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.

The wine notes are apparent in the aroma, and it blends nicely with the sweet wheat. Pours a clear light straw with a full white head. The grape juice is still there and was apparently added after fermentation was complete, as it adds a lot of sweetness. Light bodied, easy drinking. I’m surprised they got the alcohol as high as they did with this much residual sweetness. Glad I tried it, but probably would not get it again.

OK. Faint aroma of grape. Pretty ginger and pear color. Wine-like character in the weight and palate. Flavor was like alcoholic grape juice. Not very complex and was hoping for a little more.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Some raisin, some alcohol, pale, sparkling, white foam, light sweetness, fizzy. Nice fresh beer for a sunny day.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a robust eggwhite head that diminishes quickly. Plenty of small rising bubbles. Aroma is white grape juice and malt liquor! Taste is dry slightly sour white grapes and high gravity malt liquor. Some fusil alcohol in the taste and some warmth after the swallow. This isn’t terrible, but its clearly overpriced for what you get. $8.30 for the bottle should not be any higher than $4.50 for what you get. Assuming the pricing scheme doesn’t change, and why would it, this has been my last Blue Moon specialty beer. They just don’t have a good track record compared to most in the class this aspires to.

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
