5 Rabbit Cerveceria Muscat Wheat (8/10)
It pours a cloudy pale gold with thin white head.
Being a wheat beer, the malt itself gives very little aroma. The predominant aroma is the Muscat grapes.
Flavor is mild, as would be expected for a wheat beer, with a wine like fruity note. It's mildly sweet. Hops presence is virtually non-existent.
There aren't reviews for this beer on RateBeer or Beer Advocate at the time of this writing, so I can't give you a comparable rating elsewhere. I found it to be a pleasant, easy to drink beer. It reminds me some of some of Dogfish Head's Ancient Ales like Chateau Jiahu or Ta Henket. I'm giving the beer an 8/10.
I sampled this particular glass at The Daily Growler in Upper Arlington some time ago. I've not see it available for sale in bottles or draft since then.
Sweet, Malty, Dry, Bitter, or Sour: Malty, Sweet
Spice Level: None
Hops Level: Virtually none
Dominant Flavors: White Grape
IBU: Unknown, but I’d estimate below 23
My Rating: 8/10
