WLG423 (201) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Golden in color and clear with a light dusting of head. Aromas of grapes, grass, dough, toast and a little alcohol. A quickly dissipating carbonated mouthfeel with a bitter-sweet grape flavor that quickly gives way to an acidic and dry finish. Flavors and character somewhere between a white wine and a beer. Pretty neat.

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.

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.

nazbion (297) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - NOV 1, 2016
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.

PhillyCraft (6283) - 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 (505) - .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.
