5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
I love this beer and I am once again shocked by he overall crtical opinion. A lot of people seem to like heavy beer and bitter beer. Myself I like something refreshing and tasty. While I like astout or a porter as much as anyone I love fruit and Wheat beers. This one the best fruit beers out there, great bottle too. It smells, looks, and tastes great. Not too sweet but enough to really add a great flavor. This is excelent beer and I can tell the fruit used is real (unlike liney) and not fruit flavor.

Pours a two-fingered white head leaving little lace, reddish/amber color. Medium carbonation, light bodied. Slight raspberry nose. Starts with raspberry overtones with the wheat right behind it, very easy to drink. $1.49 for a 12 oz bottle from Liquor Barn, London, KY.

Not a horrible beer, but not a Lambic by far. A drinkable summer beer with not a lot to say for itself.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cherry color with no head. Raspberry aroma and flavor. Also, a bit sour in the flavor. Flat on the palate.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
No. Too sweet... and artificially sweet. Not a good raspbeery taste at all. Didn’t have much of a body and just a generally unimpressive beer.
Now excuse me while I kiss the sky.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium brown, thin head - slight aroma of berries. Sourish and light bodied, with an unpleasant bitterness. Disappointing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly cloudy light brown in color with a slightly retained egg white head. Aroms is pretty macro swillish. Hay and not much in the way of raspberries. Flavor is an improvement upon the aroma. Mild, sweet raspberry flavor with some wheat. The finish, however is rather like cardboard.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled at Empire Brewfest. This has a pretty straight forward big raspberry aroma that is annoying. Probably the weirdest colored beer I’ve seen. This thing is like a hazy pink/peach color with a small white head. Fake raspberry flavors throughout with a touch of mild maltiness shining through. Quite cloying.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Draught) Sampled at the Empire State Brewing Festival 2004. Pours a mildy-clouded-lemony colour with a quick-dissipating head. I was surprised by the raspberries - they are both sweet yet not artificial tasting. I wasn’t overly impressed overall.

I have had 3 raspberry wheats this week; this is not the worst. Good as a refreshing summer brew, but not a strong wheat underpinning. I would have it again, but I’d try something new first.
