bought this and the impulse the other night.

have seen these at the store a bunch of times and wanted to give them a try. Was interested in the idea of a beer and wine mix-up.

honestly, looks like a bud light with no head, but i know you shouldnt judge a book by its cover. no head, some carbonation, absolutely no lacing.

it smells like grapes (of course), and not really much else. maybe some mild citrus notes.

it tastes like how it is described on the bottle, but not really in a good way. it tastes like savignon blanc and some type of light beer mixed together. on a positive note, they do mask the 8.5% abv very well. it cant be detected at all, in my opinion. mild bitterness.

mouthfeel is average. light and smooth with just a slight bitter bite. not much else to talk about.

overall i was hoping for more. glad i got this 30% off at a store where it wasnt selling, but i now see why it had been sitting for a while. not horrible, but not really worth full price.

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.

Blue Moon : Proximity

LOOK: Clear pale yellow. Fizzy white head forms and dissipates quickly, leaving no lace. Looks like a standard Coors product.

SMELL: Straw, damp hay, wheat malt, just a small dry fruit aroma.

TASTE: Ultra clean wheat malts and grape juice. Tastes little like wine, more like wheat beer with a shot of grape juice. Not bad, but keep this away from kids, this is like beer apple juice. To their credit, if this was 8.5%, you would never know it from the taste. Hardly any bitterness, light bodied, force carbonated, and drinks like carbonated juice. Grape skin? From juice? Hardly, not even tart really, just juicy.

OVERALL: Good for grape lovers, this beer makes me yearn for the German Purity Law, that would require this grape juice to be put to better uses.
