1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours pale red with pink head. Smells like Cabernet and beer. Tastes like Cabernet and beer, neither high quality. Cab flavor doesn’t have the punch I love in wine, beer tastes kinda flat. Not a fan.

Bottle. Deep ruby red. Smells of grapes, sugar and wheat. Interesting. Better then the Proximity. Again... I appreciate the effort from the macros

This is shit. Blue moon that someone mixed in some old, stale ass box wine. I found nothing appealing in this beer. Poor effort, and I should have known better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a velvety magenta with a nose of cab, light cherry juice, grassy strawberry, and a touch of toasted vanilla. Flavor is an upfront rush of cab quickly tempered by a harvested bread and grass smorgasboard. Finishes clean and cabby. Average mouthfeel. Not bad; very interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep red-pink-purple with publish head. Nose is Belgian wit wheat, coriander, and light vanilla with the addition of a mild red wine/grape juice aroma. Flavor starts again with the Belgian wit character that gives way to slightly sweet red wine. Fairly well attenuated with zero alcohol presence. Overall, a bit of a watered-down wine feel to this, but drinkable.

I’d rather have a natty light. Tastes like Coors and red wine mixed together. A for effort. F for execution.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a crystal clear cherry soda color with a minimal pink head. Has a sour funky bubble gum aroma. Taste is chardonnay to be sure, and it seems well balanced, but it has a thin texture with a sour wheat ale funk to it. Maybe it’s just me, not the biggest fruit beer fan, but this is not particularly inspiring.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from the Vacaville BevMo. Pours dark and very ruddy. Beautiful. Like the grape color hung in there. No head to mention. Aroma is vinous. Or like that. It is unusual, but quite attractive. Med body. Not heavily carbonated. Initial hit was- oh no, this isn’t going to be Welches? But a split second later it clearly was not, and the cabernet aspect was quite definite. If you’re a cab fan, you’ll probably get a kick out of this. It’s pretty. Very good, considering it’s a wheat beer. Very good anyway. My respect for Blue Moon just went up by leaps and heaps.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours ruby with a thin pink head. Clear. Nose is faintly wheaty, very fruity in a vinous way, astringent, flavor is sweet and faintly sour, slightly chalky mouthfeel, watery and a little oily, it is not very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a purple color with a large pink (that’s right, pink) head. The aroma is very wine like. I get a lot of the cabernet sauvignon grapes, with a little bit of biscuit or wheat thrown in. The flavor is very similar. I get some fruity notes from the grapes, but there is also some tannic notes like you would get from a big cabernet. There is some wheat and other malt notes, but this is really all about the grapes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
