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 (2728) - 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 (1252) - 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.

From a bottle poured a purplish color with a small amount of head. Light tart malty flavor with a quick finish.

adnielsen (9077) - 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.

maxwelldeux (3662) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a moderate pink head. Nose is very much like wine - cabernet sauvignon happens to be my favorite type of wine, so I like the nose on this. Taste has strong notes of grapes - it’s almost more like a wine than a beer. Interesting brew.

Palidor19 (2947) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2013
The beer has a distinction of nice red grape juice with a distinct malty flavor. There is hardly any hoppy bitterness. This is so distinct that its worth your time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is mostly wheat ale with a touch of wine. The appearance is purple with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. The palate is average. Overall a better than average beer but not by much.
