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.

Pours hazy, reddish honey-golden with a nice buff head. Honey dominates the aroma while letting floral and fruity notes to share the stage. Strong flavor is mainly honey with straw, floral and raspberry notes. Firm texture has a strong and persistent fizz. A honey of a mead - get moony!

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2014 Tap @ Bluegrass: Murky pink body with hints of rusty copper. A lightly foamy & gray-tinted head fizzes out on top pretty quickly. Smells like herbal raspberry tea; sweet raspberry candy notes with undertones of herbaceous leafiness & mild grass. Taste is the same way, like a semi carbonated raspberry tea drink. Sweet raspberry juice, tea leaves, grass, & some finishing notes of residual sugar. Carbonation is a little prickly & weird. Tasty, but kind of spritzy & thin overall.

Draft at third street location. Now is honey and raspberry. Sweet as expected. Honey flavor is really convincing.

2/28/14. On tap at the brewpub. Served as "Raspberry Meade." Pinkish pour, no head, okay legs. Sweet raspberry and honey aroma, a touch of an herbal aspect, meh. Sweet raspberry flavor, honey, herbal, black tea in the flavor. Meh.

Glass at BBC on 9/13/13. Clear blush in color with a medium white head. Aroma of dry white wine, raspberry and honey. Flavor of raspberry soda and honey before a thin finish.

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; itís a bit too thin for my preference. Overall: Not great; the small taster sample was more than enought to determine that I didnít want anymore... ever!

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