2 oz sample from tom10101, thanks a lot man! Apperance is a clear thick yellow. Aroma, ginger, lime, sweaty socks, peppermint, and curry. Really very different smelling, but very interesting nonetheless. Taste is honey, lime, ginger, and curry. Dry finish with light spice, medium mouthfeel. Overall this a really interesting mead, not overly sweet, with a variety of flavours. Very happy to have tried this!

sample from julienhuxley, thanks bro! clear extra pale yellow pour with some nice legs. fragrant cumin, lemons and limes - hint of tartness, floral and spicy honey, ginger, other spices. flat carbonation, medium body - oily; very lightly tart, sweet and very spicy cumin finish. everthing but hot - no hot component in fact. good balance of lime/spices but not really my thing.

Sample thanks to JulienHuxley. Pours a clear yellow with not much legs but still looking like a nice still mead. Nose is like strolling through an herborist shop with curry and nutmeg upfront. Some lime, too. Taste is spicy and the curry part is really evident here. Nice honey, not too sweet or cloying while still being present. Nice acidity and no traces of the alcohol content. Body is medium and coating without being heavy. The spices tingling might be helping too but they are never too much and almost subtle. Overall a really solid metheglin, I would buy that again!

2 oz sample from bottle (375 ml). Thanks to JulienHuxley. 2013 vintage.

Appearance: Clear pale yellow with sparse legs.

Aroma: Nice coconut features, fresh curry, lime, ginger and honey.

Taste: Coconut, lime, fresh curry, moderate sweetness, a bit of alcohol, ginger… wow, there’s a lot going on here!

Palate: Medium body. A bit oily. Zesty. Moderate spices and alcohol warmth.

Overall: I was expecting the worst from this one but this is really good! Good balance considering all this is going on here. Super tasty and flavorful. My favorite mead from Kuhnhenn so far. Color me impressed!

JulienHuxley (4136) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
2oz sample, Bottle purchased in March 2013. Clear very pale straw colored pour. Aroma is spicy, curry, banana, coconut, light minty aroma, lime, lots of ginger. Taste is sweet, not nearly as spicy as I would have expected from the aroma, lots of coconut, almost banana, light lime. Palate is med bodied, slightly watery with a boozy finish, a bit thin. Better than I expected.

Nip sized bottle. Poured a yellow color with no head. This one was, well, definitely different. Curry, lime, citrus, and well, interesting.

Ferris (7579) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle - Curry, coconut milk, honey sweetness and some acidity. Clear gold. Tastes just as it smells. Unusual and hit the mark, unfortunately there would be no reason on earth I would want to drink this.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Bottle: 2011 release, 187ml nip. Bright, electric yellow body with good clarity; completely still, no bubbles at all. Lovely aroma of smooth cinnamon tree bark, light tropical coconut butter, warming potpourri spice, caramel, honey sweetness, & just an exceedingly subtle hint of lime buried in the background. Sweet, delectable nose. Taste follows the aroma almost exactly. Heavy cinnamon up front; lightly spicy but controlled by the mead’s sweetness. Toffee, sweet coconut oil, tropical suntan lotion vibes, a bit of clover honey, & a small bit of citrus zest left hanging on the palate in the aftertaste, thanks to the lime. Strange sounding? Yes. Delicious? Absolutely. This mead is awesome. New batches are not this good, but the nip bottle releases are great.
