Quite an interesting wheat ale! I’m digging the combination of lemongrass and muscat grape juice in this brew. Tart and tangy; I have visions of various seafood dishes running through my mind right now!! Don’t ask for recommendations; just buy a bunch of bottles of this brew and come on over for a feast! This is a brew truly made to pair up with some succulent food; by itself it is good but just needs something to go along with it.

Hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Softish palate with a little fine carbonation. A little marmalade orange dominated by big fresh lemongrass. Slightly sweet. Semi dry finish. Refreshing and very moorish. Really well done.

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.

a solid looking and tasting beer, the beer has a beautiful golden color with a touch of haziness. the aroma is strong with a bit of grass and lemon. the taste has a strong flavor of nice bread and wheatgrass. carbonation works well for a scrub. Highly recommended.

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.

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.

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.

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 Stone’s last Vertical Epic, which also was brewed with Muscat. Not as good as that one, but still pretty good.
