Light, slightly sweet hoppy nose. Dry wheat flavor with a short burst of sweetness followed with a dry finish

Was disappointed in this one. Raspberry nonexistant. Definitely a decent wheat. Was expecting more Raspberry. Leinenkugel Berry Weiss is still the best in this reviewers opinion if Fruit Beer appeals to you.

Very fizzy. The overall taste was decent. The raspberry was very evident but not sickening sweet. Wouldn't try it again though, especially since my wife didn't like it.

This after Lindeman's Framboise lambic...really highlighted this beer's shortfallings. Thought this was too sweet.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2004 On tap. Poured a cloudy golden color with pretty much no head. I expected the worst with this one, as I hate most fruit beers; however, this was somewhat of a pleasant surprise. The beer is light and easy to drink, and the raspberry flavor is understated and not by any means artificial. Don't think I'd drink it if it wasn't on sale (like it was tonight), but this wasn't as bad as other fruit beers I've had (cough) Pete's Strawberry Blonde (cough cough).

Definately a fruited beer that was manufactured incorrectly. The aroma radiating from the glass was like raspberries fertilized with plutonium, too much too much! Taste was not much better. Do not recommend this beer.

Had a very strong raspberry aroma and palate. Otherwise plain beer besides the raspberry, which def isnt't my favorite berry. A thin head and pale appearance.

Strange cloudy appearance hides a smooth fruity taste accented with a pleasant nutty aroma

A very average fruit beer from Abita. Flavor is made up mostly of a sweet raspberry flavor with some malts and light bitterness. The aroma made it smell like a cheap beer though (smelled like musty adjuncts to me). Like it better than Pete's Wicked Winter brew, which was another raspberry beer.

Looks can be decieving. It pours with a slightly cloudy, almost purple hinted color. Aromas of raspberries are there. The flovor is nice and crisp. Not too sweet...
