4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice cloudy golden hue with a head only large enough to say "I have a head." Smells strong and wonderful, very complex. Some apples, pears, honey; very herbal. Taste is pretty sweet, but not absurdly so, honey and molasses-like. Gets a bit tangier as the fruit and flowery flavors kick in. Yeast is noticable in the second and cloudier glass, which drys out the finish, rounds out the fruity flavors, and enhances the beers texture. It’s bit meadlike and has a number of similarities to Midas Touch, but this is more complex. Medium body to this, in my opinion. I found this to be pretty good and I have a hard time wondering why it’s rated lower than Midas Touch.

Had a taste of this at a local bottle shop. Had a deep straw yellow color with a almost non existent whispy white head. Honey smell, but also yeasty. Taste was overpowering, yeasty, fruity and thick. Thick in the mouth and honestly, a little tough to drink. I was unimpressed and I doubt someone could drink an entire 750ml bottle of this, which is how it’s packaged.

A bright apple, papaya, melon, aroma, and you can really smell the honey, taste comes out apple, honey with a grape and papya aftertaste, initialy sweet but it drys out quickly, Pleasant enough, but the mix doesn’t completely blend, almost like your buddies wopatouie

Tap at the Alehouse in Gaithersburg. Pour was a very cloudy yellow. Very sweet and fruity aroma. Taste of citrus and berry. Very drinkable, even my friends that didn’t like beer enjoyed it.

Murky golden color out of the bottle with a thin white head. There was a sweet berry nose that Sammy told me was what hawthorn smells like. Sweet/tart taste with strawberry, apricot and a mostly tangerine citrus. I also got lots of hair spray from the alcohol. Interesting historically, I guess, but really just a so-so fruit beer to me.

Murky yellow/light orange body with a quarter inch of offwhite head. Smells sweet, citrusy, grapey and floral. Tastes fruity, floral, honey-ish, ricey... Medium bodied. Very complex. Actually rather pleasant and drinkable. I may very well get this one again. Kudos once again, DFH!

Bottle. Pours a very hazy golden yellow. Aroma of sweet fruits and floral. Taste is very creamy with fresh tropical fruits, floral, and honey. I liked this a lot when it was cold, but as I let it warm it got very sticky and sweet and I liked it a bit less.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_One. Pours hazy orange\gold with no head. The aroma of fruit, honey, citrus, and yeast. The flavor is slightly sour, rice, yeast, fruit. Ok body, alcohol is very subtle.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle pours cloudy amber wtiha short white head that faded back pretty quick.. Aromas of honey, grape, and some sour citrus. Flavor is quite complex.. Some lemon, honey, lots of grape, some yeast.. Oddly funky but complex and intriguing.. Palate is quite mead-like in my opinion.. Honey seems to dominate this brew and you are left with a somewhat sweet finish. Seems to be a battle between sour grapes and honey throughout the brew... Interesting though and I give DFH all the props for trying something this unique..

Thanks to KAME for this brew.
It has an interesting flavor: it starts out light and fruity yet finishes with a nice soft ginger touch. Golden in color. I thought it was pretty nice
