22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours light amber with a small head. Aroma of grapes, light lemongrass, light wheat, and light hops and malts. Flavor the same, with the grapes dominating. Average texture. A weird beer.

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

Bottle from Halls Liquors. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. The aromas are lemongrass, white grape juice. The mouthfeel is slightly dry and bready with a medium body and light carbonation. Cheers!

Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a wheat malt base but not much else. Flavor is again wheat malt up front with maybe and ever so slight citrus and some sweetness. Hides the 9% well but do you really need a 9% wheat beer? Itís ok for a wheat, and a sample would be better than buying a bottle.

Bottle @ 18th R G. Dark yellow golden. Smells sour with apeachy note. Tastes spot, but not in a good way. A little flat with a fruity finish.

Nephilium (1391) - Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Slightly sweet aroma, with a hint of lemons and grapes. Pours a hazy amber, with a quickly fading white head. Really strong lemon flavor, almost overpowering. with just a hint of grapes in the end. Light on the palate, with a long finish of tart lemons. This beer comes across more like a lemonaid/beer mixture then a straight beer. Itís drinkable, but only if you really like lemons.

Why the grape juice? Meh. Tasted like a few-days-old growler. Looked like it too. Not quite a wheat. Not quite a fruit beer. Not very refreshing like it might should be. Just a big olí clunker -- nothing offensive, but overall unsuccessful. It needs more carbonation. It needs to do without the grape juice. Focus on the wheat and spike it with lemongrass. Make it pop, Mr. Widmer and Mr. Widmer.

Beaver (1327) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a dusting.

The aroma is sweet citric wheaty malts, honey and grapes.

The flavor is bready malts, sweet grape juice and honey with some musty yeast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and a bit watery with some slight spritzy carbonation.

Overall, itís OK - overly sweet.

Bierkrug (2133) - - FEB 1, 2012
650 ml bottle had in Germany with very much thanks to Travlr for taking his time to bring this all the way from America. Pours cloudy yellow to orange with a very small off-white head. Aroma is a fine mild citrus and wheat maltiness. A very estery fruit and strong citrus flavor. Mellow yeasty and light citric. Bitter and mellow estery palate. A srange beer with a lot of added flavor. This really shoud be a fruit beer.
