Easy drinking, not bitter. Flavors of grape and honey, but not overpoweringly sweet. Hard pressed to find a beer with a higher ABV and lower IBU.

T: Light honey, some skunk. Grape.
F: Crisp, a little acidic bite.

force a golden honey color, clear, not much head.
Smells of earth tones, pear, and Heather.
Tastes of white grape, honey and spice in the background.
Mouth feel is crisp.
Not a bad offering!

Honey and grape on the nose with some hints of the advertised spices. Fermented honey flavor plus butter, allspice, and raisins.

Could have been a dud bottle, this was bought in Australia, and was rather old.

This has got to be the smoothest beer to have ever been poured down. I wasn't too excited about the taste though, so it was a disappointment. I would have loved more grape flavor.

Pours a light copper with a minimal head. Mostly clear. Has a very herby, earthy sweet smell that reminds me of a mead, but not as heavy. Very honey forward in flavor with a muscadine grape in the back. Not too spicy and I really don't get too much saffron.

It feels a little oily on the tongue, but not in a bad way.

Overall, it's nice and different, but not something I'd go out of my way to get.

Not a big fan of the sweetness. I love Dogfish and I was excited about the line of "ancient" beers. Not my thing with the honey but it was pleasing to the eye and had a nice aroma.
