Here it is. I didn't know which one was which...so I closed my eyes and chose. After cracking the bottle, there was no question that this is the Grapefruit mead.

The color is a beautiful...and CRYSTAL clear mead. I would not call it "Star Bright" or whatever the real judges call it, but it is as clear as it needs to be.
This mead is really gorgeous. It appears to have nice body and sheets down the glass when swirled, but really tries to hang on for all it's worth.

The taste is unmistakeably Grapefruit. It's crisp and clean, but I think it's too dry for me, as Grape Fruit has always been served to me with HEAPS of sugar. This is more true to the nature of fresh natural grapefruit. In smaller sips the "Pith" is apparent, but not over powering. In a good size swallow, it's not noticeable. The acid of the grapefruit along with it's nature hides the youth and the reported 20%+ abv pretty well.

My overall impression....This isn't my favorite mead, but it is definitely the Best CITRUS mead I've ever had. I was actually pretty anxious about a grapefruit mead. It isn't something that I'd even have considered, but I'm now quite glad to have a bottle, and really looking forward to the next bottle...although I don't have a clue what it is either.

Thanks Man! It has been a pleasure trying your mead. Job well done.

It should taste extra good, you wouldn't believe what that bottle went through to get there. Well you as in BigKahuna would, but other ppl. You know.

It seems like a FOX TV Show when a mead maker moves in with an AG brewer....They end up with **** like Lambic Braggot.

You know what would be cool, bury some bottles in the snow up there, take a gps reading and then come back and get them some time later.

They'd be as cold as the rockys and frost brewed at least.
