Bottled on 3/26/09....sampled on 7/21/09- This reminded me more of a mead than a beer. Was told that it kind of was like wine, which it was a bit in flavor, but I found it be more like a strong honey beer. Light brown, honey colored appearance….maybe a little on the golden side. Not much carbonation or head. As I drank a few more sips I started to notice the grapes, which gave me that “white whine feel”. Still meadish to me as the other flavors prevailed over the grapes, which I liked. I’m not a big wine fan, and was afraid this would be a bit over the top for me. Not one of my favorites by DFH, but I would try again when in the mood for something different.

aromatics of grape and slight pine/earthy notes, appears golden amber in color, has a small white head, tastes of grape, almost white wine-like, also notes of something earthy that i couldn't place, a well rounded flavor that isn't too sweet or bitter, its palate is thick, creating a long lasting finish of pine and slight grape

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2018 Pours a clear golden. Smells like grape hard candy. Based on the smell, I thought the beer would be too sweet but it is well balanced and delicious. The grape is present but not too powerful. A really nice after taste and very little bitterness.

Pours a nice clear orange. Smell is honey and some yeasty breadiness. Taste is quite sweet with the honey, but excellent malt flavors dominate. The grapes give a nice, bright dimension. The body is light-medium. The alcohol is well-hidden. It all comes together nicely thanks to the malt profile.

ciocanelu (3309) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 3, 2018
Slightly hazy orange color with beige head. Aroma has sweet, syrupy malt, candied tangerines and resiny hops. Taste is bittersweet with dried fruits, candied apricot, bitter orange peel on the finish. Medium body with medium to light carbonation. Tasty, complex, well hidden ABV.

ronaldtheriot (2075) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - FEB 22, 2018
Midas Touch has a medium, white head, a yellow, hazy appearance, some bubbles, and not much glass lacing. Aroma is of odd, honey, sourdough, and spiced white bread. Taste is of those elements, with low or no bitterness. Rather heavy mouthfeel, here. Midas Touch finishes medium dry. Hard to get a handle on this one. RJT

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 It smells strongly of wine. First taste is nothing like it smells and the beer flavor stands out most with the grapes as more of an aftertaste. The aftertaste is amazing though, much like that of champagne. It's interesting to enjoy the flavor of the beer twice over that way.

Faint honey aroma with a golden appearance mead like malts complement the sugary finish.

wombat23 (2244) - Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Clear pale gold, white head. Aroma of honey, grains, bread. Taste is grains, honey, white grape, faint herbs, no saffron. Finish is sweet and grainy. Not sure about this one. Okay.

3.1
Zilverenmaan (355) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2017
Poors clear honey yellow with decent head. Aroma faint: some honey, malts. Taste slightly stronger: mostly malts and honey, some hints of muskat grapes to add some depth. MF soft. Rather unimpressive.
