When I first started homebrewing I wanted to clone this beer just because it sounded awesome. Then I bought the beer to actually try it and realized there was no way I was going to do it without many more years under my belt. Got a chance to check it out again on tap at the Old Toad the other night though.
Pours a light yellow, fizzy with alcohol. Aroma of light grapes and slight honey. Reminds me a lot of Champagne or a grape-y saison in the taste. Very dry but with lots of flavor. I'd say this is my beer substitue for champagne or wine, should I ever need to have one. A lot of the more astringent grape flavors combined with a honey sweetness and a light malt base to dry it out. Really great combo.

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.

Smells of white grapes and malt with a small amount of saffron to follow. Tasting it the grape is the strongest with hints of honey and saffron. The malt does come through after a few sips. After a while I feel as I have been drinking white wine as well. The finish is crisp and has a aftertaste of grapes. I would buy again.
