This beer is interesting to say the least. Unassuming at the start, only a slight tangy aroma. Taste is overpoweringly tangy. Too much for me.

Bottle to oversized snifter. Looks okay; very light and translucent. Smells good; nice and fruity. Tastes pretty good too; you can definitely pick up on the Pinot Gris grapes, but they marry well with the Pils malt. Mouthfeel is good too. Overall, a pretty good experimental beer from Dogfish Head.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Spicy aroma with grapes and other fruit notes. Loads of flavor with grapes, apples,pepper and spices. Finishes tart and flowery. Very drinkable,

Sample at World Of Beer for Dogfish Head Draft Domination on 03/27/12. Pale yellow-gold color with a medium fluffy white head that dissipates slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, cloves and malt. Medium body with a vinous character and flavors of Champagne yeast, spice and malt. The finish is sweet with a grape juice and hops aftertaste. Interesting, above average beer overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear yellow pour with thin white head, thanks a ton Aaron! Aroma has notes of lemony grapes, touch of apricot, pear and peach, slight white grape with slight funk, touch of earth and slight lactic notes. Taste is nice white grape with sweet tart fruit, nice pear and apricot notes, slight funky notes, touch of bready malts with a nice funky note, hints of slight lemon, finishing fairly sweet but a slight tart fruit note. Nice beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle from Willows Market. Nice clear white wine color with a well-formed bubbly white head. Very vinous aroma of Pinot Gris, sweet malt, and honey. The flavor is also very wine-like with big white grape notes, sweet malt, and some alcohol. Medium-bodied and smooth, mildly tannic with a bit of booziness. Solid stuff, if a bit overrated.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Maria’s. Pours a good looking gold witha fluffy white head. Nose shows lots of white wine grapes, a bit of funk and honey. Quite fruity overall. Mild tartness. On tasting, the wine character is pretty dominant, but there is some soft sweet pils malt flavor and a spicy hop note with balanced bitterness. Pretty cool beer here.
