3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 0,355L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Clear, golden to orange colour, without visible carbonation. Small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing head. Yeasty aroma of mold, vinous muscatel and some herbs. Taste starts moderate sweet, where honey and muscatel comes out. Finish is moderate bitter, alcohol is warming a bit. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Been looking forward to trying this one for awhile now. Pours a beautiful golden honey color with a thin fizzy white head. Aroma is white wine, toasted malt, honey, and muscadine. Front end is white grapes, apple, followed by sweet malts and intense honey flavors. There is a bit of a boozy taste to it that you’d expect from a 9% beer. Palate is similar to a cider. Crisp and carbonated. Overall a nice change of pace from the usual. Feels more like drinking a cider or a white wine than a beer.

A very tasty brew. Reminded me a bit of a Beligan style tripel. It hits you but it is also dangerously smooth. Definitely taste the honey and grapes. Nice.

Fabulous beer. Really enjoyed this change of pace. I could drink this all the time. Hard to believe it’s 9% ABV.

Bottle, pours gold with a small, light head. Sweet tasting with the honey and fruits. Was not entirely sure what to expect with this one but it was good.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 0.355l, shared with CanCrusher. Clear golden color with small creamy, mostly diminishing white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is moderate yeasty, mainly of mold, vegetably, herbal and of grapes. Taste starts with sweet malt and honey, following is winey and alcoholic, mouthfeel is warming, while finish is light bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. This one is quite interesting with many wine characteristics...

On tap at Avery Strong Ale Festival. Appearance: slight white head, straw yellow and cloudy. Aroma: honey, very floral, but not necessarily hoppy. Palate: light body, average carbonation, sticky texture. Taste: sweet honey. Overall, definitely different and memorable, but maybe not as well balanced as it could be.
