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.

growler. Clear golden mead. Sweet nose. Taste is just too fucking sweet for me, blah. Yea the fruit juice addition was original (props, who else is fucking w/ cactus juice?) but still lacked drinkability. I only bought it b/c I’d never had a "braggot" before... hmmm, maybe see: mead?

Gold color. Sweet up front, some honeyed notes, maybe a hint of the prickly pear. Ok I guess.

"here’s a big, thick brew for ya. smell is somewhat sweet with honey, fruit, a little alcohol, and malt. feel is thick, Fort-like if you will, but not quite to the extent of that beer. Flavor is reminiscent as well, though honey and a touch of spice dominate here. Not bad. Not sure if it’s worth the big price tag, but it was very nice to try."

Strong fruity aroma. Does not smell like beer. Pours with no head at all. Has what appears to be a chill haze. Certainly can taste the honey and fruit making this a very unique beer. However, it seems to be lacking in body.

2012.07.16 - 22oz bottle in snifter. Bottle marked MAR1110. Limited Release #2 Spring 2010. Pours mildly orange to light amber. Little to no head or carbonation. Nose is sweet, almost similar to ( or implies ) a barley wine or something like Raison D'Extra but much reduced. Taste is quite pleasant and surprising. The 10% abv is almost undetectable, just barely showing up in the back end as the taste fades. This is going down like a fruit drink. Taste is hard to describe but certainly seems like an interesting balance of pear and honey. Very drinkable, perhaps dangerously so for 10% abv.
