A: Very translucent, especially for a 9% beer. Dark golden
S: Smells pretty alcoholic. I can't smell the saffron, but it smells like a wine or a barleywine beer
T: Does not taste as alcoholic as it smells. I can taste the saffron. Other tastes are white grapes, coriander and a decent amount of barley
M: Nicely carbonated, but I wish this beer was more unfiltered. Has a a more viscous consistency than the appearance gives off
O: A good beer, but nothing great. I appreciate the taste of saffron, but this beer was quite expensive for me ($5 for a 12 oz. bottle at my local bottle shop) and it was not as special as a lot of people make it out to be. Definitely worth trying, but nothing special besides its high alcohol content and its white grape based taste
