Thick, almost syrupy. Qiute sweet, grape/wine character evident. Different and worth a try but not a standout.

A very nice old school ale. Definitely taste a little grape and a little honey. More like a mead methinks. Very unique and different.

Here is an interesting beer! Loads of honey in the aroma. The flavour is dominated by the sweet honey, but also caramel and somewhat fresh and sourish. Very interesting. Thanx Nat&Jim

Golden Honey Coloring. Good Head. Fruity. Had Malt....hard to know what the hell this was....but then it’s wine, mead and beer in one! You can taste the grapes, the sweetness of the mead and the malt A surprising balance. A favorite! Almost like being at Midas’ funeral!! Good things happen when people die!

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2005 2004 12 oz bottle. Finally I get to try one of these! Pours a thick, syrupy looking light gold/copper/amber mix with a strong creamy white head. Smells of saffron, honey, alcohol and some dry vinous notes (the grapes). Flavor is strong and full of honey. Begins sweet, powerful and full bodied. The alcohol and grapes come on halfway through taking away some of the sweetness, but certainly not dulling the flavor. Very warming, strong and IMO, good. Gets more smooth as it breathes and finishes with a herbal spiciness and hints of grapes and alcohol. Man am I a sucker for traditional ales.

Very Sweet. Too Sweet. This was practically undrinkable. Honey, malt, warming alcohol, and spice. All completely overwhelmed with the sweetness. I couldn’t finish the glass.

Bottle. Very sweet. HOney, starchy oatmeal. Quite malty and uncomplex. Honeyed and sweet, fairly thick mouthfeel, a bit sticky. Not really my style. Motelpogo likened it a Beez Neez dopplebock, i have to agree.

Pours cloudy yellow with a nice head. Aroma is grapes. Flavor is winey,honey and malt. Very smooth and very sweet. Alcohol is hidden well for such a strong brew. Very unique and different.

fizzy golden color (makes sense i guess) with a medium head. smells strangely musty, with a definite hint of winey grapes. surprisingly hoppy and a old-tasting malt backbone makes it pretty complex--lots of dark fruit flavors swirling around. very dry finish, slightly alcoholic. very good!
