4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle brought back from Kuhnhenn. Was pretty excited about this one because the best mead I’ve ever tasted is also a boysenberry product. Clear amber to brown pour with no head and no legs. Huge berry nose with the sweet honey character typical of semi-sweet and sweet meads. Berry flavor with honey sweetness before a sem-dry finish. Nicely done.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle via trade, shared with Paul. Pours a deep purple body with no head or lacing. Aroma is super ridiculous berry mixture - I’m assuming boysenberries is dominant in this case, but the bouquet is great. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of boysenberries, raspberries, light tart, honey and wine. Another awesome mead from Kuhnhenn.

Pours a deep berry juice purple. Aromas of mixed berries. Flavor is berry forward. Earthy, fruity, juicy and sweet. Light honey as well. Very nice. The intoxicating berry aroma wafted from the glass for hours long after this one was gone.
