Bottle pour into a mini snifter. Pours a pale yellow. Still. Big curry spice in the aroma. Pretty sweet coconut, but the spice really dominates.

> A yellow curry explosion
[ Bottle ][ brokensail ][ 250mL ][ Globe ][ Tasting ][ 2/1/14 ]
>> Pours a clear, light golden with okay legs. Nose is really insane yellow curry, powerful and assertive. Taste is cinnamon, sugar, spices. Palate is thinner than expected with high alcohol thinning it out over viscous honey. Still, easy to drink and lots of fun to try.

Bottle @ GTís Cat Cabana. Thanks to Derek for this one. Clear golden pour with no head. Really nice vanilla, coconut, and Thai yellow curry. Really nice lime and spicy clove note, lemongrass, and honey. Tons of sweetness on the palate. Honey, vanilla, and coconut notes. Nice Thai yellow curry, lime zest, and lemongrass. A pleasant spiciness and a touch of alcohol Really good.

Bottle in trade from umich43jm, thanks Jason! Pours white gold and fairly viscous. Aroma is cinnamon, clove and curry with a hint of citrus. Flavor follows nose. Flavors of coconut and lime balance out the spice. Nice.

2013 375 ml bottle. Pours clear pale yellow, still. Nose has a lot curry mixed with some tropical fruit, cinnamon, and lime. Taste is moderately sweet with some very nice spice to it. The lime brings a light tartness to finish and its pretty dry too. I donít taste much coconut at all. Very nice mead that I sipped on for a long time.

Pale straw color. Nose is lovely -- sweet, savory, and exotic, with lemongrass, green chili pepper, perhaps curry leaf, and a nice mango and other tropical fruit. Mouth isnít quite as focused but still quite good. More lemongrass, ginger, a faint bite of chili pepper, of course a pleasant honey note throughout. Faintly hot, green chili finish. Good stuff!

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear blanc in color with no head and no legs. Aroma of lime, curry and gingerbread. Honey and gingerbread flavor with a touch of lime before a dry white wine finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2012 6.3 oz. bottle, sent from northernbrews (thanks a lot, Jeff), pours a still, clear yellowish beige. Nose has curry powder upfront, with coconut and mild honey further back. Flavour surprisingly cohesively blends curry and coconut, with a boozy kick and much more subdued honey than a more conventional mead. Warming from the booze but not overbearing. Very interesting and enjoyable mead.

Nip bottle from FlandersNed shared with Allen on a cold night in the hood. Perfect mead sipping conditions if you ask me. Pours a pretty clearish ginger ale color with no head or lacing. Aromas and taste of curry, garam masala, clove, ginger, vanilla, coconut, opium, lime, honey and all kinds of cinnamon spice. Medium body with a long lasting, and lingering finish. Such an interesting and unique mead from Kuhnhenn. F*ck yeah.
