3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample pour of hazed, light raspberry. Nose is lightly spiced with Belgian yeast and sweet red fruits... Flavor is lightly spiced as well, less than the nose, with a smooth fruitiness that lingers. Light to medium body with light lacing. Not bad, not spectacular.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear light brown with a light tan head. Aroma of grapes and musty malt. Taste is complex combination of grapes and cherries with a strong corn flavor in the lingering aftertaste. Carbonation is bright and mouthfeel is crisp. Worth a bomber or two.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper colored body with fizzy white head. Fruity, yeasty, bready aroma. Flavor is somewhat tart and acidic, some honey and caramel, dark fruit flesh and skin. Everything is so deeply thought out, just wish it came across in the beer itself. Not terribly complex...and honestly not that good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours copper/pomegranate. Nose is mostly pomegranate juice with some spice, florals and honey. Taste is more honey forward with pomegranate juice, raisin, off spices and a very harsh resin that seems out of place. Medium body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Gorgeous copper pour with a medium, fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy and peppery with herb notes, myrrh (only because it was mentioned did I think that it was that in the aroma), ripe fruits, and flowers. Taste is strong herbs, flowers, spices, honey, ripe fruit notes, soft caramel, toasted grains, and yeast notes. Body is medium and slightly sticky with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more spices, herbs, flowers, fruit notes, honey, caramel notes and soft tartness/tanginess. Rather unique and different.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber/orange with orange amber color with a small head but it hangs around. Aroma is estery, citrus, floral, honey sweetness. Floral is certainly unique with odd fruits, honey, earthiness, strong esters and foral notes. Medium body that finishes smooth with an active yet light carbonation. Booze is hidden. Quite complex but perhaps a bit to yeast forward for me. Still I continue to buy DFH brews due to the uniqueness and this one is surly that. That and I do like the labels.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours clear copper with a 3 finger creamy off-white head that fizzed away quickly. Aroma is primarily floral with honey notes. Med + body. Flavor is very different. It’s like floral, very floral, with some mixed resin, hazelnut and honey aspects. And it’s pretty bitter throughout. After reflection the pomegranate is detectable. I’m thinking bitter violets for an overall description. Perhaps more US brewers should get into gentian root. Extremely unique ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a clear copper with a white head that quickly fades without leaving lacing. The aroma is similar to a Belgian full of spice. The taste is very clean and smooth. It has the feel of a Belgian and it hides the 8.5% very well. There’s a bit of a strange sweetness in the middle of the beer which I assume is the pomegranate. It’s only fairly interesting for a DFH beer. Smooth but otherwise lackluster from what I come to expect from DFH.
