COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our braggot is a strong ale brewed with a blend of honey, red prickly pear juice, and a variety of pale malts. The addition of Alchemy hops help balance the sweetness while still retaining the natural honey aromas and flavors. The prickly pear juice adds a unique hue to the beer as well as a subtle herbal, quenching-like quality in the finish.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of scrizzz. Pours a clear orangey golden with a small white head. The nose has a little sweet malt, fruit and hops. Body is thick and a little low in carbonation. Metal, a little caramel, fruit and quite a dry hoppiness leaving even some bitterness. Pear? Perhaps not so much. If you’re accustomed to real Mead please don’t expect this to be anything like it. An odd bird indeed. 250311

fiulijn (14740) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Courtesy of Papsø
Deep blond color; lightly carbonated, and with a small collar of foam. Evident aroma of malted cereals. Semi dry mouthfeel, and the soft carbonation brings it more in that direction; no honey flavor, and just a mediocre malt/cereals flavor; moderate residual sweetness. The final tends to be drier, and bitter because of the hops.
Although not offensive, it’s a useless mess.

Travlr (11976) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Bomber from Whole Foods P Street. Bright golden color, no head, but moderate lacing. Aroma of honey and cactus. Taste is sweet, but not sickening. The honey outweighs the prickly pear. When I was a kid, we spent summers i Sicily and we ate the red fruit of the prickly pear cactus (called figo d’india). The newer Italian breweries seems to like brewing beers with odd plants, spices and fruits, so I’m surprised they haven’t done a prickly pear beer yet.

(22oz bottle, courtesy of mar) Pours a clear yellow body with a spare white head. Aroma of grass, earth, pear skin, and honey. Flavor of honey, melon, some pear, and earth.

bhensonb (11130) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bomber from Brewforia. Pours orange tinged gold with a foamy white head. Aroma has honey. Medium body with foamy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is light malt, fruit and a touch of honey. It is fruity into the finish - but this must be the cactus cause it is a very unusual fruit flavor. Overall it goes from mildly sweet to fairly balanced, and the flavor pallette is interesting. Actually makes me start thinking herbal mead.
