3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Smells of honey, cherries, and white raisins. Pours golden with a large, white, billowy head. Tastes of honey, grapes, white raisins, cherries, and raspberries. Some alcohol warmth, medium carbonation. Truly delicious beer.

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.

Nice light pour, very sweet. Honey and maybe bread taste throughout. Very light, complex in its own way. Not good not bad, average.

Bottle from the source - pours clear, dark orange. It’s solid but funky in a non-barnyard way.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 Clear orange pour some head. Smells of cinnamon, tart dry fruit goji berries, grapes and honey. Taste is pretty ridiculously sweet and honeyed. This is definitely halfway to mead with slight grapey flavors. A slight bitterness out of nowhere with some medicinal flavors. It hides the strong alcohol well and has some dryness to the finish. Also comes with a pleasing silky mouthfeel with assertive bubbles.
