Wow! This is the tastiest beer I’ve had in months. Pours golden clear with a thin white head. Not much smell, maybe some grape. Aromas are white grapes, cereal, yeast with a nice bitter bite to the finish. Tastes are sour with some light sweet in the back. Mouth is medium body with psi sly carbonation.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was of malt, grapes, white wine and some grain. The taste was similar to the aroma with some acidity and alcohol. Very good.

Sampled up at EBF 12’. Dogfish Head was the last table I decided to hit up that night, so needless to say my palate was more then a little shot. I do remember however that this had a distinct pinot flavor/aroma to it. It was an interesting brew but I’m not sure if I’d order one on draft or not.

Strykzone (5602) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Smpled at an esbls tasting. Clear ligjt golden. Little head. There is so much going on here. Vinous, wheat, fruity, yeast. Like everything DFH this is completely unique. Really good, too.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2012
750ml that I opened the other day with a few friends. Pours a lighter golden with a nice white head. Sticky lace to say the least....The aroma is packed with white grape juice, sugar, sugar and more sugar! Some spice and earthy funk are also present. Flavor is super sweet. This is like white grape juice with carbonation. Wayyy to sweet for me and my teeth hate me for trying to consume this. I understand that this beer was made to taste like this but it’s sure not for me. Drain....here’s your first DFH, so enjoy.

Traubengeruch. Süß-säuerlicher Beginn, passende Traubennoten. Geringe Alkoholigkeit, mild säuerlich bleibend. Weinartig hell, gering herb, harmonisch. Intensiver Abgang, auch wegen des sich nun gut einbringenden Alkohols. 11/12/12/12/8/12

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2012
split a bomber, clear, golden in color, hints of fruity flavors in smell. lightly sour, more tart, definitely picking up fruity saoson flavors, maybe because of the 9%abv. medium to light body, dry finish. Good balance, overall a tasty brew.

Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2012
pours a crips light hazy apricot. strong smell of grapes. sweet grape juice, nice sour funk, good carb drinks more like a reisling wine than beer but none the less it was delicious to share, probably too sweet for me to drink more than a glass.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with a short white head. Aroma of white wine, grapes and some spices. Flavor was tart fruit, grape skins, white wine, yeast and floral hops with a nice dry finish. Decent brew
