A cross between beer and a mead, Heliocentric Bragot revives an ancient tradition and proves that the Earth does revolve around the sun - sunflower honey, that is.

Beautiful amber color; high carbonation, nice thin perlage, big frothy head. The aroma immediately shows some sourness, confirmed by the flavor; the body is now thin, there is light caramel and very light liquorice, maybe a byproduct of the undesired fermentation. The bottle is not fresh, almost 2 years old, and it hasn’t kept up gracefully.

Bottled. A hazy light amber bragot with a beige head. The aroma is ssweet with strong notes of fruit as well as medium notes of malt, alcohol, and caramel, and a touch of oxidation. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, metal, alcohol, berries, and oxidation. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Hazy light golden pour with little head. The aroma is mostly sweet honey and some light malts as well. Honey dominant flavor, not overly sweet. Some underlying malt base is a bit bready I guess. Some fruitiness is present as well. Not bad, but I guess I found it to be rather uninteresting.

frankenkitty (2014) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Pours with low particulate in a honey-colored body under a fast, cream-colored head. Tart, yeasty aroma, mild sour milk, green leaves, and apple pie. Heavy in the mouth with a carbonated lift and a long spicy linger. Mild astringence after in the mouth, mild acids in the gut. Flavor is well spiced and is dominated by a tart fruitiness... green apple, green grape and raspberry. Sadly, its honeyed hue was the only essence of honey witnessed in a beer which I expected to be rather mead-like. It’s even listed here as a mead, isn’t it? Weird, because the label reads ’’Ale Brewed with Honey’’. I’d call this a Spice/Herb/Vegetable.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle; last rating in VA. Poured a clear, slightly toasted gold. Smallish off white head. Aroma of alcohol, honey and fruit; sweet. Flavor was more mellow than I thought. Apples, honey and fruit predominantly with some breadiness. ONly marginally sweet. Wasn’t bad, but wasn’t very tasty.

ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2008
Tasted at the Carolina Crew gathering, Greenville NC - thanks to Todd for sharing! Gold pour fluffy white head, and excellent lace. Alcoholic nose. Honey and fruit (mostly apple) dominate the flavor

TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Tasted at the Carolina Crew gathering, Greenville - thanks to ucusty for sharing! Pours a clear orange with a nice white lace. Nose is paint thinner and honey, but mainly the former. Flavor is much better than the nose, but is very bland with a bit of honey. Meh.
