Clear bright gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth, turning a little dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Smooth malt and a nicely judged amount of grape. Not cloying and not acid. Minerally finish with lager like pale malt character. Light and refreshing.

bhensonb (10979) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 15, 2012
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.

Tmoney99 (10595) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fairing. Moderate wheat and grape aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium grape flavor with a medium sweet grape finish of moderate duration. This is a soft beer.

daknole (9058) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 16, 2012
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.

adnielsen (9032) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a clear, light yellow appearance with a small, dissipating white head. Dry apple, pear, white grape, somewhat spicy, fluffy white birthday cake aroma. Sweet white grape, pear, apple, somewhat juicy, sweet wheat flavor that dries out a bit on the finish. Kind of interesting idea but didn’t turn out all that great.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle at BTBF. So happy I didn’t have to pay for a whole bottle to tick. Pours with a clear yellow hued body with a white head. Aromas are grapey (generic), bland malt, chlorine. Flavors are dry and a bit champagne like, medium sulfur, fruity, low ester. Dry with moderate carbonation.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s with X-mas dinner. Poured hazy straw with minimal off-white head. Nose was wheaty malt, mild hopcitrus, vinous fruit. Tasted like a mix of low end white wine and Coors Light. Not much in the flavor or nose, and overall a big disappointment.

shrubber85 (7571) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle. White grape and green apple aroma - like a cheap white wine. Medium yellow with slight head. Mildly sweet white grape juice/wine and light malt flavor. Light but pleasant.
