Aroma is honey, celery and mildly perfumed. The flavor is honey, celery, malts and medium sweetness/somewhat cloying/alcoholic finish.

AWISLguy (1180) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Steve’s in Fitchburg. Pours a golden orange with a smooth white head. Aroma has sweet grapey alcohol, some straw and some fruits. Taste is initially of an interesting sweet/tart/bee’s hive blend. Starting sweet fruity, then the earthy, heavy sour/bitter bee hive component kicks in. No words ... Medium bodied, and quite dry. Finishes alcoholly, but not hot, with some sweetness and a lot of length. Never have had a mead, and no idea what to expect. Too alcoholly and without enough flavor for enjoyment. Perhaps a few more tries at the style will help.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear light-medium orange with a short white head. The aroma picked up sweeter honey and rubbing alcohol with some floral accents.. came across as strong and raw. The flavor found rocket fuel throughout, with offshoots of floral notes and sweet honey.. hot and bitter on the long finish. Medium-bodied and sharp on the palate.. not enjoyable.

madvike (2671) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle - Pours amber with a thin ring of light tan head. Nose is rubbing alcohol, light honey, and a dry crackery malt. Grainy, and not much in the way of sweetness. Taste is better. The alcohol, while still present, is dialed down and comes off as bitter with some citrus qualities. There’s some faint oakiness, dry graininess, and some sweet honey on the finish. Astringent and grassy on the finish, with more booze and some minty herbal qualities. Slick and thin, with low carbonation. Not my cup of tea, but an interesting style.

Wow, no one is buying (or at least rating) this. Are braggots meads now? Either way, this 12oz bottled pours into a mini/tasting goblet with a halo lacing atop an orange-amber clear body. Aroma...... well..... um.... hmmmm... this is rather flummoxing. There are lots of disparate characteristics. First there are some vegetable-green hops, alcohol, honey (duh), sweet cereal honey but not overly sugary smelling. Its an earthy honey mixed with a hop character I don’t like too much. So, its not my thing but its kind of interesting in its craziness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly light and thin, not what I expect for an 11% braggot. Mimics the flavor, I was expecting a strong sipper and I get a light gulper. Its mostly earthy thinned out honey with a long herbal honey aftertaste a bitter hoppiness. Not what I was wanting and too thin for a braggot. However, I am happy this was made cause there are like zero braggots available.

Patrickctenchi (3458) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle: Pours dark, nearly clear amber with a small, off-white head. Apple and honey aroma. Malty, slightly bitter/sticky honey flavor. Strong herbal bittering. Very interesting and different.

tmoreau (2315) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Shared 12 oz. bottle, poured to snifters, and showed a clear, copper color, with a light, off white head that reduced expeditiously to a ring & film, and left some light spots of lacing. The nose was fresh spice & herbal notes, with additional hints of celery & season-all. The taste incorporated a mellower version of these, with a bit of fruitiness, and a moderate bitterness that was lingering & dry. A finishing, puckery dryness, along with some of the spice & herb from the aroma, were probably honey generated, but as a key ingredient in the style, I didn’t notice much of it. Haven’t tried many Braggots, but didn’t sense a good balance between the beer & mead components, with the mead in this case, being the lesser. Interesting, and fairly presentable otherwise.

Lemke10 (757) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2014
This pours a clear, amber color with very little head. The aroma is slightly sweet very much like a barley wine. The texture is fairly thick and syrupy. This smooth drinking brew has very little carbonation and has a very interesting barley, honey, bitter taste. Although it in unique, I don’t see this as a style everyone will like.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Riley’s Wine of the World in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear brownish amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind spotty lacing, a thin ring and plenty of viscosity tears. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of hard pitted fruits, clover honey toffee and light tropical fruit. Taste is full bodied, more honey and bees wax in flavor than aroma, some grassy hops and caramel malt. Finish is semi-sweet with a short-lived spicy hop bite followed by honey, bees wax and a very faint wintergreen aftertaste. Everything expected in a caramel malt bracket.
