Golden with a large white head. yeasty malt and honey aroma. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, honey sweetness, and some apple and grape notes. definately has some wine like characteristics, but overall a decent beer.

Golden amber w/ a frothy, diminishing cream coloured head. Aroma is malty w/ notes of apple, grape, & honey. Thick, syrupy feel. Flavour is malty (bread, cookie dough), fruity (apple, grape) & sugary sweet (maple, honey). Finish is dry & warming but a touch medicinal.

Gold-purple pour. Aroma is a malty grape. Sweet. After the pour, the alchohol seemingly danced about. Honey is the dominant feature here with other fruits. Sweet and enjoyable. Very smooth ALchohol warms the aftertaste.

Radek Kliber (7290) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 24, 2005
Gold looking ale with rather small head. Aroma is combination of yeast and malt, alcohol is present as well but behind rest which is fine with me. Light white grape character, warming alcohol. Potent beer but pleasant to drink nether less. It is better than it looks on the paper from my description.

Winey aroma, lace, hoppy plumb white grape content. Alcohol drying that cleas the palate. Meadiness. If I want fruit wine, I will have that. If I want mead, I will obtain that. Apple taste on finish. I guess unique with some dinner. OK, had it. Thanks JoeyC.

Obtained this in a trade with Jonathan3485. Pours beautiful golden color with a decent white head that dissipates to a film and laces the glass a little on the way down. Aroma is honey and maybe a little apple. Flavor is quite sweet and fruity. You can definitely taste the honey and some grape flavor comes through as well. I can say that this was the most wine-like brew Ive ever had. On the palate it is very full for a beer of its color. I think the cool thing about this beer is that it is golden with this much flavor. Still it wasnt my favorite flavor combination it was a little sweet for my taste.

I dont like this beer at all, I brewed some myself and tasted just the same. Way too sweet with the alcohol makes it taste like a really cheap wine. yuck! for me but you may like that kind of thing.
