Aroma is a cross between floral and cough drop. The head disipates instantly leaving no trace at all. Amber orange color is hazy with minimal bubbling. Taste is slightly sweettart, with definate grape juice undertones. Slick texture, medium body and soft carbonation linger on the palate for some time. Overall it’s an interesting beer that I would have again. One of the better beers I’ve had from Widmer as they haven’t impressed me much to date. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 20, 2013
22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours light amber with a small head. Aroma of grapes, light lemongrass, light wheat, and light hops and malts. Flavor the same, with the grapes dominating. Average texture. A weird beer. drjay44 (3713) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2011
650 ml. bottle. Pours an almost non existent fizzy, head, over a clear dark gold (SRM 6) body....nose is cinnamon, apple, lemon peel, grape, cheap perfume....taste is sweet sugar, grape, lemon, light cinnamon, finishing with a light soapy perfume....mouth feel thick, sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This is a very different brew. It is partly apple cider, partly sweet soda, with a touch of Grandma’s perfume, and almost makes it to a real beer qualia. But the very heavy sticky, grape/sugar dominates completely. It is an interesting experiment that really didn’t work for me and is reminiscent of some of Brewdogs experiments with I/DIPA’s aged in a Scotch barrel. But if they don’t try, they can’t get to real brilliance. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6 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! thegreenrooster (4406) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a wheat malt base but not much else. Flavor is again wheat malt up front with maybe and ever so slight citrus and some sweetness. Hides the 9% well but do you really need a 9% wheat beer? It’s ok for a wheat, and a sample would be better than buying a bottle.

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. Nephilium (1819) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
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. steview (1037) - 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. pinkzambia (1932) - 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 Beaver (1802) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a dusting.
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.
