3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
10th October 2008. GABF. Leaving the hall at the end of the session a Blue Moon rep pounced with this beer so what the hell! Pale gold beer. Light crisp palate. More than a bit surprised to find the grapes do give this beer a winey slant and with the crisp palate it is a decent beer. Just wish Iíd tried their Peanut Beer now....

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of sweet chardonnay and cereal. Flavor resembles a light lager mixed with a bottle of Chardonnay...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Capped 750 as 2012 Vintage Blonde Ale from the Folsom BevMo. Pours gld with a fizzy/creamy white head. Looks more like sparkling wine than BudLight. Itís in a Stella glass with the pricklies so the tiny bubbles keep rising. Aroma is vinous - suggesting white grapes - better than Thompson seedless, but mayhap more semillon than chardonnay. Ok. The grape flavor is pretty chardonnay. It seems a bit wheaty, but - ok the subtext says wheat. Drinks pretty nice. Interesting flavor.

On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear yellow with a creamy lasting white head. Aromas of grapes, bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, grapes and a hint of apple with a smooth finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Studio Square. Very pale golden-straw coloured beer. Creamy white head. The nose is almost non-existent. Just a light kiss of straw and a fairly bright citrusy tartness that I can only assume is coming from the grapes. Very light but I canít say it is uninteresting. Tart and a little bit fruity, but the fruit seems vineous and quite attenuated. It really does come across like a mix of light wheat beer and crisp tart white wine... which isnít nearly as bad as it sounds.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburís Foco a while back. Bottle titled Vintage 2012. Pours a touch hazy yellow appearance with a dissipating white head. Somewhat zesty/spicy, white wine, grape, pear, a bit musty aroma. Fairly sweet malty, a bit sugary, white grape, apple, pear, light banana, somewhat tangy flavor. Fairly decent but kind of a one-dimensional fruit bomb thatís not even that dry.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 from Caponeís and Blue Dog. Pours medium golden with 3-finger effervescent white head that laces copiously. Nose is heavy vinous fruit, champagne yeast, hopcitrus. Tastes like a semi-sweet white wine, with a lot of carbonation and a smooth, lively palate. Stays fruity throughout, and has pretty good complexity. Loses a bit of cohesion late, but this one was decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, 2012 vintage. Poured crystal-clear, bright golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up lots of white grapes and oak over a wheaty base.. warmth brought out really nice melon and floral notes.. a bit too focused on the grape juice, but it was some good stuff. The flavor opened with tangy wheat and vinous notes that carried through the drink.. melon and semi-dry mead-like accents.. lots of melon and some white pepper on the dry finish. Light-medium bodied with prickly carbonation on the palate.. on the sweeter side.. OK feel and flow.. overall a solid brew.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, shared with Ian and Colin over a game of Power Grid. Lager-like pour, medium gold, average head, poor retention. Aroma is sweet, perhaps suggestive of white grape juice, but mostly sweet grains. Flavour is sweet, like soda, like Canada Dry ginger ale mixed with a basic sweet lager. Not my thing at all, not even as a summer beer. Drain pour actually.
