From notes 8/23/13: Pours a clear orange honey gold producing 2 fingers of off-white, moderately lasting head that leaves only a little lace. Aroma is sweet and dry, honey, cereal, muscadine grape, clove and thin banana. Taste is sweet with honey, muscadine grape, other fruity hints, Belgian yeast character clove, a little alcohol and a metallic hint. Spicy finish, sweet aftertaste. Crisp flavors. I'm not enough of a grape man to recognize Muscat grapes but this Southern boy knows his muscadine grapes (a species native to the southeastern/south-central U.S. and it sure presents muscadine-like elements in both the nose and mouth. Alcohol while detectable is well hidden. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied with low carbonation, smooth but a little syrupy and tongue clinging.

Look: Cloudy, dark yellow with a thin white head.

Smell: Malt, sweet wine, apples.

Taste: Semi-sweet white wine, mild wheat malt, a sort of dryness without hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, high carbonation.

Overall: Very different, but not so different as to be undrinkable or scare away newbies. This might actually be a good beer for someone who's not used to drinking it.

I was really pleasantly surprised by this beer considering I really am not a fan of barley wine or wine in general. I smell and taste grape, honey, malt, and some old wheat or barley in there. Really interesting beer that is definitely worth a try. Especially if you like wine

Honey, grape, and malt. The ancients had good taste in booze.
