A: The beer is mahogany in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops, Muscat grapes and wildflower honey are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste starts off with flavors of wildflower from the honey and also has notes of Muscat grapes and hints of toasted malts. Neither sweetness nor alcohol is perceptible in the taste.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This braggot had a really nice balance between the honey and the malts as you get the wildflower aromas and flavors from the honey without the sweetness and thickness that usually accompanies the ingredient. While I don’t get any alcohol in the taste, this is more of a sipping beer.

I had this on tap at Pour in Lancaster, served chilled in a goblet.

The color is murky dark brown with tranlucent clarity and thick tan head. The smell has a strong honey aroma with moderately toasted malt and light caramel sweetness almost toffe-like in the nose. The feel is full on the palate with very toasted flavor with honey sweet edge and medium carbonation with semi-dry finish -very gentle considering the strength.

The flavor is well rounded with caramel intensity and mineral fruity yeast which bring dates or nuts to mind with a subtle hint of grape in the background from yeast or honey with spiced elements adding to the complexity and mild toasted dry flavor in the finish. Overall this is a really solid braggot, possibly one of the best I have ever tasted.
