A Braggot, historically a harmonious blend of mead and beer, gained notice during medieval times and dates back as far as the 12th century. The combination of three unique honeys and the complexity of the hops and chamomile in this braggot style beer create a whimsical brew that is floral with a tart sweetness and a much awaited honey finish. Praise to the queen bee and her colony for this refreshing and satisfying brew.

Bomber. Nose is very sweet, honey and spices with aggressive air, floral overtones, somewhat acetone-leaning alcohol (may be closer to genever). Pours bright clear golden with a rocky, jiggling off-white head. Taste is cloying with no tartness or bitterness, but thankfully the sweetness fades quickly and there’s a very mild earthy-bready note for distraction. Floral-perfume notes are very pleasant and thankfully on the low side, there’s and oily component and very light warmth but it seems all things associated with this brew are ephemeral. Very thin, almost watery watery body. Honey is multifaceted and interesting. I generally dislike such sweetness but the trick is well played here, and this whole bottle is likely to go down dangerously quickly!

On tap at the Blue Dog in Chalfont. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Honey (but not overpowering straight honey nastiness), with some floralness. Actually better than I would have guessed.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose has moderate aroma, with honey being most salient, and just a bit of tea in there. Taste is pretty sweet, actually, and has a lot of honey in it. Light, but not really my favorite sort of thing.

Gold with a small head. Very perfumy aroma. Some lavender, clover. Dry honey flavor. A bit of malt sweetness. Strong floral perfume. Medium body. Much more mead than beer.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter a golden yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet clover honey-wow. Some floral spiciness Flavor is very unique. Like a beer more like a mead. Sweet off the top with something that makes me think of celery/vegetable. Really good flavors going on here. Nicely carbonated. Easily an excellent summertime beverage.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Aroma is of honey and grain. Appearance is a clear medium yellow with a tiny white head that dissipates rapidly. Taste is very good with flavors of honey, banana, corn, and spice. Surprisingly good and refreshing. Overall a beer I’d buy again and recommend. Cheers.

legion242 (2162) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Poured a very pretty yellow with a mellow nose. Lots of honey in the first sip, a bit cloying, but no alcohol hinted at. Slight hops mixed in. If it was about 2 to 3 degrees less sweet, I would say it was refreshing.

Super lively carbonation is the first thing I notice in the pour. Gold color. Aroma of honey and more honey. Tastes of honey also, though not as heavy as I anticipated. Certainly a different brew. I know nothing about mead other than the mead halls I read about in Beowulf, which came before the braggot, so this is new to me. I do like it, however.

Bottle. Pours a really lovely gold with a high, fine-grained, puffy white head. Nose is honey, berries, apples, nutmeg, and a touch of floral notes. Sweet, obviously; there’s definite honey, and some carbonation, and the beer and yeasty notes are well integrated. My only complaint is that I want a little more acid; it makes me wish I had an orange in the house to toss in a slice. Finish is long, with more of the fruit coming out. Good.
