blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2013

Dfonorow (1217) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2013
The pour is pale yellow/milky white with alright lacing left on the glass. Aroma is fairly complex with notes of honey, peach, apples, and white wine. The flavor is more subtle at first with some slight fruitness/honey and transitions into a boozy overripe fruit finish. Medium bodied for a mead leaning more towards sweet than dry.

Bottle... This beer rocks!... Hazy straw-colored mead with sparce, but thick and beefy legs. The bouquet is a blend of wildflower honey, funky fallen apple and funky fallen peach accompanied by a mild note of ethanol. Full-bodied and sticky with the dawn of carbonation from over two years of warm storage - and the bottle wasn’t brand-spanking-new when I acquired it. The flavor presents wildflower honey and fuzzy fruits - pretty much as the commercial description reads. Sweet, warming finish with a nice hint of acidity. The 18% ABV is certainly well-disguised. This world class mead was provided by KickInChalice!

Steve_0 (2234) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle at the Colorado Mead Tasting ’12. Pour is golden orange with no head and great legs. Smell is floral, honeycomb, light apples, a touch of wood, vanilla, and fruit. Taste is white grapes, almonds, pear, wood, honey, and flowers with a dry lingering finish. Syrupy mouthfeel with no carbonation. Nice mead and not too sweet.

2012 Colorado Mead Tasting at Armin’s house. Thanks to Matt! Pours a light clear yellow appearance. Tangy, earthy/herbal, floral, apricot aroma. Not quite as sweet as the other Kuhnhenn meads. Somewhat dry finish with a moderate boozy burn. Peach, floral flavor. Kind of interesting.

Pour out of 8 oz bottle, clear yellow with no head, aroma has notes of floral, honey, apple, hints of some slight earth, touch of peach, hints of white grape. Taste is nice floral, dry honey, grape, peach, nice apple, finishing dry, slightly bitter.

notalush (4640) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Colorado mead tasting 2012 - this is dangerously light-bodied for the abv - the subtle flavors don’t help this, but otherwise, there are some nice things happening - nose has quite a bit of peach - the flavor has full notes of overripe apple (skin, flesh, core) - flavor is sweet, but for the strength, is surprisingly dry - finish of sweet white wine and floral character - some alcohol heat, but given the abv, I would have expected more - I like it.

PhillyCraft (2852) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle. Pourish a cleaish straw light golden color with no head or lacing. Nose is filled with honey wax, light plastic, florals, and some light citrus. Aromas also has that playdoh quality similiar to the gorillabilly series. Taste is very rich and earthy honey, brown sugar, hay, citrus but very light. I got way more peach out of the bourbon barrel version which was kinda odd. Medium to fuller bodied for a mead with a syrupy mouthfeel. Solid.
