3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.355l bottle @ Rattle N Hum. Surprisingly red in the glass this one. Kinda amber and red, with a small quickly sidesticking off-white small top. Not to inviting on the nose to be honest. A bit like a bad rose wine mixed with a amber ale and a pilsner. Above average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is thin oily. Red flavours with soft malts, some earthy root-vegetables, caramel malts and some lime lemonade. Not all that to be honest, but we finished the bottle quit elegantly 13.03.2013

This isnít my favorite beer in the world, but it is a uniquely tasty beer. The aroma is fruity with a hint of citrus. The bottle poured an amber purple hue with little lacing and medium head. It has a light body with a crisp finish. Overall I found this to be an enjoyable beer.

Pours light pinkish and surprisingly little lacing foam. Aroma of faint hop, not nearly as plentiful of aroma as the regular 60. Flavor is lightly sweet and a bit more citrus hints of grapefruit. Finishes slightly weak. Bigger fan of the regular but like the twist

Bottle. Pours like a pretty rosť with a blush white head. Sweet candy orange aroma, with a bit of hay. Flavor is red wine, with a resinous sweet hop note. Finishes earthy, dry, with a back note of grape juice.

Clear light burgundy pour with a thin white head. You can tell this has the grape content by the color. Taste kind of reminds me of a dry red wine. I always wonder if Samís trying to pick up the wine drinkers with this one. If so, why not open a winery? But it is well done...enjoyed it.

Pours a copper color with a very slight purple hue. Little to no head at all. Carbonation bubbles look larger and more soda like but not quite that large. Smells a bit like stale grape juice. Canít really place anything in the flavor other than some grape. Dry finish.

From the bottle. Pours a dull dark purple with big pink frothy head. Immediately the nose in vinous, hops, fruit, floral. Very delicate flavors, rose type flavors, with light caramel, floral character comes through again. Seems almost like a watered down sparkling wine. Interesting, but doesnít do it for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish tan with a hint of purple, light lacy head. Floral aroma with light wine aroma. Flavor: is it wine, is it beer? Who cares. I like it. Grape flavor dominates a bit but still a good balance. If I feel like a beer I would choose something else, if I feel like wine there is a good chance I'll go 61.
