If you're going to be bold enough to honor a legendary song by naming a brew after it, make damn sure you've got something worthy. What we have here is a disapointing, watery waste of time.

Smells and tastes like blackcherry soda. Hazy gold color with a light disappating head. Some barley malt up front in the taste, turning to a sweet flavor - like Capt'n Crunch. Just ood. OK maybe there are raspberries in there, but this isn't good overall.

Raspberry sweet nose. Cloudy pale orange, no head, no carbonation. Flat sweet raspberry taste. Makes probably a nice summerdrink as it is kind of refreshing.

11/15/03: on tap at Betty’s.
cloudy peach body with no head and no lace. not much aroma (possibly a hint of wheat). strong wheat bite, in a weird-way. acidic with hints of lemon. unusual mouth-feel.

Nice enough compared to mass market, but really a disappointment. Distinct rasperry in the nose, but also a staleness (cardboard?). Pours with no head and no lace. Faint raspberry taste, mostly i'm getting unmalted wheat - or is it just stale? I know americans are no good at brewing wheat beers, but at least give me some fruit.

Better than I expected. A tasty wheat beer with a hint of berry. First one wasn't too shabby. It gets a little sickening after the second.

tastes like an ok wheat beer with raspberry flavoring added. I don't get it, why make a below average gimmick beer out of what probably would have been a drinkable wheat beer? give it as a gag gift.

crazyvin (1858) - New York, USA - OCT 20, 2003
very little i can say about this beer. It poured a hazy yellow color with no head. Had a small hint of raspberries on the nose. Other then that it was another mild wheat beer. It had little character in both malt aspects and hop aspects.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 American wheat with a little spicy noble hop and a little raspberry tossed in to add a bit of interest. Doesn’t work.
