Tonight I'm drinking Midas Touch brewed by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Delaware. This will be the first time I drank this beer since reviewing it back in April, 2009. Simple, deep purple label says this is a "Handcrafted Ancient Ale with barley, honey, white muscat grapes and saffron". Bottled On: 07/27/10 D.
Honey, sweet fruity aroma. Honey sweet flavor start as well. Nice grape back-up with a warming burn from the 9% alcohol. Creamy smooth, lightly flat. Interesting spiciness, probably the saffron, though I need to go to the grocery store spice section to be sure. After a few sips, some other fruity complexities show up, like sweet orange and apple. You also start to feel the alcohol in your chest a bit more. Interesting, flavorful. Not my favorite and not even my favorite from Dogfish Head, but a very nice beer to try now and again.
