crazyvin (1977) - New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 Poured a nice pinkish amber hue with a nice white head that had good retention and no lace. Aroma had a nice mix of wine grapes, mild caramel malts and a nice grapefruit hop note. Flavor had some nice hop notes, leaning towards the grapefruit side, mild flavor from the grape musts and a nice delicate sweetness.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on what seems to be one of the first nights of settling in to winter during the Thanksgiving holiday work week. Appearance is rather unique, grape / amber / ruby with heavy cloudiness and a light white rim. Aroma is like hoppy grape juice, which sounds real weird, but smells rather nice. Taste is equally interesting, finishes dry with a sweet grape flavor, heavy carbonation, light hopiness, not sure if Iím liking this one. First time I tried this I was floored, but this isnít tasting the same to me. Not bad, but not really good.

Pours a hazy orange red with a very minimal white head. Aroma of earth and malt. Flavor of grape, malt, and citrus hops. Interesting beer.

A hoppy wine, or a grapey beer? Just a weird mix that isnít as satisfying as either a good red wine or IPA.

Bottle shared with daje
Red, clear, thin white head. Smell of raspberries, grapes, dusty hops. Moderate sweet, malty, some grapes, sulfide, not at all inviting. Moderate bitter; a disappointment i have to say

ScottWallace82 (70) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a pinkish, light burgundy color with a white head. Faint grape and malt smell. Medium mouthfeel. Tastes like a mix of red wine and cheap malt liquor.

Bosco (178) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Carmel color Very nontraditional IPA taste, at least on the IPA side of the two prominent flavors. On the wine side, Iím getting pleasant, light, red wine components. Not a bad effort for Dogfish but just not my kind of style. $9.99/multi sixer at Wegmans, Leesburg VA

bkurtz (860) - PERU - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle - Pours a peach/amber with a small, fizzy head. Wine and fruit aromas. Taste like an ale aged in white wine barrels. All good but the finish, which ends a bit off. Very refreshing, a good ale & wine combo. The more I drink this, the more I like it. I know Syrah is a red grade, but I get a white wine flavor and taste.

wlajwl (3999) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Aroma is bread, grapes and a mild hint of nuttiness. The flavor is malts, citrus, nuttiness, fruit/grapes and a mix of mild heat/tart/slightly bitter in the finish.

Bottle. Caramel color with purple hue. Thick pink head with some lacing. Grape aroma. Hops and fruit upfront; grape notes. Medium-long fruity finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hangunder (260) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
Smells quite nice, grape juice, acidity, citrus hops. Not overly complex but nice. Looks beautiful, read with streaming effervescence, thick long lasting white head. Taste doesnít impress too much, upfront citrus hops and grape juice, finishes with cat-pee like hops and a slightly sweet finish. Hops here donít go to well with the grape must. Light bodied and average carbonation.
