'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.
