COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Gachupines (952) - USA - JUL 24, 2013
Cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is slightly musty with notes of honey. Flavor is overly sweet without much other defining characteristics. Basically a somewhat boring beer with honey added. Wife: 2.7

Gold pour, floral honey and grain aroma. Flavour is biscuit and honey. Very smooth and pleasantly sweet but not overly sticky. Light carbonation but the palate holds up well. Pleasantly surprised with this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Crystal clear pale straw color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Clover honey nose and flavor is clover honey, hops in the background. Clean finish. $7.25 for a 22oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

This a super sweet that works for the honey flavor, nice and malty no hops. But it feels like a great autumn beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is a bit weak but has malt and honey. The appearance is golden. The taste is amazing. The palate is smooth. Overall a winner!

sample from bottle at 2014 houston big brew fest. Golden with small head. Bready and honey sweetness. Mild spice and light hops. Pretty solid.

UDBeernut (1850) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Picked up this braggot because you just don’t see them enough. Pours gold, clear, quick active head. Sweet honey, mild butter, thin body, that has elements of syrup texture.

onceblind (4541) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Slightly hazy golden with a thin rocky head. Sweet malty honey nose with a waxy clover honey backbone mixed with sweet golden toast malts. The flavor is more earthy and bitter than I like with a dryish honey backbone and malty grainy doughiness and golden toast. Not as Mead-y as I has hoped.

Yeasts, chamomile, floral hops, and sweet honey on the back of the palate. Haven’t had too many braggots before but this was pretty good.
