look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: pours into a snifter to a deep red almost light brown with a small off white head that fades to a small collar
S: smells of honey, cinnamon, and a little nutty with some lemon
T: tastes of cinnamon,very lemony with an almost tart citrus quality, a bit of honey but the lemon seems to dominate, slightly nutty as well. swallow is more lemon and a bit of a nutty finish
M: medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation slightly dry on the finish from the citrus
O: A very interesting beer, very lemony and almost one sided but not quit there. seems like it missed the mark but the other flavors might have faded. Pretty tasty for what it is but it takes a lot to dig past the lemon.

1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a snifter

A - It is a rosy orange color. I got about an inch of off white head. Once the head dissipates it looks like wine.

S - I smell some honey, cinnamon, and clove.

T - It reminds me of wine. It has some fruity and sour characteristics.

M - Moderate to thin. It has little carbonation making it go down smooth.

O - It is different. I believe this is only the second beer of this style that I have tried. It's a great change of pace.

Rich looking clear amber pour with almost no head. The nose is reminiscent of sweet white grapes with a touch of honey sweetness and flintstone vitamins (yes you read correctly). The taste is more potent with a forefront of tart white grapes/lemon, a slight nuttiness, and a honey finish. This beer is very well executed in my opinion boasting lots of fruit and spice, but lacks in the alcohol presence that I expected.

'12 batch, bottle 4/192

A: A murky rust-colored pour with a medium sized slightly off-white fizzy head. Halfway decent lacing is left behind as it fades slowly.

S: Lots of honey. Cloves from the belgian yeast. Lemon zest stands out loud and clear. Grapes too. Cinnamon is initially missing but comes out once it warms.

T: Sweet honey right up front. Bitter grape skin and lemon zest kicks in after that. Spices kick in towards the finish with the cinnamon and cloves. Finish is a mash-up of all the flavors. Honey and grape skin linger in the aftertaste. What a unique beer. Grapes are a bit overpowering unfortunately.

M: Medium bodied, smooth.

O: My first braggot. I'm not sure what to think. It's not quite a normal beer, not quite a mead. Lots of additional flavors thrown in which are quite well balanced and make for a roller coaster of tastes. I didn't get much in the way of walnuts but everything else was there in spades.

Supplied by Jeff, thanks! 3 oz. poured into a FFF Teku on June 8th, 2012.

A - Extraordinarily light-looking, reddish-amber coloring. Looks like a sour. No head but light white edgy film. Very few alcohol legs.

S - Belgian yeast, honey, sugar, lemon and other light fruit acidity.

T - My initial thought - "What the fuck?" No Joke. Very disjointed, sour, astringent, bizarre candied malts, honey coated almonds, and clove.

M - Light body, average carbonation, semi-dry aftertaste.

D - This was my first Braggot, so I have no clue if this is good representation of the style. Still though, this is truly and utterly bizarre. A bit drain pour worthy depending on your expectations.

A- Pours a bright orange color with a fairly thin white head. Head has ok retention and leaves pretty much no lacing at all. A bit of floaters in this one too.

S- Smell getting quite a bit of a mess. Nothing really jumping out at me as well. Getting a lot of sweetness must be from the honey. Not really picking up any of the cinnamon or walnuts.

T- A bit of tartness from the lemons. A mixture of spicesness but nothing really noticeable. A touch of clove and a strange sweetness.

M- Lighter side of medium and a fair amount of carbonation.

O- I'm not really caring for this one at all. Just not my type of thing. We couldn't finish the bottle.

Poured into a snifter. 2012 vintage, bottle #88 of 192.

3.0 A: Translucent orange amber color. A little over one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is a bit lacking, but a small ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Doesn't smell quite like baklava, but all the component are apparent. Loads of honey followed by cinnamon and walnuts followed by lemon zest and clove. Also a delicate pepperiness. Clean, relatively neutral maltiness.

3.0 T: The taste is not as well integrated as the nose. Honey is the strongest component, but it isn't "braggot strength." Cinnamon and walnuts take a bit of a back seat. The lemon zest and clove do well though. The culmination is a bit tangy, which I don't remember when I had it on-tap. It's not bad, but it's nothing special.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Could use a touch more carbonation. Light creaminess.

3.5 D: Decent, but I enjoy this a lot more fresh. It seems that I enjoy most JO's beers better on-tap.

pour is murky dark amber with off white head. The nose is sweet an much of honey. The cinnamon spice comes through a fair bit and the walnut. Taste is simple, honey, some in fermented sugar, decent spice to it. Full body, syrupy, strong carb with a sugary finish.

Was really excited to try this brew since Braggot's aren't usually that popular. This brew poured out as a nice looking amber color. The head was fizzy and white. The smell of the beer was a little different than expected, the lemon zest was in there for sure. I was hoping for more of a honey aroma. The taste of the beer was also not quite what I expected but it was still pretty good. The flavors of the lemon and spice worked well together. The mouthfeel of the beer had a good level of carbonation to it and was medium bodied. Overall this beer was pretty good, makes me want to check out Jackie-O's a little more.
