3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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

Bottle. Poured hazy amber with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Heavy sweet citrus flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Sweet after dinner beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml Bottle. Had a sour, honey and fruit aroma. Hazy peach body with white fizzy head that went flat quick. Flavor of honey, grape carbinated drink and mild to medium sourness. Good carbinated belch on the finish. Have had some beers with honey in them and they were malted sicky honey that wasn’t good for the palate. This one with honey noticable and much easier to drink.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small white head that fades quickly, no lace. Hazy gold appearence. Appears to be dead and lifeless. Lightly spicey, fruity nose. Maybe a hint vinous? Light yeastiness as well. Body is lightly medium with an unnecessary coating feeling. Honey flavors are the only ones i can really be sure about though the grapes seem to be available also. Whatever else is in there just does,nt work. Fairly sweet finish. Mannn, DFH, got some good ones, got some bad ones. This is one of the bad ones. Did,nt know the Chinese were grape growers either. What a history lesson this was.
