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!!

0,5 flaske fra Meny Borups alle København, på hytta nov-17: lett uklar gylden med flott skum som varer. Honning, blomster, urter, rug og engelsk appelsinmarmelade i aroma og smak. Fornemmer jeg noe farmhouse/saisonaktig i form av høy, gjær og krydder? Dejlig og let drikkelig, højt vitaminindhold til trods.

Bottle. My first braggot, I believe. Hazy copper with a medium sized diminishing white head with good lace and regeneration. Pleasant floral nose with honey, citrus and hay. The flavour has hay, wood, honey, dry flowers, minerals. Full body, warming alcohol, medium sweet and bitter. Warming finish with rye and honey. I am unsure about what to feel about this, but it is not all bad and the honey shows a lot.

Pinball (12329) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2017
bottle from boxbeers. hazy yellow, small white head. aroma of malts, honey, tea, a little bit of a herbal touch. flavor is malty, herbal, "bitter honey" if that makes any sense at all, faint sweet yellow fruits, like a belgian triple. flavor is somewhat confusing to me, i think it might resemble a strong belgian ale more than anything else i know about. Beer has lots of flavor, the alc. is quite well hidden, i had expected 5.6% or so when i tasted it, and was somewhat surprised to see it tagged as 9% here. In my world, that is a sign of good brewing craftmanship ( and interestingly confusing unexpected hangovers)
