- Brew: Voodoo Doughnut Grape Guerrilla
- Style: Fruit Ale
- Serving: 22 ounce bottle
- ABV: 7.5%

- Pour: The Grape Guerrilla pours a hazy amber with a 1-finger, off-white head that holds its form and leaves little lacing.
- Nose: The nose smells like candy. It is very (artificial) fruity and sweet. There aromas of vanilla frosting, grape Hubba Bubba, grape Laffy Taffy, and subtle light grains and leafy hops.
- Taste: The taste follows the nose... it is sweet, fruity, and a little grainy and hoppy. There are big notes of candied artificial grape (Laughy Taffy and grape soda), light malts, and light grassy hops.
- Mouthfeel: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation, the mouthfeel is smooth and crisp with a thin, sweet finish.
