2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 75cl. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a white head. Spiced aroma with some cellar notes and dried fruits. Berry hints, Medium to full body, very soft on the palate. Some tea hints. The flavor has pale malt notes, dried fruits and tea. Herbs. Well, it’s interesting, that’s for sure, but it’s definitely not my kind of beer, sort of blending good and bad beer. 130804

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark clear orange pour some head. Aroma of dough, sesame, grapes, date sugar. Tastes very wheaty, cinnamon raisin bread. Bold flavors that I’d usually expect to find in a dubbel or quad are present, but lightly applied in this very refined brew. Palate is full and smooth and quickly recedes like oatmeal, but the effervescence and regular abv make it quite refreshing. Aftertaste of honey, date sugar, and savory spice. Underrated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma, honey, and fruit in the aroma. Flavor is sweet with fruit and cinnamon, with more of the same in the finish. Interesting concept, but really nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is earthy and lots of chamomile. Taste is spicy with some sweet undertones, very interesting as it is almost tangy. Light bodied with a slick texture. Interesting, very strong on the chamomile.

25.8 oz bottle - pours goldish-orange with diminishing medium white head. Strong sweet fruit aromas on the nose, plums, apricots, and bready yeasty notes. Little bit of clove. Sweet malt. Medium-full bodied. Definitely strangish. Not a returner.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Was super excited to find this beer in the summer of 2012 while on vacation in Virginia. Split the 750ml bottle with friends. Very different brew, but that’s what the boys at DFH do.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at craft.. Not my thing at all. Pours yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has some honey notes but not much action. The taste is really light with no discernable direction. A really boring brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on 5/11/13 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours clear copper orange with a very thick, fizzy white head that recedes quickly to thin lace. It almost looks like a sparkling wine with tiny bubbles continuing to quickly rush to the top. The nose is nutty and interesting, with some toasted hazelnut, almond, honey, and just a touch of green bitterness. The flavor is a touch sweeter than expected with the honey and varied nuttiness, but no real perceivable bitterness. The body is light with almost sparkling carbonation and a medium nutty almond finish.
