3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours slightly hazy golden with a thin head that reduces quickly to a thin blanket and ring. Aroma is wheat, very citrusy lemon, fresh and clean. The flavor is wheat, alcohol burn, lemongrass (does lemongrass taste like a cross between lemons and grass?), and I definitely taste the muscat grapes, very interesting and unique, it is a cross between tart and creamy. I have only had one other beer that used wine grapes like this, and that was the vertical 10 from Stone, I think that was better, but this is pretty damn good as well.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very wine-like, mostly of the muscat grapes. Flavor almost like a sweet wine. Mostly muscat grape flavor, maybe a hint of the lemongrass but not much. A little bitterness in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma floral, grass, citrus, appearance hazy, pale, nice head, tasted medium sweetness, medium bitterness, I would never guess this was 9%. Actually a very nice beer, the lemon grass is there, but too overpowering. Overall a nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale. A vinous, tart nose. Very wine-y, the lemongrass plays a surprisingly small part. Relaxed carbonation. It’s like a sweet wine but with an uplifting tang in the finish. Lighly oily and with a great belly-warmth. A little sweet and a little sickly in a bile kinda way. Probably the most wine-like beer I have ever had.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful label. Aroma from the neck of wheat, malt, and faint lemon. Pours fairly clear golden with thin white head. Lightly carbonated and smells like candy. Now & Laters? Not much aroma for me. Flavor is interesting. Seems very well balanced with little hint of a 9% ABV. Mild wheat flavor, a little faint lemony tart note, and a shwoosh of salty bittering hops on the finish. Wow! Subtle yet very nice drinker. There is a bit of a wine-like character to this brew, and I think that is carried by the salty & robust mouthfeel If you like wheat beers, this is a must try! Tasted from the bottle @ 56F.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Fremont Oktoberfest, Seattle, WA. Pours a slightly hazy straw colored with microfoam. Aroma is spicy, with tropical notes of lime and well...lemongrass. This was a very very strong beer. Refreshing in mouthfeel however, it finished very dry and was enjoyable. I would like to try this beer again, however due to its unavailability that might not be possible.
