Wow. Dogfish Head has done it again. Pours a clear, honey color with a slight white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is light with notes of grapes, honey, and malt. The brew starts quite carbonated on the palate and then smooths out as it goes down. The flavor is superb. Sweet and dry with honey and grapes (like a wine) evident. Finishes dry and clean. A very impressive beer!

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.

Poured from a 12 and looks like a Coors Light. Tastes like a kings beverage! Has a nice sweet grape must nose and first taste. Sweet and slightly creamy mouth feel lasts a while. Very refreshing and drinkable. Not a novelity, one-off beer.

liquidhedonism (92) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2014
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods in Hillsboro, OR. Initial nose has Sweet Tarts and cotton candy, but after tasting, the grapes and honey come out pretty strong, reminding me of a sweet mead. The yeast imparts a subtle clove aroma. Mouthfeel starts crisp and sweet, and finishes sweet and tart. Very interesting beer. Pretty tasty!
