3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
25 jan 2013, bottle. Light copper, clear, no bubbles. Nose is cloves, grape kook-aid, sweet malt. Odd. Ned body and fizzy. White grape, maybe pomegranates, slightly tart notes, a bit estery. Reminds me of another DFH ancient ale but I can't remember which. The more I drink the more I can deal with it. But it was quite odd at first.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft: Okay...I stole a few sips of this from my friend...the head had dissipated by the time I sampled it but the beer was deep golden and fairly clear.
The nose really took me by surprise. At first I was overwhelmed a bit by the malty-yeastiness but as I took it in...lots of honey and clover. Interesting spicy notes I can’t quite describe. Would love to try again (and not after a Bitches Brew and Olde School)
Medium body and light carbonation. Felt smooth. One of the most unique beer tasting experiences I have had in awhile.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another odd experience. Pours clear copper with good lacing. Smells a bit like hefeweizen yeast. Light carbonation, medium consistency. Has an overall feel of a hefe with random extras. Honey present but not hugely. Taste has light sourness. Bottle at tasting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of myrrh, flowers and perfume... Caramel orange in color... Flavor is wild, like a Belgian blond with pomegranate prevalent, and perfume on the palate... Interesting, worth one try...

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a deep coppery amber with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of Juicy Fruit gum, pomegranate fruit, cloves and light banana. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, spice, honey, pomeganate, raisin and hazelnuts. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, hazelnut, honey, spice and light fruittiness with a crisp lingering hazelnut finishg. Just plain strange tasting beer! Sam Quit jacking around with your weird vacations and just brew some tasty beers I know you’re capable of!
