3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle at John’s Buffet in Winfield, IL., and poured to fluted glassware showing a hazed, golden color, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was light spice, soft malt, light honey sweetness, and subtle grape which expressed a soft, vinous quality. The taste continued the aroma notes, spiced by moderate hop bitterness, saffron?...not sure, propelled by suitable carbonation, in a medium body. Lightly dry finishing, with well hidden alcohol. Enjoyable!

On tap at a private party at Great Divide last April 12th with KROC homebrew club. Pours a yellow gold with small head and lace. Aroma of honey, field flavors, lime juice, persimmon. Modest carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of light lemon lime soda, sweet malts, honeydew melon juice, candy sugar, sorghum, persimmon. Overall complex and tasty but not something I’d want more than a 10 oz glass.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden with a transient finger of white foam. Excellent clarity. Smells like honey and grain with the slightest hint of white grape juice; sweet nose. Tastes of grain and....belgian yeast flavors. Some metallic and earthy flavors I can’t quite put my finger on. Quite sweet flavor as well. Thin with lo carb and a semi dry finish.
Serving type: bottle

Very sweet taste of honey, more wine than beer for me. The sweet taste started getting too strong for me about halfway through. The first sip rated much higher than the last one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, peach gold with a 1 finger soapy white head that has great retention and leaves decent, streaky lacing. Aroma of honey, toast, deep floral notes, sweet grain an sweet and acidic vinous notes. Flavor is full of honey, planty vinous notes, wildflowers, sharp earthy spice, dark fruit, light sweet grain. Medium body, oily, creamy, chewy body, light to medium strength, sharp, blanketing carbonation. Good, interesting stuff overall, probably more like mead than anything else, the more I drink, the more interesting it becomes, especially in the aroma department.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an interesting pink color. No head. Carbonated more like a white wine. Interesting smell. Is much more reminiscent of a wine than beer. Little bit musty. Well, it doesn’t really taste like wine. Very fruity, along with the sweetness of honey. Tastes more like a beer than wine. The mouth feel though, is again like wine. Most interesting "beer" I’ve had in a long time. Although I don’t think this is actually classified as a beer. Definitely never had anything like it before.

Wow! This was impressive from first sniff. Looks & smells of a great wine, but the sweet, complex flavors dance on your tongue.

One of the best beers I have tried, you can really feel the taste of honey.
I dont know how people can rate 92 on this beer, it is 100.
I will bring a lot Brazil, specially because I never find DogFish head there
