From the older bottle kept in the basement for years, it poured a clear honey yellow color with a tiny white head that slowly reduced and actually had lacing. The nose gets a dose of honey and possibly some grapes and spice. Taste follows nose, with the smooth honey hitting first, followed by the grape.

It doesn't smell ancient.  It smells fruity and hoppy with malts in the background. Like a sweet smelling IPA.

It's bitter up front and a little spicy somehow.  Then the bready malts are really strong.  It is also fruity the entire time.

It's a medium mouthfeel with a normal amount of carbonation.  The finish tastes like a pastry, both like bread and honey.

It's pretty damn good, not as exotic as the description promises (not a hint of saffron).  It's an interesting beer. I give it a 4.7 out of 6.

Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Smells of honey, white grape juice & grains; subtle boozy aroma. Taste follows the nose, this really reminds me of white grape juice that is carbonated, it is good though. Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth finish. Very interesting brew, I was happy to try it, but I don't think I would purchase again.

Opaque, deep amber appearance with a small head and very little lacing. Sweet, honeyish aroma with varying degrees of maltiness. Flavor reintroduces the sweetness, as well as soft fruit (grapes, kiwi) and spice (particularly in the aftertaste). Vinous, medium-to-full bodied mouthfeel; long lasting finish.
