This was very mild for a Dogfishhead, but still very good. I’m used to funky flavours from them, and those it ain’t, but it’s a nice golden ale with a thin head.

Aroma: Grapes and Grain Appearance: Golden, clear, nice Taste: Is it wine, beer, or meade? Its good in small amounts Palate: Much like light wine on palate Overall: Really enjoyed first swallow. By end of bottle was done. Will drink again, yet one is enough during a session.

Bottle. A- Honey, malty, grape must. A- Gold color, clear liquid, white head. T- Honey, grapes. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Lots of honey and definitely no saffron. A touch boozy too. A pretty mild beer but back in King Midas day this wouldve been great!

john44 (2928) - 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 (549) - 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 (571) - 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 (100) - 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 (5557) - 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.
