Yeasty, fruity aroma. Forms a thin head that lasts a few minutes. Sticky mouthfeel. Tastes of grapes, malt, honey, grain. Overall a decent beer and a departure from the usual offerings.

Nice, interesting reddish golden sour beer, with a good touch of wine. No mentionable head, but a healthy looking brew, perhaps from the saffron. Full of red berries and honey on the flavour. Sour and crisp. Very likeable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden with a thin bubbly head. Aromas of white grapes and honey with a little bit of malt in the nose. Flavor is sweet. Pale grapes and honey are prevalent along with a little bit of biscuit. Feels a little oily on the tongue and is very smooth. Overall a unique and refreshing drink. It is like a mead but there is a moscato character along with a classic ale-ishness. You should try it out.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out a beautiful glowing orange/yellow, with a ton of flaky pale floaties. I guess the floaties add character for DFH’s ancient ale series, so no points knocked off. Just a little bit of a white head. Huge yeast aromas with tons of honey. Tastes sweet, a tiny bit sour. Combined with the yeast it reminds me of a tasty sourdough loaf drizzled with honey. Some spicy notes as well. Lingering sweet aftertaste with very little bitterness anywhere. It has a thick and smooth mouthfeel, but the carbonation both looks and feels a little harsh. Overall a very interesting drink that barely shows its 9% abv. Who knows if people actually drank exactly this, but fun to imagine our ancient drunken ancestors.
