look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

750 ml bottle, with best by date of October 21, 2013 printed on the label. My second beer / wine hybrid thing from Blue Moon's "Vintage Ale Collection". "Wheat ale brewed with the juice of sauvignon blanc grapes". My expectations aren't so great, especially after my experience with Blue Moon Crimson Crossing, but I'm going in unbiased.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Aggressive pour down the center manages to conjure just over a finger of fluffy white foam that dies down to a ring rather quickly. Body is a clear golden yellow with good clarity.

S - Doesn't really smell like much of anything to me. Bit of grains, wheat, maybe some honey, some crisp champagne yeast, and some nail polisher remover alcohol fumes, but nothing I would call "grapey".

T - Taste is maybe just a notch or so above the smell. There's hardly anything here, and what little flavor that does come through is gone and over with in seconds. Some wheat and grain flavor, hint of cheap vinous white wine, and that's about it. High alcohol content isn't noticeable at all.

M - Feel is crisp, clean, and smooth. Gone in seconds. Finishes like water, which I suppose is something of an accomplishment at 8.50% abv.

Overall, a fairly pitiful, but "safe" attempt at pairing cheap wine and cheap beer together. Hardly any alcohol detectable, but sadly also hardly any flavor. I'll have no trouble finishing this bottle, but it won't be something that I would waste my time with again, and it was definitely not worth the ten dollars that I paid for it.

Blue Moon Proximity ---3/5.

Poured from a brown 25.4 oz. bottle. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of grapes. Taste is also mild, grapes, some wheat and grains, a bit of alcohol, not bad but nothing special. Feels light in the mouth and overall this is a mediocre beer.
