drowland (5998) - 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 didn’t 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 (710) - 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.

douglas88 (5934) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2013
750 shared at AK’s 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.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle at BTBF. So happy I didn’t have to pay for a whole bottle to tick. Pours with a clear yellow hued body with a white head. Aromas are grapey (generic), bland malt, chlorine. Flavors are dry and a bit champagne like, medium sulfur, fruity, low ester. Dry with moderate carbonation.

Pours light, clear gold with a quick, loose head. White grape, apple scents. Taste is sweet white grape, fruit juice. Very light...mild.the ABV is only evidenced by a slight fume at the back of the throat... Better than I anticipated..

shrubber85 (7557) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle. White grape and green apple aroma - like a cheap white wine. Medium yellow with slight head. Mildly sweet white grape juice/wine and light malt flavor. Light but pleasant.

davey101 (684) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 16, 2013
750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. A - Pours a crystal clear amber body. Two fingers of soapy off white foam forms and dissipates quickly leaving behind a thin edging. This sits completely still if left alone for a few minutes. Minimal lacing. S - This really does capture the grape variety. Very sweet and floral with that unique tropical dryness that you would expect from the wine. Finishes with some harsh graininess. T - Less winey than the nose. Sweet grapes with a bit of wheat and cereal grains. Lacks complexity as its actually quite boring. Washes away quickly with a finish that is almost dry. Crisp and well carbonated. O - I was pretty impressed with the nose, but the flavor just doesn’t carry through. This beer is very approachable and I can imagine people who enjoy the wine could appreciate this beer. A solid attempt, but not very memorable.
