I enjoy this. It was strongly carbonated, but was a little bland. Slightly higher alcohol content at 5.9% made it better.

A very overwhelming taste of wheat. The hops get lost in translation with the wheat.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a reddish copper to amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is cereal, old wet grain, a hint of vinegar, earth citrus and floral notes. Flavor is mostly dull fruit up front, then some tart floral, vegetal notes, cereal, and odd metallic and fusel notes. Medium body, slick, slightly oily feel throughout with a light, but blanketing and sharp carbonation. Not very good, lots of sloppy off notes and a mouthfeel that just doesn’t work for me. .

Bottle from Grant’s going away as Blue Moon Extra Sour Red -- best of luck in the air, we will miss you at events! Pours reddish amber with some carbonation, leaving an off-white head with slight lace. Aroma has sour cherry and light vinegar with some spices. Taste has lightly sour earthy cheery with some woodiness. Some biscuity malt, possibly. Light to medium bodied. Pleasant, somewhat sour. Decent offering from a macro.

12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: half finger slightly off-white to tan head, head does not last, copper color, clear, no lacing. Aroma: light fruit, caramel, light wheat notes. Palate: light body, average carbonation, dry finish, cloying texture. Taste: sweet caramel, wheat, and heavy fruity sweetness, into very very subtle tartness, ending with a cloying sweetness. Overall, interesting beer, but tastes are all off. There is nothing special about this beer.

My wife picked up a six pack of this and I helped my self to a bottle. Pours ruby red, passes a little light. Off white head. Nose just has some malt. Taste is completely malty, faux cherry. Diacayl. Cloying sweetness. This beer is not a farmhouse by any stretch. Craptastic.

Look: pours a copper color. White head. Very clear.
Smell: fruits. Bananas. Orange slices. Similar to blue moon wheat.
Taste: strange bitterness. Floral taste. Mild orange and bananas.
Feel: very thin. Medium carbonation.
Overall: not very good. Not a big fan of the fruit or the flower aroma and taste.
First drank: home 10/21/14

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from mixed-pack. Poured a bubbly copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma was light pale malts, some wheat notes. This one had lots of carbonation. Flavor was sweet malt notes, that’s about it. Nothing offensive. Another boring one. Would probably only drink again if someone bought one of these box sets.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sour, abrasive, muted complexity. Has the same fumbling, erroneous trappings of the Blue Moon brand.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a vague sort of red-brown-gold with a fine-grained, off-white, thin head. Nose is mostly acetic with a little coriander and sweetness. Taste is sour, metallic, and earthy, with an off-putting bitterness that’s not hops. Tastes like over-steeped tea. Finish is bitter and floral-sweetness. This tries to do two things, doesn’t do either one of them well, and ultimately sinks into mediocrity.
