Taste was ok. It was not really what I wanted. A little too winy for me. Overall not a drink I would go for again. Poured the rest out.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours a clear yellow golden color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, Chardonnay notes and grape juice, pale wheat malt. This is pretty sweet and juicy with the wheat taking a second billing. Again, too expensive for what this is.

BOSSbrewer (1312) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Pours a clear golden wit two fingers of fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet grapes. Flavor is sweet and sort of wine tasting. Medium bodied with a fairly sweet finish. Meh.

scooterbub (793) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAR 9, 2014
750ml bottle. Pours a nice golden color with a one inch white head that fades. Taste is of grapes, fruit, citrus, yeast, apples and malt. Similar aroma. Has a lighter body that finishes clean. Drinks more like a cider than a beer and comes across like a malt liquor. Good, but not quite what I was hoping for.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle:   A somewhat thick and almost sickly sweet fruitiness, soft to moderate chardonnay like flavors, with a very faint wheaty background.   Pretty thick, well thick enough to the point that the sweetness almost makes it a bit sickly.   Almost mealy.   Big sweet chardonnay like finish.   Tiz alright, but its a bit too sweet for the most part.

This has a fairly strong wheat content to it, though the grapes are quite noticeable as well. Also, a strong effervescence. Okay.

Danyel (460) - Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear light yellow with white head. Has a very wheaty, orange aroma. Very simple tasting, easy, slightly creamy, touch of oranges. I really have to dig to find something in this beer. Very boring, almost like drinking water, needs a lot more going on! Boring.

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Stamped: 01314.
Appearance: The body is a clear amber, with a dense white head that has poor retention. The head dissipates into a thin ring and no center coating.
Aroma: The aroma is bright with tangerine and lemon, but there is an odd chemical like aroma that lingers in the background. There may be some tannins here, if so they are very mild. The aroma is very fruity, but not entirely pleasant.
Taste: The intro is mildly sweet with hints of honey. The mid-taste leads to a fruity mid-taste of semi-sweet orange and honey underlying it. The flavor is certainly pleasant, very fruity and expressive. The finish is clean and enjoyable.
Palate: Full-bodied, a bit juicy, mildly carbonated.
Overall: I enjoy this beer, though I find that as the beer warms I become less enamored with it. The finish becomes a bit cloying and the flavor too skewed towards tangering/orange. This is certainly a valiant effort, but it’s not a gold medal winning beer.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Juicy, cider-like nose with a little vanilla. Smooth and oily, little carbonation. Fresh, zingy fruit and a very calm malt character. My lady is lapping it up, I however, am not so keen.

Ratman197 (9030) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2013
750 ml bottle poured a clear gold with a lingering ring of white foam. aromas of wheat and white grapes. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, white grapes and light bread with a crisp finish.

arminjewell (5716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Pour on tap at Black Bottle, clear yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of big oak, booze, and some tart grape skins, hints of biscuit, bread, more sweet fruit notes, slight spicy notes as well. Taste is a mix of sweet white grape, peach, and pear going into lots of sweet biscuit bread, some oak, boozy harsh notes come through again, slight earth and spice finishing bitter, boozy.
