(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a moderate white head. Aroma of herbs, white grapes, raisins, Granny Smith apples, clove, and banana. Flavor of white wine, citrus, herbs, bread, and light grass with a dry barrel finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2007
BBF 07. Pours a hazy very light yellowish, with peach hints, kind of a like a cloudy berliner weisse- nice fluffy dissipating white head. Aroma is lots of white wine, grapeskin, tartness- green apple acetaldehyde, grassy, and DMS- cooked capbbage and hints of corn. Lightly sweet, more chard grapes, crackery malts, tart acidity in the end, and finishes sort of crisp- and a bit vegetal i the end. Wierd beer.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Draft, multiple samples at BA Belgian Beer Fest 10/27/07. Poured hazy yellow, with a moderate sized white head. Aroma of malt, white grapes, and some yeast. White wine or champagne-like at first with white grape flavor, along with wheat, citrus, and some spice. Dry finish. Very interesting; I’d drink it again.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Vinous aroma, with hints of wit beer characters, though a little weak. No head, cloudy yellow. Heavy flavors of grapes then fading and leaving hefe flavors with some faint tartness at the end. Thick in the palate. An interesting try. Not unenjoyable but not something I’d have again. Not as nice as Allagash Victoria.

On tap at the Rehoboth Pub. Pours a hazy golden with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of banana, clove, citrus, grapes and some bready malts. Flavors of the same...this one really reminded me of a Hefe that was given the champagne treatment along with some grapes.

On tap-@ Rehoboth Brewpub. Poured a very hazy light golden color w/a slight head which turned into good lacing. Sweet, sugary aroma. Has a definite grape/citrus flavor w/traces of spice, yeast, & cane sugar. Very different, it’s definitly winelike (was served in a wine glass). Nice change of pace/after dinner drink, I wouldn’t drink it all the time. Reminded me more of a Hefe. I added this Brew as a Premimum Lager; as they call as the call it a Lager it seemed like the best match to me.
