BadAprilia1000 (340) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours a clear reddish color with a thin white head. Aroma is very fruity, grape, light malt, not much else. Taste is sweet red grape, bitter like a skin of a plum, very thin cereal malt, and maybe a slight bitter but not much. Overall a very drinkable beer, but not very flavorful, still good for 6.5% too.

Light retention and very light lacing. Smells of Syrah grapes and apples. Tastes of Syrah grapes and apples. Barely any aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Catching up on some old ratings from Untappd -- First rated on 16 Jun 2013. Interesting. Not sure what to think about this one.

vyvvy (4499) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Pours reddish copper with a small off-white head. The aroma has caramel malt, cream, strawberry, light grape must and no hops I can ascertain. It has a medium / light body thatís pretty crisp and has a bit of sharp carbonation. Well, the taste certainly is unique. Starts off with a mix of semio-sweet maltiness, dry red grape flavors (but not real wine-like notes), spicy/piny hops and minerals. The finish has more mineral notes, lots of phenolic spice and an aspirin quality. Not fully sure what I think of this.

Poured with huge ultra lite brown head and lots of lacing that sticks around forever. Its like a lite IPA

BeerBreakfast (15) - Castle Rock, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Eh, pretty boring. Not very appealing to any of the senses. I can taste and smell the grape must and but doesnít seem to mix well with the beer. Bleh.

EithCubes (5180) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottled 01/06/14. Nose is hoppy, very rindy, and has good bitterness coming across, lightly dusty with grape, very appealing!. Pours extremely pale amber, approaching a purple/clear cider-like paling at the bottom, but closer to ruby up top, with a dense and soapy pink-tinged off-white head. Full body with avg carbonation, a little slick, relatively low bitterness for an IPA, mostly felt at the finish where it mixes with the weird tang of grape skin; itís a pleasing wave of strong tannins unlike those derived from overtaxed grains. Light spicy character, citric hops trying to lie somewhat low. Semi-dry at best but with interesting little eddies of unusual flavor combinations, but I could see a lot of palates refusing to take the sweetness/tanginess/grapiness accumulated over a full serving. This is an extremely weird experience to find in a beer bottle, but I canít deny the appeal -- very much like how Kalte Muschi or Calimocho elevates cola above the ordinary, and the mixture is really something greater than the sum.

Still needs moar hops.

DocJitsu (1153) - Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Pours a clear golden-copper color with a short light tan head. Lacing drags the insides of the glass as the head dissipates. Toasty malts and herbal and citrusy hops on the nose. Neither aroma dominates the other and seems to blend seamlessly. Thinner texture with a burning scrub starting midway. Juicy apricot and citrus up front. Finishes with a peculiar infected homebrew sourness. If not for that, this would be a lot of fun.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2014
12oz bottle at home - Iíve been excited to try this for a few months now. 61Min pours a pretty pink with a creamy off white head, looks really nice. faint grains and grape must for aroma. the flavor and body (palate) of this beer and where it completely loses me. the flavors just kind of wash over as bitter wine cooler. 60 minute is nowhere to be found, a weird and unsatisfying beer for me.
