Midas Touch Golden Elixir is a beverage based on the residue found on the drinking vessels in King Midas’ tomb. Our recipe highlights the known ingredients of barley, white Muscat grapes, honey and saffron. Somehwere between a beer, wine and mead, this smooth, dry ale will please with Chardonnay or I.P.A. drinker alike.

Tastes a little like a sparkling mead. Sweet, somewhat spicy. Not sure what to compare it to. Worth a sample.

12 oz pour from 50 degree bottle into stemmed tulip glass. Moderate head that quickly dissipates. Strong carbonation. No lacing. Orange-yellow. Beautiful beer. Nose is subtle-- white grape, fruit. Taste is fascinating. A lot like a Chardonnay. A bit sweet, but not overwhelming. Distinct honey sweetness. Strong white grape taste with notable saffron. A bit dry. Moderately creamy mouthfeel. Very interesting beer overall. Unique.

Old rating. Bottle from old town. Pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aromas of grale, apple, herbs and cinnamon. Thin body like a lightly carbonated juice. Herbs and spice really stand out as it warms up to room temperature. Sweet on the palate with a dry sweet finish.

Couleur blonde-dorée avec un col blanc moyennement résistant. Aromes assez complexes de raisins, céréales, alcool, épices. C’est vineux, herbacé... Correct...

yourilevesque (124) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours apilsner-like golden beer. Head is thin but sticky to the glass. Lovely carbonation of tiny bublles rising from the bottom of the glass like an upside down gentle Christmas snow! Aromas: grapes mush, malt and honey, almost like a Pilsner (again) cranked with sugar. Nothing special there. Taste and mouthfeel: no hops, just grapes and sugar. Dry finish. Big lack of complexity in this beer.
