3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Iím surprised by the many low scores on this. Maybe Iím rating it higher since my earlier beer was not so good. If that is true, then I will adjust this next time I drink it! Aroma is floral and light; color is gorgeous with amber/orange. Small head faded quickly. Taste is great, very cool marriage of a strong Belgian blonde with zesty white wine grapes. I can clearly taste the Sauv Blanc and Muscat. Very crisp and clean finish and the after burp is sweet! A very enjoyable beer. I think my wife would love this which means I need to go buy a couple more!

Poured a bright golden yellow color, nose was heavily vinous with a hint of banana, taste was almost identical to thunderbird wine. This one should definitely be served in a paper bag.

Bottle. Orange pour with very little head. Flavor is is semi-sweet juice, yeasty, some belgian malt, and wine essences. Aroma is grapey and yeasty; pretty strange to me. Flavors seem fabricated.

22oz bomber pours a thin, white head that dissipates quickly. The body is light auburn. Aroma and flavor are distinctly Belgian. Lots of spice. Flavor starts a little sweet but finish tart. Very nice brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden yellow with a small white head that fades to a ring. Yeasty aroma with burnt wood, white grapes, floral notes, and very mild alcohol. The flavor is mostly white wine. Some tripel characteristics come through. Smooth mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Mildly alcoholic with a bone dry finish. For what it is itís not that bad, but itís not quite what I was expecting. Has a crisp, almost cider-esque taste. Can see this being refreshing on a hot summer day.

The appearance of this beer shows a hazed color that also has a small thread of a white foam at the top. The aroma of this beer has a sweet fruity start and ends with a hint of hops towards the end. The taste of this beer starts with a intense flavor of white wine and has a slightly floral ending.

Bottle shared by dragonstout. Thanks B! Pour was a slightly hazy orange color. Aroma was fantastic! So incredibly fruity! Grapes, apples, oranges and lemons. Flavor was sweet and sticky up front. Caramel and raisins. With just a slight hop finish. Very good! Cant wait to try all my other vintages now!

Pours clear amber into a snifter. White head with little retention quickly recedes to nothing leaving no lacing. Looks like brandy...white grape aromas. Soft with front to back fruity grapes. This is as close to wine as any beer Iíve ever had...but quite drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by WesIRS. Pours a clear golden color like apple juice with nice very white thin bubbly head. Aroma is very similar to a bottle of sparkling wine with a somewhat herbal thing going on. Taste is very dry with a spice characteristic and some Belgian yeast flavors and some bitterness of course. Frothy smooth pallet, and definitely doesnít taste like 9.5% alc. Overall pretty good.

22oz bottle 10/20/10 (Binnyís-Downers Grove)-48į in Snifter-Pours a clear orangish amber with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, malts, and spices. Taste of the same with a bit more yeast coming through on the back end along with the citrus. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and hides the ABV well. A little wine taste on the back end. Nicely done.
