1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Papered bomber from Wegmanís 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. Iím 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. Iím dumping 18/22 ounces of this, yet another gimmick "beer" from these assholes.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is grape juice and wood. Thin mouth, boozy, light grape flavor, slight metallic finish, not much going on with this one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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 canít shake the feeling that Iím drinking cheap bum wine.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at BTBF. Glad I didnít 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle. Poured transparent garnet with a short, plum-tinted head.. very interesting color to it. The aroma picked up sweet, redder vinous notes, earthy wheat, and jammy berries.. as it warmed, the berries worked a bit too hard for my liking, but I did enjoy the grapeage. The flavor found clean wheat and lightly-toasted bread at the core, with jammy berries and red grapes throughout.. lightly-charred oak barrel on the dry edges and paired with berries on the finish. Light-medium bodied and a tad sweet on the palate.. wish it had more tartness.. this was aiight.

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 itís not something I could do a whole bottle of.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle. This pours like grape juice with a pretty purple head and a deep red clear beer under it. It kind of smells like grape juice, too, but more vinous. My first thought after one sip is that it resembles communion juice. Grape flavor with a bit of wood and malt. The wheat ale aspect filters in finally and seems to be little more than a vehicle for the grapes. My first thought was not far off. That being said, this is completely inoffensive and extremely drinkable.
