Damn Pilsner malt!!!!! I thought I would try this even though I hate pilsner malt. The sourness saves this beer. Ultra clear and glassy in appearance. Freaky.

Crystal clear light golden color. White wine line. Medium white head with mild lacing. Aroma is cross between a Belgian dubbel and white wine. A lot of grapiness and esther's. A mild amount if bright malt sweetness. Flavor starts out very white wine like. Very crisp and tart grapiness, but mellows out into a Davison like estery Belgian style beer. Actually very refreshing and light. ---Rated via iPhone

Bottle. Pours a light straw with a quarter finger of rapidly diminishing, fine white head. Aroma is funky, farmhouse, tart wheat, musty. Flavor is sour, tart, and wheat up front, finishes funky and perhaps lactic. Tart white grapes, slight alcohol in finish, reminiscent of of mead and wine in finish. Lingers briefly. Moderate to soft carbonation, medium body, and crisp texture.

Beautiful clean, clear straw color. Small 1/4 inch head. At first, a strong white grape juice on the nose, but that quickly dissapated to reveal the frangrance of spicy Belgian yeast. Nice sharp bubbles, and citrus-y hops. Pleasant long finish rounded out by grapes. A very delicious beer, that would be great to pair with foods that normally work with a saison or white wine.

Light yellow color with small white head. I smell light citrus, lemon, yeast and a sweet hay smell. I taste white wine with beer and extremely refreshing.... Very good.

Nice drink (even though I don’t drink wine), but tastes more like a fizzy wine or fizzy grape juice than beer. Looks and smells like wine too.

Would love to get this again. Very carbonated, champagne like. Sweet and pleasant. Very different but enjoyable. The grape and beer combo definitely works as shown here. Excited to see dogfish’s new wine-beer to be released.

Yellow pour with a thin white head. Taste is dry, a hint of malt, and a grape aftertaste. Sweet and subtle. A nice beer, gives the impression of barrel aging with grape must. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Ryan. Piss yellow pour. Nose is sulphur, eggs, grapes. Flavor is white grapes, slight must, straw. Dry mouthfeel.
