3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with Vinny, Frank and Andrew. Pours a clear body. Aroma is strong fruit flavor, alcohol and flowers. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of floral booze, soap, nectarines, peaches and wine. Overall, another interesting Kuhnhenn mead thats really only faulted by its strong, somewhat overwhelming, booze character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2013 Sticky sweet, like most of their mead. Honey, citrus, sweet and sticky. Hard to discern the "peach" from the "apricot", but either one or both of them are there - very sweet and tasty and fruity. Alcohol comes out as it warms, but never gets too hot.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Bottle through trade first mead tried for me! Pour has a clear white wine color. Aroma is bursting with fruit, juicy peach, chardonnay sweetness, bright honey, and grape skins. Mouth feel has some texture I guess from the honey and it lingers on the tongue for a minute. Flavor has chardonnay grapes, apricot, and honey. The sweetness is just right much like a nice desert wine and the alcohol cuts into it a bit. So drinkable and everything I had hoped it to be!
