Sourwood with a touch of Aster?
I've waited too long to pull supers from the late summer sourwood flow. After the best spring flow in my beekeeping history I can't complain about the less bountiful summer, but what I've ended up with is many supers partially filled with predominantly sourwood which now, I'm guessing from the smell of things, have been filled out with aster and goldenrod.
I've always heard the the aster and goldenrod was the bees' honey to store after we'd made off with the sourwood, never heard much about its flavor.
We run double deeps and winter stores are very good, so pulling these supers wouldn't be detrimental to the ladies. OK, all you honey connoisseurs - if we extracted this now would it be tasty? Smelly? Any wisdom to offer?
Flying by the seat of my pants.
