Once again Dogfish Head takes a big risk and in this instance I think it pays off (IMHO). While I think the Muscat grapes are a bit overpowering (which is why my aroma and taste scores are fairly low) but overall this is an outstanding dry, bready and sweet ale. This is a great tangent for a summer ale, which provides a shot of flavor to go along with the lighter mouthfeel. Itís hard to believe the ABV on this one as I donít get any heat when I drink it.

Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. Not much of an aroma but a hint of sweetness. Taste is semi-sweet with notes of honey and some grapes. Nice texture, very smooth and silky. Finishes with a nice warm feeling. Flavors are not very prominent but they are noticeable. Very enjoyable but just a tad too sweet for my liking.

Rather boring to me other than the 9% abv. Deep golden color with white head. Aroma of slightly sweet barley. Taste is honey, barley, a little bitter. Not bad. Just bleh.

spacecube (1483) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Bottle, pours clear, straw gold, bubbly white head. Aroma is honeycomb, cara malts, herbal, floral notes, finish is lightly bitter with pleasant alcohol warmth. Light bodied, oily texture, carbonation is soft to flat. Could be mistaken for a Belgian triple.

A fun drinking, uniquely inspired, beer that delivers an underwhelming, and yet intriguing, flavor. Light, moderate high carbonation, barely, fruity. I wouldnít buy this beer again but its worth a try for this who havenít.

Pours a light honey into the glass, and a two-finger, soapy white head dissipates into a thin layer on the surface in only a minute. The aroma is bland, light grapes and dough, but nothing as intense as Iíd hoped considering the deScription on the label. The first sip brings the aroma around and although itís intensified,itís underwhelming to the grainy flavor in the foundation. The taste is fairly sweet, but not in a positive way. The whole flavor profile just doesnít work for me. Itís not smooth, the flavors and finish seem to be at odds throughout the glass. Not a re-purchase for me.

RafeAU (559) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle in LA. Pale straw, thin head fades very fast. Smells boozy and belgian, a bit like a tripel. Drinks a bit like a tripel, moderate carbonation, aroma pretty muted. Dry from start to finish. Boozy finish with some bitterness and a note reminiscent of wine or mead. Would benefit from more carbonation and more yeast-derived flavours (like a belgian tripel). Interesting idea but I donít think this works. Glad I tried a bottle of this and didnít brew 20L of it like Iíd been considering!

Clear golden colour with small bubbles of fizz. Definite tastes of honey with a slight spice and slight wine taste. Pretty nice beer. Unusual taste at first, but pleasant. (K)

Dark pour, light head. Hints of barley and malts in the aroma. Alcohol is somewhat present in the finish.

snoworsummer (3769) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Draft at the Alehouse on rt 50. Pours almost clear bright copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like dried fruits, booze, caramel, and faint herb. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like dried fruits, caramel, and booze.

Pours a clear golden amber. The head is short lived. The initial aroma is perfumey. As the head dissipates, so does the aroma. The final aroma is subtle, suggesting herbs and florals. The beer is light with a bitter note at the end. Carbonation is lively. This beer tastes bland at first but one can detect an underlying complexity that is hard to describe. The body is light. The finish is slightly bitter. I will probably give this a beer another try but I am not impressed.
