Somehwere between a beer, wine and mead, this smooth, dry ale will please with Chardonnay or I.P.A. drinker alike.

SinH4 (2080) - Garching, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2015
Hazy orange color with hardly any head. Aroma of fruity grapes, sweetness. Awesome taste that goes back and forth between honey, grapes, tartness. Amazing complexity. Quite sparkling carbonation. A bit boozy. I absolutely love this one!

ccex (1171) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle pours a clear golden color with moderate white head that diminishes quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma has honey, grapes, and grass. Taste is sweet with some dryness in the finish. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden. The honey makes it as much of a mead as a beer. I had hoped this was another outrageous beer from Dogfish Head, but I got distracted and drank most of it, thinking it was just another beer before I paid more attention to it. Good, but not worth the premium price.

12oz bottle. Pours a golden color with a small off-white head. Mostly malty aroma with sweetness. Flavor is somewhat sweet with honey notes, bit of grape as well. Not bad, but a bit confusing.

Virtually no smell but taste is sweet. Took the recommendation of my hostess for a smaller beer than the Burton Baton I just finished but it is only 1% less in alcohol. Hindsight would find me ordering another Burton only due to the sweetness but the taste is pleasant. Being a hophead who finds a beer that smells like cat pee appealing I would still recommend this for people who want a sweeter ale that packs a punch.
