Honey with a heavy pollen taste for mead?

I have some honey that has some kind of pollen in it that gives it a heavy nutty taste. Its not an unpleasant taste but its also not one I'd want in honey that I was using as a spread. I've never had honey taste quite like this harvest did. All the honey out of a set of supers I put on all at the same time had that taste, the rest of it was normal. Would it be OK to make mead out it? Can I expect that that pollen taste will disappear as the carboy settles?

Whelp, now whatever the bees were getting into is apparent now that fermenting is done. Mint mead anyone? It needs to age before deciding if it is paint stripper or mead.
