Vtg blackberry log, Bottle. Amber color with medium sized 2 finger head. Notes of honey, wine, pepper, saffron, and grape candy. You can really taste the 9 percent. Lots of spicy booze and heat which is DogfishHeads trademark. Medium to fuller mouthfeel on this Traditional ale.

Rating #2162 - 2015.11.12 - Bottle from BevMo - Pours a golden color. thin head. Unreal aroma of honey, white wine, saffron. Lots of sweetness, soft fruit, peach, grape tempered with the floral honey and the spice of the saffron Blown away, this is a challenging beer to deconstruct in terms of depth of character and complexity.

mrjaxson (514) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Pours to a moderate head that dissipates quickly, revealing an aroma that is ever-so-delicate ripples (really, not being effusive here) of honey and grass. Taste is a balanced sweetness that makes this drift in the direction of a light-bodied mead. Long, full finish thats nothing like an IPA or Chardonnay (despite the marketing language). Bottle dated Jan. 23, 2016, so about 9 months from bottling to consumption.

tfontana (840) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Andover Liquors. Aroma is malt base with grapes/fruit. Appearance is beautiful, clear gold with slight orange, nice sparkle, 1/2 finger-width fizzy white head with poor retention and no lacing. Taste is moderately sweet with slightly astringent taste (saffron?), honey and grape. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with lively carbonation and fairly dry finish. Overall, an interesting beer with some novel ingredients used successfully.

Steverus0 (263) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Pours a clear, rusty gold. Minimal head. Sweet grape aroma. Sweet esters coat the tongue while barley and honey add just a hint of bite. Saffron rounds out a full cast of characters and delivers a smooth, mellow finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
