Fruity aroma, nice fruity flavor with some malt sweetness. The alcohol was hidden and you could not tell that it was as high as it is. This beer tastes as they describe it and maybe that was the way it was originaly made. I myself would like to see some hop bitterness to balance the sweetness.

jgb9348 (4488) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Crystal clear light amber colour with a nice-sized off-white head. Aroma similar to a cider, strong honey, apricots, raspberries and a lot of sugar. Medium-bodied; Very sweet taste with honey and a bit of grassy floral quality. Aftertaste clean, but somewhat sweet from honey. Overall, nice to try, right before going out to the Brewpub for the first time! I bought this 75 cL cork-finished bottle at Norm's in Vienna, Virginia and sampled it out in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware on 27-December-2003.

On tap at the Brew Pub. Nice golden color. Sweet aroma. Grapes?? Some honey as well. Very nice brew! Certainly worth having on tap if you make it to Delaware!

Deep golden. Honey aroma. Sweet and spicy flavour with a sour touch. Thanks Nathalie and Jim.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2003
A very nice traditional ale. Beautiful golden color. Blend of grape, honey, and (as advertised) saffron. Quite nice really to have a beer that is exactly as advertised.

Didn't like this as much as I thought. Something didn't quite belong in there. Maybe the saffron? I don't know - maybe I'm just not a big fan of the style.

(Bottle) Thin, quick dissipating, white head and a orange, carbonated body. Horseblanket and cask nose. Honey and whiskey with vegetable flavour. Good.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2008 Pours hazy copper-orange with 1.5 cm white head that quickly vanishes. Aroma is sweet and yeastly. Can really smell the honey. Sort of smells like chocolate milk, too. Wow-this is good. Start is very sweet of honey, but not cloying. This gives way to some maltiness, only to finish sweet to lure you back. This beer is very sweet, and I probably wouldnt be able to have more than 2 at a time. Hides 9% beautifully.----re-rate 5/2/08----Aroma is sweet, floral, herbal with some yeast esters. Light banana. Appearance is still the same as initial rating. A little spiciness to start, before it becomes a bit sweet and rather malty and quite chewy with the grainy maltiness. More sweet flavors to finish with a touch of ethanol. Unique, not too bad. The re-rate decreased the aroma from an 8 to a 7 and the overall from a 16 to a 15.

Not yet sure after 2 or 3 of them if this is good beer, bad wine, or a cheap trick, but I will admit that I do enjoy it. Beautiful golden color. Nose of honey, taste of honey and sweet grapes. I would have liked a bit more hoppy bite, actually any hoppy bite would have been good, but still easy enough to drink with Thanksgiving dinner. A tad too easy, given its high alcohol content.

Pale gold adn fizzy like champagne. Sweet grape aroma. Flavors are sweet--you can taste the grapes and honey, but there are hops in there as well. Not something for everyday, but it went well with our Thanksgiving turkey.
