look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance: decent usual color

Smell: some citrus came through

Taste: the color of the flavor is dark orange, grains and citrus

Mouthfeel: moderate body. each sip was a bit challenging since the aftertaste was rugged.

Overall: i'm not crazy about summer beers. of those I've tried this is average/corporate quality.

Pours a cloudy, gold color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and poor lacing. Smells of Cabernet, pale malt, and slight sweet malt. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. I agree with the previous post, that the strong Cabernet flavor, does not hamper the easy drinkability. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong Cabernet, sweet malt, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, lacking in appearance, but the Cabernet comes through strongly in aroma and body.

Had this at the Houston Flying Saucer during their 10th birthday party.

A - Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head that leaves lacing behind

S - Has a very winey nose with slight wheat getting through

T - Follows the lots of Cabernet some wheat with some tartness in the flavor

M - This beer has a light body with medium carbonation to it

D - Well I guess this is about as close as you can get to a sessionable barrel aged summer beer its very enjoyable with a very good taste thats easy to drink if you see this ever its a must try
