3.98/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Golden pale yellow with nice amount of bubbles with an off-white head.

S: Sweet. Fruity. Malty. Almost a champagne smell with hints of vanilla.

T: Rush of spice, with a malty lingering finish. Not off-putting, though. Honey? Vanilla? A sweet champagne taste.

M: Medium to think body -- a bit syrupy when it first hits the tongue.

O: I do like this beer. Just not quite my cup of tea. Definite honey flavors, but doesn't taste of Mead like Port City Tidings. Grapes are giving it the champagne taste. Very good sipping beer. Would probably drink again for a change of pace. Would probably give it a 4.2 out of 5.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Considering the price I paid I was hoping for a beverage with "The Midas Touch". Instead I got something that was mediocre at best. Pours out a hazy yellow with a minimal head and very little retention. The smell actually reminded me of adjuncts, not malt or hops. The taste was even on the "hot" side, particularly after the beer warmed a bit and the mouth feel average at best with poor carbonation. Overall it was OK, but just marginally. I am sorry I bought a 4 pack and will be going back to 90 Minute IPA if I want something from DFH. This is not a beer that is worth 3+ bucks a bottle at retail.
