Bottle. Pour hazy gold with thin off-white head. Aroma is strongly of alcohol, lemon/lime and green grapes. Smells like wine or champagne. Taste is STRONGLY of alcohol. There are some green grapes and lemon present in taste too. A bit of a dry, bitter vinegar finish. A unique beer but not one I’d really want again.

Nice pour from the bottle with a beautiful deep yellow appearence. Sweet but deceiving smell with honey being the primary smell. The first taste is a decent taste with the alcohol hidden well within. Decent brew but definatley not an everyday drink

growler (74) - West Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Wow!! I’ve had stronger ales, barley wines, and such but this one certainly has a kick. The alcohol in this one definately comes through. Pours a deep gold with a lasting white head. Strange smell when first poured, sort of like a spicey fruit smell. Sweet, honey like flavor with a deep warming effect from the 9% ABV. Easy to pick out the grapes in this one. The first Dogfish Head that I haven’t flipped over. If all ancient ales were of this nature, I’d have drank a lot less beer had I lived in those times. Drinkable and certainly worth trying, but not for me.

Bottle courtesy of BuckNaked. Description is right on for this brew. Golden ale with no head. Aroma is all over the place. White wine with some spices even a little skunk. Initial taste is very sweet honey that fades fast and finishes very dry. Little alcohol in the finish also. Can see how alot of people like this, but just isn’t my style.

80skid (65) - New York, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Smells like a glorified bud and pours a moderate, thick, off-white head that lasts. Hints of grapes and a honey-like flavor dominate with definite hints of alcohol. Strong and complex as the flavor stays in your mouth for quite some time.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Nice golden amber, thin soapy white head. Sugared grassy hops greet the nose, along with musty honey and grapes. Easy going powerful and complex flavor. Sweet, yet bitter herbal/flowery hops. Slightly coating mouthfeel, well masked alcohol, though I get occaisional grainy alcohol hints. Good stuff!

Poured an orange color. Aromas of honey, white wine, apples, and alcohol. Flavor was sweet and of honey and fruit with some spice that I would guess to be the saffron but could also be from the honey. This was sweet and full bodied. Semi dry finish.

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2005
This was pleasant, but not really to my liking, to be honest. I’ve never really been a fan of meads and the like, and that’s what the Midas Touch really reminds me of. This is not to say it’s bad, and quite the contrary, just not to my tastes. It has an interesting variety of flavours, the most notable being saffron, which, to my lights, is not a flavour suited to beer. A good attempt, though.

Ungstrup (33417) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, sirup, as well as hops.
