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 (1231) - 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

It pours a straw yellow with a thick pillowy long lasting white head. It has a earthy and honey aroma. It tastes like flowers, honey, dough and vanilla.Iím enjoying this beer.

shrubber85 (10252) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle. Honey, earthy malt, and light chamomile aroma. Hazy golden yellow with minimal head. Sweet honey and light malt flavor. Body on the light side. Nothing bad - straight forward without anything that jumps out to me.

Poured into a snifter. I was quite happy to see this. This is a great style if done right, but no one does it let alone right. 4.0 A: Mildly hazed yellow orange color. About one finger of fluffy white head. Retention is decent, not really sure what the style is supposed to do though. Plenty of lacing. 3.25 S: Damn, I donít think this is going to be what I wish it is. Yes, thereís a good bit of honey, but it isnít the insanely potent honey that I experienced in some of the best braggots Iíve come across. Somehow the chamomile is even more potent than the honey. Wildflowers and hay earthiness. 3.25 T: Again honey and chamomile lead the flavor. Thereís plenty of chamomile, but not enough honey for me. Again, hay and earthiness. Moderately sweet malt base. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a pleasant spritziness. Super smooth. Good here. 3.5 D: Itís not bad, but it doesnít hold a candle to the best that Iíve had. Admittedly, the vast majority of the better braggots Iíve had have been homebrew. In any case, Iím glad that breweries are at least trying. ★ 1,109 characters DavoleBomb, Oct 14, 2014

Patrickctenchi (5800) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle: Pours slightly hazed, honey-gold with a small, fast, off-white head. Slightly smoky honey aroma. Taste is mild, slightly spicy, honey, light fruit. Sweet and smooth, but nothing that stands out....OK, but rather uninspired.

22oz bottle pours a clear gold with a ring of white head. Nose has honey and urinal cake. Flavor is just honey. Nothing else. Woof.

500ml bottle at the November 2015 DC Gathering. Poured a clear dark golden color with a small white head. Aroma was honey, some booze. Lots of honey and hot caramel notes.
