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 Iíve 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.

(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 wasnít 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 Iíd try something new first.

This beer tastes to me like some kidís fruit juice. Am I five again? What is with spiking this kidís innocent Juicy Fruit...o, woe is me, let lamentations be cast forth. But it wasnít *that* bad. It was...palatable. It wasnít disgusting or anything - just kind of unexpected for it to taste more like fruit juice than bread products - it also had a very small head if any at all (had it on tap).

Not my cup of tea. I can see how some people would like this beer because it is much beeter than some of the other fruit beers Iíve tried.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice cloudy golden orange color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma is wheaty and mildly fruity (Raspberry) with a very mild hop presence and a slight spicey note to it.The taste was much the same as the aroma with the flavor of fruit being a bit on the mild side,hops showing at the end with a slight bitterness.Not bad but definately could use a little work to get it into the upper echelon of Fruit beers.

Had it on tap. I like the color, sort of a cloudy purple and pink color. The wheaty rasberry taste is very subtle but fills in nicely. This isnt a real great beer or anything, but I still enjoyed drinking it.

The there was a distinct smell of raspberries. Nice long lasting head. The appearance was a bit cloudy. Not sure if I liked the raspberry flavor. Almost as if someone mixed soda pop in a beer.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle] Pours a hazy peach color with a thick and fluffy white head and good carbonation. Very faint wheaty aroma with a touch of raspberry. Wheaty and grainy taste. Not very fruity, although there was a slight hint of raspberry at the end. Very thin and watery brew.
