Bottle from Whole Foods Alexandria. Pours orange with a white head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma of wheat malts and white wine. Medium bodied with a slight syrupy texture. Flavor of pale wheat malts with moderate notes of chardonnay and lemon grass. Tamed herbal bitterness. Not bad, but I would love to get more lemongrass, and perhaps less body and more dryness. robforbes (2266) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2012
pours a semi-clear light orange with a very thin white head, and no lacing.
smell is of wheat, yeast, and slight amount of lemongrass.
taste is refreshing, citrus, wheat, slight banana, and some lemongrass. ends a little sticky. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Pale. A vinous, tart nose. Very wine-y, the lemongrass plays a surprisingly small part. Relaxed carbonation. It’s like a sweet wine but with an uplifting tang in the finish. Lighly oily and with a great belly-warmth. A little sweet and a little sickly in a bile kinda way. Probably the most wine-like beer I have ever had. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle @ 18th R G. Dark yellow golden. Smells sour with apeachy note. Tastes spot, but not in a good way. A little flat with a fruity finish. Beerdrinker79 (2218) - Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2011
22 oz. bottle- Pours slightly hazy golden with a thin head that reduces quickly to a thin blanket and ring. Aroma is wheat, very citrusy lemon, fresh and clean. The flavor is wheat, alcohol burn, lemongrass (does lemongrass taste like a cross between lemons and grass?), and I definitely taste the muscat grapes, very interesting and unique, it is a cross between tart and creamy. I have only had one other beer that used wine grapes like this, and that was the vertical 10 from Stone, I think that was better, but this is pretty damn good as well.

Fruity apple bubble gum aroma. Hazy golden color with a small white head. Sweet sharp beginning with a light floral bitter finish. Bierkrug (2129) - - FEB 1, 2012
650 ml bottle had in Germany with very much thanks to Travlr for taking his time to bring this all the way from America. Pours cloudy yellow to orange with a very small off-white head. Aroma is a fine mild citrus and wheat maltiness. A very estery fruit and strong citrus flavor. Mellow yeasty and light citric. Bitter and mellow estery palate. A srange beer with a lot of added flavor. This really shoud be a fruit beer. pinkzambia (2073) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle: clear gold with a sweet aroma of sweetn oranges and yeast. Honey and nutmeg in the flavor. Super sweet aftertaste. Ok monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Decent. Pours a beautiful orange color. Smell is a light lemon smell. Taste is very lemony, very sweet and a little bit of sour. Quite a bit of alcohol overtones. Has a little bit of a malt liquor taste. Decent, but won't have again. Had in the bottle.

Hazy yellow with little evidence of foam. Lemon and grape are certainly noticeable. Grainy flavors are not blended well. Finish is dry and funky.
