I wasnít too sure about this when I opened it. Very pale yellow like a bad lager. (But what does appearance really matter.) Coors Lite comes to mind. But then you get a whiff of the fruit and the funk and you think this might not be so bad. The flavor has a nice balance and the sour funk makes it extra special. It has a very crisp and dry finish. More like a sour ale but who cares.

Had this at Ratebeerís Horny Devil Pittsburgh Winter Tasting 2012. Big thanks to James for this rocking beauty! Looks like white wine. Smell is mild. First taste makes me think of dry white wine. However, there is this slight bubbling sizzle on the tongue that makes it seem more like champagne. Some detectable tartness in the background. Wew, Iím telling you, this is just like many white champagnes Iíve had in the past. Quite unique fer sure in the beer arena. Burns just a little going down the gullet. As the taste continues, I think this is better than white champagne, has its own personality that sets it apart. No detectable rudeness throughout. BIG THANKS HORNY DEVIL! I generally do not care for DFH but this stuff rocks!

Bottle from Canalís Marlton. Pours out a well carbonated pale yellowish color, but not in a bad Coors Light way. Aroma is of grapes, fruit, wine and some fruity esters with a little bit of bitterness? Taste is smooth, nice notes of that tart, but lightly sweet white grape juice that leaves a slight tang on your palate. Behind those flavors are notes of citrus, yeast, earthy yeasty notes and no real tell of the 9% abv, I dare say this would be dangerous if consumed in quantity.

Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grapes, spices, citrus, and light funk. Taste of pils malt, grass, spices, and tart grape in the finish.

Pours slightly hazy but bright golden with slight white head. Aroma of the grapes is there at the front although subdued initially. Taste is very sweet and my first thought was of a Belgian wit beer on steroids

The yeasty spicy grape flavor is present in aroma with some saison leathery farmyard after burn. Abv well hidden. Grapes seem pretty fresh. Body a bit light and wet despite a somewhat dry aftertaste. Body disappoints but flavor is not bad. Thought it was summer shandy without the preservatives!

Pour is a clear light yellow, lively carbonated with a two finger thick white head. Nose is of wine, and grapes dominantly. Taste is actually somewhat like a saison after reading the description, and has a strong grape backbone.

Draft at Coles DFH Frenzy, Buffalo NY. Straw colored pour with white head. Milder white wine aroma with light saison scent. White wine forward flavor. Pinot Gris, light cider, saisony yeastiness. Very winey. Pretty cool & flavorful offering. Enjoyable

Is it beer? More like a fizzy wine. Pours gold straw and foamy white head, Smells of wine, bubble gum, bananas. Taste is tart and tangy, not unlike champagne. Won it as a door prize, would not go out of my way to buy it, but a pleasant quaff.
