Great taste and unusual beer. Well worth drinking. Has a smooth sweet flavor with a slight fizz to the palate and a saffron long finish.

One of the ancient ales which makes it pretty cool on its own. Golden in color. Honey and grape flavors. Very pleasant enjoyable beer.

Sdaniel90 (282) - Mexico City, MEXICO - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. Pours a clear golden colour that’s quite transparent indeed with a practically non existant head. This one’s gonna be unique. Aroma is heavily spicy, not much else. Very earthy and musky, with subtle. Dry and straight up, with some fruit character and spiciness. Interesting brew.

Bottle - Part of their ancient ale series this one is interesting. I can taste the barley part of this beer but not much of the other ingredients it mentions are a part of this recipe. It is a little sweet from the honey but very subtle flavor. Funky flavor lingers on the tongue for a while. There is a reason this is an “ancient” beer.

Bottle. Dark clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma is lagerish with hints of grape and amaretto. Taste is honey, grape, almond and barley in the finish. Smooth medium mouthfeel with light carbonation. Sweet but tasty.

courious blend of ingredients, will drink warm next time, just like King Midas not over powering on the grapes

TXBadger (1219) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours a nice golden color. Wine like citrus notes on the nose. On the palate there is caramel, light fruit, and some cereal. Finishes dry.

Habanero (2441) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and fruity hops. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. An excellent Ale.

It smells like sparkling grape juice. Very soft. Grape is prominent while saffron lingers at the end. The high carbonation works well. I see why wine drinkers like it. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

12oz bottle into a DFH signature glass. Pours a golden amber with very little head. I wont go into the ’’ancient history" of the recipe of this ale since I wasn’t around when it was supposedly originated and wouldn’t have a clue on how to compare the two. The aroma is sweet and reminds me of some type of Belgium ale. The taste is also sweet with a hint of some spices(?) that don’t overwhelm the sweetness but does seem to diminish it a bit. This is a smooth beer and goes down easy. I think this is a really good ale and one for people that think Belgium’s are too sweet.. I’m glade its a year around beer and that hot summer days are on their way because I believe this will be a great summer beer.
