3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is Belgium like, kinda sweet and fruity. The color is a yellowish orange, clear with fully diminishing white head. The taste is a little sweet, bitter, sour then sweet again. The body is creamy and slightly fizzy. Not bad, but not as good as recommended.

Tap at WoB. Pours clear golden amber. Aroma is white grapes, pale malts, tropical and citrus fruit notes, and faint spice. Flavor is clean malt base, white wine notes, light fruit notes, and faint woodiness. Medium body.

Totally unusual aroma in a golden pour. Taste is similarly exotic - but eminently drinkable. That may be an issue (given the strength).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière d’une couleur dorée et profonde surmontée d’une mousse riche et blanche comme neige. Le liquide est imposant. On sent une présence autoritaire et affirmée. Au nez, la bière révèle de puissants arômes d’alcool et de raisin appuyés sur une douce base maltée et mielleuse. En bouche, ces ingrédients se présentent à moi de la même façon accompagnés de citron. Bière très lourde et pesante en bouche, à l’effervescence et durée moyennes. Difficile à boire pour moi.

Pours a clear dark gold with heavy white sediment. A sweet citrus, light malt, pine, and honey. A very sweet taste of honey, pine, citrus, and alcohol. A lingering sweet taste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Bottled 1/12/15. Clear orange golden color. Thin white head, kind of bubbly. Lots of fine particles suspended in the body. Some ropes of lace. Fades to a minimal ring, then virtually nothing. Honey comes through first, up front, some grape sweetness and bigger other earthy fruit (hawthorn fruit?). Definite rice type malt. Bready. Some orange citrus, strange yeast note. Bigger sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Significant sweet bite to it. Bigger body. Somewhat sharp, kind of soft, lighter kind of crisp carbonation. Sort of interesting up front, but honestly 1/4 of the way in it just ends up drinking like a malt liquor. A tasty, interesting malt liquor, that hides the 9% alcohol just as good as the Beer Thousand malt liquor did. Reminds me quite a lot of that beer actually. The eh part of all this, though is $12 for a 25oz’r? of (decent, but still) malt liquor? Started at 3.4.. dropped as I progressed. Definitely the most unimpressive Ancient Ale I’ve tried so far.

Draught @ Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Pours hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, dried fruits, alcohol, grapes and vinous. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long vinous, fruity and slightly warm finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Almost completely clear, light amber in color and with a minimal sized head. Sweet, fruity aroma with some herbs, honey and malts. Alcohol too. It’s dry and full bodied, warming and nicely carbonated, with flavors of honey, sweet fruits, plums, some herbs and a nice bitterness. Lasting finish. A bit too warming this one, else it’s both tasteful and interesting. 150621

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a little foamy white head. Aroma of grape, honey and alcohol, reminiscent of white wine. Decently carbonated with a spicy, crisp taste, finishes full but dry. Interesting, but not my favorite Dogfish Head offering.
