3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Has a musty smell with no scent of raspberries.
Appearance: Cloudy orange in color, with a nice head and lotsa lacing.
Flavor: Slight blueberry taste, not overbearing, yet not real dominant either.
Palate: Not as carbonated as I prefer. Mouthfeel was adequate at best.
Overall:Good summer beer, however it could have used more blueberry flavor.

Bottle. A golden pink color with a white head lots of rising bubbles. A touch of raspberry in the musty aroma. A bit of zest on the palate with a sweetness at the finish, but it neither stands out as a fruit beer or an American wheat.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2005 Rerate Had on tap this time around at a Beniganís in Baton Rouge. Funky, toe-jam like aroma, thinnish mouthfeel, berry flavor not quite as pronounced or natural. Passable as an accompaniment to a meal, but that is about it. Original Fresh fruity aroma - whiff of rasberries. Orangeish cloudy appearance with a trace of sediment. Quickly dissipating head with no lacing. Lot of carbonation wakes up your taste buds. Flavor - smooth wheat flavor with slight raspberry undertones. Impressed.

I surprised myself by really liking this one. The raspberry flavoring is vivid and crisp. Carbonation a bit high. Not much of a head at all.

Tastes like purple--what do you expect. Still enjoy it for what it is, a novelty.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2004 Its kind of a novelty beer. I guess if you drink enough you'll get "Purple Haze all through your brain" Sorry that was chessy. Very little of that raspberry taste, more wheat tasting than anything. I dont really like fruit beers but this is ok, you might get a wine cooler chick to get interested in beer. Overall decent and nothing I will seek out.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden-yellow hue. Sticky small white head. Nose of light rapberry, sweetness in the backdrop, dry palate, acidic finish...Nothing spectacular by any means.

A nice smell, especially if you spend a bunch of the time in kitchen with some odd ingredients. A great colour which shows its differences compared to normal beers. The aroma of some Lavender flowers or even Violet emerges, even though the label only mentions an infusion of Raspberry flavours. Not a bad beer!

This beer smells bad and tastes bad. It really tastes like a skunky beer, but it smells and tastes like that when it's fresh.
