Welcome to the forum!!!!,
Hi, I make a go of this, last year was my first year, I managed 72lbs, it was a very light color to me, extra light amber I am told, I live very rural, and my bees gather from wild sources, there are no real farm areas for at least 3 miles, so what ever is in the distant neighbors yards.
I figured that most of there collection was from natural sources, mustard, clover, what ever grows wild here, I think that there must be a type of anise around as well. Reason--
Taste= well to me it was sweet and rather a light floral taste, but most striking to me it seemed to have a licorice flavor. Since I LOVE licorice it was fine by me, I asked others but most said they didn't think it did, however my daughter also thought it was licorice flavored, with out my telling her my taste test. So I don't know, however I gave lots away, and have had folks come back begging for more. Unfortunately I gave most of it away, except for wht I needed to get by till this years harvest.
