KornDogg (570) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle. Light grape aroma. Clear golden body with thin, dissipating head. Flavor begins sweet with hints of grape and pear. Tastes like a carbonated juice, no hints of alcohol, hides the abv well. A very different beer...

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Best before October 21, 2013.
Appearance: Crystal clear golden body showing off lots of carbonation. The short white head quickly dissipates, very thin and frail texture.
Aroma: The aroma is sweet of apple juice and honeysuckle with a hint of sweet tangerine.
Taste: The flavor leans sweet with honey undertones with apple and orange throughout. Very fruity.
Palate: Full-bodied yet spritzy.
Overall: This is past the best before date but it drinks very nicely. This is a great beer to share with wine drinkers, it merges the styles very nicely.

Aroma and taste of grapes. It is more similar to a grape juice than to wine, but it is a nice drink. Not much of an aftertaste.

750 ml bottle, best by date of Oct2113 stamped on the bottle. Guess Ive had this in the fridge a while! Served in a tulip, the beer pours a clear dark gold color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, and there isnt much lacing at all. Aroma is nice but very light, the brew smells like bready/wheat malt, white grapes and a bit of booziness. It tastes like bready/wheat malt, tart grape juice, white grapes, and some floralness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its a bit slick and coating with moderate carbonation. Im thinking I might have waited too long to drink this one, but it really wasnt bad at all. Still, if this is ever released again in the future I should try this fresher to see how it is.

Some raisin, some alcohol, pale, sparkling, white foam, light sweetness, fizzy. Nice fresh beer for a sunny day.

reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Winey nose, super crisp and effervescent. Amber with little to no head retention. More like a wine than a beer. Goes down like a light beer, but at 8.5%.NOTE: Not a good beer with wings.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear, dark gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of white grape juice with a little dank wheat. Taste is slightly tart, winey grape juice with a little wheat. Light bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Fizzy carbonation and a surprisingly long finish. Overall, not bad. Drinkable and enjoyable, but I was expecting more.

Clear bright gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth, turning a little dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Smooth malt and a nicely judged amount of grape. Not cloying and not acid. Minerally finish with lager like pale malt character. Light and refreshing.

bottle. Golden with small head. Strong wheat beer aged in wine barrels. Light tartness from the wine. Good, but not great.

9/20/2013: Blue Moon Proximity... Pale straw color with quite a bit of off-white foam on top. Smells a lot like a white wine (Reisling, actually). The flavor is mostly semi-sweet Reisling with just a slight musty wheatiness hiding underneath. There is a pretty high level of carbonation, so this beer feels light and airy on the palate, not unlike Champagne. Truth be told, the alochol level is really well-hidden. Overall, this beer isnt bad, but its clearly more wine than beer since the fruitiness and flavor of the white grapes dominate. Furthermore, this beer is truly way too expensive for what it is. For a truly excellent blend of beer and wine, try Dogfish Head Sixty-One! Draught sample(s) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #53 for this beer.
