2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Governors Island Brewfest. I enjoy fruit beers but this one was just average. Poured a (yep) deep purple with a strong, mostly white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and some fruit - grape? raspberry? Flavor had moderate sweetness but seemed a little muddled. I want my fruit beer crisp and clean. Not unpleasant, though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Colour of unfermented wine must with a thin white head. An interesting arma of Epsom salt, sulfurs and Welch grape juice. In mouth, sweetish grape must in mineral water, nice little salty notes, overall, a bizarre and off experiment. Tasted at CNY brewfest, Feb. 6 2010.

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.

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.

3.3 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.

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

Part of a sampler at brewpub. I found all the brews to be better than average though I don’t remember specifics for most of them. It is worth mentioning that the sampler here is very generous with glasses that are big enough to really give you enough to form an opinion. This is the only sample I did not finish. It tasted like a perfectly good beer ruined by the addition of someone adding in grape juice. Not for me.
