Bee venom inducing a more intoxicating flavor....hmmmm

I got stung in my ear by one of the bees from a pretty big hive in an Ironwood tree on our property last week
...that induced intoxication of another sort

This is old, but OP said he'd update after a year or so. Any new news? Pics? Flavor notes?

Sorry I forgot to come back and update everybody on this; I don't use this site that much. It came out great! Very dry and since I bottled it with champagne yeast so it came out very much like champagne - crisp, clean, and delicious. The heather added a great aroma, but not as much as you'd find in a Fraoch Heather Ale (which is a good thing, I think).

I can't say whether all the healing properties of honey/mead are true, but I definitely felt better after a glass or two! A guy in my brewclub said it was the best mead he'd ever tasted, which I though was pretty awesome

Nice! Glad to hear it. Definitely want to make this (or a variation thereof) someday.
