a soft vanilla flavor to begin. very soft. some citrus notes as well. maybe more of a limeyness than a lemon. softer flavors too. pear and a little oak? there’s something else towards the finish, a lackluster wateryness that is unappealing. a little heat and plenty of gas in the finish. virtually no hop bitterness on the palate. meh, i find myself back and forth between enjoying some of the flavors and wanting more.

750ml bottle. Pours a light golden color with a one finger head that disapates into a ring of light lacing. Aroma is light with, hops, berries and hints of honey. Taste follows the nose, lots of pale malts with a very white wine and honey sweetness. White grapes, honey and a sort of fruity tartness towards the back end. Flavor rises as the beer warms. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation that is smooth and creamy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a rusty orange color with a small white head. Nose is fruity and sweet, with definite upfront currants. Taste is too sweet and overwhelmingly over taken by the currants. Finish is sweet, and fruity. Not a big fan of fruit beers, but this is over the top, Quaff Score 5 / 10

Pours a cloudy orange with a beige head and aroma of fruity currants, and yeast. Taste is sweet, lots of currants, fruity notes, ethers, bread, and spices with a yeasty, fruity finish. Wasn’t big on the taste of this brew

Bottle from Beckley’s Country Store. Pours apricot with very little head. Slight fruitiness on the nose. Has a bit of a grape like vibe on the tongue. Not getting much Belgian Ale type action. Finishes clean. Not my favorite DFH.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml shared at Madison tasting. Hazy golden tan body. Thin, oliy, steady off-white head. Smooth and refined, but a little overpriced to say the least..this beer should have been in sixpacks. Enjoyable enough, mellow currant tones, smooth golden malt. Some mild honey in the finish. Not quite World Class, but enjoyable.

Clear light golden with a small pale head. Aroma is peach blossom, blackcurrant, heather honey. Light bodied, sweet on the palate with a lingering fruity aftertaste. Flavour is blackcurrant, peach, heather honey, hint of apricot. Can’t stand the band but quite enjoyed the ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, about a year and half old. Murky amber beer with a small head. Aroma is super malty, sweet, raisiny. Taste is medium sweet with some nice fruitiness. Finish is lightly sweet. Medium bodied, soft-moderate carbonation. I don’t know what it’s like fresh, but this was actually not bad.
