Dogfish head
original
refined feel
stretching the limits
of what ale can be real-
exotic dry grape wine,
honey sugar / saffron scent
bit of malt backbone
puts the ale into it

pours a light tan orange
with no head or lace
looks like a wine
rising bubbles give way

to that special grape scent
with mysterious tinge
of the saffron or honey
slight alcohol singe

mouthefeel:
good
there's carbonation,
and also a stagnant feel
a hybrid without doubt;
honey wine tart grape floral feel

drink-ability,
is suprisingly well
the flavors don't overwhelm
and blend very well
