Gold and hazy body. The head dissolves fast and leaves no trace.

Smells of white grapes, allspice, and honey.

The taste is sweet white grapes, like a reisling. Finishes with herbal notes and allspice.

Mouthfeel is sweet up front but finishes slightly dry. Body is medium to light with prickly carbonation.

It's an interesting beer to try once, but not something I'd want to drink more than one of. The spice thing is not my style.

12oz bottle into tulip.

A - Ultra clear golden copper with a small white head.

S - Light sweet malt, white grapes, honey, herbal spice.

T - Mildly sweet bready malt, grape juice, subtle honey and spice. A light bitterness on the finish.

M - Smooth, light-medium body, crisp and refreshing. Dry finish.

O - An interesting beer for sure. There is a nice white wine character throughout. Very easy to drink, refreshing and flavorful.

The nose is light and sweet with notes of honey and white wine up front that fade into a caramel-esque sticky sweetness. I've used the word sweet twice but it doesn't smell overpoweringly sweet, it actually smells kind of dry but there is a sticky sweetness throughout the whole smell, probably from the honey. It actually smells very similar to another Ancient Ale, Chateau Jiahu. The taste is slightly sweet with grapes, apples and pears blending nicely with a touch of booziness and fading into a sweet but dry finish. The body is very light but it has some heft to it and the alcohol heat doesn't kick in until the sip has settled in your stomach. This is one of their best Ancient Ales. I put two of my 4-pack away to age a bit and see where it goes.
