phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Pour from a 22 oz. bottle at Microfest 2012. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Lemon citrus and grape juice lead the way, with lemongrass and other fresh herbs, wheat, caramel malts, and a woody note. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, wheaty, juicy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Weird beer, but pretty tasty.

marcus (6497) - 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.

5000 (6300) - 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.

Bomber shared by Mike, thanks man! Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium white head. An odd nose of lemongrass and fruit. The flavor is almost dominated by the white grape juice, very odd and funky, a bit thin at times, juicy and some light lemongrass. OK.

(22oz bomber thanks to mora2000) clear gold with no bubbles. Nose of bubblegum, grass, sweet, cotton candy, and sweet fruit. Taste of grass, cotton candy, sweet, bubblegum, just a really sweet, undercarbonated beer.

Sampled on 12/3/2011. This wheat beer pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing. The aroma is cereal, Muscat grapes, fruit and sweet. A light to medium bodied wheat beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, with lots of Muscat grape flavor, there is a hint of lemongrass at the finish. The hops are herbal and earthy. Light carbonation. Interesting blend of flavors. I like the way the Muscat grapes mix and blend with the wheat/malts and the lemongrass. A touch of grape tannins at the finish. Overall it a touch sweet but it works. Hides the 9% alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
