COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Rye Braggot

English: One great thing about the craft beer world is how erratic it can be. To be completely honest, until just recently we had never even heard of Hermit Thrush Brewery – simply pronouncing their name proved a major challenge for most of us! But one day – out of the blue – we received an email from Joan Bulzacchelli and Victoria Banerjee from the brewing crew at Hermit Thrush, asking if they could join in on a brewing day at Amager since they were travelling Europe – half in private, half to visit breweries. As we only have the deepest respect for Vermont breweries we suggested turning the brewing day into an actual collaboration day, and a recipe was developed via email with one of the brewery’s masterminds Christophe Gagne. Bees For My Honey is a tribute to a product that is local to both breweries, a wonderful product that we both hold in high regard: honey! And it’s also a tribute to those wonderful buzzing little aviators called the honey bees. A friendly lil creature we have been taking for granted for way too long, only to realize that they seem to be abandoning us in recent years. We can’t blame them, but when honey becomes a scarce product, it may be too late to invite them back, because they just may have found a safer haven without pesticides and pollution. Save the bees – we need ‘em!!

Próbka wypita na One More Beer Festival. Piana coś tam zdobi szkło. W aromacie trochę jak utleniona DIPA - trochę miodu, jakieś tam przejrzałe cytrusy. W smaku przeciętne, dosć mało słodyczy jak na rye braggot, dalej trochę owocowo, jakieś grejpfruty. Średniak.

martjoobolut (4814) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2017
Bottle (from UJH). Pours amber with whiteish head. Aroma is sweet, esthers, fruits. Flavor is sweet and bitter, citrus, fruits, floral notes. Covers alcohol well. Overall: ok.

3.5
TBone (17773) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2017
Hazy orange colour, small steady white head and lace. A bit plasticky, grapey, fruity aroma. Medium-bodied. Suprisingly not honey sweet at all but dominant Belgian type yeastyness - some alcohol, hops and white pepper. Rye is not so evident either but gives some rough edge here. Lingering spiceyness and warming finish.

murzyn (373) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 2, 2017
Barwa lekko bursztynowa, piana biała całkiem spora. Aromat chmielowy, miodowy i zbożowy. Dość delikatny. W smaku słodkie, trochę miodowe z lekką trawiastą goryczką. Spoko pifko.

thewolf (12705) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2017
Bottle. Pours murky dark yellow with a small, staying creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, citrus hops, honey, citrus, oranges. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has honey, vinious, berries, light astringency, no sign of the alcohol. Quite surprisingly good.
