john44 (2698) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle. Clear orangey amber in colour. Vinous; grapes. Fruity; tropical fruits. Malty; sweet malts, grainy, honey. Spices; saffron, peppery. Smooth and slightly syrupy. Alcohol very well disguised. Sweet fruity and malty throughout; with the grapes and honey dominant. Dry finish. Unique beer. Lovely Traditional Ale! (2009-12)

Skarecrow (499) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 1, 2017
12 Fl oz bottle bottled 08/18/16 Hazy amber with good head and carbonation (looked great in the glass). Aroma is yeast, soggy bread and grape fruit. Slight sourness. The palate was quite cardboardy followed by a smooth (if a little cloying re sweetness) alcoholic finish. The oxidation let things down which surprised me given it was only six months old. Nothing special though a fresher version might have gotten a higher rating.

33 cl bottled on 05/02/2011 - So 5,5 yrs old, this beer aged very well. Too bad I have only this one. Very smooth!

scotchzombie (563) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Hazy gold small white head. Aroma mild but nice - white grape, saffron, honey. Taste very much follows. Funky grapes with a touch of seasoned honey. Still, it's beer - with elements of mead and wine. Interesting but I wouldn't want more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Faathoven (85) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - DEC 29, 2016
Pours amber with whitish head. Aroma is honey for days, sweet malts and a little spicy. Flavour of honey again, caramel malts, spices (saffron?) and a bit bitter in the end. Could be better in my opinion, with more character. Anyway a pretty one to choose for dessert.

luttonm (5448) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle in Seattle. White soft ring, rich golden and bright. Fruity rich nose, golden raisin. Seems like a bright, rich tripel more than anything. I like the white grape funk. Creamy, with some spicy alcohol notes. A bit heavy and sweet. Nice, not too subtle. ok spice, some ester.

Transferring from old rating system. No tasting notes apparently. I had it a very long time ago...but was not more impressed that an average score.

This is certainly an interesting beer. Lots of fruit flavors are evident, though Im not necessarily sure which ones. There is also a weird spiciness, though not what youd expect from something Belgian or anything like that. Its certainly interesting, and I cant say Ive had anything else like it, but in the end it just isnt that good.

17Beer (286) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Sour bread and yeast aromas. Pours a rich clear gold with a dense white head of tiny bubbles. Round sweet dried fruit and honey flavors. Good carbonation and a short fizzy finish with yeast notes. Very interesting but the style isnt one that Id like to drink a lot of. Super interesting after all.
