Bottle. Iíve been looking forward to trying this since it debuted several years ago. Bright clarity and straw yellow on the pour with a retentive white head. Pils malt and grassy aroma, earthy, stone fruit, mild grape. A touch of DMS. Mildly acidic and pretty strong yeasty flavors, some bright grapey fruit, husky DMS malt, dry, well hidden alcohol. Lots of saison character. No huge Viognier nor wine, nor sour flavor in the fore front. Lively carbonation. Bready and yeasty flavors. Dry, well contained alcohol. Different than expected. Aftertaste has mild plastic and sulfur notes.

This is the second grape-wine beer Iíve had in a week and while way better than Blue Moon Proximity Iím just not sure grape is all that great in beer. This is just okay.

750 ml. capped bottle. Pours a thin white head, with some lacing, over a pale yellow (SRM 2) body.....nose is vinous, with light Pils malt.....taste is vinous, with light cereal, sweet throughout, finishing with a light hop bitterness....mouth feel light, light astringency, carbonation high. The grape must dominates the very light malts with a remarkably small contribution from the hops. The net result is a sparking, slightly bitter, moderately sweet, low alcohol, white wine. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a very clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma stand out as fermented white grape juice with some tart and bready notes. Some hay. The flavor has some light notes of pepper, grapes and hay. Light tartness. It has a fizzy and light body. Pretty good stuff.

Clear yellow pour with medium sized white head. Aroma of grapes, white wine, yeast and a tinge of citrus. Taste of green grapes, malts, yeast, hint of caramel and faint hops. Very interesting and not a bad beer.

On tap at The Mayor of Old Town. Pale golden and clear with a white foam and some lacing. Smells tart, fruity and lightly of yeast. Similar flavor, with a touch of white wine as well. Not bad.

Thanks Jason! Pours clear light yellow with small white head that goes to a whisp. Smell is of white grapes and must. The taste is a big white grape flavor, must, crisp, dry.Very vinous in taste. Light and effervescent. This beer is tasty and refreshing.

Clear, very pale yellow with a small white head. It looks like chardonnay with a tiny white head. Aroma of wheat, grapes, wine, spruce, must, and mint. The taste is tart white wine, yeast, slight bitterness, and very slight sweetness. Medium bodied and a touch dry. This is the best white wine Iíve ever tried.
