Blue Moon's Proximity

(1/2) > >>

nateo:
Blue Moon's latest "crafty" beer. It's half wheat malt, half sauvignon blanc grape juice. Fairly uninspired, but inoffensive. Not worth the price tag ($8, IIRC). It tastes exactly like a mix of Blue Moon and a sauvignon blanc wine, which is what it is, so I guess that makes sense.

It could be really cool if done properly. I think I'll try to brew something like that soon.

Dogfish Head had a beer named Red and White that was a Witbier aged in Pinot casks.  It was really good.

I had one of their wine/beer hybrids years ago, but I hated it. My palate wasn't as 'refined' back then, so maybe I'd like it now.

I'd say it was really weird and somewhat drinkable.  Horses for courses....

I rather liked it (the DFH red and white, that is).  I can't say I have very high hopes for the new new "crafty" blue moon, though I'd probably try a bottle just for the purpose of posting a review (but I'm not going to buy a sixer just to post a review).
