3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear copper to purple body supporting a short lived tan head that exhibits pink-ish hues. The aroma is muted sweet berry and grape notes and not much else . . . well maybe a light currant fruit sensation in there too. The taste goes from a decent level of tartness and tannins and then to some sweet grape flavor fruitiness and a red wine note. Interesting, where a good load of sweetness is balanced out by tannin and tartness. Hmm? Not sure what to make of this beer though.

Bouteille de 12oz. Une robe rose avec une mousse légèrement rosée. Un nez de moût de raisin, on dirait du vin rosé. Une bouche aigre, amère, mince, simple. Peu de saveurs de raisins. Ordinaire.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Average head, little retention. Pinkish in color. Looks like grape juice mixed with an IPA. Nose is grape juice. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Taste is odd. Very dry and bitter. A little citrus. The wine grapes add an interesting tartness. Interesting idea, but I?m not a fan. I definitely prefer the sixty minute.

Light aroma on this. Darker orange in color with light cloudiness. Lighter start and light finish too.

Taste was expecting more but got light bitterness, grapes

Overall just wasn’t what I was expecting from the smell and color but still a good beer that I would suggest to a friend

Bonne idee mais il ne faut pas s’attendre a une verible ipa americaine. Cette biere est un hybride entre une biere et un vin rouge. Une curiosité... le continuious hopping n’apporte rien.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rather nice purple brown from a bottle. Aroma is grape and barnyard/hay, flavor is a dry grape, not Concord grapes or anything, definitely a wine grape, with a surprising bitter hoppiness that goes rather well. A shockingly different beer, but not a life-changer. Good beer.

Bottle at home while in Jacksonville. Pours a slightly pink amber with a white head. Lightly meaty fruit aroma... Medium body, medium carbonation. Lighty red berry jamminess next to some very light tannin stuff, grass... Its fine, a bit uneventful really.

Pinkish amber with a foamy white head. Caramel malty aroma with a touch of floral hops and wine. Flavor is a dry fruity malt with a nice, yet indistinct bitter finish. Light and very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated on 3-05-2015 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a medium sized off-white head that mostly diminishes, transparent amber body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, floral hops, musty, fruity, lightly earthy, and grape. The flavor is very sweet, floral, citrus hops, fruity, some malt, and some grape. This beer’s mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and it is light bodied. Overall, this is not one of my favorite Dogfish Head beers by any means. The flavor is not my thing at all.
