Fermentation got going quite well (photo was of day 3).
The onion smell has faded significantly, the floral note is still there.
Where did you happen upon onion blossom honey? Was it expensive vs other varieties (like orange blossom or tupelo)?

A friend sells raw honey as part of a green sideline business. One of his suppliers put hives where seed onion is grown. It was about the same price as orange blossom

Nice score. I tried Google to find some to buy, but, haven't found any yet.

So the mead was just racked. It has started to clear, but it is still very fresh.
Not bone dry on hydrometer 1.005 tastes a bit sweeter.
Light floral note, hint of fresh onion. As is I would drink a small glass, hopeful that it will be interesting when its aged a bit.
