3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz ibottle from sister in law nto a boulevard stemmed belgian glass, pours a light gold, honey yellow with a medium head, not frothy, but compact and hovers on the edges of the glass nicely. Aroma is grapes, wine charateristics are proven adequate, boozy honey, golden ghrams, celery, musky malt, musk rat suzy, har har, faint orange, then the boozy honey finishes. Taste is sweet, dry, and comforting, as its not too bitter at all, the sweetness complements the wine action going on, but the medium body carbination of the brew brings it all back home. Flavor is appealing in the sense of all that is brougth together in this mixuture stands out on their own, and wow, does this look nice in a glass. Mouthfeel is dry and full flavored. Refreshing yet unique, like the brewery.

Pours a golden yellow color with a grape aroma. Taste is clean and simple until after the swallow. A slight alcohol aftertaste once you swallow. Almost a wine or cider flavor left on the palate. The alcohol content is evident throughout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle at John’s Buffet in Winfield, IL., and poured to fluted glassware showing a hazed, golden color, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was light spice, soft malt, light honey sweetness, and subtle grape which expressed a soft, vinous quality. The taste continued the aroma notes, spiced by moderate hop bitterness, saffron?...not sure, propelled by suitable carbonation, in a medium body. Lightly dry finishing, with well hidden alcohol. Enjoyable!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at a private party at Great Divide last April 12th with KROC homebrew club. Pours a yellow gold with small head and lace. Aroma of honey, field flavors, lime juice, persimmon. Modest carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of light lemon lime soda, sweet malts, honeydew melon juice, candy sugar, sorghum, persimmon. Overall complex and tasty but not something I’d want more than a 10 oz glass.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden with a transient finger of white foam. Excellent clarity. Smells like honey and grain with the slightest hint of white grape juice; sweet nose. Tastes of grain and....belgian yeast flavors. Some metallic and earthy flavors I can’t quite put my finger on. Quite sweet flavor as well. Thin with lo carb and a semi dry finish.

Very sweet taste of honey, more wine than beer for me. The sweet taste started getting too strong for me about halfway through. The first sip rated much higher than the last one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, peach gold with a 1 finger soapy white head that has great retention and leaves decent, streaky lacing. Aroma of honey, toast, deep floral notes, sweet grain an sweet and acidic vinous notes. Flavor is full of honey, planty vinous notes, wildflowers, sharp earthy spice, dark fruit, light sweet grain. Medium body, oily, creamy, chewy body, light to medium strength, sharp, blanketing carbonation. Good, interesting stuff overall, probably more like mead than anything else, the more I drink, the more interesting it becomes, especially in the aroma department.
