Nip sized bottle. Poured a golden color with no head. I initially didn’t get much peppers, but they are subtly there with some citrus/lime.

6 ounce nip bottle, poured a clear yellow color aromas of light jalapenos, lime, and honey. ALmost smelt like an authentic mexican food. Flaovrs were honey light jalepeno, and some light lime. The jalapeno was actualy very subtle, but nice overall.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma has an awkward combination of jalapeño, honey and a bit of a chemical note. Flavor starts with a honey note that has a growing jalapeño heat in the finish.

Bottle thanks to FlandersNed. Pours clear yellow. Nose/taste of chili pepper, honey, vanilla and lime. Finishes with mild pepper burn immediately followed by fresh lime. Medium body.

PhillyCraft (5979) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Pony bottle. Pours clear light gold, with thin clear white head. Aromas of fresh cut green peppers, cinnamon, key lime and spicy cedar. Taste is filled with cinnamon, green peppers, sugary honey, lime juice and burnt plastic. A good bit of heat from the alcohol not the peppers. Executed so well, Kuhnhenn is king of meads.

little nip bottle. 6oz? too small regardless if sharing with my mead loving wife but i digress.... pours barely a notch beyond transparent with a little haze, still of course, leggy but not thick with no head as expected... aroma is nice and refreshing with more than adequate notes of jalepeno upfront with lime taking a backseat but apparent nonetheless. the backend consists of smoothened out sweet honey nectar while the peppers maintain an active role throughout. honey becomes increasingly prominent as it warms up to room temp... honey takes precedence in the flavor, semi to mostly sweet upfront which pairs alongside the jalapeno component which adds a nice pepper tone and mild degree of heat that adds to or supports the strength of the mead. the heat and booze factor increases as it is consumed while the lime that gets lost with the other action surrounding it. body isn’t too big or cloying at all, perhaps just shy of medium for a mead. flavors are nice, peppers add a unique nuance so generally well-executed overall.

MeadMe (1612) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours deep yellow. Aromas of fresh cut jalapeño. Only subtle sweet notes. Flavor is lightly vegetal. Fresh jalapeño with seeds and pith removed. Hints of earthy and only the slightest bit of heat at the tip of the tongue. Light lime rind in the finish. Love heat and would appreciate a nice blast here. That being said this captures the essence of jalapeño lime nicely.

racer_x (4) - Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2012 does not count
Bottle shared while losing a heartbreaking round of bar trivia. Pours still and gold. The jalapenos dominate the aroma with subtle hints of sweetness and citrus. Lime at the tip of the tongue yields quickly to very green jalapeno. Finishes sweet and slightly vegetal with a mild burn. Pepper and honey are very nicely balanced, but the lime could have made a bigger impression. Still, no one has a mind for mead like Frank at Kuhnhenns.

Another terrific Kuhnhenn mead. Lovely aroma. Heat balanced by the honey, with lime kicking in at the finish. Would also work without the lime.
