3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at DFB. It poured a clear and pale yellow with no head or carbonation. The aroma was thick with semisweet honey and earthyness. Taste of honey came with sweet fruit and a hint of sourness and alcohol. The finish was dry and short lived. Reminiscent of a good chardonay but with carbonation. It is worth drinking one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An earthy delight, one of the best products ever produced in the tiny restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. Deep golden pour with russet highlighting. A small white head fades fast, speckled dots of lace left in tis wake. The aroma is of dried, crystallized honey, ground nut paste, honeysuckle flowers, cinnamon, peppers and citrus peel. A light and wet earth note precedes each component. The flavor is at first sweet and soon after turns earhty and dusty. Mild acidity and light bitter honey notes take hold for the remainder of the quaff. Fruit is undefined but everpresent, as are nutty and grain notes. The finish is dry, warming, with honey and earth lingering, as well as a touch of flora. Mouthfeel is light bodied, refreshing and smooth as ice. Very, very good. I’d love to see this reproduced.

[First pour from the keg] Poured a golden color with a medium sized, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey, spices, flowers, and faint nuts. Taste of sweet honey up front, turning earthy, some more nuts, turning dry, earthy, and fruity, with some faint chardonnay grapes. Just a touch of alcohol in the finish. The keg kicked in under an hour tonight!
