The BEST honey is right out of the burr comb, still warm!!!
The second best is when you get it in the bottle.
I still prefer the later summer honey(clover, knapweed) over the early summer honey (linden). You'll see. (and have to decide yourself what you like best)
PS my first bottle of honey was from goldenrod. Definiately not the best, unless you like dirty gym socks!!! I do remember it well, though.
