Bottle at the tap in Columbus ga. Aroma was mostly malt, alcohol, and a little wine/grape. Flavor was pretty tart, malt, alcohol; resembles a malt liquor flavor, but in a good way. Medium body. Strong co2. Interesting to say the least but for six bucks for 12 ounces, I wouldn’t buy it again.

Cloudy yellow in appearance. Aromas of white wine and some definite honey perfume. Taste wise it starts off a bit slow on the front of the tongue but finishes with a bang. You can definitely taste the saffron and the honey on the swallow with an definite hint of white wine and alcohol. Overall this is both light and refreshing but extremely complex.

Fromba bottle. Definite delicous factor, not overly heavy. Spicy. A little on the sweet side, but still relatively refreshing

Aromas of white wine, chardonnay-like, some honey. Clear gold, white head mostly fading. A little sweet, clings to the cheeks, savory, subtle apple.

Sweet, honey, coriander aromas. Spicy. Very velvety, smooth drinking. Obviously tastes honey and grapes, very sweet because of the muscat grapes.

On draft at the House of Brews in Gilbert. Lightly spiced nose of coriander, playful white grapes, some saffron, and a touch of honey and orange blossom. Clear gold color with a thin head. A flowery melange greets the taste buds before a prominent — and very sweet — Chardonnay tone takes over. Honeycomb and virgin oak flavors also make an appearance. Light body with a very dry finish. Overall, it’s simply too sweet and vinous for my liking.

Firstly I will say that DFH has sexy label art and that plays an important role for catching one’s eye in a sea full of craft bottles. I amn’t a techie and don’t have a phone so I can’t check ratings while browsing for brews. Stoked to see this Greek freak staring out at me. A stunning brilliant gold pour topped off with a bubbly white crown. Smell that saffron, honey and floral scent. Tastes the same but add some ancient dusty malts and some light hopping action. Tastes like sweet sanskrit and goes down smooth with light bubbles and a medium, somewhat syrupy bod.

Transfer from BA review on 2-27-12 - Poured from bottle into tulip shaped glass Appearance – Pours an orange-golden color with a little bit of haze. Upon pouring there is a very light white head. The head fades to give a moderate amount of lacing. Smell – The nose is heavy in grape aromas up front. There is the light biscuit smell mixed with a little bit of sweetness in the middle of the smell. At the end, some alcohol and a floral like aroma (hard to place) work their way in to round out the smell. Taste – There is a dry malty flavor up front. The grape flavor then comes more prominent and begins to overshadow the malt. There is a light bit of honey sweetness with the grape flavor; very light and subtle, yet compliments the grape quite nicely actually. Toward the end of the taste, just as was detected in the nose, the alcohol comes to the scene. The alcohol mixed with the grape leave a rather odd aftertaste in the mouth, not awful, but not the best either. Overall it had a taste like a kind of bready-white wine. Mouthfeel – The feel of the brew is quite nice. It is on the creamier side which allows it linger on the tongue. At the beginning of drinking the brew the carbonation level is a bit too high, but when left to sit for a bit, it diminished and created a lightly carbonated brew that when mixed with the thick body gave the tongue quite a nice experience. Overall –The feel of the beer was fantastic, but the taste was a bit unbalanced. In the beginning it tastes more like a beer that then seems to turn into a boozy wine. It has some very nice individual characteristics yet the transitions of them from one to another don’t really make for a “smooth” drinking experience.
