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.

possibly the best thing Iíve had with Blue Moon on the label, but far more expensive as well, in the big bottle. Glad not to have paid :) Look and feel are more fizzy than anything else. Flavor and aroma of grape/berry/oak is not bad.

DuffMan (8915) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
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.

djd07 (8205) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2015
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.

douglas88 (8011) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 11, 2013
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.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
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.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2012
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.

onceblind (6669) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2014
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.

bottle from the tuesday bu11zeye tasting, dark reddish brown, this is identical to drinking a debouef beaujolais nouveau, young fruity wine notes with sweet grape finish
