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 light golden clear color with a nice eggshell head. Strong honey malty aroma. first sip introduces a bouquet of spices followed by sweet grapey tannic on the palate. Great dinner drink which complements any dish.

Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with small white ring of head. Quite some chill haze. Aroma is packed with heather honey, honey spice, herb, fruity, malty grains, and slight grapefruit. Taste is sweet honey, spice, blossom, flowery, grapefruit, sugar, herbs. High carbonation cuts through the sticky honey. Light bitter grapefruit in finish.

Wife purchased, not a fan. Smells like bud light. Taste is floral and finishes like a wine which I hate. Not my thing.

Hazy golden with one finger white head. Aroma of saffron and sweet white wine. Hints of malt and hop but more of a after dinner wine with honey saffron notes. Interesting and unique.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is different from most beers available. It is almost a mix of a mead and a farmhouse ale. There is a bit of a fruity flavor from the grapes, a bit of honey flavor, and a great malt and slight Belgium yeast flavor. I would recommend this as a change of pace beer that almost anyone would enjoy

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly cloudy yellow with a thin layer of white foamy head. Aroma of forest fruits, woodsy, honey. Flavour is woody, more honey, lemongrass, some more forest fruits, caramel, burnt finish. Medium to high carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Great stuff

The story behind this beer obviously makes it a bit better, but it is quite alright in itself though. The aroma is the most interesting part - clear notes of honey, grapes, yeast, some alcohol, and some spicyness that might come from the saffron. The taste is a bit overpowered by sweet and alcoholic honey notes. Some spice and grape character, but not as interesting as the aroma promised.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Medium high fluffy white quickly disappearing head. Cloudy yellow body. Weak malt straw aroma with a good deal of alcohol notes (which I do not like). Smooth and very sweet fruity honey flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long sweet finish. Unfortunately the alcohol is too dominant in both aroma and flavor albeit the brewers have tried to hide it behind a very sweet, too sweet, flavor.

Awesome brew if wine if not. Real neat Chardonnay character but still had the malty beer character as well. Some slight tartness and earthy spice notes as well. Not sweet or cloying at all. More dry and champagne like. So wonderfully drinkable it’s unreal.

Honey mead like, slightly tart, real carbonated. Some nail polish but not much. Sweet decent finish.
