On tap at the gaithersburg brewpub. Very interesting flavors--lots of spices, fruit and coriander. I found it overpoweringly sweet, though. An unbalanced body that I only wanted a bit of.

golden to light amber color; fruity aroma; fruity, spicy flavor; spicy up front with a grape aftertaste; a bit like a saison with grape notes; I might prefer it a bit less fruity

Bomber pours straw color with a nice wispy head. Smells of wine straight away, then honey. This is the Cerberus of beers: a three-headed giant hound - part beer, part wine, part something else - only not guarding the gates of the Underworld, but guarding everyone from a strict definition of beer. Overall, as a beer, it’s too winey, as a wine, it’s too beery, but as a newly formulated beverage it’s a pleasant creation.

Light body, mild flavor, high heat, spritzy, honeyed finish, avg length.
Sweet, mildly, no bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting beer and concept but not impressive in taste. A little thin due to the rice but a good warmth from the honey and a slight grape hinge.
