3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy reddish-purple color with a thin and fizzy pinkish-purple head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Vinous aroma with wheat and malt notes. Medium body with flavors of grape juice and grainy malt. The finish is fruity with a grape and wheat aftertaste. Decent overall.

I don’t remember much about this one, other than that it tasted strongly of grapejuice and stale beer. Not the best of their offerings. Had on tap at the brewery. Most of their beer was pretty good, but not this one.

Draft. Pours reddish with a thin head. Aroma is like grape juice, but not quite as sweet. The flavor has grape juice, red grape skins, light grainy notes, and a nice dry finish. Not too sweet.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2011 Draft at rattle. Pours a Bright purple pink with no lacing. Aroma is fresh grape juice. Mouthfeel is thin and syrupy with notes of dry grapes. Simple, but to the point, and most of all original. I cannot recall the last time I tried a beer that was so uncanny to drinking grape juice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Red ruby color. Head us pinkish. Smells of strawberry, rasverry and fruit. Similar to a whear beer, but more like a hybrid between fruit and whear. Like harponn ufo rasberry hefe but more flavorful

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Purple color with some haze, very little head. Strong concord grape aroma, not much else to it. Very smooth, light bodied, a little tart. An interesting novel beer that I enjoyed trying but probably wouldn’t want to have more than the few ounces I sampled.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the 2010 NFB&WF at Martha Clara Vineyard. I’ll preface my rating by saying that I have soft spot for concord grapes. I enjoy them very much and grew them for years. Pours a hazy purple with a fizzy pink head. The flavor is concord grapes along with some mild malt. Not really getting any influence from the wheat. Effervescent and fizzy on the palate; this drinks more like a wine cooler than a beer. Not something I would drink regularly, but a nice summer refresher.
