Honey, honey and more honey. Yet it was a lot softer then the mead i've tries. All in all a good unique brew worth a try, if nothing else but for the historic sence and the bragging rights. For the price i don't know if i'd buy it again when i can buy a superb bottle of Chimey blue.

Interesting hybrid. Sweet with low carb. If this is accurate, they were drinking a lot better than I expected back in the day.

Bottled 2/20/15 at 44 degrees into 0.5 L siedel

Aroma of something I don’t recognize, initially weak and fades to nothing
Head average (Three cm, aggressive pour), white, fizzy, diminishing to three mm ring and layer of tiny bubbles
Lacing – none
Body light yellow, chill haze
Flavor odd and very not beer-like, more of a bitter herbal remedy; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl, no DMS.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation
Appearance 4/5, Aroma 6/10, Flavor 7/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 14/20

12 oz bottle poured. Pours an oily golden color with a thin ring head. Bottled a while back. Light body, white wine like. Sweet grape, with a dry dusty finish. I love the idea behind beers like this, but this one just tasted off to me. Bonus points for a unique beer, and it was fun to try, but flavor wise, this one was less my type of beer.

Bottle. No detailed notes - very sweet aroma, sweet but slightly hoppy taste, raw honey aftertaste.

Draught @ The Baroness. Hazy pale yellow with small foamy whitish head, honey like aroma, low carbonation, sweetish taste with muscat grape flavor, medium tangy finish. Interesting but a bit too sweet.

Had a sample at World of Beer fest. Aroma of wine grapes. Taste is sweet: grapes, honey, and malt. Very good.

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!

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.
