Backlog. Draft at DFH Alehouse-Falls Church. Once again, I ran out to try the new strange DFH brew. The benefit and curse of living 2 miles from the alehouse. Amber with offwhite head. Citrus and herbal hops, with some messy herbs and spices. No wasabi heat or burn, just an off-putting herbal mess. Is it new and experimental? Yes. Is it good? No. No it is not.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly hazy deep, dark amber color. Aroma is hops, orange, and oak. Smells absolutely fantastic! Heavy palate. Flavor is the same. Nice and hoppy, yet citrusy, earthy and delicious. Leaves a bittersweet citrus finish. I donít taste any wasabi in this but there is a little heat after a while.

Lost review from last fall. Surprisingly dark, though it was dark in the restaurant so couldnít tell how red. Unusual herbal aroma. Light wasabi heat in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazed amber color with white head, quite beautiful. A nice floral aroma. Floral hop (distinctive DFH) flavor, almost fruity, with just a touch of heat in the end.

750ml, was not crazy about this one. earthy bitterness, not a lot of wasabi but it makes itself a bit more evident as beer warms. OK

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from State Line, 1/11/15, Bottled 5/15/14
Aroma: The aroma is citrus and floral, some wasabi, spice notes, and a good bit of earth as well
Appearance: A murky reddish color with a smallish bubbly beige colored head and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is fairly balanced between the wasabi, the sweet malts, and a light bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, with a softer carbonation, well hidden ABV, and a smooth, spicy finish
Perhaps the hops have faded a bit (since this bottle is more than half a year past bottling), but I enjoyed what this beer has developed into. The wasabi component of the flavor actually works pretty well, you can tell it is there, but it doesnít completely overpower the rest of this beerís components. Iím not sure the combination would ever be a favorite of mine personally, but the whole thing feels very well crafted. Iíve happily enjoyed a good portion of the bottle, and Iím plenty happy to finish off the rest.
