tgncc (3020) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 19, 2013
The aroma is wheat, cereal grain, grape juice (like Welch’s). The appearance s a red wine/pink color, white head. The flavor is grape juice, wheat bread, cereal grains. The finish as an acidic quality, and red wine sourness.

DrSilverworm (8711) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2013
On tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2013. Clear reddish pink color. Minimal white head. Cranberry nose. Not as grapey. Pronounced, soft carbonation. Dry texture. Macro blue moon feel to it. More berry than grape, as far as fruits. Feels articificial. Kind of sweet taste. Not interesting at all, but very macro. No complexity.

alobar (3130) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bought in poor lighting. Pours purple with a pink head. Minimal aroma of grape. Tastes like grape soda. Hard to believe these are cabernet grapes. Worst beer I’ve had in a while.

shrubber85 (9146) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Draft. Cheap red wine and wheat malt aroma. Red with pink head. Watered down red wine flavor. Like a bad red wine spritzer.

Impulse was an impulse buy. Sounded interesting until I tasted it. Tasted like a grape soda. And a bad one at that. Was expecting more Was hoping for something similar to dogfish heads red and white, which i like.

madvike (3108) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Tasted blind. Pinkish-purple pour with a thin white head. Grape juice, a bit of dry red wine, and a touch of sweetness. Taste has a bit of honey, red grape juice, and a dry, white grape finish. Thin and smooth, with a bit of soft carbonation.

RedSox2004 (1449) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Watered down blood red with a smallish head and minimal lace. Tastes like a watered down sauvignon with a dash of soda. Unpleasant grape sweetness in the finish.

jeremytoni (3018) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2013
From a bottle poured a purplish color with a small amount of head. Light tart malty flavor with a quick finish.

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins. Pours like Strawberry Kool-aid: red violet appearance with a small pink head. Musty, nasty red grape, cheap wine, juicy, plum aroma. Boozy, tangy red grape, kind of jammy berry, light granola, shitty wine flavor. Wow, this is some rancid shit.
