bottle. Golden with small head. Strong wheat beer aged in wine barrels. Light tartness from the wine. Good, but not great.

9/20/2013: Blue Moon Proximity... Pale straw color with quite a bit of off-white foam on top. Smells a lot like a white wine (Reisling, actually). The flavor is mostly semi-sweet Reisling with just a slight musty wheatiness hiding underneath. There is a pretty high level of carbonation, so this beer feels light and airy on the palate, not unlike Champagne. Truth be told, the alochol level is really well-hidden. Overall, this beer isnít bad, but itís clearly more wine than beer since the fruitiness and flavor of the white grapes dominate. Furthermore, this beer is truly way too expensive for what it is. For a truly excellent blend of beer and wine, try Dogfish Head Sixty-One! Draught sample(s) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #53 for this beer.

trujahwarrior (478) - Monroe, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2013
750ml bottle poured into my Chimay Chalice. Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that fadded and leaves razor thin to no lacing. Smells of wine grapes, Wheat, coriander, and light malt. Tastes of all the same thing in the smell. Mouthfeel is mediumand slick with decent carbonation and a dry finish. Overall its decent but the appearance and mouthfeel kind of hurt this beer. Promising but didnít live up to the potential it could of had. Glad I only paid $4.99 on clearance instead of the $9.99 they were originally ask for.

Yellow clear pour. Smells of white wine, peaches, juice. Tastes like half wheat/half white wine-very good at representing both. Boring one not though. palate is bad. not much body & overly carbed.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle, best before October 21, 2013, poured into a a white wine glass. Pours clear golden with small white head. Low carbonation, nice small bubble lacing, and white wine aroma. Taste is soft wheat and white wine.

Pours clear yellow body with minimal head. Aroma of sweet grapes but very light and faint. Taste is pretty weak and overall not too stellar. Overall not an amazing beer

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle sampled at Jax Beer Fest 2013. Hazy golden pour with a small off-white head. Generic grapey wine aroma with pale malts and metallic notes. Sweet wine flavors with bready malts and more metallic aspects. Glad I didnít have to buy this puppy.

From 22oz bottle to chalice. Pours a nice gold color. Smell is of grapes, spice, light wheat. Taste is light bodied on the sweeter side. Heavy carbonation at the end.

hfmejias (618) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear golden minimal white head (that goes away quickly) no lacing whatsoever. Aroma of grapes and grain. Taste is also lots of grape some spices and grain, some malts in there too; alcohol is very well hidden. A bit watery and too wine/cider like.

750 shared at AKís going away part. Pours a clear golden color with a small effervescent white head. A sweet nose of grapes and bread. The flavor is fine: sweet grape juice, some biscuit and bread, light honey. Easygoing.
