750 ml bottle. This pours like grape juice with a pretty purple head and a deep red clear beer under it. It kind of smells like grape juice, too, but more vinous. My first thought after one sip is that it resembles communion juice. Grape flavor with a bit of wood and malt. The wheat ale aspect filters in finally and seems to be little more than a vehicle for the grapes. My first thought was not far off. That being said, this is completely inoffensive and extremely drinkable.

Pours the cabernet color with a pink head like a kriek. Flavor is a light cab with a malty backbone...an interesting hybrid.

HA. Impulse is right. Saw this on the shelf and couldn’t help myself. Pours like grape soda with a big white head. Aroma is stale grape jelly. Taste is artificial grape sweetness. After a bit of grape flavor it just goes blank. Took a few sips then drain pour. Don’t make the same mistake I did, not worth the price.

Tap. Light purple pour. Smells of grapes and wine. Tastes like a fruit beer like berrywiess but also like wine a little bit. Interesting beer for something different.

Ratman197 (9686) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2013
750 ml bottle poured a hazy burgandy with a small lingering pinkish head. Aromas of red grapes, wheat, straw and light sour apple. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, straw, red grapes and light earthiness with a crisp dry lingering red grape finish.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a short duration, fizzy, pink purple head, over a clear reddish purple (SRM 17) body....nose is grape juice (not wine), hints of cereal......taste is grape juice (not wine), light hints of malt, finishing medium dry, with hints of bitterness....mouth feel light, carbonation makes for a soda pop quality. This is a failed experiment. The wheat components deliver nothing in the head, body, aroma or flavor in this "beer". The Cabernet Sauvignon grape juice dominates rather than adding subtle nuances to the overall presentation. The net result is similar to the "Malt Beverages" sold by the macro breweries. There is nothing to recommend this except as an alcohol delivery device. I will not do a BJCP type rating on this as it really is a brand new style of its own..

Bottle. Pours grape with pink purple head. Nose and taste of grape juice, wheat malt and hints of banana. Some metallic notes. Light bodied. Not very good.

unclemattie (4163) - Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Blue Moon Impulse 750ml bottle. Pours red wine color, pink fizz. Aroma of fermented grape juice, not vinous at all. Flavors of cabernet, wheat malts. Tastes like a wine with the body of a beer. Thin wine finish, very fruity. The very best out of the Blue Moon Wine-beers. (3565).

Naka (705) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Pours reddish pink with a pink foamy head.aroma is papery bitter grape. Flavor is very artificial and has some weird spice notes. It finishes sort of dry,but I have no clue what is going on with this. IIt’s artificially sweet, and muddled.

Worse than the Proximity. Flat out terrible. There is nothing redeeming about a beer that tastes worse than bad wine. Awful.
