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.

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.

Zilverenmaan (334) - 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.

Bottle Vero Beach Fl ABC. Light gold in color and clear with thin head. Aroma make me think of white wine (white grapes) and orange blossom honey. Light bodied, sweet and balanced with no strong alcohol taste for being 9%. " between wine and mead" is about as accurate as you can get with this sweet beer.

Rami Rami is drinking a Midas Touch by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery at Kamienica Hoża 41 No troche jak utleniona dipa ze sladem winogron i bez szafranu. Miod dominuje. Ale nie jak w braggocie tylko jak z utlenienia... alko schowa

Bacchus66 (1073) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2017
12oz bottle, found at a grocery store in Moncks Corner. Hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Raisins, grapes, prunes, mid-palate sweetness, ginger, wine. Full bodied with evident alcohol. Drying finish. Take some time with this one, unusual but very good.

2.8
dorain (750) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-11 getrunken. Wird wohl mit weiße Muskattrauben, Honig und Safran gebraut. Klingt spannend und schmeckt auch echt gut. Allerdings wirkt es recht schnell etwas langweilig. Aber das ist heulen auf hohen Niveau.
