22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a dusting.Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
The aroma is sweet citric wheaty malts, honey and grapes.
The flavor is bready malts, sweet grape juice and honey with some musty yeast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and a bit watery with some slight spritzy carbonation.
Overall, it’s OK - overly sweet.
Slightly sweet aroma, with a hint of lemons and grapes. Pours a hazy amber, with a quickly fading white head. Really strong lemon flavor, almost overpowering. with just a hint of grapes in the end. Light on the palate, with a long finish of tart lemons. This beer comes across more like a lemonaid/beer mixture then a straight beer. It’s drinkable, but only if you really like lemons. halfonit (1412) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Pours a deep golden color. Aroma is of lemongrass, wheat, malt, and some citrus. Flavor is the same with the citrus really coming through in the finish. Leaves a nice and sweeter citrus finish. Good one! dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle from Halls Liquors. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. The aromas are lemongrass, white grape juice. The mouthfeel is slightly dry and bready with a medium body and light carbonation. Cheers! Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2012
I liked this beer for what it was - a solid wheat ale. However, the malt character and high alcohol content washed away the delicate fruity qualities of such a beer. While chilled it was great, and tasted great with hints of lemon, yeast and light hops. The aroma followed the same pattern, but was almost acidic and suggested a sour flavor. The only beer I’ve had where alcohol has killed it.

Bottled 22 oz sample. Beautiful appearance. Nice lemongrass flavour. Very drinkable wheat ale taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Dark yellow, not much head or carbonation. Aroma has a light of citrus leading into some sweet citrus flavors in the drink - almost a creamy caramel behind it all. Not big on this one - and I’ve had lemongrass beers that I’ve enjoyed. steview (1088) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Why the grape juice? Meh. Tasted like a few-days-old growler. Looked like it too. Not quite a wheat. Not quite a fruit beer. Not very refreshing like it might should be. Just a big ol’ clunker -- nothing offensive, but overall unsuccessful. It needs more carbonation. It needs to do without the grape juice. Focus on the wheat and spike it with lemongrass. Make it pop, Mr. Widmer and Mr. Widmer. GandGKevin (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Floral muscat and wheat aromas. Pours yellow with a small white head. Flavors of muscat grapes. Finishes with a little lemongrass.
