COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a golden orange color with a rimmed white head. Aroma mostly honey with some pear and grain. Flavor is largely honey-very little pear and a bit of grain and alcohol finish. Not great. Expected better.

Drinkable only because of the honey sweetness. Honey and lager arroma. Slight yellw body, lacey. Baking soda in taste, light bodied, kiss of honey in every sip. Not great as a mead, and not as tasty as other braggots. Thanks Trevor.

Dorwart (2609) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Thin head of bright white bubbles. Light grape and pear aroma with some milk?, light grainy malts and a bit of cinnamon. Color is a clear golden orange. Very alcoholic flavor. Lots-o-hotness. Some more grape notes along with some honey and sweet malts. Very plesant flavor but is really damaged by the extreme alcohol presence. Finishes sweet but not overly sweet especially for a mead. I enjoyed this brew but it could have beena bit thicker and meatier to offset the high alcohol content.

Bottle @ home. There’s still a dozen of these at my secret liquor store in Northern Colorado. Golden yellow-orange appearance with a small white head. Sweet honey, light fruity, planty aroma. Quite sweet, honey, fruity, somewhat syrupy flavor. Pretty interesting but nothing too superb.

beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 24, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear burnished gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that fizzes away in about ten seconds. Pleasant aroma of honey, something fruity I don’t recognize which I assume is prickly pear, and a bit of caramel. Flavor is light sweet malt, honey, and again some fruit that I assume is prickly pear. Spritzy on the palate; would like this better on the palate if it were just a bit less carbonated.

Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 5, 2011
Bottle at Papsø’s - Thanks. Clear yellow - white head. Sweetness, honey, hay, straw, grainy, flowery, toasted, light pear, fruity, light hoppy. OK.

SpringsLicker (3677) - Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2011
Clear gold, very little head. Very little aroma. Lightly sweet but not much else. A bit of vinous fruit in the aftertaste.

faroeviking (11220) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - APR 2, 2011
Botella. Clear orange, no head. Sweet fruity vinious aroma. Good mouthfeel, sticky like. Sweet fruity honey alco flavour, the alc. is rather dominant.

pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2011
Aroma: Sweet--honey, apples, and something else. Prickly pear, I guess. Appearance: Cloudy orange-gold with no head what so ever. Taste: Heavy sweetness with a slight sourness at the end. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Ugh...tastes like cider gone bad, but super sweet. The honey is just too much here.
