tastes like an ok wheat beer with raspberry flavoring added. I don't get it, why make a below average gimmick beer out of what probably would have been a drinkable wheat beer? give it as a gag gift.

very little i can say about this beer. It poured a hazy yellow color with no head. Had a small hint of raspberries on the nose. Other then that it was another mild wheat beer. It had little character in both malt aspects and hop aspects.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 American wheat with a little spicy noble hop and a little raspberry tossed in to add a bit of interest. Doesn’t work.

Little to no head. Sweet and atificial. Fizzy and lightly sour. Made me think of kool aid

Hazy dark honey color. Light off pink head that goes away quickly. Actually does have a light pale malt aroma. Raspberry syrup flavor, much like adding a small amout of grenadine to an american standard. Another koolaid brew.

Better than I expected it to be. A nice alternative if you don't want to drink a regular beer or a Mike's.

I don't like wheat beers, so the raspberries (which dominate -- it's like drinking slightly alcoholic kool-aid) hid the bananas and grain very well.

Pours an interesting pale pink/beige with melon highlights. The average white frothy head is mostly diminishing with fair lacing. The refreshing nose is raspberries and grapes and wheat (which always smells like sawdust to me). The flavor is typical wheat with a nice balance and an afterthought of raspberry. Bolder than I would have anticipated by judging the hue of the brew. The medium body is dry and lively. The finish feels chalky.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Hazy yellow-gold, grapefruit juice color with lots of fruity, yeasty aromas. Dry,crisp and very fizzy. Tart raspberry flavor is complemented with an underlying wheat flavor. Reminded me of a carbonated soda, but much better. Great in hot weather, will definitely have again.

By the aroma i didn't know if I was drinking beer or eating pie. The fruit did not over power the taste of the beer. Unfortuantly the beer lacked ANY real good flavors.
