3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2/21/12. 750mL bottle. Super clear dark golden, almost copper, pour with a nice big off-white head that fades to a few millimeters quickly. Yeasty, slightly funky aroma that reminds me of white pepper and sadly of erasers/rubber bands. Surprisingly nice and tart flavor entry - tart and sweet white grapes - with blatant pilsner malt and then more of that peppery eraser aspect that kills it for me. Surprisingly not horrible for DFH, though.

750 from Craft. Pours clear, and very pale gold with 3-finger white head that leaves copious lacing. Nose is very funky, cobwebby yeasty, with spare hops, some chardonnay notes, and funky florals. Tastes a lot like a dry chardonnay/champagne hybrid, only with less carbonation and more funky and malty flavors. Very interesting, and very enjoyable. This one gets very close to the beer/wine boundary.

Aroma of white wine, mild wheat malts, hops not apparent; pour nice, clear, quite bubbly; taste is the most wine-centered ale from DFH Iíve had, melds well with the wheat malts; has a nice sour presence, Iím guessing will continue to sour w age as well.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Cnals. I usually love Dogfish brews, but this one just didnít do it for me. For the style I guess it was ok. A little too white grapey for me.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 Poured from 750 ml bottle into a snifter. This beer is straw yellow in color with a moderate white head. This beer has a very pronounced grape and biscuity aromas. Taste starts out semi-sweet and finishes dry. This kind of reminds me of a semi-dry white wine. This beer is very complex and interesting and something I would buy in the future.
