Light and lame and about the only thing really going for the game is the name. Please, more substance.

Appearance is cloudy golden, with a very nice head. Aroma is NICE- thick raspberries. Tastes very wheaty- with only a hint of fruit... nothing all that special. The smell is the best part- and that’s quite nice.

I was very disapointed with this beer. I love fruit beers, but this sucked. Tastes like a bad wheat beer with not enough raspberry flavour. Thin mouthfeel and generally weak all around.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2004
(bottle) hazy gold with quickly fading head. Fairly strong rasberry aroma. Wheet beer malt/yeast flavors with distinct rasberry flavor. Light bodied. Not my cup of tea, but worth trying.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2004
Cloudy gold body with a slightly pinkish head. A little berry aroma, not much else. Strong rasberry flavors but absolutely no body. Really nothing good about this beer aside from it being free.

Hangover (1064) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2004
Pours a slightly cloudy orange, with a very short lived head. Sweet, berryish, hoppy aroma. Taste is wheat, yeast, somewhat fizzy citrus tang towards the end. Short, crisp finish. Hard to rate. A fruit/wheat beer. As a wheat beer, it's slightly above average. As a fruit beer, it's pretty good (I usually don't like them). Taken together, I would have to say this is pretty decent. I may even get it again. A nice change of pace from the bananna beers :)

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2004
Quite little name, nice little gimmick, but, hey, how's the beer? Appearance: a hazy pale orange color, with an initially fluffy white head, that's quick to crumble away. Aroma: sweet and fruity, definitely berryish, the pure stamp of raspberries, comingled with the wheaty, yeast, citric nature of a hefe weizen. But, as a hefe weizen, it falls severely short. As an American HW, flavored with fruit, not terrible. Decent texture, light body, extraordinarily drinkable, tasty, smooth, but all in all uneventful. That does the trick sometimes though, and I'm sure this would be quite a hit with the ladies at the beach.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2004
Hazy light green & ping. Lots of carbonation and a little peach aroma along with pilsner malts. Flavor is very fruity & tart with some hops and a grainy malt finish. Unique at best, more like a fruit beer.

Pours light yellow. Slight smell of berries. Tastes of slight berries, yeast, and citrus.
