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!!

Aromat: trochę słodowy, trochę chmielowy, jak w jakimś mocnym lagerze, trochę miodu. Żytni, miodowy lager. Wygląd: zmętniony, matowy bursztyn, niezbyt przejrzyste, bardzo wysoka, grubopęcherzykowa, biała piana, chwilkę się utrzymuje. Smak: dziwne to piwo, baza słodowa trochę jak w sahti, jest żyto w bazie słodowej bardzo wyraźne. Nie jest jakoś specjalnie słodkie, słodycz bardziej słodowa i zbożowa niż miodowa, miód jest bardziej jako taki cierpki miód pitny, nachmielenie niezłe, jest ziołowa goryczka, chwilkę zalega, alkohol ukryty mimo swej mocy. Kojarzy mi się trochę z niezbyt szlachetnymi lagerami mózgotrzepami, choć to oczywiście jest dużo bardziej wykwintne i lepiej wykonane. Nie jest mdłe, i nie jest zbyt zamulające, choć oczywiście konsystencja gęsta i kisielowa od żyta i miodu, no i sporo słodyczy też jest. Nie tego się spodziewałem w sumie, jak na razie to moje najsłabsze piwo od Amagera, piwo trochę dziwne jak dla mnie, nietypowe, ale wypić się jak najbardziej da. W miarę picia coraz bardziej mi smakowało, pełne, bogate, ciekawe, smaczne. 6/4/7/4/14

50 cl. bottle at home. High fluffy white long lasting head. Hazy dark amber body. Sweet and hard to describe mild fruity aroma. Acidic sweet oranges honey dominated flavor with a nice dry and astonishingly mild but fair hops bitterness. High carbonation. Long dry finish.

Tap (Beerfox, Riga). Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Honey, malty, straw, sweet and some booze in aroma. Straw, sweet, honey, grainy and bready in taste. Honey and bready in aftertaste. Kind of covers alcohol, but not really. Drinkable brew.

Orange, moderately hazy, grassy, herbal and floral. Taste is candy-like sweet all over the time, too sweet. In overall not my story.

Some orange, malt, heavy on honey and alcohol, unfortunately an unbalanced beer.

ogniskowicz (978) - POLAND - JUL 26, 2017
W aromacie dosc szorstki miód, odrobina wsiowych klimatów znanych z amerykanskich saisonów, chmiel. W smaku podobnie, zaskakuje wytrawnosc, nie ma tutaj slodyczy, jest troche fenoli, odrobina funky i szorstka, mocna goryczka. Ciekawe piwo, nie powiem, aczkolwiek jedno wystarczy.
