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.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
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.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of wine grapes, dry pilsner malt, flowers, light spice, some underlying funk. Tastes tarte and dry with some citrussy splashes and up front sweetness.

MadIndian (2434) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2012
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.

Billicus (289) - @RED BHUT JOIKIAS!, Paulsboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2012
aroma, wierd for a beer, like rotten tomatoes, but clean, color, light amber, very light, white head, that is lively some lacing, taste, Wow, def get the grape must right away, weak malt essence, then the backend is like really ripe old grapes, sweet, refreshing, overall, I thought it a quite neat beer, 9 % abv, you wouldnt even know so somooth.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
