Dark honey color, small white head. Malty, ryeish aroma. Very sweet, cream liquer with rye and alcohol. Very soft liquerish-like aftertaste. Hints of honey. This is like mead by flavor. High ABV is not much present.

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.
