3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Stone Sour Fest 11. Golden pour with a slight hazy and white head. Grainy malt, sweet honey, lightly floral, bread, funky sourness, and a bit of lemon grass. This was actually pretty nice, better then I thought it was going to be. I haven’t liked many of the braggots that I have tried.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a relatively clear folden color with a frothy white head.
S: A pretty funky smell to this beer. Lots of honey, bread, and graham cracker sort of aromas giving the beer some sweetness. There are also strong aromas of flowers, tart lemon, earthy funk, and grass. Maybe some oak, too.
S: Mild sweetness in the form of honey and graham cracker with a hint of vanilla. There’s a nice tartness of lemon and lemon zest, too. A bit of musty funk with a slight grassy and floral note as well.
M: Medium in body with rather high carbonation.
O: I anticipated this beer being atrocious but it was probably one of my favorite festival beers of the day. Pretty good stuff.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Must have been a bad batch. Buttery popcorn aroma and taste everywhere. No honey evident. Some sour notes at the end but just flat out bad.

Golden, bright white head, sweet nose, tar flavor, guessing this is some kind of sour mead.
