    SKOLL !

    The perfect mead to ride our current epic California storms. This Crisp, refreshing mead has helped me ward off cabin fever and focus on better weather ahead. I'm saving the majority of my order for springtime frolicking in fields of green grass.

    Lovely golden color.No off smell to this one. Definitely notice the cinnamon flavor. Very refreshing.

    Confused - might need time

    I’m not getting the snickerdoodle/fall notes others do, but to be fair my palate is not the most refined. It’s a brisk lightly flavored mead to me, but I can’t pick out any particular flavor(s). It did help me through a good portion of the latest crossword, however. Going to let the rest of the pack sit awhile - sometimes aging is the secret formula to mind blowing mead. Will update down the road.

    It tastes like fall

    It is delicious. The spice gives hints of nutmeg and the finish give hints of pumpkin pie, cozy celebrations with good company.
