Oakes (17003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2001
Light bronze; sweet and spicy. Herbal, winey, sharply dry finish; caramelly malt; alcohol flavours. Tastes good, but I doubt I could drink too much at any one time.

yngwie (16889) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2007
Bottle. Poured clear, golden, with a white head. It was quite sweet on the nose, with a little spicyness and some alcohol, as well as some dried fruits and a wee hint of pear. No trace of the honey though. The flavor was quite sweet as well, with alcohol, raisins and sugar. Quite vinous actually. The mouthfeel is full, soft and lightly warming, and the finish is quite long and sweet. I doubt they made beers as fine as this in the time of King Midas, but I like the interpretation. (070601)

brokensail (16399) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
A: The pour is a clear dark golden color with a thin white head. S: Intensely sweet like corn syrup and honey. The grapes provide additional sweetness that probably isnt really necessary. Floral and slightly spicy provide some opposition to the intense sugary character. T: Lots of sweet white grape flavor, apple juice, corn syrup and honey. There is actually a bit of caramel/malt character on the palate, too. A light floral note and just a hint of spice. M: The body is medium with a low to moderate level of carbonation. D: Despite the intense sweetness, it didnt become cloying or overbearing, which is sort of rare for a Dogfish Head beer.

MiP (15454) - Snderborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle, 9% at BBF13. Almost clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour starts off very sweet, has a citric note, perhaps from the grapes? Rather alcoholic, but has a semi-round finish. OK, but much too strong.
