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?

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.

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.

Ratman197 (11778) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2013
750 ml bottle poured a hazy burgandy with a small lingering pinkish head. Aromas of red grapes, wheat, straw and light sour apple. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, straw, red grapes and light earthiness with a crisp dry lingering red grape finish.

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.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins. Pours like Strawberry Kool-aid: red violet appearance with a small pink head. Musty, nasty red grape, cheap wine, juicy, plum aroma. Boozy, tangy red grape, kind of jammy berry, light granola, shitty wine flavor. Wow, this is some rancid shit.

Draft. Cheap red wine and wheat malt aroma. Red with pink head. Watered down red wine flavor. Like a bad red wine spritzer.

DrSilverworm (9107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2013
On tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2013. Clear reddish pink color. Minimal white head. Cranberry nose. Not as grapey. Pronounced, soft carbonation. Dry texture. Macro blue moon feel to it. More berry than grape, as far as fruits. Feels articificial. Kind of sweet taste. Not interesting at all, but very macro. No complexity.
