Pours a clear golden color with about 2 fingers of white head that fades very quickly. Aroma is spices, riesling, and mead. Taste is pilsner, chardonnay, and a unique finish that reminds me of orange pez. Nice bitterness to play off of the sweetness. This is unique to be sure, but I am glad that I only bought one bottle. Very good, and this should be on everyones bucket list.

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 (62) - 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 (5271) - 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 (266) - 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.

swhbh (6) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016 does not count
Pours gold-orange with thin white head that dissipates, but leaves a ring. Smells sweet, there are aromas of honey and grapes, but it also has some Tripel type aromas to it. Mouthful is medium-full with some carbonation that dulled the more I drank. Tastes malty, sweet with honey, grapes, and spices I cant place. It also has a dry finish. It is a good, interesting beer with qualities of wine, tripels & barley wine all at play.

Smell of malt, barley, grape. Well balanced taste, somewhat sweet & sour with malt, white wine, saffron spice. Somewhat tannin and thick. Very good overall.

Pours hazy orange with thin white head. Aroma of honey and grapes, some yellow fruits. Taste is sweet honey, white grapes, malt. Alcohol warms, full bodied, soft carbonation. Really interesting.
