Pours gold with a small head that quickly dissipated. Aroma of wine and malt. Flavor was white wine and some fruity maltiness with a faint hop bitterness. Delicious with clams and linguine and asparagus and strawberries. I should have added a little to the clam sauce.

Light and airy on the nose with a slight citrus aroma. A kind of plum/citrus flavor with a dry wine like finish. Appearance is clear. Overall a nice, crisp beer.

Poured a clear amber color with a thin white head. Taste fruity and dry like a white wine with malty yeast aftertaste, really good and drinkable. Has a fruity and tart taste with a nice dry finish.

Atom (1212) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle pours a clear golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma of dry cracker malt and saison yeast. Taste is pretty simple and one dimensional, saison yeast and some crisp wine grape (must). I was expecting more, this was rather simple and boring.

Pours a translucent yellow color with a white head. Fruit, white wine, tart, light malt and yeast aroma. Tart, white wine, apple, citrus, pear, yeast and light malt flavor. Light body and average carbonation. Sweet and slightly tart taste and a tart fruity finish.

Visuellement, on a en tête un champagne lorsqu’on regarde cette bière : jaune paille limpide, des bulles à profusion et un mince col mousseux qui est tout de même persistant. Un bouquet complexe et alléchant de moût de raisin, de levure sauvage et de céréales sucrées nous laisse croire que ce sera grandiose en bouche et croyez-moi, c’est le cas. D’une grande complexité, la Noble Rot est caractérisée par son aspect vineux et son acidité rafraîchissante. Le côté sucré des céréales et du raisin s’étale dans une finale sèche et biscuitée. Les houblons utilisés sont aromatiques et complémentent à merveille le profil légèrement sauvage de cette bière. Une grande réussite de Dogfish Head.

Okay, so I avoid Dogfish Head’s off centered brews like they are poison. Beer brewed with whatever weird thing they can get away with. So I had this poured at a tasting of 4 "off centered beers". Its was champagne colored with a small white head. Little co2. Aroma was a little sour and winey. The aroma was sweet, the taste was dry. The main flavor was light, tart and winey. With the words ROT and INFECTED on the bottle I imagine many avoid this, do yourself a favor, try it. Out of the four this is the one I bought.

750mL bottle. Poured clear, quite light straw golden with a fizzy, short-lived white head. The aroma picked up dank red grapes and wheat, accented by kaffir lime, salt, and pineapple.. hard to get a grasp on, but it was very interesting. The flavor found quite a bit of salt, lime, and wheaty tanginess throughout.. champagne-like effervescence and flavor at times.. finished dry, carrying through lots of wheat, lime, salt, and carbonation. Medium-bodied with fairly high carbonation on the palate.. crisp and refreshing at most times, but there were some residual sugars that bogged it down a bit.. enjoyable overall, but I didn’t love it.
