Bottle at James’ mead tasting. Pours a clear yellow. Sweet orange and honey, supple and smooth. Smooth and velvety, subtle orange and very nice honey. Tastes a good amount like orange blossom honey, very nice and delicate. Warm alcohol and soft orange.

Glass at Kuhnhenn. Clear yellow with no carbonation and minimal to no legs. Aroma of lemon and honey with slight orange. Lemon flavor up front with a sweet honey finish. Not bad by any means, but falls short of most of their other amazing meads.

chibuck (3509) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2011
a very clear pear juice color, no carbonation at all... the aroma is way to weak, only a hint of sweet honey, no alcohol... this is one of the most drinkable meads I’ve had, not overly sweet or alcohol, very restrained taste of honey liquor, wish a bit more was going... recommend

MeadMe (1602) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2011 Clear bottle reads dry orange blossom mead. Has some random numbers as well but I am not sure what they stand for. Pours very very pale yellow. The aroma is loaded full of honey, not overly sweet, sort of floral with notes of citrus, and booze. The flavor is a bit mild. Light orange blossom honey, lightly floral, earthy and almost waxy in flavor. No real booze in the flavor, just light earthy floral honey. Very dry in the finish. Nothing like any orange blossom mead I have ever tried. Good not great.

Pours a pale yellow color with average legs. Aroma and flavor of honey, it’s sweet of course, but not too sweet, The body is light and liquorous. Decent.

6oz niply bottle from a recent trade....a mostly transparent and lazy, light pale yellow, no head but rather silky legs running down the sides.... aroma is the most straightforward of the kuhnhenn meads that i’ve been able to try. sweet clover honey upfront with traces of fruit underneath although extremely subtle, at least to me... flavors are much akin to the nose with smooth sweet honey flavors initially, a touch of nuttiness, then a faint citrus fruity twang to follow-up in the rear which was quite nice. still a touch of heat which seems to be present in most of these. lighte bodied and less sweet than the other two before it and probably the most drinkable of the three.

Small little 6.3 oz green bottle thanks to my Secret Santa (sorry, I mean THANK YOU!!!). A bit of a different package than other Kuhnhenn meads. Capped and not corked among other things. Very pale, delicate, clear body. The legs are pretty insane. Strong, sticky, and completely stick to the glass. Buttery, honey, light wooden notes with flowers and orangey citrus following. Clean, lightly grassy. Great! Good sweetness but nice tannins in the back end of the aroma. This is a sweet mead. Taste is honey, sweetness, grassy-floral up front, finishing tannic and slightly dry in the finish with citrus notes. Not super syrupy as some of the Polish meads can be. Not super tannic either. Just pleasant and drinkable. Like a gewurtz. Medium to large viscosity. Quite pleasant.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2009
In short: A basic flowery/perfumy Mead. Boring.
How: Bottle 375ml. Age unknown. Tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Clear light yellow body with no head
In long: Nose is full of flowers, borderline perfumy. Taste is straightforward honey with some light tropical fruits notes and a lot of flowers. Nothing else to say about his. Mouthfeel is what a Mead should feel like. Quebec is crawling with Meads (called Hydromel here) and I find most of them rather boring. If this one was made in Quebec it would just be another run-of-the-mill Quebec Mead but since it is made in USA it is getting high ratings. Or maybe I’m little weird because I don’t care for Meads, baggy pants, rap music and mankind.
