Golden amber pour with a small white head. Aromas of fruit and honey. Big sweet flavor with the grape shining through predominantly and the honey sweetness present as well. Very interesting beverage and pretty tasty too.

Clear gold with a delicate white bubbly head, decent retention and moderate lace. Berry aromas blended with white grape with hints of strawberry, honey and peach. Honey sweetness, white grape vinousness and light fruits. Light to medium body, generous carbonation and a medium sweet finish. Aftertaste of berries, honey and a touch of peach.
M: A medium-full bodied beer with moderate carbonation that has some of that weight that honey brings.
O: A fruity and slightly spice sort of a braggot with a good amount of honey character.

At brewery tasting. Light orange color. Some burnt sugar and yeast on the nose. Taste of brown sugar and honey, very syrupy. Couldn't imagine drinking a whole bottle, but enjoyable in this small quantity.

Pours a clear orange gold with a bit of white head that dissipates slowly and a bit of fine visible carbonation. Smell is somewhat sweet with brown sugar and a slight flowery note, essentially it smells like good honey. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is quite sweet, you get a whole lot of honey, and not much else, though there is a slight rice hint in the aftertaste. It’s ok, not great, not bad.

Not 1 of my favorite DFH’s but it’s still pretty good! Quite hoppy but has a creamy mouthfeel. Phenomenal by most standards but just not quite my style.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a mostly transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells mildly sweet with light skunkiness and fruitiness. Tastes like it smells, only better and more fruity. Good on the palate. An interesting brew.
