look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Presentation: Very cool label with attractive colors and graphics. Gives brewery info, web info, a small description of the beer, and ABV info. Neck label has DFH logo. Part of DFH Ancient Ales series. Bottled on date(11/21/12)

Appearance: I poured Midas Touch from its 12oz glass bottle into a 13oz flute. Midas touch poured out a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a 3 finger off white dense foam head. Head retention was 4min 13sec before fading into a thick coating and ring. Nice lacing. 4/5

Smell/Aroma: Smells of a floral aroma with hints of white grape and honey. Very herbal with a slightly earthy tone and hints of saffron, 4/5

Flavor/Taste: Huge hints of honey on the front end along with a hint of white grape juice. Mid point is filled with strong saffron and herbal tones complimented with a nice floral accent. Finishes semi tart with a nice alcohol bite. 3.75/5

MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied smooth and crisp with a fairly high amount of carbonation. Different but drinkable. 3.75/5

Overall/Comments: A completely different beer than I have ever had before. I really how DFH experiments and brings different beer experiences to the craft beer drinker. This beer was pretty light in nature and reminds me of a carbonated mead. Consumed 3/24/13. Classified as a Herbal/Spiced Beer at 9% ABV. 3.75/5
