Details

This is a one-of-a-kind, limited run honey from the artisanal apiarists at Ames Farm. Locally harvested, raw honey that is 50% pure buckwheat and 50% clover provides a unique mead base or a fantastic addition to many beer styles. The buckwheat contributes a rich, deep tone that is almost malty (due to a high content of methylbutanal, a key flavor component of caramel malts) but also has characteristic honey sweetness combined with with dark floral notes such as rose. The clover contributes bright floral notes with an almost citrusy tinge. Together they make a complex honey with a round, mellow finish. A natural choice for braggots or 1 lb additions to beers. We only have a small quantity of this honey, and once its gone it won't be coming back!

I have made a few melomels with this honey and they turned out wonderful. It has a much deeper richness than most honeys like a candi or a chocolate flavor. (Posted on 12/8/13)
An excellent choice! Review by Joe

I used this honey in a few gluten free beers I've made. It complements using roasted buckwheat as a steeping grain and also adds a nice malty taste that is hard to accomplish in a gluten free beer. With this, flaked GF oats, and some maltodextrin, the end result actually had mouth feel! Can't say the same for a few store bought GFB's. (Posted on 10/3/13)
