Did not know what to expect with this one. I just had to guess at the braggot designation due to the "double honey" appellation in the name.

This beer was a nice, clear yellow with a large head (5 fingers at first) that subsided slowly, rocky at first and then a thin layer that persisted.

Aroma was fruity, with apples and pears almost reminiscent of a hard cider. But there was some floral character, a mild sweetness, and traces of honey amidst some mild spiciness.

Taste was almost reminiscent of a saison or a bière de garde. Somewhat grassy, crisp, and with a mild spiciness. A little astringent but very bready.

Mouthfeel was impressively dry. This beer was well carbonated and it was a good mix.

Overall this hides its 8.5% exceptionally well. Not a bad brew at all.
