Dominated by Trifolium Melilotus (clover), this true monofloral honey deserves its own product category. The aroma begins vegetal and floral with hints of beeswax. The taste is immediately sweet and tropical with some batches having strong afternotes of mint. Tasting this batch of clover honey reminds one of sucking on a Life Saver. Vanilla and cinnamon in some batches are the result of coumarin in the plant tissue. Its low moisture level of < 17.4% combined with Cephalanthus (buttonbush) nectar create a buttery, heavy bodied texture.
A Pfund scale of 30mm makes it a“white” honey with a bright, marigold color. The full pollen reports and nectar analysis are pending.
