Pours a clear deep golden color with a pure white half inch head. Some retention on this beer as the head dissipates quickly down to a thin layer settling on top. Very little lacing.
Aroma is mild. I am getting some hints of grape with a honey sweetness. Also getting a hint of spice. A bit musky.
Taste is interesting. Dry like a white wine with a bit of warmth from the higher abv. I get a dry white grape flavor mixed with honey. Something else is hiden in the flavor that I can't put my finger on, it might be a slight woody character. Ends with a sweet grape and tart dryness on the palate.
Light to medium body with light carbonation. Resembles a dry white wine.
I am enjoying this beer, but I do feel like it lacks in the complexity department. I am glad that I tried it, but it is not a beer I would hunt down again. Interesting, tasty and worth a try.
