3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a clear dark golden color with a thin white head.
S: Intensely sweet like corn syrup and honey. The grapes provide additional sweetness that probably isn’t really necessary. Floral and slightly spicy provide some opposition to the intense sugary character.
T: Lots of sweet white grape flavor, apple juice, corn syrup and honey. There is actually a bit of caramel/malt character on the palate, too. A light floral note and just a hint of spice.
M: The body is medium with a low to moderate level of carbonation.
D: Despite the intense sweetness, it didn’t become cloying or overbearing, which is sort of rare for a Dogfish Head beer.

Light bronze; sweet and spicy. Herbal, winey, sharply dry finish; caramelly malt; alcohol flavours. Tastes good, but I doubt I could drink too much at any one time.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 9% at BBF13. Almost clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour starts off very sweet, has a citric note, perhaps from the grapes? Rather alcoholic, but has a semi-round finish. OK, but much too strong.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Packaged in "1". I’ve had the bottle for at least three years. Aroma of wine and dark fruits. Hazy golden apricot color, with no head. Starts a bit sweet, a little sour hits the back of the mouth, then some biscuity sweetness comes back. Maybe a little raisin. Decent mouthfeel. The sour plays up again, it goes away, some sort of breadiness, then the dryness alternates with that light sweetness. The alcohol is noticeable. This is something that could easily come from the Belgians. But from the Phrygians? What would they have used for yeast? What fell out of the air? If the stones could speak.
