1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Deep purple pour with a pinnk head. Aroma is vinous, slightly malty, but very subdued. Flavor is muddled and strange. Really not a good beer at all.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle poured into my chimay challice. Pours a crimson color with a fizzy pink head that leaves light lacing. Smells of red wine, Wheat and coriander. Tastes like blue moon mixed with red wine. Mouthfeel is thin and oily with light carbonation and a semi dry finish. Only slightly better than Proximity but not by much.

Sample 2/13 (Binny’s Downers Grove)--Pours ruby with no head. Aroma of wine. Taste of wine. Interesting concept but something I am surprised made it to market.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Smells like wet sock, tastes like rotten grapes, the wheat certainly clashes, a lot more cheap wine character then wheat beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Dark red wine color. Pours with a pink head. First taste comes with the aroma of light wine and grapes. Then a flavor of beer and almost champagne. Then wine taste continues with an aftertaste . Best ice cold.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From .750 l bottle.
Cherry red with little head. Winey aroma, winey taste, not beery good.
(Sorry - that pun was uncalled for, and just bad... but so was the beer.)
Blue Moon with orange is a darn fine summer beer. BlueMoon on wine, not so much.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml. bottle- Pours a nice hazy ruby red with a thin light pink head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is grapes, musty overripe grapes, maybe wheat. Taste is fruity, cab sauv grapes really resonate, they could have made this more complex, but it doesn’t taste all that bad. The body is medium light and carbonation is medium. This is okay, not anything I would want a bunch of, but not horrible either. It does become tiresome after awhile, a 12 oz bottle would have been more than enough, and the grapes they used seem low quality, like the grapes that weren’t good enough to make wine out of they just sold off to whoever would buy them.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark cherry red with little to no head. Smells like Cabernet wine without strongly smelling exclusively like wine. Tastes like a carbonated grape juice. Only hint of beer is on the finish, you get a faint note of wheat. Different kind of cool approach from Blue Moon here. Not a big wine fan, but could really see a girlfriend or wife enjoying this.
