But we have had a great spring with hawthorn and trees in bloom.

I know the national honey monitoring does pollen analysis but what about finding out what generated this great taste ?

You can do this from pollen dna. You just have to apply a pollen coefficient. Large pollen grains are filtered out of the honey by the bees so are underrepresented, small grains are not and are over represented.
