I found some Clover Honey at a large warehouse store (BJ's) which is like Sams Clubs larger rival (Stores is much bigger).

Would I be better off looking for wild flower or orange blosom to start my first batch or would Clover honey due just fine?

i've made wonderful meads with clover honey from costco which is a warehouse store just like BJ's...i wouldnt be surprised if it was the same honey.

Clover should be fine for a first batch, especially if you go a cyser route. This isn't to say that there aren't Varietal tastes, there are.

I know some honeys can have an added taste such as orange blossom, but what does Clover Taste like? I'm a bit curious but whats the flower look like that clover comes from?

I don't want to make a cyser just yet, I'm planning a straight up mead for my first batch. Maybe get a few more Glass carboys and make one with spices and make some wine for after I get married. (Whenver that will be)

All those years of puzzle buildings has given me some good tolerance for having to wait for good stuff.

This is a clover flower....at least where I'm from (U.S. Northwest)...I'm sure there are different varieties in other parts of the world...
