Had wine/beer combos before but this is by far the worst. Tastes like musty old grape juice, horrible stuff.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of sour fruit, especially grapes. Tastes of grapes and honey, sweet, yet with enough bitterness to balance. Beer is medium bodied, yet easy drinking, a bit light on carbonation. Overall, a good beer.

I have little to no background in wine, but this beer definitely had a wine-y feel (as advertised). It was a sweet tasting white wine-like beer that tasted mostly of what I assume was muscat grapes. I have no idea what muscat grapes taste like, but I got a little honey and even littler spice with a grape like sweetness and a wine finish. Overall, a surprisingly good sweet beer that I would buy again.

From notes 8/23/13: Pours a clear orange honey gold producing 2 fingers of off-white, moderately lasting head that leaves only a little lace. Aroma is sweet and dry, honey, cereal, muscadine grape, clove and thin banana. Taste is sweet with honey, muscadine grape, other fruity hints, Belgian yeast character clove, a little alcohol and a metallic hint. Spicy finish, sweet aftertaste. Crisp flavors. I'm not enough of a grape man to recognize Muscat grapes but this Southern boy knows his muscadine grapes (a species native to the southeastern/south-central U.S. and it sure presents muscadine-like elements in both the nose and mouth. Alcohol while detectable is well hidden. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied with low carbonation, smooth but a little syrupy and tongue clinging.
