2.78/5 rDev -28%
Had on draft at DFH restaurant in Gaithersburg
A: clear, light yellow; creamy thin head; nice lacing
S: malt, grapes; relatively thin smell
T: carbonated, dry chardonnay; sour and sharp; bold, abrasive; few hops, little body or complexity
The experiment is wild but not offensive; I won't return to this one, though

2.83/5 rDev -26.7%
750 mL bottle poured into a tumbler. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Nearly clear dark yellow. White head and nice lacing.
Smell - Musty fruity aroma. Grape juice, specifically. Strong white wine presence.
Taste - Sweet as hell. Much more white wine flavor. Pilsner malt before a touch of bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Immensely sweet. It hints that it might dry out a bit into a musty fruity finish, but nowhere near it yet.
Overall - Hardly a saison, but I guess that's what Dogfish does. Really heavy and winey. Only a little bit of what I'd call beer behind the sugars.
