4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful clean, clear straw color. Small 1/4 inch head. At first, a strong white grape juice on the nose, but that quickly dissapated to reveal the frangrance of spicy Belgian yeast.
Nice sharp bubbles, and citrus-y hops. Pleasant long finish rounded out by grapes.
A very delicious beer, that would be great to pair with foods that normally work with a saison or white wine.

A perfect mix between beer and wine. The liquid is gold and thick. Noble to the eye, you can expect a lot of body and smoothness from the beer. Nose is winey. A lot of grapes, sugar, alcohol as well. The taste and the mouthfeel go perfectly together and cannot be treated separatly. The slightly buttery palate we usually find in Chardonnay wines is present in this beer and mixes just right with this almost sparkling wine carbonation that adds a unique mineral and refreshing mouthfeel. I simply love this! Can be enjoyed as an apéritif or as a substitute to the glass of wine you would have with a nice fish plate!

Saison really shows through. The grapes aren’t as prevalent as I had hoped for. Very good but wished they had charged a little less.

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.
