Sweet, honey aroma. Pours dark golden color with little head and a lot of carbonation. Very sweet with raisin notes and strong honey flavor. Excellent mead like beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yourilevesque (89) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours apilsner-like golden beer. Head is thin but sticky to the glass. Lovely carbonation of tiny bublles rising from the bottom of the glass like an upside down gentle Christmas snow! Aromas: grapes mush, malt and honey, almost like a Pilsner (again) cranked with sugar. Nothing special there. Taste and mouthfeel: no hops, just grapes and sugar. Dry finish. Big lack of complexity in this beer.

WABeerFiend (274) - - JAN 15, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler in late 2013. S: Saffron, honey, herbs, bile. Incredibly complex. T: Follows nose, but herbs dominate. It also had an apple juice like quality. M: Very crisp. Lots of carbonation. O: I love that Dogfish Head made this. I heard about it on NPR. As a history geek, I had to try it. It was an incredibly interesting experience trying this.

dhasmonek (28) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Exotic. It is old recipe from King Midas, mead like with sweet wine tones. Nice golden color. No hops to notice. More sweet white wine like than beer.

S_Side_Smitty (530) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Pours gold with a thick white pillowy head. Aroma is fruity and vinous - you can definitely pick up the grapes. Taste is red wine-like with a toasty mid and a medium bitter finish.

revolution2718 (291) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours clear golden with minimal head. Nose is grapes, something sweet maybe honey, little malty. Taste is odd. Tough to describe the taste, a bit fruity, funky, sweet and dries out, it's grainy? This beer kinda blows. Strange, not in a good way.

Underdogs88 (204) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Notes of honey and lavender on the aroma. Appearance is a light gold with a small white head with poor retention. Flavor is a wine, honey mix. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's an interesting ancient drink to try, but not sure I'd buy it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (1052) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 25, 2014
330ml bottle shared @Buskers Pub (Rome). Light amber appearance, a bit unclear, medium foam. Aroma is fruity, malt, honey, raisins, interesting. Flavour is a bit unbalanced, sweet, caramel, honey, raisins. Medium body, low carbonation. Original ones, but not my cup of tea.

rondphoto (2468) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 16, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, frothy rim head, streaks of lace. Taste is clean malt that grows, adding a little sweet in the palate, before covering everything with assertive, edgy carbonation on the swallow. Sweet re-emerges in a medium finish. A heavy brew in the stomach, not at all usual, but also, not very enjoyable.

Sweet beer, can taste saffron, grapes and a little honey. The flavor lingers a little too long for my taste. This beer has definitely got an odd flavor to it. It is worth experiencing.
