Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2001
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.

brokensail (12891) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
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.

Theydon_Bois (12590) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Tap at Smith’s Billiards, Springfield, 19/05/13. Clear pale golden with a good sized white head. Nose carries cereal notes, grain, light citrus, grass. Taste comprises light caramel notes, sugars, pale malts, grain, cereals, grass, light spice, honey. Medium bodied, surprisingly so for a 9% brew, fine carbonation, crisp finish. Ok for the experiment it is, clean and easy drinking for 9%! Would I go back to this - nah !!

Koelschtrinker (12453) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 23, 2012
Herb-süßer, mild kräuterartiger Beginn. Dann hefiger, hintergründig leicht alkoholisch. Etwas nussig, insgesamt etwas zu mild. Gut trinkbares Bier, das für seinen Alkoholgehalt aber zu wenig zu bieten hat. 11/8/9/8/12/8

bhensonb (12308) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 5, 2007
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.

bu11zeye (12150) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 8, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a lightly hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of sour grapes and honey. Flavor of malt, caramel, and lots of alcohol.

argo0 (12038) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 26, 2003
Hazy amber with medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, perfumy, fruity (pear, peach, grape), slight honey. Taste is honey sweet, some fruity (wine grape), and surprisingly, bitter (earthy/floral). Medium-full body, semi-dry finish. The grape flavor lingers, so that a couple of minutes after drinking, you'd think you'd just had wine, not beer. Excellent experiment, very good beer.
