Week 1 recap:

3/1 Espresso Mead: This is our Citrus (blossom) Mead blended with Schuil Italian Roast Espresso beans. There is a lot going on here. Coffee and honey notes play off of each other in both the flavor and aromas. There is a pleasant sweetness that cleans up quickly due to the lively acidity on the finish. There is a one bottle per person/per day limit. $18 375mL

3/2 Pineapple Pear Pinot Grigio Pyment: It is a blend of citrus blossom honey and our brand new Pineapple Pear Pinot Grigio. It is slightly sweet with a delicate fruitiness and a cleansing acidity. Yummy! $18 375mL

3/3 Pepper Pot: This VERY SPICY mead is Citrus Blossom Mead with three types of peppers(red chile, ancho, and chipotle). It has loads of honey with complex pepper aromas and flavor. It is hot…but not over the top. $18 375mL

3/4 Spiced Peach Icewine Pyment: It is a blend of our Citrus Blossom Mead and our fantastic Okanagan Spiced Peach Icewine. This mead is sweet, tart and has a wonderful aroma of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. $22 for a 375ml bottle.

3/5 Sherry Cask: This version of our Citrus Blossom Mead was aged on Oloroso Sherry cask chips that were rehydrated with our Sherry for many months. Every time the chips absorbed the sherry I added a little more until they were saturate. Ruich and subtly oaky. $18 375ml

3/6 Green Apple Riesling Pyment: This mead is a blend of our best selling Green Apple Riesling and Citrus Blossom Mead. Slightly sweet and fruity with a crisp-clean finish. $18 375ml

3/7 Mocha Mead: It is a blend of Citrus Blossom Mead, epresso coffee beans(ground), cocoa nibs, and cocoa powder. It is intense in both flavor and aroma. $18 375ml

Kuhnhenn Brewing Company is located at 5919 Chicago Road in Warren.
