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.

Bottle Vero Beach Fl ABC. Light gold in color and clear with thin head. Aroma make me think of white wine (white grapes) and orange blossom honey. Light bodied, sweet and balanced with no strong alcohol taste for being 9%. " between wine and mead" is about as accurate as you can get with this sweet beer.

12oz bottle, found at a grocery store in Moncks Corner. Hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Raisins, grapes, prunes, mid-palate sweetness, ginger, wine. Full bodied with evident alcohol. Drying finish. Take some time with this one, unusual but very good.

Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-11 getrunken. Wird wohl mit weiße Muskattrauben, Honig und Safran gebraut. Klingt spannend und schmeckt auch echt gut. Allerdings wirkt es recht schnell etwas langweilig. Aber das ist heulen auf hohen Niveau.

commonmac (1338) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2017
12oz bottle shared by commonshawn. Combined in Moeder Lambic snifter glass. Golden orange color with a quick to dissipate white head. Nose is mostly bringing to mind sweet malty notes with a little but of a dark fruit, wine like presence. Taste follows suit with a sugary, malty sweetness. Kind of an odd sticky and syrupy feeling. Some dark fruit. I can see why the description implies a wine drinker would venture down its path. Alcohol burn towards the end. A few too many touches of these will definitely sneak up on you.

Beese (3210) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2017
Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza, Canada Water. Really lovely and fruity beer. Soft fruit and some grain in the flavour.
