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.

thegreenrooster (3295) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2004
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.

jtw (1110) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2004
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!

badgerben (4501) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Poured a wonderful yellow/golden color with a medium head. The aroma... what the hell is in this stuff? A weird combination of fruit and malt. Wonder how this will taste. *pause* Merciful crap! The people who buried the king knew what they were doing! The comercial description is dead on: barley, grapes, and honey. It seems many beers that have fruit in them attempt to hide the malt and other flavors. This one brings them all to the front. It’s not overbearing, but they are not faint flavors. It does taste like someone mixed beer, mead, and wine. I wouldn’t drink it all the time, but I would love to drink this in celebration. Awesome!

tomxcs (321) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Honey aroma, with wine and malts. At first, the taste is very mead-like but then much like wine. Overall very sweet. I tend to like weird brews and this is no exception.

Dorwart (2386) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Thins foam of bubbly carbonation. Reduces to almost nothing. Sweet fruity aroma with grapes and apples. Reminds me of a sparkling cider. Color is a nice golden orange. Flavor is a little thin, sweet, fruity and a nice alcohol kick. Very little malt to thicken it up. Almost no bitterness. This boarders on a mead I think. Finish is dry and tingly from the alcohol. Very easy drinking and thus very easy to get hammered with. Although, because of the price, not something that you will be drinking a lot of. A good but different "beer".

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2004 This beer may be the most unique beer I have ever drank. Light carbonation and hardley any head. The story of why this beer was made and why the ingredients were used is amazing. This beer has a strong grape flavor to it.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Nose of grapes predominates. Some honey, flowers and other fruits in there as well. Pours a honey amber in color. Nice off-white head is a bit short, but lasts for a long time. Has a distinct DFH sweet/alcohol taste to it (a good thing). Slightly cloying. It has a very grapey finish to it, but is well worth buying. Too strong and sweet to have more than one.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Clouded ambers and yellows, small white head. Nose is of honey, grapes, spice, and ending floral. Flavor is similar with additional rich notes of spiced white grapes, light caramel, and sort of an earthy floral finish. Medium to full bodied, syrupy, dry sweet finish. Definitely interesting (as most of DFH is) and worth a try.
