taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Dark yellow, not much head or carbonation. Aroma has a light of citrus leading into some sweet citrus flavors in the drink - almost a creamy caramel behind it all. Not big on this one - and Iíve had lemongrass beers that Iíve enjoyed.

marcus (6773) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours dark amber with an attractive beige head and a fruit and toffee aroma. There is a strange sweet fruit flavor that includes banana, grape and lemon with a dry slightly bitter finish.

drjay44 (2731) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2011
650 ml. bottle. Pours an almost non existent fizzy, head, over a clear dark gold (SRM 6) body....nose is cinnamon, apple, lemon peel, grape, cheap perfume....taste is sweet sugar, grape, lemon, light cinnamon, finishing with a light soapy perfume....mouth feel thick, sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This is a very different brew. It is partly apple cider, partly sweet soda, with a touch of Grandmaís perfume, and almost makes it to a real beer qualia. But the very heavy sticky, grape/sugar dominates completely. It is an interesting experiment that really didnít work for me and is reminiscent of some of Brewdogs experiments with I/DIPAís aged in a Scotch barrel. But if they donít try, they canít get to real brilliance. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6

smith4498 (3066) - Miami, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with off white head. Aromas of wheat, citrus, grapes and sugar. Cloyingly sweet sugary flavor dominates. Faint wheat flavor with some grape juice and lemon. Full body with soft carbonation and a syrupy mouthfeel. Not light and refreshing like a typical wheat beer.

markwise (4543) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Sampled at Cajun Cafeís 2011 Fall Beer Festival. Pours a mostly clear yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is lemony on the surface with some light grape notes under it and some sweet malt behind. Flavor is lemony at first followed by some mild sweetness and the light wheat behind. Interesting, the body is a bit thick for a wheat ale, but then it is a 9% wheat ale on top of that.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle:   Orangish straw, fairly hazy, thin sudsy white head, dies quickly, leaves little lacing.   Pale wheaty nose, very slight white grape juice, lemony, but moreso a non-descript citrusy aroma.   As it warms the white grape juice becomes more pronounced.   Interesting nose.   Strong sweet grassiness on the tongue, a bit lemony, again with the white grape juice.   Warming, but not alcoholic.   Wheatiness is minor.   Had I had this blind, I wouldnt know what to make of it... probably a spiced like beer.   Yeah, more of a spiced beverage than a Wheat Ale.   Needs some more body, wheatiness.   Its okay, hides the 9% ABV very well.   However, not something I would probably go after again.

Ratman197 (10196) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Bomber poured a clear gold with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of wheat, lemon and light white grapes. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of wheat, lemon and white grapes with a smooth lingering lemongrass finish.

TheBeerGod (5336) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle - Limited Release #5 Fall 2011. Pours orange-amber with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is citrusy and herbal while retaining and pleasant sweetness along with soft grains. Taste is more on the sweet side with sweet malt, citrus, candied fruit (lemon drops), lemongrass, grains, herbal notes and soft alcohol. Body medium with a thin, creamy carbonation and slight warmth from the alcohol. Ends with more candied fruit (lemon drops), lemongrass, sweet malt, grains and alcohol. Deceivingly tasty for a 9% ABV beer. This is an easy drinker!

From tap at Sunset Grill. Pours cloudy yellow to orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild citrusy and wheaty malty. Estery fruity and mild citrusy flavoured. Mellow yeasty and light citric. Bitter and mellow estery finish.

poisoneddwarf (1760) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bomber. Limited Release #5, Fall 2011. Bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours hazy gold with a medium off-white head that falls into a skiff of foam after a minute; beer looks completely flat 3/4 of the way through the first glass. Aroma is peppery, lemony. The muscat comes through faintly. Taste is bittersweet with a dry bitter finish. Mouthfeel is syrupy, like grape juice is. The beer reminds me of Stoneís last Vertical Epic, which also was brewed with Muscat. Not as good as that one, but still pretty good.
