750mL brown bottle dated October 21 2013

Blue Moon Proximity poured a clear soft golden color forming a 1/2-finger white head that dissipated to a very small collar of foam with no lacing. The nose is floral, dominated by light fruit, green grapes and grassy. The taste is also dominated by sweet grapes and light citrus with just a touch of wheat noticed. Mouth feel is light, crisp, and clean with medium carbonation.

Proximity has wine like characteristics with just enough pale wheat to "save it". Not sure this beer is an American Pale Wheat Ale...then again not sure what style it is - maybe a Hybrid Style Fruit /Vegetable Beer???

Ug, friend brought this and I decided I would jot down some notes to see how bad it could be.

Light fizzy head disappears quickly, clear watery golden color.

Nose sad mild white wine, little fruity, poorly fermented lager, light malts, little husky, light unhappy lager, mostly like cheap white wine.

Taste light and little unhappy lager, icky lager yeast esters, very light white over oxygenated slightly tart wine, light dusty malt, dry finish with light sweet malt, sweet adjunct too, mild very mild bitter. No skunk at least. Some wheat character though.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb, surprisingly light on alcohol.

Overall barely a beer, very cheap and not well done in any aspect. But at least it's not offensive and it's somewhat tolerable.

A- Pours light golden in color and fairly clear. Small head forms and is gone just as quickly. Lacing isn't there without the head.

S- White grapes, light and grassy scents, and a bit of wheat malt.

T- Light and grassy up front, but then the wine flavors kick in. The grapes make a brief appearance, but then give way to a bit of wheat flavor and traditional dry wine flavors. Really follows the same flavor profile as a sauvignon blanc, but tastes a little stale, could be due to the age of the bottle.

M- Light in body with high carbonation to go along with the heavier flavor. Sits in the stomach a little, but not too badly.

Overall, this isn't really a beer person's beer. This would be a good crossover for the wine drinker, with just more prominent wheat flavors.

750mL (bottled October 2013) into a tulip. Pours a crystal-clear straw color w/ a 1-finger white head, minimal lacing.

Aroma is very light. Pale bready malt. Really neutral.

Taste is fruity, grainy, sweet. Pale wheat malt and sugary sweetness (presumably the grape). Maybe a hint of floral hops, but minimal.

Mouthfeel is light, weak, on the watery side.

Overall, a disappointing beer. Not bad, just bland and uninteresting. When I saw this for around $6 I thought I might have found an under-the-radar bargain. Probably should have known better.

750 ml bottle, best by date of Oct2113 stamped on the bottle. Guess I've had this in the fridge a while! Served in a tulip, the beer pours a clear dark gold color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, and there isn't much lacing at all. Aroma is nice but very light, the brew smells like bready/wheat malt, white grapes and a bit of booziness. It tastes like bready/wheat malt, tart grape juice, white grapes, and some floralness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and coating with moderate carbonation. I'm thinking I might have waited too long to drink this one, but it really wasn't bad at all. Still, if this is ever released again in the future I should try this fresher to see how it is.
