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. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2014

Appearance: Crystal clear golden body showing off lots of carbonation. The short white head quickly dissipates, very thin and frail texture.
Aroma: The aroma is sweet of apple juice and honeysuckle with a hint of sweet tangerine.
Taste: The flavor leans sweet with honey undertones with apple and orange throughout. Very fruity.
Palate: Full-bodied yet spritzy.
Overall: This is past the best before date but it drinks very nicely. This is a great beer to share with wine drinkers, it merges the styles very nicely.
It doesn’t really work. The wheat ale is good enough. But it tastes like Welch’s was dumped in. Surprisingly. Mild for the ABV too. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2012
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. madmitch76 (24806) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013

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.
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. Ratman197 (14830) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2013
750 ml bottle poured aclear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of straw, citrus and light floral notes. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, straw, citrus, light floral notes and a hint of spice with a crisp dry finish. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 20, 2014
THOUGHTS: Fairly wine-like. Nearly smack dab in between a white wine and a Belgian white beer. Hid alcohol fairly well for something so light in body and high in ABV.
TECHNICAL: Drank 3/3/2013. Bottle. Poured a sparking clear, light yellow(?) with beautiful carbonation and an average, white head that mostly diminished and left barely fair lacing. The aroma contained light grain and wheat; light to moderate doughy yeast; grape; apple; white wine; and honey. The initial flavor was moderately acidic and slightly sweet; while the finish was moderately acidic, lightly sweet and slightly bitter with a short duration. There was wheat, white wine, doughy and dusty yeast, grapes, a little apple and grain. The light to medium body was quite dry with very fizzy carbonation and a dry and lightly alcoholic finish.

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. 60minuteman (1714) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2014
A sort of wine, cider, beer hybrid. Heavy on grapes and orange peel, malt, wheat, coriander. Aroma of yeast, malt, apples, grapes- more beer than anything. Thin and dry finish. This is pretty good.
