...on tap at Mermaid Juice. Yellow with extreme carbonation that fizzes till its gone. Small white head with some lacing. Aromas of grapes and yeast, had a slight citrus note. Finishes slightly prickly with some grape and yeast. I was pleased with this one, and glad I had it on draft.

Excellent beer! Poured at a good temperature with fizzy, small, off-white head that quickly settled and a bit of lace. Color is a clear, light yellow with plenty of racing bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, grapes, and beer. Flavor is absolutely outstanding! This is the best grape beer Ive ever had!! The grapes add a bit of sweetness but that is perfectly balanced by the fresh tart style of the beer and robust carbonation along with the yeast bitterness and of course, hop. Body is bang on perfect; ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, quite long, and extremely drinkable. Wish I had more.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Draft pour. Pale yellow with almost no head. Light carbonation. Smells like summery fruits and earth/grass. Light mouthfeel with flavors of soft fruit, natural sweetness and very mild hops. A great summer beer. Not too sweet and easy drinking.

From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. It pours a highly carbonated pale yellow with a fluffy, foamy white head. The aroma - is this a hefe-weiss? I get something akin to wheat all around with pale malts and a subtle hops. The body is medium. The grapes really erupt in the flavor. I get none of it on the nose but it is entirely evident in the taste.

750mL bottled on 2012E. $14.49 at Olive Tree Market in OB. Clear pale straw with a small white head, fading to a thin ring before long. White grapes up front, wheat and cracker malt behind--smells fairly dry. Flavor follows suit with the grapes and wheat blending nicely. Flavor has the addition of some pear notes. Semi-dry crisp wheat finish with bitterness peaking at a 2ish--pretty mild. Alcohol masked very well. Medium body with light carbonation. Nothing crazy complex or anything, but it was tasty. Nice hybrid.

Bottle pour very pale yellow. Nose of grass and tart fruits. Taste very much like sweet Asti Spumante, or perhaps a carbonated Sauvignon blanc. Ether way, more predominant wine flavors than beer flavors.

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow golden color with a small white head with spotty lacing. The aroma had white wine, dry grass, mild spices, white pepper with mild hop presence. The flavor is very white wine/asti spumante, light grassy, light funk, mild spices with light pale malts. Interesting, but not very beer like.

Pours clear, pale gold with a dissipating white head, nice lacing, and lively carbonation. Aroma is slightly funky, with fruity wine aroma as well. Tastes dry and crisp, with a nice balance between wine and malt. Slightly tart on the finish. Strange beer, but certainly not bad.

It took some time before this became available here in SWVA. Pours light yellow (think Budlight) with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is light with some complex fruit aromas and a tad of diacetyl. Taste is dry, cidery, crisp and refreshing. I dont see how in the world this is 9% abv and I will bring in a sample to lab to have it analysed. Complex and interesting; boy I like this one.

MadRobin (2955) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle in a class at Gilly's Craft Beer & Wine in Rockville, MD. Clear, bright straw-yellow with a small white head and fair lacing. Aroma of funk, pilsner malt, grapes, wine, caramel, mustiness and acetic sourness. Taste of grapes, funk, sourness, caramel and pilsner with a dry, tart finish. Medium/light body and high carbonation. While still cold, this beer was a bit off-putting, with strong acetic and musty elements like those often associated with a wine that has turned. However, after letting the beer warm (and breathe) a while, the flavor and aroma vastly improved and became most intriguing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
