PhillyCraft (2845) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2013
6 oz nipper courtesy of Flandersned. Pours a hazy candy apple red with no head or lacing. Aromas of black cherry, blossom honey, oak, dimetapp wild cherry and light wax. Taste is sour and sweet candy apple, vanilla, earthy honey, wood, cherry cough syrup and tons of honeycomb wax. Lots of cherries in this one, and also very smooth and oily considering the 16%. No heat present besides the warming effect in the body. Another beautiful mead from Kuhnhenn.

6 ounce nip bottle pours a nice looking red color, aromas of tart cherries, and some honey. Cherry aroma is not overpowering, flavors are tart cherries and honey, light on the palate, cherries blended nicely with the honey, another great mead from Kuhnhenn.

Pours red, aroma of cherries, strong and forward in the nose. Taste follows, tart and sweet, this is a really nice mead! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Thanks for the bottle, Steve. Pours a clear pinkish color. Great fruit aroma to this. Smells like a really great cherry pie. A little bit of fruit punch character to it, too. The flavor is quite sweet, but very drinkable. Plenty of cherry pie, a light tartness, and some fruit punch. Very much enjoyed this one.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Nip bottle thanks to womencantsail. Clear rose pour. Nice legs. Nose is similar to the cherry pomegranate. Lots of kool aid burst. Small vanilla. Taste is sweet, pithy, tangy. Nice but almost identical to the cherry pomegranate mead.

b3shine (4412) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle to snifter (2012 vintage, shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; like a still cherry mead should, but not overly red. Smells sweet and cherry with a little cinnamon too. Tastes like it smells with a tart finish that’s pleasant on the palate and hides the abv well. Good!

umich03jm (1572) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Pours dark red, some lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey and cherries. Taste is really sweet cherries at first but then tartness takes over. Really good mead. The sweet and tart balance nicely and the 16% abv is well hidden. Finish is warming. Highly recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle… Clear, brilliant, burnt-orange mead with very nice, Monica Brant-like legs. The aroma offers methanol, wildflower honey and a mild whiff of cherry. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. The alcohol doesn’t show much in the flavor and the cherries make a big-time appearance here, but a misplaced, moderate amount of bitterness sort of spoils the soup for me. Finishes bittersweet with a nice, tart kick. Nice offering, but I’ve had much better from Kuhnhenn. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2011
bottle... medium pink with a bit of red... all cherries on the aroma, a bit of honey... the tase is all cherries as well, a bit sweet and not a ton of other flavors going on, but good and easy to drink

Bottle thanks to FlandersNed. Pours reddish brown. Nose/taste of honey, black cherry pits and tart cherry. Moderate tartness. Sticky sweet mouth feel. Medium body. Well balanced.
