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.

2012.02.22 - On tap at Always Ron’s. Light in color, yellow basically. Head is sticky and remains wherever it has touched. Aroma basically smells like wine to me, which is not a plus because I don’t really care for wine in general. Taste is lightly tart, not as much as the Tweason. Obvious grape. Not a bad taste but not something I’d drink a lot of.

Very sour and acidic, while there a great amount of grape taste. Its taste is harsh, though I can understand the reason why people enjoy.

The aroma is slightly sour and funky with grapes,honey, malt, and grass. The appearance is light pale with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a very interesting beer.

This beer was served in a tulip glass. Ar- I was a little worried at first. The beers initial aroma of corn water wasnt cutting it. Yet again I started drinking beer too cold. 20 minutes later this beer has begun to open up. The yeasty esters bring lots of bitting cloves. Up underneath the peppery cloves is a raw green grape and ripe grape sweetness. Ap- The body of the beer is a clear very efferescent to the point of sparkling pale yellow. The head is thick and white. Nice head retention noted. Thick rings of lacing mark this beers passage from my glass. T- Peppery coriander yeastyness supports a lightly sweetened grape flavor. The cloves and pepperyness reassert themselves at the close of the flavor. P- The beer has a light fizzy body. Nicely balanced between pepperyness and tartness. This is a an example of a DFH experiment gone right.

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - FEB 21, 2012
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 (8530) - 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.

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear light liquid gold straw color with a large foamy white head. Aroma of wine grapes, bubble gum, cloves, light bananas, hops and yeast. Taste of wine grapes, cloves, light banana, hops and yeast. slightly tart and tangy.

docsteigs (542) - Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Aroma of white wine, mild wheat malts, hops not apparent; pour nice, clear, quite bubbly; taste is the most wine-centered ale from DFH I’ve had, melds well with the wheat malts; has a nice sour presence, I’m guessing will continue to sour w age as well.
