I knew better of coures, but couldn’t help myself. Pours a hazy off gold with a dirtyish purple tinge. Seriously - aroma of dishwater and diarrhea. It took some courage to taste but it turns out it wasn’t too scary. Actually, if not for the lightest hint of metal and raspberries, this would be utterly flavorless. Of course, neither the metallic notes nor the weak hint of raspberry were especially pleasant. Fizzy. Down the drain it went.

What the hell, this one has nothing to offer the drinker. If I was trying to get my womean drunk on beer this is the one I would treat her too. No alcohol taste, now smell, no taste at all but water with a spritz of Raspberry.

Simply horrible. What happened here. This beer is just so fruity that it is impossible to taste wheat,malt, hops, or even water.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2005 Of all the fruity winter beers that actually have a true fruit taste and not just a hint of fruit, this one is the most quaffable. Not bad.

A nice compliment to their profile but certainly not the best beer they brew, if indeed you could call it a beer.

On tap at Barley’s Taphouse in Asheville, NC. Sweet raspberry aroma. Golden pour with frothy white head. Flavor gives away that this is most certainly doped with a chemical raspberry extract. Strange chemical breakdown aftertaste remains on the tongue. I can’t crucify this beer because I just don’t appreciate the style of fruit weizens.

This beer is horrible. It tastes like Michelob Ultra with rasberry syrup added.

OK, more refreshing than Evian. Surprisingly light. I can recognize some wheat, hard to find the berry, but some fruit that at first I thought represented excessive floral hopping. Not much bitterness or lasting impressions of any kind. No head. Yeah, lame is a good word.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12.19.04 12oz bottle. Golden color with light pinkish head that fizzes to nothing. Berry aromas and some vegetal qualities that turn more malty and sweet with temp. Flavors are simple, sweet, grassy, pear, and I guess I can force some berry flavor...but something is rotten. I guess it’s not a bad bottle as I see some other raters have noted an off flavor, too. When I can ignore that, the beer is drinkable, but lame.
