12 oz bottle. Pours clear, light golden. Aroma of grapes, wine, citrus. Sweet and clean smelling. Flavor is honey, grape, citrus, bread, floral. A very interesting beer that is a dry white wine/beer mix, but no where near as awful as that sounds.

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.

Jimsal27 (235) - New York, USA - AUG 26, 2014
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

Oly (35) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2014
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 (533) - 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

jsnicholas (117) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle (12oz): Pours golden with white head. Smells and tastes like a boobly white wine with hops. Not bad is you like that sort of thing

Lizardking3 (95) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours bright gold. Aroma is grapes and yeast. Taste is grapes and must upfront.... The honey immediately comes in after and lingers hard. This is completely dry, which is a little surprising considering grapes and honey. I don’t know if it’s the saffron or too much boil hops, but it’s a little too bitter on the back end. Almost pill like. Interesting drink though

solidfunk (3889) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pretty good drink for a style that ran out of popularity a few thousand years ago. Pours gold. Lots of honey and light grapes. Light sour finish. Hard to detect the saffron. Bottle.
