COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden-pink beer combines our light, refreshing wheat ale with all-natural raspberry extract, added before carbonation to produce a subtle raspberry aroma and flavor. Bronze Medal Winner at the 1995 Great American Beer Festival.

On draft at the brewpub. Aroma: All raspberry, all the time. Apperance: Hazy straw yellow with a thin head. Maybe a pink-ish tint. Flavor: The raspberry does not overpower the beer, which is good. Still tastes a lot like Cowtown Wheat, which is bad. Mouthfeel: Medium body and a touch of carbonation. Overall: Not bad for a fruit beer.

Presents the same color as the regular wheat, like a light hazy straw. This has a moldy berry nose, but the mellow sweetness and nice little bitter bite that follows to counter it makes me give it a good rate.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Head is small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of raspberry. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Just another light and simple fruit beer.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 6, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Smells like bath & Bodyworks hand sanitizer. Not too-lollipop like, but close. Not annoying in that it has no strange chemical flavor, but that smell!?! Heavy fruit scent, but taste is not to match.

Nuffield (3658) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2005
I assumed this was the same as the Cow Town by its appearance, which was exactly identical. Light, fruity aroma, with same flavor notes. Lighter palate than the Cow Tow, with the sugar taking some of the sting off of the carbonation. Weak fruit beer concoction. (on tap at Lawrence, KS location)

csbosox (1217) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Hazy golden color. Light raspberry aroma. The flavor is light with a raspberry finish. This is the product of adding raspberry to a nearly flavorless beer. It actually has a nose and a flavor, though it is a raspberry flavor, not a beer flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2005 It is a very light tasting beer, but the fruit flavor tastes real, and it still tastes, however minimaly, like beer. A nice little brewery attempt at a difficult genre of beer. The pink color is a little wierd at first.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 5, 2004
I don’t get why this beer is so popular. It tastes like a mix of a non-alcoholic beer and cough syrup. This beer is perfect for someone who doesn’t really like beer.

Clear gold, just slightly hazy. Orange peel and sugar aroma, some mild raspberry flavors, but aritficial. Drinkable but nothing great.

It's hard to look manly ordering anything with the word raspberry in it, but I don't let that stop me. One of the best fruit beers I have tried. The raspberry is highly evident. Nice and tasty. Curiously high amount of carbonation. I really enjoyed this.
