2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, shared at game night. Purpley and bubbly, with a quick fading light purple head. Vinous grape juice, sweet, clumsy, lacking complexity, too sweet, cloying. I can’t shake the feeling that I’m drinking cheap bum wine.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, cellared for 18 months. Pours hazy purple, small purple head, dissipates fairly quickly, some lacing. Aroma is grape soda and wheat. Flavor is light sweet, grape, vinous, low bitterness; a bit of grape must. Medium body, high carbonation. Not terrible.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Papered bomber from Wegman’s about 9 months or so ago, roughly, just an estimate. This one has been in my fridge awhile, like a two-bit whore, because you don;t want to consume her until you are desperate. I’m not desperate, just in a new rating mood, and a beer fridge cleaning mood. Without further adieu, here goes. Pours blush colored with minimal head. Nose is slightly concord grapey wheat ale. Tastes like a grape wine coller, semi-dry. I’m dumping 18/22 ounces of this, yet another gimmick "beer" from these assholes.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out a dark cherry hue with a pinkish fizzy head that disappears fast. Nice nose of red berries and red grapes with a sweet touch of Riesling and port. Unfortunately the flavor is a bit light with wheat tones that are somewhat unnecessary, with a grapey wine acidity. Still has some lovely red fruit and port tones but it’s not something I could do a whole bottle of.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
THOUGHTS: Very nice. Not being a wine guy at all, I was surprised I liked this so much. A nice blend of beer and wine. It was a little more like wine than the Proximity just because of the red wine having stronger flavors and aromas than whites.
TECHNICAL: Drank 3/4/2013. Bottle. Poured a clear, dark, red with nice carbonation and an average, fluffy, pink head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma contained very light wheat, grape, red wine, vanilla, grape skins and hints of wood. The initial flavor was slightly sweet, lightly acidic and ever so slightly sour; while the finish was lightly sweet, moderately acidic and slightly sour with an average duration. There was red wine, wheat, grapes, hits of vanilla and wool, tobacco and light yeast. The light to medium body was dry with fizzy carbonation and slightly alcoholic finish.

bottle. deep ruby with small head. bland wheat ale with some very light red wine/grape flavor. slight booze. this is so close, yet so far from being an awesome beer. a little tart bite would help so much.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
750ml bottle tasted blind. Artificial red-wine color. Thin, foamy off-white head. Sugary chemical blueberry syrup. Tastes like a cheap wine mixed with a beer, or maybe a mead. Red cola flavor. unimpressive, one I’ll avoid. Disturbing.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bomber (bottled on april fools 2013) - pours clear red with ivory pink head and decent lacing. Nose is strawberries and red wine. A little tangy, sour and sweet. For 8.5% ABV and the price I paid for this, I’ll drink it all day long. Cardboard aftertaste. Slight champagne after-afternotes. rerate ten minutes into it. Butter/cheese is getting to me: loses points

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
31st May 2013
Pretty much an opaque dark red beer with a tidy pale pink head. Palate is crispy and fresh, semi dry. Smooth malt, light and a perfect base for the lovely light grape. Slightly winey with touches of red and black berry fruits. Finishes light and minerally. Drinks well below it’s abv. Honestly all these shit rates? Really? Are you guys sure you are not rating the brewery instead of the beer in front of you?
