Exit 3, Blueberry Braggot, Flying Fish Brewing Company, Somerville, NJ

Braggot is defined as a mead brewed with fruit. In this case, Flying Fish’s brewers combined New Jersey honey with blueberries grown in Hammonton, NJ. This combination was fermented with Belgian strain of yeast, to give those characteristic esters found in your classic Belgian ales. My wife and I were able to try the standard version and one aged on orange, lemon peel, and whole blueberries when we visited the brewery for the official release of Exit 3. The standard Exit 3 was as crisp and drinkable as a 15% abc beverage can be. There was a nice blueberry tanginess which teamed with the moderate carbonation to clear away the sweetness that one expects when drinking what is essentially a sweet mead. The special version was much more complex, but the citrus flavors overshadowed the blueberries. The aged version was akin to a fruit salad where the standard is like a blueberry tart. I enjoyed both, but I choose the tart over the fruit salad.

    Honestly, until I read your post,, I had no interest in this one. I look forward to trying it now…still not sure if I’ll like it, but I’m definitely going to try a taste, thanks Abdillhomebrew

      I would plan on trying this one as an after dinner/ dessert drink. That may be the best time to enjoy this kind of beverage, if you aren’t a mead aficionado.
