Michigan honey added during the boil contributes color and complexity but adds little sweetness to the beer as the sugars are broken down during fermentation. Look for whispers of apricot and nectarine on the palate, mixed with the floral aroma of the hops grown in northern Michigan.
Food Pairing: Chicken salad with apricot and almonds. Or, just try and nice slice of sourdough bread with a tasty spread. Brie or goat's cheese
