Cellar Temp. Another beer from planet X. Aroma is skanky saison. Absolute no head whatsoever, yet it is bubbling like crazy. Settle in get used to it. Yes, you are a hippie at a gwar concert. Just hold on. OK, it is actually not bad. Rather sweet. Thick mouth feel for the clearest beer on earth! These people are magicians. It is sort of like a caramel-y or honey Riesling. DFH confuses and astounds me. In the end this is a good drink.

Packaged on 10/04. Aroma: some sort of honey. Is that heather honey? Very strong honey aroma. Also hints of white wine (pinot grigio). Very tantilizing. Appearance: slightly hazy copper color with a white bubbly head that dissapated by the time I typed this in. Pretty good lacing. Slow carbonation. Flavor: very original flavor. ++ for that. Ive had this a couple of times before and have finally decided to rate it. Let the taste hit various parts of the tongue. I get barley/grains at the back of the tongue. Some sort of weird sweetness at the front. Honey? But from what flowers? The aroma had kind of a heather honey scent. I dont know what white Muscat grapes taste like... saffron, hmm. Never had that in beer before. Flavor is a bit perfumy. Palate: alcohol with the swallow. (Not overpowerful). Sweet and dry at the same time. I like this one.

Solid for what it is. Not up my alley. Incredibly sweet. An interesting mead/white wine flavor in it. Interesting beer; interesting idea.

Aurelius (5179) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2005
A meady, graham cracker aroma. A good label, especially for DFH which is usually not too original in their presentation. Intense gold, very clear beer. Sweet, clear flavor with lots of floral/muscadine qualities. A crackery caste to the overall sweetness - dry malting somehow. This may be the most drinkable DFH beer that Ive had to date. The ABV is well-hidden. There was something about the beer that made me want to break out the swiss cheese -- it really made a good compliment, in a microbial extravaganza. The only minor complaint that I had was the coating, alcoholic cough-syrup like palate that a lot of meads have.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Pours a hazy golden honey color. Aroma is sweet and full of spices and fruits. Flavor is very sweet, lots of honey and sweet malts. Slightly less carbonation, and a smooth palate round this one out. Thanks to Brock Landers for this brew!

Yrllow gold color. Aromas are grapes, wine, honey, and malt. Flavors sweet malt, grapes, wine, honey and it has a rather heavy body. Very unique.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Sweet, fruity raisin aroma. Pours a perfect, unassuming gold with a thin head and just the right amount of bubbles. Flavor explodes on the palate with raisins, grapes, honey, and spice. Silky smooth, very oily and light bodied with a punch of alcohol and barley late. Touch of salt and hops at the end. Overall very good, although Id agree with my previous RateBeerian that it needs a bit of bitterness at the end to balace everything out. Overall, unique and quite good - would buy again.
