Description 

This beer is a Brandy Barrel Aged Braggot with Pear Juice.  The base beer is 51% Malted Barley, 49% Colorado Honey, making it the most honey forward style legally possible for a brewery to create.  We did a secondary fermentation with pear juice and aged it in Brandy barrels for 6 months.  Highly carbonated and needs kept cold and when opened, poured quickly into a glass to warm until serving temp is achieved.

Definition (Braggot) : An ancient medieval drink comprised of mead made with honey and barley malt. It typically uses 1/3 malted barley, but can have as much as 1/2. Can have hop bitterness in the recipe.

The beer poured a wonderful light golden straw color that was hazy and unfiltered with very little carbonation. The aroma had wonderful hints of honey and pear and no hops detected. The initial and overall flavor was wonderful -- more like a light mead.  Again, this is due to the light ratio of barley malt used in the recipe, anywhere from 1/3 to 1/2. I detected flavors of honey (obviously) and subtle pear juice in this braggot. It had a nice sweetness due to the honey and little hop bitterness that finished a little dry. The body and mouthfeel was light, with spritzy carbonation. Very nice and smooth finish with a slight sweetness and dryness. There's a little alcohol warmth in this braggot (13.5%)  ending with a nice slight burn in the finish. Wonderfully made!
