that would never deter me because it's 100% worth it. Very glad I got to try it before it goes entirely extinct. You can't go wrong with it, really, IMO.

Really well made and extremely tasty. Price is quite high at $30 but this is something that should last, most moderate drinkers, quite awhile. This mead also has a huge bite to it so drink it cautiously... Definitely something I would recommend.

An exceptional mead. Not your typical beer. Very sweet and something that really makes you happy to be alive. Enjoy!

The pour is light amber with no head because it is a mead.

Smell is very sweet floral and honey

On the tongue there is a thickness that would come with a mead. The hops is only noticeable on the aftertaste. Sweet on the tongue and very floral.

A very easy drink for the ABV. No kick that barlywines or other high ABV beers may have. It fits in neatly between a hard liquor and a high ABV red ale.

The slight honey and hibiscus notes make it a great after dinner drink for people that do not like a dry red wine and dislike a scotch.

Draught. Reminds me of sherry. Very expensive.

Look: light amber, no carbonation, and obviously no head
Smell: Honey, Peach, Floral
Taste: Absolutely amazing! While I like mead on occasion, I have never particularly liked sweet mead. That changed today. Tastes like it smells but better. The alcohol is present, but not at all overwhelming. Simply delicious.
Mouthfeel: nothing surprising here...slightly syrupy with a mild astringency from the alcohol.

Overall: Really glad I put down the $15 for this at Pouring Glory in Ft. Worth, TX. A big departure for this hop-head, but a really pleasant one.
