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 (1073) - 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

boxofrane (2414) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Draft at UNOs. Pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is basically a pile of honey. The taste has a honey flavor but is not nearly as sweet as expected. There is almost a watery mess of jelly.

dlihcsnatas (456) - Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Golden brew with decent head. Smells and tastes of sweet honey. There is a floral flavor that is more noticeable in the aftertaste. As expected from a honey brew there is that light coating on the tongue after drinking. Very good and refreshing on this hot afternoon. Down side is the price and that makes this a one time enjoyment.

tillmac62 (419) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Clear copper pour. Normal lacing and retention, outstanding head volume. Light nose of honey with a touch of floral hops. Medium body with a very smooth texture that approaches creamy. Normal carbonation with a nice bit of effervescence in the middle and a finish that is slightly prickly. The flavor profile is quite good, but is a bit weak on intensity and complexity to warrant outstanding. Balance is superb. It begins with a light honey sweetness that flows into a slightly tart middle. The middle also brings a hint of hop bitterness and a subtle grainy biscuit character. This character is most pronounced in the finish. The finish is slightly dry and is where chamomile is most evident.

Darwenus (647) - Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Pours blonde in color with a fair amount of carbonation and foamy head. The aroma is heavy on the honey. A little bit of lemon and floral hops on the nose, too. The flavor is sweet but not cloying. Mild wheat, a slightly tart honey finish. I thought this was pretty good.

ZacM612 (311) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Slightly hazy honey color with white head that leaves a little lace. Sweet aroma with some spice. Nice tart flavor with a little hops and a sweet finish. Not bad.

22 ounce bottle - $6.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a near clear, soft yellow-hued body with a medium-sized, frothy, white head. Good lacing.

Smell: A scent of lightly malted barley with a thin toasted edge, thinned honey, a tiny pinch of spice and some floral, lightly spicy tones with a modest apple-esque fruitiness about it.

Taste: A modest base of pale maltiness with a moderately sweet honey flavor curbed by the chamomile and just a smidgen of herbaceous hops. Some slight apple, pear tones showing as it warms. Drying as you approach the gentle finish with a lingering hint, perhaps, of orange blossom.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Granted, there’s not a ponderous depth of flavor to be had, but I did find it fairly enjoyable and drinkable, which is more than I can say of some beers.
