A very nice surprise in the same vein as the midas touch. The taste reminds me of a nice sherry. its smooth fruity malts and the complex tastes of honey, sweet spices and tropical fruits. I really love this beer

Hazy, toasted brown-gold, stellar label, thin head. Yeasty, stone fruit, winey aroma. Tart, the bitterness wasnít entirely pleasant, somewhat homebrew-ish. Pretty sweet. Finishes off

Aroma was like a malt liquor. Very malty, and sort of sour smelling. Flavor was malty, bitter grape, earth. Interesting, but not great. As usual I give DFH props for always trying something different.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky orange, with a small off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of dry white wine, like a Sauvignon Blanc. Flavors of berries, white grapes, and all kinds of light fruits, as well as honey. Smooth medium body, dry finish. This is very different. I like it but I donít love it. Still, I get a kick out of trying these crazy concoctions Dogfish Head comes up with, even if I donít love the result.

Golden sunshine body and a bit cloudy. Lacing is somewhat thick, off white in color. Champagne-like bouquet. Taste resembles champagne. Flavors include fruit (apple, green grape), yeast and honey. Fairly dry finish.

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. Itís 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 itís 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 itís 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 doesnít 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 didnít like beer enjoyed it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
