Pours a clear pale golden with a robust eggwhite head that diminishes quickly. Plenty of small rising bubbles. Aroma is white grape juice and malt liquor! Taste is dry slightly sour white grapes and high gravity malt liquor. Some fusil alcohol in the taste and some warmth after the swallow. This isn’t terrible, but its clearly overpriced for what you get. $8.30 for the bottle should not be any higher than $4.50 for what you get. Assuming the pricing scheme doesn’t change, and why would it, this has been my last Blue Moon specialty beer. They just don’t have a good track record compared to most in the class this aspires to.

This beer while it has some quality flavors but the grapes are too acidic. The flavor has a nice white grape juice quality. But it falls short ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What a stepdown from the special Scaldis. This beer was drinkable but not for $9.!! The lightness of a white wine grape is certainly noticeble but it just seemed a bit flat. And the grape tastes okay.

2/13 Sample at Binny’s Downers Grove)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of wine. Taste of more wine than beer. This light bodied brew was not my style. Had too much wine.

The pour is pink/gold, white head. The aroma is red wine must, wheat, cereal grain. The flavor is grapes, tannins, pepper, yeasty. The finish is light pepper. OK.

drowland (9161) - Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle sampled at Jax Beer Fest 2013. Hazy golden pour with a small off-white head. Generic grapey wine aroma with pale malts and metallic notes. Sweet wine flavors with bready malts and more metallic aspects. Glad I didn’t have to buy this puppy.

thegreenrooster (4585) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a wheat ale base with some definite white grape juice. Flavor is dull and bland. Some wheat ale but none of the grapes show up. Finish is kinda thick and syrupy sweet. Picked up out of the bargain bin and that’s where this belongs.
