Been looking forward to trying this one for awhile now. Pours a beautiful golden honey color with a thin fizzy white head. Aroma is white wine, toasted malt, honey, and muscadine. Front end is white grapes, apple, followed by sweet malts and intense honey flavors. There is a bit of a boozy taste to it that you’d expect from a 9% beer. Palate is similar to a cider. Crisp and carbonated. Overall a nice change of pace from the usual. Feels more like drinking a cider or a white wine than a beer.

Effervescent. Poured from bottle a golden hue like honey. White head quickly disappeared entirely. Grapes seem to take center stage. Almost like a champagne, mead and beer all in one. I’m sure I could have fun pairing this one with some good food.

Beautiful pour. Smells like grapes, tastes like grapes. Too much grape, too much sweet. Not bad, just not my thing. Sits on the plate well.

Golden haired beauty. Fruity after balance with hints of wildfire. Enjoy on a Labour Day with your love. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stílszerűen aranyszínű testéből apró szemű gejzírként törnek elő a szénsavmolekulák, felvezetve az intenzív illatokat, melyeket a palack felnyitása után rögvest megérezhetünk. Belga élesztő és marcipán, cseppnyi alkohol aromái ezek, mely összhatás egyébként már meglehetősen ismerős lehet számunkra belga sörös tapasztalataink alapján. Testes, markánsan édes ital képét vetítik előre, ami az első korty után rögtön beigazolódni is látszik azzal a toldalékkal, amit a komlós utóíz hiánya, illetve a végső fázisként előálló szakasz virágmézhez hasonló jellemvonása okoz. A komló jelenlétét ez esetben eredménytelenül kutatjuk, annál intenzívebb viszont az ennek megszokott helyét időben megelőző ízhatás. Némi fűszerezettséget is felfedezni vélhetünk, mely ez esetben a leírás szerint a sáfrány kellene, hogy legyen. Alkoholos jellege idővel egyre inkább előtérbe kerül, így téve még inkább likőrössé az egyébként is desszertszerű főzetet. Megjegyezhető, érdekes jelenség, mindenképpen örömteli dolog egy ilyen üveg felnyitása.

Bottle pour light gold. Nose just like unoaked chardonnay. Apple, pear, and wine. Some sweet undertones. Taste similar to nose. Very much like chardonnay. Very light bitter Late palate.

A golden ale with aromas of fruit and honey. Taste follows nose. Enjoyable but don’t know if I would drink it again.

Poured into a tulip. Golden honey color with basically no head (what little there was before it faded was white). Strong aromas of grapes and must that is more reminiscent of wine than beer. Drinks with a medium body and carbonation with a complex blend of flavors which accompanies a decided dryness. Palate is interesting as well as the sweetness comes through amidst the other flavors. Unlike anything I've drank before (and certainly not likely to become a staple) but it's a nice change of pace. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Golden with ample white head. Smell and taste dominated by honey, but much more drinkable than a mead. I was much more impressed by this than I expected I’d be, given my general preference for hoppy ales.

fiammanghilla (554) - Genova, ITALY - AUG 10, 2014
Bottiglia 33cl, comprata da eataly e bevuta a casa. Chiara con schiuma nn troppo persistente. Al naso miele. In bocca il corpo è pieno con carbonazione gradevole. Miele, moscato e mandorle, finale più amaro che invita a berne ancora. Buona ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold
