2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Barley’s Taphouse in Asheville, NC. Sweet raspberry aroma. Golden pour with frothy white head. Flavor gives away that this is most certainly doped with a chemical raspberry extract. Strange chemical breakdown aftertaste remains on the tongue. I can’t crucify this beer because I just don’t appreciate the style of fruit weizens.

This beer is horrible. It tastes like Michelob Ultra with rasberry syrup added.

OK, more refreshing than Evian. Surprisingly light. I can recognize some wheat, hard to find the berry, but some fruit that at first I thought represented excessive floral hopping. Not much bitterness or lasting impressions of any kind. No head. Yeah, lame is a good word.

12.19.04 12oz bottle. Golden color with light pinkish head that fizzes to nothing. Berry aromas and some vegetal qualities that turn more malty and sweet with temp. Flavors are simple, sweet, grassy, pear, and I guess I can force some berry flavor...but something is rotten. I guess it’s not a bad bottle as I see some other raters have noted an off flavor, too. When I can ignore that, the beer is drinkable, but lame.

I really like a raspberry, but it is clear from this beer that they should not be mixed. The guy that introduced me to this site said this was his favorite beer, not just by Abita, but all-around. What was he thinking?

This beer is way too sweet. For a company that makes a decent ale (Turbodog), this beer is a disappointment. It reminds me of a drink from my mispent youth which consisted of koolaid mixed with grain alcohol. eeew.

On Tap: I don’t know about this beer. It poured a creamy peach color with no head. It tastes like fruit and wheat....just like its supposed to . It left me with no noticable aftertaste and left me not wanting another one.

A hard one to get used to. I’ve had this a few times now, always only get it at the Mellow Mushroom. Flowery aroma, light brandy color. Cloudy and thin head. Bit on the fizzy side, flowery taste, subtle sweetness. Gentle sweet aftertaste.
