Feels/tastes more like a wine than a beer. But thats not necessarily a bad thing. Probably won’t try this beer again but it’s something everyone should try once.

Pours a red tinted golden color. Notes of apples, wine, honey, chocolate hops, booze, and fruit. Sweet finish.

Very clear like a white wine, dry like wine, musty, bread-scent and fruity like a wine. A good beer to drink if you are not 100% into wine. The yeast gives off a dough-ish taste. There is a slight grape scent. The beer has a good carbonation to the body. Barely a lace left on the glass. Overall enjoyable, easy to drink, flavorful with grape, bread, yeast, slight tangy and tartness.

Interesting. Tastes more like white wine to me than beer. Not one of Dogfish Head’s best, but not terrible.

12 oz. draft at Plan B in Glastonbury, CT. Pour is light golden, mostly clear with just a touch of haze. Head is effervescent and short lived, almost no lacing. Smell is saison- like. Yeasty, some banana, white grapes, touch of clove. Taste is nice, like a saison but more wine characteristics like a hybrid. Bubbly texture to compliment the style. All if the aroma qualities come forward in the flavor as we'll. Not bad.

This is the type of beer of come to expect from Dogfish Head, unique. Nice tartness/sour taste, but it’s still clearly beer at its heart.
