draft at saucer: very little aroma hints of raspberry. the pour was golden with hints of pink. the taste was sweet raspberry some maltiness slightly tart. overy all not that bad but i am not really into fruit beers.

A nice little wheat beer, with the raspberries and all....but...really wheres the raspberries? I love raspberries and I just didn’t really find them in this beer...I don’t want an overwhelming artifical raspberry taste, but at least something palpable

Enjoyable wheat beer with a smooth, pleasant taste. The fruit taste isn’t overdone, and the beer is very pretty when poured.

Man, this stuff is pretty freakin’ awful. It smells and tastes like grape soda or something similary to it. Definitely doesn’t taste like a good beer. Stay the heck away from this stuff.

Well , being originally from New Orleans I tend to want to defend this beer, b/c i’ve been to their brewery and know people that have worked there, but alas, I agree with the folks in this list... It is a bit of a let down b/c: Yes, it is a little flat. Yes, the berry flavor is too subtle (would rather be drinking a fruit soda pop), Yes, the label is better than the taste. Yes, the finsih has alot to be desired. In conclusion: Get Turbo Dog, for one last try for a decent Abita Brewery Beer. Maybe if everyone sends them our comments, they’ll work on the recipe and improve it... LOL

Nothing great about this beer. in fact it is kind of bad. I’d rather have a raspberry pop or a regular bee but not this. My sister’s bottle had a cap that wasn’t put on fully

Not as horrible as the recent entries suggest, but not a great beer by any means. Raspberries are not really evident and the color was a little lighter than I was expecting. A little astringent. Cool label and name, but Jimmy deserves better. Scuse me while I kiss the sky...

On tap. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small head. Nothing too special - aroma and tastes of raspberries and wheat. Light and bland tasting. I’ll pass on this in the future.

Bottle. Gold body with no head. Tastes like straw. This tastes like an American Wheat with just a hint of berry. The finish is dirty and gross.

Fruity, sweet, fruity. Not a subtle ok fruitieness, but a strong chick drink fruitiness. Not a fan.
