Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent bronze with off-white lacing. Smells solid; dark fruit, spices, and what seems like Belgian yeast; maybe a bit of toastiness too. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Pretty good. mnurda (1285) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottled sample from Specks in San Antonio. Pours pinkish with minimal head. Tough to describe this one as they were so many flavours, pomegranate, honey, etc... Very complex Very interesting . alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bronze and clear, nothing special about the head or lacing, in fact there wasn’t much notable there.
Appearance aside, the typical dogfish head aroma and flavor come through with the usual elevated expected value. Fruit and honey come through immediately and are the natural descriptions for this beer, but there’s also a somewhat funky, earthy, floral component that’s hard to put my finger on. It may be this indescribable, yet awesomely delicious aspect of DFH ales that makes me love this brewery so much.
Body is really pretty light considering the fairly ample alcohol content and full flavor. Drinks way too easy. Always luv DFH ales.

Pours a dark amber with minimal white head. Smells of honey and fruit with some earthiness. Tastes sweet like juice but definitely not too sweet. Well done.

Pours an orange red color with a medium sized foamy off white head. Notes of peanut butter, dirt, yeast, brown sugar, and fruit.

Bottle: pours light brown with a fizzy white head that quickly disappears, aroma of honey, taste is sweet, with a nice light warming finish. Reminds me a little bit of Bier de Miel. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2013

Pour on tap at Black Bottle, clear reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of flour, big nutty floury notes, very odd, slight earth, slight red and dark fruits, hints of herbal notes, don’t know what to make of this. Taste is very flour forward, some nuts, cocoa, hints of herbs into some red and dark fruit, slight earth, finishing sweet, bitter. dfinney23 (3394) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Pours clear copper with a thin fizzy head. Aroma of fruit, honey and spices. Taste is oddly not that sweet given fruit and honey that’s still quite prevalent. Certainly unusual. UncleKorm (1330) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap deep orange hue w/ fully diminishing head. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a faint bitter finish. Tastes are honey, dried apricot, lemon, cranberry, and straw. Big bodied, soft carbonation, and a crisp finish.
