3.73/5 rDev -3.1%
A- Somewhat cloudy orange colored body with a thin white head.
S- Honey, cocoa, citrus, spices, hint of chile.
T- Honey definitely comes through first with a strong ginger-like taste as well. A slight chile taste comes in the middle, with some chocolate powder in the finish. Surprisingly subtle flavors besides honey.
M- Medium body, medium carbonation, good sipper.
O- Nice beer, but nothing stands out. Definitely not chile-forward.

Poured from bottle into my Duvel tulip glass.
I must say that this is the last beer we tried during a nights tasting, I was pretty well along into the stages of drunkeness, and I'm going to copy my notes exact because I just now reread them and they're pretty fantastic.
Appearance - ancient hefeweizen
Smell - faint honey
Taste - it tastes like the drink of the gods. Honey, cocoa, chile powder.
Mouthfeel - smooth and chunky sediment.
Overall - I very much enjoyed this beer and look forward to having it again!

Poured into a standard tulip glass
A: A murky orange color, lots of microbubbles streaming up, no head retention.
S: Tons of honey is immediate, bits of cocoa on the back end with just a hint of chilies after the beer warmed up.
T: Well Balanced, nothing too complex but the flavors present were very nice. The honey and chilies really pull through, just a bit of spices with some bread on the palate.
M: Lots of carbonation, medium bodied feel.
D: Very nice, very smooth, well balanced, very much enjoyed.

The aroma contains notes of chocolate chilies, grass, and some light pale lager aromas. It pours a slightly hazy amber with lots of fine sediment and a large yellow-tinged creamy head. The flavor starts with some light chocolate and sweet lager flavors. The chilies are noticeable in the background that slightly increases in the finish and mixes with some faint grassiness. Medium-bodied with light carbonation.

Bought several months ago at spartan spirits, kinda pricey so wanted to save it for a special occasion. I believe this week warrants that... tests Wednesday, thursday and the GRE this morning, what a hell week.
A&S: transparent light orange/yellow colored head comes in pretty light. not very lively and not much head (very fizz and white but dies really quick). Lots of unfiltered particles on the bottom. the smell is very tropical tasting: honey, citrus, and some spices.
T&M: Going into this beer I wasn't sure quite what to expect as far as the chocolate tones, i knew they were going to be different but not sure how. lots of complexities to this one. upfront im getting a lot of white wine. Midway through the taste and after sometime for warming im getting more of the chile and honey tastes. Alcohol and a light hint of coco in the back end.
Overall: I'm liking the idea of dogfish head ancient brew series, and I'm going to give this beer a nod of approval mostly because it tastes like nothing I've ever had before, the only down side is this beer was quite expensive in my neck of the woods, I don't know how it was priced elsewhere but here I was looking at over 15 for a bottle.
