Slightly hazy dark amber with a medium, bubbly khaki head and a couple spots of wet lace.

"Fuck..." was my first thought at the initial whiff. "I'm just glad I didn't spend money on this" was my second. This smells like grape soda, with a little musty wheat, turning to cough syrup as soon as the alcohol is detected.

Taste is light wheat bread totally trounced by grape soda and Dimetapp.

Thin, but frothy, and simply too dry for the kind of weird ass "drink" that this is.

If this was a Christmas present to you, like mine was to me, re-gift it to the non-craft beer lovers in your life, they'll probably enjoy the novelty of it.

Grape Guerrilla pours a hazy darker copper color with a small non lacing head. Big aroma with lots of grape. Flavor is strong, lots of artificial grape; tastes like dimeatap. Good body and feel. Overall, big fake grape flavor, but, I kinda like it.

I'm sucker for these weird Voodoo Doughnut beers. I've had several, and none are ever THAT great. Grape Guerrilla is no exception. It smells like artificial grape candy. And the taste, is just not so good. It's a bit tart, like sour grape candy but mixed with OK beer.

22oz Bottle to snifter.

Believe it or not, it's not horrible.

LOOK: Deep Amber colored, medium creamy white head that fades to a film, but then stays.
AROMA: Dimetapp. Grape Drink. Grape Big League Chew.
TASTE: barley, wheat, grape drink, lemon. Medicinal finish (more dimetapp).
FEEL: decent carbonation; medium body.

Not horrible, but bad and reeks of artificial grape flavors.

Awesome Bottle, so had to continue with Rogue's Voodoo Doughnut series.

Pours an amber color with a white head. Smells like grape koolaid or a cheap wine. Tastes like malty grape through out the taste. Mouthfeel is light and easy to drink. Overall, it's different, but ok. Can't say I'd recommend it.

Near the bottom rim there is a code printed: "GD62 20160720 12:54"

Appearance: The body of the beer is a darker shade of brown and it is a bit hazy. The head is short with a creamy texture and an eggshell white color.

Aroma: It smells a bit like grape soda and aspirin chews. It does seem to live up to the grape in the title but it doesn't smell like actual grapes from the vine, grape juice, or wine. It smells like artificial sweetener or something chemical.

Taste: At first I was getting a bit of hop flavor but it is immediately replaced with this awful flavor that reminds me of aspirin chews. There is a bit of grape flavor in there but it leaves this horrible chemical flavor in the aftertaste. After sitting away from the beer for a few minutes I do start to pick up some grape flavor on the palate that tastes like real grapes but somehow when drinking the beer it just doesn't come through.

Mouthfeel: It is a very hard beer to drink and the mouthfeel of the beer doesn't really do it any flavors. It feels thin and lifeless. On the positive side the carbonation seems good.

Overall: It was not an enjoyable beer to drink. I would highly recommend against drinking this beer and I wouldn't drink it again.

The look is an average Amber color. The smell is literally grape kooliad with a hint of grape koolaid. The taste is also pretty much grape koolaid but if somebody used beer instead of water to mix with the powder. The feel is chalky with a tangy aftertaste. Overall this beer is somewhat of an abomination. I suppose that I appreciate the effort to step out and try something new but I wish I could forget about this beer. I wouldn't reccomend buying it ever.

This may be the most wretched thing I've ever drank! The brewers should be ashamed of themselves for actually selling this to people! I don't mind people experimenting with crazy flavors, but when it comes out this bad you need to suck it up and dump it!

Poured into a glass showed a cloudy Amber brew with a minimal head and had minimal lace, aroma was sweet grape kool-aid straight up but some malt came out later in the tasting. The aroma was sweet grape kool-aid at first but got a little more real later on in the tasting. Mouthfeel was light and refreshing but got a tad sticky in the aftertaste near the end of the tasting....overall I think they continue to keep the faith with this venture with Voodoo Doughnut and some wild flavors....take the leap and be nice for the effort.
