Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours a maroon with a foamy head. Aroma of grape juice and malt. No hops. Taste is an overly sweet grape juice. I really get no beer flavor from this

BMan1113VR (7890) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle at BTBF. Glad I didn’t have to pay for a whole bottle to get this tick. Pours with a pink hued body and a foamy white head. Aromas are of grapes, koolaid and VDK Diacetyl. Minimal malt, no hops. Flavors are of champagne, generic concord grapes, sulfur, lightly grainy. Sort of tastes like a crappy sangria. Lively/fizzy bubbles, dry and thin.

750 ml from a liquor store in Jackson, WY. Fancy gold foil. Pours a deep purple color with a small white head. A light fruity nose. The wheat base fits pretty well with the grape juice, some light yeast, sweet grapes. Decent.

poisoneddwarf (1844) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2013
750 ml foil-capped bottle. Expired about a month ago. Pours a pretty hazy ruby red with a purple-white head with decent retention. Smells just like red wine at first--after it sits awhile, a strange funky cheesiness sets in; smells a little like fruit gone bad, as well. Tastes like a cheap red wine--Riunite Lambrusco immediately springs to mind. A little sweet, a little sour; finishes dry and lightly bitter. Thin body, high carbonation. Along with the off-notes, there’s something missing here that would have let me look past them a bit, maybe.

Looks as good as a strong fruity raspberry or cherry beer, but the aroma is very off. My wife likes the aroma but I hate it. The flavor and the beer both have plenty of butter, esp. the beer. I am surprised by how poorly the beer sits, considering how decent some of the other Blue Moons sit.

unclemike (2402) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours grape with pink purple head. Nose and taste of grape juice, wheat malt and hints of banana. Some metallic notes. Light bodied. Not very good

The local grocery knocked this down to nearly half of its old price, so I decided to give it a go. A deep burgundy red with hints of light brown when held to light. A little tiny bit of a pink head clings to the edges of the glass. Strong vinous smells overpower the beer. A possible whiff of caramel sneaks in. The taste is dominated by the grapes. I only get a light hint of a lame american style wheat behind the huge grape presence. The beer is absolutely overwhelmed in this one. I assume this is gunning for wine lovers looking at the bottle style. Decent and different, but this one doesn’t know what it wants to get across.

(750ml bottle, BB Apr 01 13) Pours a clear ruby red body with a small pink head. Aroma of cabernet sauvignon grapes, rose, and raspberries. Flavor of cabernet sauvignon and wheat with a dry finish.

Tmoney99 (11479) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear reddish amber color with an average fizzy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet grape aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet grape flavor and a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. High alcohol grape juice.

tgncc (2986) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 19, 2013
The aroma is wheat, cereal grain, grape juice (like Welch’s). The appearance s a red wine/pink color, white head. The flavor is grape juice, wheat bread, cereal grains. The finish as an acidic quality, and red wine sourness.
