COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Historically a meade was made to celebrate the union of a couple and given to them for celebration of their marriage. Truly defined as a braggot, BBC Luna De Miel is a fermented honey ale flavored with a blend of raspberries and blackberries. Luna De Miel is a refreshing change from standard BBC offerings. Luna De Miel is effervescent, fruity, and light, yet warming from its moderate strength. BBC Luna De Miel is offered in a wine glass.

5/15/2011: BBC Luna de Miel: Raspberry Meade... Aroma: Smells like an CHERRY Dum Dum sucker; artificial. Appearance: Watermelon color; bright and clear complexion. Flavor: Nice level of honey sweetness with a punch of sharp alcohol; powery raspberry flavor. Palate: Light with delicate carbonation; it’s a bit too thin for my preference. Overall: Not great; the small taster sample was more than enought to determine that I didn’t want anymore... ever!

Draught (sample) at BBC brewpub in Louisville, KY. Rating #50 for this beer.

This is a Meade? Seriously? Doesn’t taste like it as all. Of only this thing tasted as smooth it tastes. Still quite nice, but not sure this should be a considered a meade

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle at RBWG. Pours bright ruby with a fine, creamy white head. Lots of freah raspberry on the nose. Medium sweet flavor with more cirao, fresh raspberry, not too sugary, not strupy, little honey character. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Clean finish, more fresh, underripe raspberry, mild suggestions of honey. Tasty, good balance for the ABV.

b3shine (4460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Draft to 6 oz taster at BBC. Looks good; a reddish-orange with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes of mild raspberries and honey with a nice (slightly carbonated finish). An easy-drinking mead.

queenholly (2617) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Tap at 3rd & Main location. Honey and light raspberry aroma. Clear apricot pink with a white ring and light lacing. Light sweet raspberry flavor, very smooth easy drinking, alcohol completely hidden. Light watery body. This one could probably knock you on your can, as easily as it goes down.

Draft at brewpub. Honey, yeast and raspberry aroma. Pink-orange with slight head. Raspberry and honey flavor. Very pleasant but not very complex.
