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.

The pour is pink/gold, white head. The aroma is red wine must, wheat, cereal grain. The flavor is grapes, tannins, pepper, yeasty. The finish is light pepper. OK.

Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fairing. Moderate wheat and grape aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium grape flavor with a medium sweet grape finish of moderate duration. This is a soft beer.

Clear yellow pour with large white head and a lot of lacing. Aroma of white wine (sauvigon blanc mostly), citrus, bready malts. Flavor of bready malts, white grapes (and wine), with a bit of watery mouthfeel. Interesting unique brew from a macro, though I would not see paying more than $3.99 for a bottle for this.

2/13 Sample at Binny’s Downers Grove)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of wine. Taste of more wine than beer. This light bodied brew was not my style. Had too much wine.

Malty and fruity....large bubbles, weak head, and lots of grape juice flavor. Not as good as a standard lambing

On tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2013. Mostly clear golden color. White head. Tart, white grape nose. Some sour-apple. Wow. Taste is much worse than the nose. Very macro. Tastes... Like a sweet white wine. Wtf. Bigger body. Soft, medium / lighter carbonation. Slight macro-esque bite. Wow. Calling it "wine-like" is an insult to white wine.
