4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler in late 2013.
S: Saffron, honey, herbs, bile. Incredibly complex.
T: Follows nose, but herbs dominate. It also had an apple juice like quality.
M: Very crisp. Lots of carbonation.
O: I love that Dogfish Head made this. I heard about it on NPR. As a history geek, I had to try it. It was an incredibly interesting experience trying this.

Exotic. It is old recipe from King Midas, mead like with sweet wine tones. Nice golden color. No hops to notice. More sweet white wine like than beer.

Pours gold with a thick white pillowy head. Aroma is fruity and vinous - you can definitely pick up the grapes. Taste is red wine-like with a toasty mid and a medium bitter finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear golden with minimal head. Nose is grapes, something sweet maybe honey, little malty. Taste is odd. Tough to describe the taste, a bit fruity, funky, sweet and dries out, it's grainy? This beer kinda blows. Strange, not in a good way.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Notes of honey and lavender on the aroma. Appearance is a light gold with a small white head with poor retention. Flavor is a wine, honey mix. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's an interesting ancient drink to try, but not sure I'd buy it again.

330ml bottle shared @Buskers Pub (Rome). Light amber appearance, a bit unclear, medium foam. Aroma is fruity, malt, honey, raisins, interesting. Flavour is a bit unbalanced, sweet, caramel, honey, raisins. Medium body, low carbonation. Original ones, but not my cup of tea.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
