3.03/5 rDev -18.8%
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass..
A. Golden straw colored, slight head on pour that quickly dissipated to a thin film. Minimal lacing
S. no discernible beer character, slight funk which I am guessing is their spices, but saffron? Not picking it up
T. Definitely taste the body of the Muscat grapes, which is a grape I have a strong attraction too.
M. Thinner than I expected for a 9 above brew. Minimal carbonation, aftertaste lingers for quite awhile. It's not an unpleasant aftertaste, just lingering..
O. An unusual beer, not quite sure how to classify. Would I drink it again, probably but wouldn't be my first choice. If your in the mood for something different, this is it!

4.05/5 rDev +8.6%
This beer is interesting in the sense that it is really impossible to rate. It's based off an ancient beer, it's in it's own category, so really there's no other beer to gauge it against.
So I'll just hit the important parts,
S: the aroma was nothing special, kinda bland.
T: was thick and tasted almost more like wine with the very strong flavors of grape and honey, but tastes exactly like I would think an ancient beer to be like, not exactly a beer but not exactly a wine.
M: taking into account the process of how I took the taste again the mouth feel was great, it was smooth and had no indication of the fact that it was a 9% beer.
O: was highly impressed with this beer as a beer, it was ok but for wthat DFH was going for it was easily a 5. So it becomes a 4. It's beers like this and breweries like this that are the reason why I'm excited to try a new beer everytime I go somewhere. I would definitely have this beer again.
