3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille de 750ml capsule métallique. Liquide jaune paille dorée avec une mousse blanche discrète. Le nez est un mélange de malt pils, de vin blanc et d’épices. Facile à boire cette bière est fraiche. La mousse prend beaucoup d’expansion en bouche. Elle goute le vin blanc, le blé, les raisins verts et la coriandre. L’alcool est peu présent. Elle est un peu sucrée en fin de bouche. Facile et estivale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. The pour’s light gold with a tiny white head. The aroma’s muscat grape earthiness. Some stewed pear. Light lemony hop accents. Soft esters. Some banana and barnyard. The taste is more pear and white grape fruit salad. Mild funky barnyard yeast profile. Hints of wheaty banana and marshmallow. Light body. Fine carbonation. Overall, reasonably refreshing stuff.

Pours very light & thin but hides the ABV very well! The sweet wine like flavor stands out in the end which sets this apart from other saisons. Dangerously drinkable at 9%. Different for DFH. Pretty good.

Very interesting beer. It is definitely not your typical fruit beer. Mild grape aroma. Clear light amber with a medium head. The grape flavor seems to lean toward muskadine. Grows on you.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Great beer for spring and summer time enjoyment. Pours a pale yellow, thin, the head is a sliver of foam around the top of the glass, medium carbonation. It tasted like a Saison style w the after taste of grapes, slightly sweet. Very refreshing and approachable for a 9%ABV. All around really good and different.

...on tap at Mermaid Juice. Yellow with extreme carbonation that fizzes till it’s gone. Small white head with some lacing. Aromas of grapes and yeast, had a slight citrus note. Finishes slightly prickly with some grape and yeast. I was pleased with this one, and glad I had it on draft.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Excellent beer! Poured at a good temperature with fizzy, small, off-white head that quickly settled and a bit of lace. Color is a clear, light yellow with plenty of racing bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, grapes, and beer. Flavor is absolutely outstanding! This is the best grape beer I’ve ever had!! The grapes add a bit of sweetness but that is perfectly balanced by the fresh tart style of the beer and robust carbonation along with the yeast bitterness and of course, hop. Body is bang on perfect; ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, quite long, and extremely drinkable. Wish I had more.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Draft pour. Pale yellow with almost no head. Light carbonation. Smells like summery fruits and earth/grass. Light mouthfeel with flavors of soft fruit, natural sweetness and very mild hops. A great summer beer. Not too sweet and easy drinking.

From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. It pours a highly carbonated pale yellow with a fluffy, foamy white head. The aroma - is this a hefe-weiss? I get something akin to wheat all around with pale malts and a subtle hops. The body is medium. The grapes really erupt in the flavor. I get none of it on the nose but it is entirely evident in the taste.
