PumpkinBurger (46) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 26, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 interesting? yes.. and even somewhat refreshing... but past that, not really my thing. pretty acidic, very dry and sour, kind of vinegary ... goes down somewhat like a wine or cider... and if that?s what i was looking for then that?s what I?d rather get... probably won?t be having this again

delnoche (443) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - AUG 23, 2014
1pt 9.4fl oz bottle poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint. Sparkling gold with two fingers white head. Aroma is grapes and very slight hops. Very tart, sweet wine flavor. The 9% alcohol is well hidden, only slightly warming on the finish. Leaves you with a very sweet, almost cloying, lingering flavor. Definitely gets the saliva flowing. This actually reminds me of a very weak sparkling white wine (champagne). Definitely not what I expect from a beer but I like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsnicholas (117) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle (750ml): pours a light golden with white head the disappears. Very fruity and a lot of carbonation. Tastes more like a bubbly white wine than a beer. Nice to try, but not my thing.

Ester_ (98) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Bright yellow color with a medium persistent head. Aromas of Belgian yeast and grapes. Flavors of grapes, sweet white wine and Belgian yeast. Good carbonation with a nice mouthfeel. Well balanced beer. Jaune clair éclatant, moyen col de mousse persistant. Arômes de levure belge et de raisin. Saveurs de raisin, vin blanc sucré, levure belge. Bonne carbonatation, belle sensation en bouche. Bon équilibre entre les raisins et la bière.

UncleKorm (787) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2014
On tap poured a clear golden hue w/ thin white head and pretty lacing. Moderate to bold sweet straw and grape aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a light sour finish. Tastes are a blend of a Pils, white wine and champaign. Light bodied and hides the warmth well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmoreau (2378) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Shared 750 ml. bottle, poured to snifters, showing a hazed, light gold, almost straw color, with a wispy layer of white head froth, and spots & strands of clingy lacing. The nose was musty yeast, light grain, and the presence of lemon, and dry, white wine/vinous hints. Light bodied, with lively carbonation, lightly sweet & tart, with very hidden alcohol. Perky & refreshing.

Bottle. Light clear yellow golden pour with a quickly dissipating white head. Grape, citrus, leather, oak, beef jerky, spice. Spicy carbonation with citrus acidity and slight sweetness in a medium body. Perfect drink on a warm humid day

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Rated on 02-28-2013 at DFH Brewpub, Redobeth Beach, DE. This draft ber pours a small white head that mostly diminishes, transparent body, very little visible carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is grapes, wheat and yeast. The flavor is tart, sweet, grapes, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, somewhat complex overall and worth trying.

codfishh (59) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Poured from a 750ml bottle hazy straw color, thin white head. Smell is sharp with white wine aromatics. Taste is a great balance of Belgian phenolics and white wine, light body lively carbonation makes the finish pretty dry. Really nice beer.
