This pale gold mead has aromas of lychee and sherry with some vanilla notes. It is medium-bodied, semi-sweet, with flavors of sherry and honey. It finishes dry with a long tannin conclusion.

Bottle courtesy of Alan at Ericís October 2013 tasting. Pours a clear lightly golden yellow body. Aroma is burnt plastic, abrasive floral notes and glue. Mouthfeel is prickly and harsh with notes of glue, burnt plastic, rubber, light honey, soapy fruits.

Bottle cracked by Al at tasting, looking forward to this offering until we opened it. Notes of fake perfume, potpouri, light honey, and sweetness. So carboanted and hard to get down. This thing was seriously rough. Donít know why so many of the mead madness releases were terrible. Need to get back to the nip size bottle quality Kuhn.

Poured a clear yellow color for the bottle with aromas of wood, light sherry, and some honey. Flavors follow suit, light flavors with some boozy aftertaste, decent mead overall.

Label says "Sherry Cask Citrus Blossom". Pours very pale gold with some bubbles, which I find odd. Nose is peach, pear, some vinous white grape possibly. Mouth is sharply carbonated, so I donít know what the deal is at this point. Lots of lighter fruits and some white grape, with a long, distinctive fermented honey finish. Finish is a tad too much in its sweetness and somewhat medicinal feel.

BottleÖ Pours clear and looks a lot like water. However, looking more closely, Iíve decided itís a faintly tinted straw color. After a swirl, nearly one hundred legs drip down the sides of my glass. The nose is acidic and Iím picking up neither sherry nor honey, but thereís a mild, woody note here. The flavor is semi-sweet and semi-bitter; a roundabout way of saying bittersweet, I suppose. I taste clover honey and more than a trace of wood as well. Tannic, coarse finish that dries way out.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle acquired via trade with punkrkr27! First true mead by Kuhnhenn that I didnít care for. Green apple in aroma, tart and crisp with the honey backbone. Lots of grape, sherry, and vanilla in flavor. The alcohol has a presence here. Seems disjointed. Things just donít meld together as they should. Shame.

Extremely dry, little bit of sweet cherry... Nice but not great. A bit of fruitiness but this some needs to be a bit sweeter to mellow out the flavors.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
[4261-20120120] 6.3floz bottle. Heavy floral apple white wine booze characteristics in the aroma. Clear, pale yellow body has no head but some thick legs. Floral honey wine flavour has a punch to the face with booze. Medium-full boozy body. Wow, boozy and phooooow. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1
