A: bright golden yellow straw in color. quite transparent

S: very aromatic, filled with spices and honey infused fruit. Yeasty bread notes. quite enticing. definitely malt forward and the sliver of grapiness is definitely from the grapes.

T: pronounced sweetness and noticeable alcohol. The taste is definitely not the aroma and visa versa. Strange taste that so malty and honeyed its hard to imagine this beer making it on the open market but if anyone can pull this one off is Dogfishhead. Finish is grainy and slight grapey sweet.

M: Medium to full bodied with a slight oily texture and moderate carbonation. off dry finish

O: This beer is strange to say the least but nevertheless its extremely cool for the one of the most respected breweries to resurrect this ancient style. I drink this and daydream I'm king midas drinking with my many wives and not worrying bout much. This beer is hardly a considered a beer by today's standards and is more closely related to a mead or alcoholic concoction of some sort. love it all the same

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.
