Very interesting beer. Dfh certainly brews outside the box. Pours a golden color with minimal head. Aroma of earth and grapes. Taste like a white wine. Carbonated mouth feel. Nice change of pace

On the sixth day of Christmas 2014. Pours gold with a slight haze. Medium fluffy white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is grapes, earthy, with a lot of white wine characteristics. Taste is tart and sweet with a crisp drying finish. Medium bodied, good carbonation that provides a lively mouth feel and overall very enjoyable.

A truly unique drink that actually made me remember why I used to love dfh. Aroma is tons of grape, slight funk, light floral yeasty notes. Taste is like an interesting carbonated wine with light maltiness to differentiate it a bit. Really enjoyed drinking this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blonde bodied with a thin, but resilient head. Nose of stone fruit and red wine grapes. Belgian blonde yeast flavors with modest phenols, a touch of pepper and close, wash over a thin grape lining. The pepper lingers pleasantly on the palate. Light, almost watery, but not watered down. A crisp, vivacious drink.

750, from 2011. This aged well like a Sauternes. Great winey flavors, lots of wine characteristics, the base beer was jsut carbonation and it let the botrytis take over. Very well done and its starting to restore my faith in dfh

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle shared at tasting. Pale, filtered yellow tan. Foamy white head, patchy. Creamy on the palate. Easy. Not unlike an Imperial Pils or big Lager. Grape tones come out the more you sip at it.....and I can’t really get into that. Tastes like wine, mead. An OK beverage, but not such a great beer.

Pours fizzy and clear, pale, yellow. White head fades quickly. White grape nose, bit sour. Fruity and farmy taste; dry, green apples, Sour grapes. Very drinkable, despite 9% ABV.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Bright brassy gold color with a small bubbly white head. Fresh white grape nose has hints of hay, yeast and wheat. Tart dry sour malt flavor. More like semi-dry champagne with a bit less carbonation. Bitter peppery mid taste. Soft dry saison-like finish. Leave it to Dogfish Head to bring us this unique brew. Nice job.
