adnielsen (8970) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a clear, light yellow appearance with a small, dissipating white head. Dry apple, pear, white grape, somewhat spicy, fluffy white birthday cake aroma. Sweet white grape, pear, apple, somewhat juicy, sweet wheat flavor that dries out a bit on the finish. Kind of interesting idea but didn’t turn out all that great.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.

This beer while it has some quality flavors but the grapes are too acidic. The flavor has a nice white grape juice quality. But it falls short ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is sweet with a wheat beer quality and only a hint of wine. The appearance is golden with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a decent beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow-gold color with a large foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy sugar, honeydew, white grapes and a hint of pepper. The flavor was sweet sugar, honeydew, white grape and a bit of bread. Medium length tangy bread and grape finish with a bit of booziness coming out at the tail end. Moderately full bodied. Decent.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2013
750mL bottle. Poured clear, bright golden with rising carbonation and a short, but well-retained white head. The aroma picked up sweet wheat, lemony notes, and sparkling grape juice.. buttery pale malts and honey beneath.. quite strong and sweet. The flavor found prickly carbonation, apple skins, and wheat on the tip of the tongue, with honey and sweetened grape juice following.. tangy wheat, cloves, and sweet vinous notes fought on the sharp-ish finish. Medium-bodied with fairly aggressive carbonation on the palate.. didn’t flow very well.. this was just OK.

Strykzone (4903) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2013
750. Very clear gold with a noisy white head. Light carbonation drifts up. A light aroma of wood, wheat, and vinous notes. The feel is much more vinous than beer with no carbonation. The flavor matches the nose and it is sweet with soft grapes and wood leading. If you like wine you will like this beer.

Took a flyer on this one because the experiment sounded interesting. It pours a light yellow with lots of tiny bubbles. No head at all here. Aroma is primarily grape juice or really young wine. The carbonation is good but then this white grape juice flavor takes over and does not let go. Not getting much beer here. Maybe a heartier style like a Tripel would have held its own against the sweet juice.
