COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amazing elixir is brewed with Muscat grapes and flavored with lemongrass. A sweet, fruity aroma with grape, lemon, and tangerine notes is backed with subtle herbaceous hop tones and a faint pulse of malt. The palate is mouth-watering, with a fruity sweet and tart palate that continues the aroma sensations, plus malty threads woven into the fabric. It's light, lively, and packs a punch. Just don't sing the song - please!

OBF 2004. Very punchy and chemical-like... has some spices in the nose with a vivid hop note... but the flavor is a weird hop, honey, curry and plant-like concoction. Leafy.

Light orange color. Aroma is grape sweet, honey and spices. A medium bodied ‘ale’. Malts are sweet and fruity. Muscat grape flavors are very evident and there are many wine like qualities and flavors here. Yet it still retains that malt/hop beer like balance. Nicely balanced. Very smooth taste. Light and refreshing, but it’s way to sweet to want to drink a lot of this beer. Hides the 9.8% alcohol very well. Another interesting and unique beer from Widmer for the OBF. Thanks Guys. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and sweet. Aftertaste is sweet.

(OBF04) Murky golden body with off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, banana, white grape, white wine. Taste is medium sweet, starts banana hefe before turning white wine replete with alcohol. Medium body. Different.

On tap at the Portland Brewers festival 04. Pours a light orange with a white head that leaves decent lacing. Strong floral aroma. Taste is very citrusy, almost grapefruity, with a big hint that this will be a strong brew, very malty, and the brew ends with almost no bitterness but a faint sourness. The alcohol taste didn’t take over this beer, and in fact was very well hidden. Strong tasting brew, but very drinkable and enjoyable.
