From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.

28 Feb 2013, bottle. light yellow, clear, some steady bubbles, thick foamy head. nose is dry white wine initially, then fades into a lemony wheat beer. thin body and moderately fizzy. in reverse now, it is lemony wheat beer up front that has a slight white wine finish, though not quite as dry. meh.

750ml bottle poured into my Chimay Chalice. Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that fadded and leaves razor thin to no lacing. Smells of wine grapes, Wheat, coriander, and light malt. Tastes of all the same thing in the smell. Mouthfeel is mediumand slick with decent carbonation and a dry finish. Overall its decent but the appearance and mouthfeel kind of hurt this beer. Promising but didn’t live up to the potential it could of had. Glad I only paid $4.99 on clearance instead of the $9.99 they were originally ask for.

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 isn’t bad, but it’s 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.

jmagnus87 (3302) - 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.

bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2013
750 ml bottle, best by date of Oct2113 stamped on the bottle. Guess I’ve 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 isn’t 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, it’s a bit slick and coating with moderate carbonation. I’m thinking I might have waited too long to drink this one, but it really wasn’t bad at all. Still, if this is ever released again in the future I should try this fresher to see how it is.

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.

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...

alexsdad06 (10778) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours a pale yellow golden color with a large foamy off-white head. The aroma and flavor have a big white wine character, light wheat malts, sweet honey and floral notes while the alochol level is really well hidden. Light, spritzy body. Overall, this beer isn’t bad. This beer is too expensive for what it is.

onceblind (10528) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Clean clear golden with a head that doesn’t last at all. Musty grape-y nose with tones of wheat and nectarine and dry white wine. The flavor brings forth that punchy wheaty and nectarine-esque flavor. White wine dryness with a little boozy yeastiness. Slightly complex but not really my flavour, with the typical boozy esters you expect from a wine barrel aged project.
