On draft at the Small Bar in San Diego, CA. I am loving all the Craftman's brews I can find.
It looks like a golden honey brew, clear with a fluff of white head.
Sweetish smell and taste, with interesting spiciness, something like anise, pepper, and cinnamon, an intriguing combination. It's a sipper but has a bold and nicely balanced finish, with sweetness but not too much, can't tell if it's hops that balance this or just the brewers doing what they do. A nice after dinner drink, wouldn't call it refreshing, but a sipper with a nice chocolate desert.
Well made and nicely done.

A- hazy yellow color, little retention. Looks like a Belgian wit with a bolder yellow color.
S- really fruity and sweet nose. A lot of citrus in the nose. Grapefruit, lemon, and a little blood orange.
T- sweet like a cider but nice citrus that ties into the hops. Doesn't have too much honey character, which I like. Very refreshing beer.
M- med to med heavy. The honey def gives it some body. A little carbonation that tickles on the palate when agitated.
O- really nice braggot, easily the best one I've had.

On-tap at the Beachwood BBQ,
A: Pours goldenrod with a finger of white head which leaves some nice lace.
S: Honey, interesting coconut, wildflowers.
T: Definite meady character, but not overt ala Bootlegger's Spring Ale. Nice malt flavour with some nectarine/stone fruit, again honeysuckle/wildflowers.
M: Medium-bodied, has a smoothness from the honey, very easy drinking.
D: I love Braggot so I immediately ordered this beer when I saw it on-tap. It's nice that so many local brewers are experimenting with honey beers. More on the beer side than most of the braggots I've had, I love both genres. Springtime puts it perfectly, hard to imagine drinking this at any other time, a great beer for late spring.

Aroma is flowery with slight phenols.
Pours golden yellow with large bright white head, leaves large lacing.
Flavor is like a Belgian mead blend, flowery honey with light phenols leaves a light sweet flavor behind, leaves the mouth sweet.
Really enjoying this, well blended and really leaves pleasant flavors in the mouth, will have to get another.
