Pours golden colored with almost no head. Aroma is honey with hints of grape. Taste is just great similar to a light mead. It is very refreshing and sessionable.

Bork (318) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Highly interesting beverage filled with smells and tastes, most noticably green grapes, spices and a little bit of cider. Sweet and tart, both in pleasant amounts. Fairly alcoholic, which becomes less noticeable with each sip. More interesting than good.

33cl bottle from Duke’s, London. It pours a clean deep golden color with a tiny white head that dissipates completely very wuickly. Aroma is sweet, bold, slightly boozy, with notes of white grapes, white wine, cedar wood, saffrom, almonds. taste is mostly sweet upfront with more notes of white wine, grape skins, saffron, almonds, strawberry jam and toasted bread. Finishes quite tart and fruty, light citrus notes. Full bodied with sparkling carbonation. Overall, really tasty and interesting, could be more drinkable with a lower ABV I think

Cervesa molt aromàtica, es noten aromes a raím, en boca també es nota el raím però també el toc dolç i altres sabors que la fan molt complexa. Cerveza muy aromática, se notan aromas a uva, en boca también se nota la uva pero también el toque dulce y otros sabores que la hacen muy compleja.

rosenbergh (7238) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Draught at the Dogfish Head Alehouse, Fairfax, VA. Cloudy orangey golden colour with a tiny white head. Sweetish malty aroma. A weak aroma. The flavour is sweetness, dry maltiness, some cidery notes and The 9% is almost unnoticeable but it warms nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille. Merci Charles. Couleur ambrée assez pâle. Arôme de Muscat incroyable, sucre et malt. En bouche, une douceur incroyable, le miel ressort en bouche et en finale. Le muscat est présent, le malt, le miel. Belle finale douce et soyeuse, peu amère. Excellente.
