1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
I seriously canít remember the last time I was more disappointed with a beer. Iím sure its happened but this one has to rank up there as one of the most disappointing ones ever. Iím normally somewhat forgiving of DFH in their attempts at experimentation, but sometimes you have to stop and realize youíve just produced something awful and just dump it, donít bottle it, pretend its an interesting experiment and foist it on an unexpecting public. Thatís the sort of thing that makes people stop buying your beer. You want me to stop buying DFH altogether? Cuz thatís how you get me to stop buying DFH altogether. Oh wait, you know what? The last time I was this disappointed was 7 years ago when I bought DFH Fort. Man, really. Oh and the review? Stale wine and cigarette butts. That is accurate and the beer doesnít otherwise deserve more analysis than that. Somebody deserves to get kicked in the nuts for this.

Floral.....muted....nothing too special about this ale save its good mix of fruit into an ale without being obvious.

Pinkish amber body, frothy white head. Aroma is wine, light malt, spruce, faint strawberry. Taste is very light malt, faint grape, lemon, peach, hops bitter finish. Palate is very light, carbonation moderate and very fine. Very refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours almost burgundy with slight head. Citrus notes of an IPA but has a wine like finish. The wine taste isnít over powering though. Alcohol is disguised well too. Smooth beer but the grape takes away from what would likely be another very fine dfh IPA

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Has a nice red amber color with a head that goes away fairly quick. Has a nice hoppy sweet aroma. Definitely has a end finish of grape but does not take away from the normal 60 minute clean hop finish. Overall a very good beer

Deep brown red color with small off white head. Aroma: slightly acidic grape character, hops, and a sweet malt body. Taste is slightly sour with red grape character mixed with some sweet hippy notes. A bit weird but tasty!

Pours a ruby red with a slight purple tint. White head with a tiny of purple. Aroma is light but almost a red wine smell. Flavor is light and clean. Little bitterness, and a nice touch with the grapes very nice.
