"We brewed this one for you, to sip and savor, as you reflect during the long Berkshire winter. Rick from Bear Meadow Apiary supplied us with 60 lbs. of honey out of his hives on Dave's Melon Farm here in Pittsfield. The sweet melon notes lent by this local honey are reminiscent of summer fun. Sweet and malty with strong alcohol undertones and moderate hop bitterness. German malt, American and English hops." From the brewer.

An interesting beer due to the prominace of honey. Very nicely balanced, tends to lean more on the malty side rather than the hops side. Very solid offering, at 11.2%, it went down too easily.
