2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
750ml bottle tasted blind. Artificial red-wine color. Thin, foamy off-white head. Sugary chemical blueberry syrup. Tastes like a cheap wine mixed with a beer, or maybe a mead. Red cola flavor. unimpressive, one I’ll avoid. Disturbing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a velvety magenta with a nose of cab, light cherry juice, grassy strawberry, and a touch of toasted vanilla. Flavor is an upfront rush of cab quickly tempered by a harvested bread and grass smorgasboard. Finishes clean and cabby. Average mouthfeel. Not bad; very interesting.

From bottle. Light cabernet sauvignon nose with a little wheat sweetness. Deep pink/rose clear with thin pink head. Medium body with medium-light carbonation. Sweet grape juice with wine tang. Predominant red wine flavor with mild wheat sweetness and light tannic bitter after.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample 2/13 (Binny’s Downers Grove)--Pours ruby with no head. Aroma of wine. Taste of wine. Interesting concept but something I am surprised made it to market.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
