Our recipe highlights the known ingredients of barley, white Muscat grapes, honey and saffron. Somehwere between a beer, wine and mead, this smooth, dry ale will please with Chardonnay or I.P.A. drinker alike.

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.

Bottle conditioned for six years. Good beer, golden color, decently fluffy head. A bit in the beginning but deliciously smooth at the end.

John25 (458) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours yellow gold, a little cloudy. The aroma is intense with white grapes, honey, and spice. The taste is very close to carbonated white cranberry juice. A lot of juicy Pinot Grigio elements. Green apple, pear, white grapes. The mouthfeel is light and sweet at first but, the honey really come through on the back end. It lingers in a syrupy, semi-rich but, light way (does that make sense? haha). Interesting unique brew. I dig it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very unique beer. Bottle pour into a Shaker. Golden color minimal head. Very floral fruity aroma right away I knew this is something different. Taste is very good it does have characteristics of white wine and mead with light carbonation and a very smooth palate. Honey and grapes are both present with floral background. It says brewed with saffron which I did not pick up that particular flavor. Overall very good "beer" elixir is a very good term for this. Would pair very well with seafood. Go in thinking honey and champagne and you will enjoy this beer.

Bottle, pours a translucent golden orange. Light fruit and grain in the aroma. Taste is grape, grain and honey with light yeastiness. Fairly underwhelming but I will say that the alcohol is very well hidden in this one, drinks very light.

A- Pours a golden hue with little to no head. S- Honey, sweet berries and a tinge of metal. T- Sweet honey, grape cough syrup and a semi bitter finish. M- Thick with medium carbonation. D- Did not enjoy this one very much. A little too medicinal for me.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Stas’ place. Thanks bytemesis for the trade! 2012 bottle. Clear gold with white ring. Sweet, honey and saffron aroma, sweet honey taste with the slightest sourness. Thick, full-bodied, syrupy, flat and round. Good and complex beer.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Right away, grape aroma similar to a white wine; not much else. Very clear beer, light orange color, 1/4 of a finger thick head. Taste, grapes, light barley. initial bitterness gives way to a sweet sensation. Somewhat sticky mouth feel but vanishes quickly to a dry finish. Alcohol mildly present. Moderate to high lacing. I don’t like many white wines (Favorites are Reds), however... This is a perfect beer to have a girlfriend/wife/friend who enjoys wine to try. High enough abv at 9% that it shows alcohol similar to a wine and enough barley to drink like a beer. Excellent!
