Cantabrian (762) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 24, 2014
Nice, interesting reddish golden sour beer, with a good touch of wine. No mentionable head, but a healthy looking brew, perhaps from the saffron. Full of red berries and honey on the flavour. Sour and crisp. Very likeable.

ChrisFields (69) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours golden with a thin bubbly head. Aromas of white grapes and honey with a little bit of malt in the nose. Flavor is sweet. Pale grapes and honey are prevalent along with a little bit of biscuit. Feels a little oily on the tongue and is very smooth. Overall a unique and refreshing drink. It is like a mead but there is a moscato character along with a classic ale-ishness. You should try it out.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a grape aroma. Mouthfeel and taste between a wine and beer. Good change of pace. ----Hophaze out

ScipioA (211) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Pours out a beautiful glowing orange/yellow, with a ton of flaky pale floaties. I guess the floaties add character for DFH’s ancient ale series, so no points knocked off. Just a little bit of a white head. Huge yeast aromas with tons of honey. Tastes sweet, a tiny bit sour. Combined with the yeast it reminds me of a tasty sourdough loaf drizzled with honey. Some spicy notes as well. Lingering sweet aftertaste with very little bitterness anywhere. It has a thick and smooth mouthfeel, but the carbonation both looks and feels a little harsh. Overall a very interesting drink that barely shows its 9% abv. Who knows if people actually drank exactly this, but fun to imagine our ancient drunken ancestors.

Pale amber with white head. Nose is white grape jelly, hay, light cherry, faint honey, and mild alcohol. Flavor is initially light, sweet white grape before finishing with a dry honey finish and hay. Lingering dry white wine. Alcohol not that noticeable.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with white head. Really interesting aroma. Very floral like wild flowers with sweetness of honey. Love the aroma. Taste is very sweet with no bitterness. Herbal, flower, honey, vinous taste. Agree that it's a wine, mead beer combination. Complex and interesting drink. Light to medium bodied. I really like the concept of these ancient ales. This is not something I would drink all the time, but it's very good and glad I tried it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
