UPDATED: FEB 17, 2004 I have no idea why this is a traditional ale. It's a fine experimental/historic beer/drink. It has the look of a mead, with just the briefest glimpse of a head, but it's not a mead. Some sweetness and very little carbonation. Totally different kind of beer. I enjoyed it and I'd have another, but it's not your typical beer.

like the immort, syrupy and high alcohol but without the hops. don't taste much of the special stuff. liquory, possible in small doses, but i don't think that pleasurable. average and missable

The pour is a pale golden color. Aroma had the character of orange and other sweet fruit, which hinted of the sweetness that was to come. The initial sensation noticed on the first sip was the honey, also some faint raisin flavor. As it warmed up a very subtle alcohol taste emerged along with a hint of carmel malts. The feel in the mouth was deep and rich throughout. More breweries should be as experimental as Dogfish head.

12oz. bottle: This one poured a dark golden color, with just a hint of haze to it. There was absolutely no head to it at all, and I even tried halfway through the pour to make one. The aroma is sweet and a bit spicy. Possibly floral and grape notes also. The taste is fairly sweet and almost a little syrupy. Definite grapes and honey in there. The sweetness lingers a bit in your mouth. Very interesting, and very good! I love it when these guys push the envelope!

If you like a meade here is something close...well, sort of close. Lots of peach flavors with a sweet edge.Spicy and alittle alcoholic. However I like it!

Malt, yeast, citrus aromas, opague golden/amber, small, firm, vanilla custard head, yards of lace. Flavours are yeast, malt, pear and grapefruit. Completely balanced, fabulous mouthfeel. Ambrosia, thy name is Midas!

Looks a bit like apple juice. The head clears out almost immediately. Very tasty, though. Kind of reminds me a bit of those juice twisters with apple and white grape. Slight yeasty taste on the back of my tongue. Pretty good. I wouldn't have expected anything less from d.f.

Inspired by ancient residue? Who cares. This is another DFH winner. Deep amber under a fleeting off-white head. Aroma was fruity and sweet and spicy. The flavor was a delicious blend of sweet and spicy and fruity. DFH pushes the envelop and does so successfully. This is a winner.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2004 Hazy gold color with smallish head. Taste is light and smooth with the described Muscat grapes and honey. I couldn't taste the saffron anywhere. How isn't this a Fruit beer? Oh yeah, DaSilky pissed his pants last night at O'Briens.
