Fruity, sweet, fruity. Not a subtle ok fruitieness, but a strong chick drink fruitiness. Not a fan.

Out of the bottle. Taste similar to Robitussin; perhaps the CF variety. In fact I think used Robitussin to get the flavor out of my mouth. Waiting to taste it on draft. Apparently this is better.

I felt betrayed when I tried this beer. Abita, although not a risk taker, usually produces solid malt beverages. This was so overwhemingly fruited up, I could not finish the bottle.

-Aroma: Very sweet with a punch full of rasberries -Appearance: Very attractive, slightly purple (more like a light red) color -Flavor: Very refreshing with a strong fruity taste and a nice hoppy finish -Palate: Sit a lit harsh on the palate at first due to the high carbonation, but mellows quickly -Overall: Great, fun, refreshing brew

The commercial description sums it up for me. Surprisingly crisp and refreshing for a fruity beer. I love it with pizza.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Sampled at Stoudts Brewfest. Almost gold color with fair sized head. Aroma is light and sweet banana with faint pepper. Not as much rasberry as I was expecting and that was a good sign. The taste is a bit tart of sour rasberries and light straw. Not disguisting but I wouldn’t want 12 oz of this either.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2004
Looks like cloudy strawberry lemonade with a white head. Strong rasberry aroma with some malt. Flavor is crisp but uninteresting. Thin watered down rasberries and wheat. Very tart. Not much else. Not unpleasant but not pleasant either.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Pours a foamy white head on hazy peach colored body. Strange malty and brewing mashy aroma with some sweet fruity tones. Artificial fruity and malty flavor. Not a lot of flavor and quite uninteresting.

Bottle. Pours a orange yellow, slight red hues slightly hazy. Moderate thin head. Aroma is raspberry and wheat beer and fairly pleasant. Taste fails in my opinion. raspberry flavor is very slight. Malt is thin leading to a watery mouthfeel. I will pass on this beer.
