Dogfish Head "Noble Rot"
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Milton, Delaware USA
Saison (ABV 9%) (IBU 18)

[Best served in a Tulip glass]

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 17/20

The pour was a sparkling clear golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that diminished rapidly, leaving behind a light film with a medium collar and some pretty good sticky lacing.

The aroma was on the funky side with a mild hay malt and a musty yeast with notes of white grapes, green apple, a mild white wine and just a slight hint of alcohol.

The taste was sweetly tart with a nice note of grapes and malt early on, progressing into an almost sour funky taste with a big dose of Belgian yeast and a strong wine characteristic. The flavor stuck around for a nice long while, letting the tart yeasty wine flavor linger on the taste buds for a good long time.

Mouthfeel was light in body and nice and dry in texture with a good strong prickly carbonation.

Overall a very unique brew, a mix of wine and beer that was done so superbly that it gives it an almost champagne like quality with the body and flavor of an excellent Farmhouse Ale. Be warned this is one to be careful of; it has a 9% ABV that is virtually unnoticeable in the taste…
