Dogfish Head: Midas Touch

Part beer, part mead, all good. Dogfish head have been making this one for a while, but it had been years since I had a bottle of it.  A friend of ours in Melbourne brought some to a dinner party one night, it was amazing, I hadn't seen it since.  The Hamilton Wine Company got some in, and was kind enough to hide a couple bottles so I could get them.  It is as good as I remember it.

What kind of beer is it? Hard to say. Honey and spices (saffron, they claim) make it meady, but it packs a punch at 9%, and is very easy to drink.  It has enough going on to keep the most snobbish of beer snobs interested, while not being too harsh for a casual drinker.
