TheBeerGod (5045) - 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!

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Appearance: Near clear, deep golden body with a white head that deteriorates in a flash. Poof. Gone.

Smell: Decidedly sweet-scented, smelling of heady malted wheat, syrup, jellies, honeybear honey, and booze with little lemongrass showing.

Taste: Heavily sweet, quite sugary from the first sip on. Sugar, sticky honey, muscat jelly. No real hop character or bitterness to begin tempering this mess. Vein of acidity running through the middle. Again, not much lemongrass, mostly just raw sweetness. Faint, faint and a noticeable booziness on the thick, that-ain’t-exactly-luscious, toothsome finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: I was geared up for a sweet, heavy beer, but, ugh, this was just clunky, clumsy, and cloying. A sack of sugar would’ve been cheaper.

markwise (4276) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Sampled at Cajun Cafe’s 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.

Pours deep gold into a tulip. Off-white head with little retention recedes to hug rim and pool surface. Sweet white grape juice and lemon aromas. Thin with sweet wheat and grapes upfront turning to lemon in the lasting dusty finish.

nick76 (4144) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2012
The aroma is malty and slightly funky with a fruity/honey wine quality as well as an herbal citrus quality. The appearance is light hazy gold - orange with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with lots of alcohol. The palate is medium. Overall it’s interesting but not great.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, no head, and golden in color. The taste is wheat, lemons, and fruits. The taste is about the same with some tartness.

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Sampled at the at 18th Richmond gathering. Clear yellow pour with faint ring of white. Wow this is crazy tart. Those grapes just dry out the palate something awful. Massively sweet and tart and like a sweet white wine. Interesting. Very acidic.
