From Beer Valley's facebook page:

"Heavy Sugars Cherry Braggot is 7% abv. It was brewed with a blend of honey from 4 different beekeepers throughout Oregon, sweet and sour cherry puree's, and some barley malt. Technically it is 51% beer and 49% cherry mead but probably drinks more like mead than beer. Enjoy!"

Had this tonight while enjoying some brews with Inflatablechair and Jdense at Bitter Creek. Poured into a big pint glass.... Short lasting white head... the brew is clear orange with some definite red in it. Very pretty.

Nose is a nice mix of sorta funky honey and good cherry components...

Flavor is more fruit forward than honey or barley... the cherries really shine... and the honey reminds me of clover honey... not getting any real hoppiness... Has a mild sweetness that helps bloom the flavors... finishes sorta dry with a lingering cherry element.

Body is medium.... smooth with good carbonation. I would definitely drink this one again.

3.5/3.5/4/4/4
