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.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
