Bottle at the Colorado Mead Tasting ’12, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks Man! Pour is hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Floral hops, honey comb, medicinal, herbal, lemon peel, citrus, and clove in the aroma. Tate is herbal, band-aid, lemon peel, white peeper, yeasty, and biscuit with a spicy finish. Light mouthfeel with high carbonation. Very belgian-esque and pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Colorado mead tasting 2012 - hazy gold - a rather fizzy pour - nose of orange zest, wildflowers, a bit of pepper - flavor is medium dry and very floral - spicy and peppery through the middle - moderately bitter and lightly acidic in the finish, with lingering peppery spice - maybe a little too bitter, but this is a nice beer - should probably be listed as a Belgian strong ale, though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a snifter. Limited release #4 of 12.
3.0 A: Moderately hazed dark yellow color. Three fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a bit below average and little lacing is left.
3.5 S: Big honey from the start, like it should be. Huge herbalness including chamomile and dandelion. Earthy and peppery spiciness. Neutral, lightly grainy maltiness. Pleasant nose.
3.5 T: Lots of honey, but I still want some more. Again spicy pepper, herbal tea variety of herbalness, and dirty earth. Clean, grainy malts.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a light spritziness to it. Smooth.
3.5 D: I’m a big fan of braggots, and while it isn’t bad, it’s not super complex or super potent. I prefer braggots to have an unholy amount of honey. Still, definitely worth a buy since there is a paucity of braggots on the market and this one is tasty.
