Aroma was of grains, grapes and citrus... The best way I can describe the flavor is that of a very clean light tasting beer combined with elements of a dry white wine... interesting beverage and the 9% is hidden fairly well.

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.

Earthy aroma and clear golden color when poured. Tasted earthy with a very sweet finish. Probably could have done without the grape but interesting beer nonetheless.

Fantomasus (227) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Pours a light orange gold with a decent head that dissipates into a ring of film. Aromas: hay, cereal, floral, dough, and green grapes. Taste is pretty balanced but sour wins out. Palate is fairly clean, Good fun.

Brewhemia (35) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2014
Really nice almost shining golden color with a small white head. Aroma of honey and maybe spearmint. Sweet honey and almond taste with a light sourness. Not as good a taste as I had hoped from the looks and the aroma, but very interesting none the less. A taste of safran lingers on the toungue.

Bork (334) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Highly interesting beverage filled with smells and tastes, most noticably green grapes, spices and a little bit of cider. Sweet and tart, both in pleasant amounts. Fairly alcoholic, which becomes less noticeable with each sip. More interesting than good.

teorn88 (2707) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
33cl bottle from Duke’s, London. It pours a clean deep golden color with a tiny white head that dissipates completely very wuickly. Aroma is sweet, bold, slightly boozy, with notes of white grapes, white wine, cedar wood, saffrom, almonds. taste is mostly sweet upfront with more notes of white wine, grape skins, saffron, almonds, strawberry jam and toasted bread. Finishes quite tart and fruty, light citrus notes. Full bodied with sparkling carbonation. Overall, really tasty and interesting, could be more drinkable with a lower ABV I think

Cervesa molt aromàtica, es noten aromes a raím, en boca també es nota el raím però també el toc dolç i altres sabors que la fan molt complexa. Cerveza muy aromática, se notan aromas a uva, en boca también se nota la uva pero también el toque dulce y otros sabores que la hacen muy compleja.

rosenbergh (7361) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Draught at the Dogfish Head Alehouse, Fairfax, VA. Cloudy orangey golden colour with a tiny white head. Sweetish malty aroma. A weak aroma. The flavour is sweetness, dry maltiness, some cidery notes and The 9% is almost unnoticeable but it warms nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
