Tap at Of Love and Regret served in a wine glass. Medium fpdark amber pour with a dissipated white head. Sweet white grape juice aroma. Taste is similar with a whisper of exotic black tea and hop balance to keep it from becoming cloying. Very well hidden ABV. This is a delicious beer. Delicious.

Tap at Of Love & Regret. Pours a hazy ruby and deep ruby orange. Thicker off white head. Heavy toffee nose with extremely sugary cherry juice box. Taste is sugary, malty, loads of cherry juice box. Palate is mildly powdery and sugar loaded. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep amber pour murky with a thin layer of white head .... aroma of grape juice and light belgian fruity yeast/overripe fruits light berry ..... taste of white grapes and darker grape juice low carbonation .... sugary grape juice and some overripe fruits light berry flavors ... finish is dry and lightly bittersweet ... kind of an odd brew

On tap at Small Bar division. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a light grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot of earthy grains with a bit of backing grape and caramel. Flavor starts with a good amount of grapes that are both sweet and slightly tart with sweet grains and caramel.

Craft. Hazy deep amber beer, little white head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. A sweet and simple beer. Sweet malts with a little grape. Some fruits before the smooth finish. Carbonated sting at the very end. Not too much going on here but it’s okay.

Draft at DBGB kitchen with Ricky, Alfonso, and Christine. Wine glass.. nose is pure grape with some musk from the triple- sharp and fragrant. Taste to me was overall a big disappointment... wasn’t balanced, not sure if this was to be bitter, or sweet, had a dry, artificial taste (like the crystal light grape packets). Went terrible with food. I love Evil Twin but this was borderline putrid.

Draught @ Fanø¸ tap takeover, Dronning Louise, Torvet 19, Esbjerg, 6700 Denmark.

Muddy light milky cream coffee colour with a small, fizzy, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, white head. Rather disgusting appearance ;O( Aroma is (weak) light to moderate malty, light hoppy, moderate yeasty, grape. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration, sweet fruity yeasty, grape and grape tart notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

Tap (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
An odd one. Muddy appearance, no head at all. Clear, sweet white grape juice aroma, doesn’t fit well together at all for me. Taste is even weirder, a simple sweet breadiness, but it almost feels watered down by freshly squeezed fruitjuice. A bit raw, feels underattenuated. Sweet smooth palate, carbonation low. Finish sweet and bready, and with a nice bitter hoppiness. Something just doesn’t work about this for me.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
Draught at Fairbar, Århus
Hazy red-amber color, small creamy head. Aroma or smell of overripe fruits, dusty, a bit moldy and sourish; light peach and vinegar. There is a mild, delicate blend of flavors: some medium caramel and grape juice, pleasant; the bitterness is not too high, at least it doesn’t interfere with the fruits; it’s quite sweet, the backbone reminds the American attempts at Belgian Ales (and in this case, luckily there is no Belgian yeast character, to clash with the grapes; instead it’s a quite soft beer); the final tends to be more bitter and less fruity.
Despite the sub-par aroma, it’s a pleasant beer.

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2012
Draught at Fairbar, Århus. Hazy light amber with a small white head. Aroma is very sweet and fruity, pineapples, grapes, peaches, darkfruits, lightly toasted malts, yeast. Taste is much the same - sweet fruity, medium bitter with a strange minty finish. Medium body, soft carbonation.
