3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is very wine-like, similar to an un-oaked chardonnay, grapey with earthy undertones, subtle sweet malt aroma, pleasant floral notes. Hazy golden-yellow color, small white head, fair head retention. Grainy malt flavor, moderately sweet, mild honey and vinous notes linger in the aftertaste. Medium body with moderate carbonation, very drinkable. If I lived in China 9000 years ago Iíd be happy to drink this.

tastes like beer and grape juice mixed together....I love how they came up with their recipe(s)...I canít speak enough about how great that is... however, that doesnít mean it will actually taste very good and this one is a bit off the mark for me....quite sweet...malty...slightly better as you sip....but too sweet for me...the palate is where it loses most....sweet then slight sour beer...poor combo

A light sweetness in the aroma but the sweet juicyness is prevalent in the taste. A bit of wine notes in the finish, and although it feels like it was blended with juice, it?s fun to taste.

Honey raisin aroma. Hazy golden color with a good head. Wow, sweet! Honey taste right off the bat, malt and grapes. OK, not my style.

2011 vintage 750ml bottle poured into my Dogfish Head Snifter. Pours a clear orange color with a medium off white head that leaves decent lacing. Smells of honey, caramel, fruit, and a wine like vine like quality. Tastes of the same things. Mouthfeel is slick and thin with light lacing and a semi dry finish. Unique but sort of weird. The ingredients donít work that great together. One of my least favorite Dogfish Head beers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unique but not enough to save it. Mild honey and malt aroma. The color was also golden honey with a fizzy white head. There was a lot of sediment with this beer. Thick but not overly weighty palate. Carbonation was average. There are really no style characteristics to compare this to so I donít know if they got it right or not. The flavor took some getting used to and I donít think I ever acclimated. Strong honey sweetness hits you up front and lingers. Some grassy malts and citrus follow with some spice. One try is enough.

2010 vintage, 750 ml bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy amber with a finger of soapy white foam. Nose is white grape, oxidation, spices, and some citrus rind. Taste is the same. Sweet honey soaked grapes with spice and light but pleasant oxidation. Medium bodied and kind of syrupy. Overall itís probably a bit past itís prime but itís still decent enough.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is grapes, sweet fruits, yeast, honey. Flavor is very sweet, boozy, honey and has some light vineous characters in it. Some complexity gong on, but also some bland alcoholic sweetness going on. Oily mouthfeel, soft carbo. Long, cloying sweet aftertaste. Decent beer, but Iíve had way better from them.

Appearance of honey, smells winey/grapey. Tastes sweet, simple sugary but balanced with hops and fruit. Good.
