71. Dogfish Head Midas Touch

This beer is certainly unlike anything else I have tried. A very interesting combination of honey, saffron, papaya and melon. You can certainly smell the saffron after poured. The head in the photo is probably a result of a bad pour on my part but it does have a fair amount of carbonation and great coloring. Overall I gave this an above average rating as I like original beer and of the 71 different beer reviews done to date this one is unique.
