My dad is a fan of this brewery and brought me back this growler for Fathers Day.

A: looks like a nice beer. Crisp, clear, copper gold. Had a nice pillow of foam on the top after I poured from the growler

S: smells a lot like a wine/ beer with grapes. Not a wine person, so that's really the best way I can describe it. It's a malty, grape smell. Not bad by any means. Very interesting

T: ok, I'll admit I was dreading this. I don't like wines, I don't like grape juice. Both pointing to me not liking this beer... Really it's not bad. It's odd in a good way, and goes down real easy in the heat. The first 16ozs (served in a tulip) were gone in 15 minutes.

M: above average. Not super creamy, but crisp like a good summer beer should be

O: I like it. It's a good summer beer. I don't think I would seek it out, but I'd drink it again. If you like grapes/ wine/ beer and are in the area of the brewery, check it out. You might like it

Cheers!

This beer pours a cloudy amber-gold color, although I kept expecting it to have a purplish-orange tinge…
only because it smells to be exactly like grape Faygo. And that’s not appealing. There’s a touch of grape jelly on it.

Tastes like a middle-of-the-road wheat beer, mixed with the grape soda. There’s a hint of bittering backing the grape jelly wheat beer blend. Bleah.

3.5/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Le Cheval Blanc pint glass. Pours a clear golden blonde with three fingers of fizzy rocky head, that drops slowly to a nice cap.

Aromas of unoaked white wine, grainy malt, no hop aroma.

Flavors of grape juice, grainy malt, crackers, but no hops. A slight astringency in the short finish.

Mouthfeel is medium/light, with a winey astringent bitterness, good level of carbonation.

Overall an interesting beer. Very sessionable for a 7% brew.

M: Light body with good carbonation

O: A decent light summer beer.
