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.

Golden color with no head. Aroma and taste are both light and fruity. The honey has a nice sweet and floral character to it that sits well on the palate. A pleasant and unique beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazed orange brown pour with sticky white head and lace. Aroma is honey and cinnamon. Flavor is sweet honey, cinnamon, and bready/floral end. Medium body with good carbonation ok by me. Just glad I can buy this within 20 miles of my house

Sigmund (5987) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2015
650 ml bottle, from Costco, Sacramento, ABV is 7.5%. This braggot appears to be more of a beer than a mead. Golden colour, small white head. Brewed with clover honey, orangeblossom honey and chamomile, with alfalfa honey added (probably after fermentation). Sweetish aroma of honey, orange blossom and chamomile, some alcohol. Fairly sweet flavour, but still rather light bodied for its strength. Honey and chamomile notes. A slight alcohol sting. Very moderate hops. Well worth sampling, but not really my cup of tea.

Well, here's the deal. I recently completed a trip through the Baltics, where I discovered the honey mead beers. Loved them. The Honey Queen is a serviceable alternative, although not a full replacement. Enjoy.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Malt and light earthy aroma with light sweetness. Sweet malt and honey flavor with light fruitiness and orange. Medium bodied. Sweet malt and honey linger with honey and light fruitiness.
