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.

What a stepdown from the special Scaldis. This beer was drinkable but not for $9.!! The lightness of a white wine grape is certainly noticeble but it just seemed a bit flat. And the grape tastes okay.

adnielsen (10024) - 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 (5311) - 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.
