Pours like a champagne, light and bubbly. Smells of sour grapes in an almost funky way. A nice drink, excites the tongue.

At Tylers Apex. Ok/good aroma. Sweet. Grape, yeast, minorly so. Pale yellow color, small head minor lace. Sweet flavor. Light body, thin smooth mouthfeel, dry finish. Good, flavor best part. Nice big sweet white grape flavor. Aroma kind of quiet.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2012
750mL bottle from 2012. Pours very lively and effervescent, clear gold and pale yellow, with a fluffy 2-finger snow-white head. Blebs of lacing remain as it recedes. Aromas of champagne, chardonnay, and grapey notes; very champagne-like. Sugar, yeast, some funk, and wet hay are also evident. The flavor is tart grape, sweet cherry, and fruit stones; some bitterness, grass, yeast, and grape acidity follow, finishing with a mild tart funk, yeast, and cheese. The aftertaste is a bit earthy. Lively mouthfeel, medium body, and dry. This is pretty tasty; one of the better recent offerings Iíve had. [991]

Pailhead (6031) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of fruit, yeast, apple, banana, and clove. It pours a transparent gold with a one finger, somewhat fizzy, white head that quickly fades to a thin film. Thereís some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts a quick dose of sweet apple and a hint of yeast. The finish has some lemon sourness, light banana, and clove. There is a hint of the 9% abv, but it blends well with the flavors. Itís light-medium bodied with some lively, but somewhat soft, carbonation. Overall, this seems like a Hefeweizen lightly spiked with some wild yeast/tartness. The lemon becomes more prominent as it warms and definitely improves the flavor. Overall, itís okay, but not worth the price. Make it a 4-pack at the Festina Peche price point and Iíd probably buy it when the mood struck. As is, itís a highly unlikely re-purchase. Also, technical guidelines may label this as a Fruit Beer, but if you havenít tried this yet, do not expect a fruit beer.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a two finger thick head. Long lasting foamy retention along with some lacing. A wheaty saison yeast in the nose. Musty basement aromas. Slight fruity and floral notes. Tart fruitiness throughout the flavor. Lemon and white wine flavors. It really reminds me of drinking a Pinot Grigio. Pilsner malts. A little yeasty with a good amount of funk with a tart finish. Tart. Crisp. Medium bodied. Slight sour funky finish. Really does remind me of white wine in so many ways. Pretty good and interesting offering from DFH Ales.

Ooooooh, now this bottle is some neat shite. I complain regularly about Dogfish putting creativity before quality, but no bitchiní to be found here. Noble Rot is a fairly amazing little concoction, layered and complex and as deadly as a ninja. Pours beautifully, and the nose reeks of pils malt and France. Tastes, uh, saisony, with a mild peppery sweetness, but the grape must does some seriously strange things to this brew. The finish is prolonged and bready and winelike and tart and absolutely frigging delicious, like a second, tasty brew tacked on to the back of a well-made, deviously potent saison. If you find a bottle, buy it.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 From a bottle poured a straw color with a small amount of head. Light tart malty flavor with a lingering finish.

Slipstream (2281) - USA - APR 11, 2012
Looks very much like a sudsy wine or a cider. The lightly earthy aroma reminds my nostrils of cider plus a whiff of the barnyard. The flavor is sour and funky, with some grape juice and flowers. There is a little raunchy bitterness that suggests the brew might have been infected - but that might have been intentional. Once again DFH reaches for something way out of the ordinary - this stuff is definitely different! It does get more enjoyable as one gets used to the odd flavor, but Noble Rot still trods on dangerous soil by mixing together wine sourness with hop bitterness.

Sweet light grain and fruit aroma. Clear yellow color with a large white head. Tart beginning with a mildly old malt sweet creamy finish.
