On cask at the Bruery’s 1st anniversary party 5/16/09: Pours a mostly still transparent copper amber with a thin ring of white bubbles. Great aroma of sweet, complex floral dark honey and caramel with a touch of light fruits. Starts with a lot of rich honey sweetness and complex brown sugar before a drier, warming toasty finish. Pretty well-balanced and should age well.

Cask at Real Ale festival. 15% what! Very sweet. Somewhat boozy/ Very good. Lots of honey aroma. Some barley. Good, but hard to drink.

Cask at Pizza Port Real Ale fest 2009. Pours a hazy medium dull peach color with zero head. Sweet honey and candied peaches on the nose. Flavor was very sweet with lots of honey and candied tree fruits. A little sweet for me, I’m just learning about meads....can definitely tell this is a quality product.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 23, 2009
On cask at the Bruery. Pours with a hint of head over a hazed golden body. Aroma is quite nice for a mead lover with florals, honey, eucalyptus, caramel, toffee and wood. Taste is awesome with a real presence of the barrel aged wheat wine and a nice herbal honey and butteryness. Alcohol is kept under control, but there is a light oxidation, although it doesn’t detract from the experience. Syrupy mouthfeel and very light carbonation...excellent braggot!

Cask pour at The Bruery’s anniversary. Orange-gold color. Lots of honey, flowers and some caramel in the aroma. The flavor is boozy, sweet honey, lightly fruity and floral, with the alcohol drying the finish slightly. Low carbonation and sticky feel. Lots of honey, lots of alcohol, and a bit too much in general for me.

On cask at the anniversary party. Unfortunately I don’t remember much about the color but the aroma was sweet and alcoholic. Flavor is sweet like hard candy or honey with some oaky vanilla stuff going on. Very low on the carbonation and thick.

On cask at the anniversary party, this is pretty tasty. Nicely balanced sweet flavor, it’s very weel done.

Sample at the anniversary party. Wow, this was tasty. It had a nice subtle honey sweetness with a nice little alcohol punch too it, big thanks to Brian for letting us try this gem. This also had a big alcohol aroma too it, great stuff.

Cask at The Bruery. This is a blend of The Bruery’s wheat wine and honey mead. Aroma of honey and vanilla. Sweet mead like taste dominated by honey and vanilla. I also got a woodsy oak flavor that was wonderful. Better than any straight up mead I have ever had. Slightly carbonated, very interesting and unlike anything I have quite had before. Well worth trying.
