Quite good, odd beer. Very sweet, almost like Juice. Pale with little head. Little smell. It has a dry finish with some tang of hops oh so slightly. I do taste the grapes and saffron and it is pleasant. Great sweet beer. I enjoyed this. Could not drink a lot of it though because it is so sweet.

Smells like wine in a way, also honey. I am not a big honey-in-beer fan. In any case, this was interesting but way too sweet for my liking, in spite of the interesting flavours. I dunno, I’d suggest try one for fun, but I won’t buy it again.

Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a deep gold with a quickly dissipating head. Strong sweet aroma from the honey and to a lesser degree from the grapes. Highly effervescent and coats the mouth very evenly. The taste is mildly sour up front but quickly turns to a nice sweet smooth finish. A great beer unlike any that I've had.

Doftar först bara ljus lager, men efter en stund händer det lite grejer. Lite dämpade kryddor. Belgisk saison är nog det som ligger närmast. Väldigt belgisk. SBWF 2013

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from January 2013. Pours filtered golden, thin white short lived wispy head with a bit if lacing. Smell is Chardonnay, sweet malt, honey, clove, a touch of spice, some alcohol. Taste is as advertised, sweet with the honey, tart with the white grapes and a low carbonated beer mouthfeel. Alcohol bite is tamed, and is more consistent with a wine than a beer. Basically a mead/ wine/ beer which is what it is meant to be. Not sure if this style totally succeeds from a beer perspective, and is not exactly my cup if tea, but it is different and quite refreshing. I like that DFH always seeks to set the standard for beers outside the box, and this is another example even if it isn't their best effort.

bottle. Golden with small head. Sweet with some wine-like grape flavor. There’s less flavor than I was hoping for, but this is pleasant and unique.

Pours hazy honey-colored with a pillowy, but short-lived head. Strong honey and chardonnay aroma. Flavor is somewhat like a dull mead with a hint of spice. It’s certainly interesting, but not exactly a beer. In all fairness, it doesn’t claim to be. It makes me appreciate being alive in the modern era.
