3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours reddish pink with a pink foamy head.aroma is papery bitter grape. Flavor is very artificial and has some weird spice notes. It finishes sort of dry,but I have no clue what is going on with this. IIt’s artificially sweet, and muddled.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
THOUGHTS: Very nice. Not being a wine guy at all, I was surprised I liked this so much. A nice blend of beer and wine. It was a little more like wine than the Proximity just because of the red wine having stronger flavors and aromas than whites.
TECHNICAL: Drank 3/4/2013. Bottle. Poured a clear, dark, red with nice carbonation and an average, fluffy, pink head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma contained very light wheat, grape, red wine, vanilla, grape skins and hints of wood. The initial flavor was slightly sweet, lightly acidic and ever so slightly sour; while the finish was lightly sweet, moderately acidic and slightly sour with an average duration. There was red wine, wheat, grapes, hits of vanilla and wool, tobacco and light yeast. The light to medium body was dry with fizzy carbonation and slightly alcoholic finish.

bottle. deep ruby with small head. bland wheat ale with some very light red wine/grape flavor. slight booze. this is so close, yet so far from being an awesome beer. a little tart bite would help so much.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
750ml bottle tasted blind. Artificial red-wine color. Thin, foamy off-white head. Sugary chemical blueberry syrup. Tastes like a cheap wine mixed with a beer, or maybe a mead. Red cola flavor. unimpressive, one I’ll avoid. Disturbing.

bomber (bottled on april fools 2013) - pours clear red with ivory pink head and decent lacing. Nose is strawberries and red wine. A little tangy, sour and sweet. For 8.5% ABV and the price I paid for this, I’ll drink it all day long. Cardboard aftertaste. Slight champagne after-afternotes. rerate ten minutes into it. Butter/cheese is getting to me: loses points

31st May 2013
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?

Deep purple pour with a pinnk head. Aroma is vinous, slightly malty, but very subdued. Flavor is muddled and strange. Really not a good beer at all.

750 ml bottle poured into my chimay challice. Pours a crimson color with a fizzy pink head that leaves light lacing. Smells of red wine, Wheat and coriander. Tastes like blue moon mixed with red wine. Mouthfeel is thin and oily with light carbonation and a semi dry finish. Only slightly better than Proximity but not by much.

Sample 2/13 (Binny’s Downers Grove)--Pours ruby with no head. Aroma of wine. Taste of wine. Interesting concept but something I am surprised made it to market.
