3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a glassy cheddar orange with a nose of straight-up white wine. Flavor is a quick blanc followed by a light, bready hops note that slowly fades back into the blanc. I’m no white wine fan (usually) but I like this one more than the Impulse. Lightly oily mouthfeel. I’d drink this again.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Kinda like bad champagne almost. Very bubbly, stale beer, white wine. Interesting try...better than the other in this series (impulse), but not good.

From bottle. Very small head retention. Slight fruity aroma. Not a big alcohol taste. Nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Tan brown color. Small head. Looks like apple juice. Smells and tastes mildly sweet without overdoing it. Not great, but I like the effort from the macros lately

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Both of the beers in this series suck ass. This one tastes like some blue moon mixed with some old and tainted welches white grape juice. I will say that this one was better than Impulse. But barely. Waste of money.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Muckey’s. Poured into a wine glass. Deep clear golden color with white froth head that falls to a thin lace. Low carbonation. Flavor is about what I expected - beer and white wine. Alcohol is well masked. Drinks much more like a white wine than a beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from the Vacaville BevMo. Pours fizzy light gold with a creamy/fizzy white head. Aroma is vinous/grapey/bready. Med body more or less. Flavor rotates grape/bread/sauvignon blanc, the goes a bit acidic, more wine, then fruity/wheaty. Then it starts all over again. Finishes dry, mildly acidic, and arguably a little bitter. Clean ending. Very nice.

Are you kidding me with this? This tastes like pong beer and grape juice. Smells like old beer after you win in pong for awhile. Try again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours an extremely clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very wine like. I get a lot of the sauvignon blanc notes. The flavor is more of the same. The wheat and biscuit malt come through up front, but then there is a lot of white wine character. I get a little bit of acid, likely from the grapes. There is also a little bit of toastiness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
14 karat pour with ample carbonation percolating up from the bottom of the glass, producing a lively ivory head that diminished to a ring quickly. Nose of grape, white wine, yeast, lemon, and freshly-cracked pepper. A bit tart, loads of citrus, lemon zest, grapefruit pith, bit of spice, and again very wine-like. Unique. Actually enjoyed it.
