2010 Bottle in the hotel room in DC - Pours a hazy deep golden with a frothy off white head...aroma is very malty and grain forward, very light herbal spice with some fruuity esters as well...flavour is similar, sweet gritty barley, dry white vinous grapes, honey and alcohol...hated this the first time I had it and now I really like it, this would be an awesome fall beer...

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.

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.

PhillyCraft (6272) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
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.

bulldogops (2320) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
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 (504) - .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 (805) - 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.
