different. But not a welcome change. Alcohol presence is not attractive.. Aftertaste of grapes and dries fruit. Interesting but not specia. Almost no head. No lacing. Not my style. But if you like itm coo.

Pours an interesting pink color. No head. Carbonated more like a white wine. Interesting smell. Is much more reminiscent of a wine than beer. Little bit musty. Well, it doesn’t really taste like wine. Very fruity, along with the sweetness of honey. Tastes more like a beer than wine. The mouth feel though, is again like wine. Most interesting "beer" I’ve had in a long time. Although I don’t think this is actually classified as a beer. Definitely never had anything like it before.

Wow! This was impressive from first sniff. Looks & smells of a great wine, but the sweet, complex flavors dance on your tongue.

One of the best beers I have tried, you can really feel the taste of honey.
I dont know how people can rate 92 on this beer, it is 100.
I will bring a lot Brazil, specially because I never find DogFish head there

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lightly hazed dullish gold. Light head. 3 months aged from bottle date. Aroma of a kinda peachy apricot but generally a slight grape slight honey floral, slight cherry,but almost just mainly a grainy lager aroma. Very very subtle hints of spice . If you werent looking for it you would just think its a grainy lager with almost nothing. Taste is some light malts with light grape,light fermented minerally honey with dry alcohol notes,smooth,slickish,peppery kind of finish. Almost tastes like an imperial pilsner with some slight fruitness little bit of tartness near the end. Not complex but has some subtle uninspiring character.

appearance is much lighter than it tastes...tastes fairly heavy, high alcohol, and of dark fruits...but looks golden..grape flavor and mild honey palate make up the taste. Beyond that is the beer taste...decent

355ml bottle as a gift brought home from Virginia for me:
Bitter and subdued at first but with a bit of effort the background sweetness, grapes and honey come through stronger thankfully. There is plenty of spice, some of which seems to linger a bit and this is followed by a solid malt smell and some caramel too.
Medium amber & a small, bubbly white head on top that holds pretty well considering this is a 9% abv. beer.
Strong malts & caramel backing it up, honey plus a pinch of spice follow. Strong with some floral flavours coming into the mix as well.
Full bodied with medium to high carbonation & plenty of spice. Dry towards the end qith some alcohol but this is relatively well hidden.
Very nice again from Dogfish Head but nowhere near as good as their 90 Minute IPA which goes to show just how good that particular offering was. I enjoyed this one more and more as I worked my way down the glass, possibly due to the alcohol content but it was certainly a good beer.
