Someone once told me that
this beer was brewed with
grapefruit juice and went 13% ABV.
No! Back to reality:

Pinkish tint to the color, very little head, lots of rasberry in the aroma, fairly light in body, rasberry flavors werenít too over-powering, decent seasonal wheat beer

This beer was an almost pinkish orange color with a small white head that didnít hold and left little lace. It had a light aroma of grain and raspberry. The flavor was lightly of raspberry and a bit tart. The finish was light with a bit of the tartness. A fairly weak beer for this style, but okay for a summer session brew I suppose.

OK, this is no Lindemanís Cassis, but itís not $5.95 a bottle, either. You get what you pay for, dude. All in all, this beer isnít all that sweet, and raspberries are only moderately evident in the taste. Middle-of-the pack fruit beer. Marin Brewing, Spanish Peaks, Sam Adams and even Florisgaarden have better fruit brews than this.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2003 An excellent wheat beer with a hint of raspberries. Just based on beliefs, a beer that is flavored with fruit is not as good as a great regular beer, but this comes awfully close. I enjoy this every time I have it.

Seriously, Iím rating this beer this higly because it is just that good. It is my favorite beer and I think you should give it a shot. Itís a wheat beer (Golden to be exact), so donít expect a very robust taste. It has an added rasberry flavor to it, which I found a bit unnerving before I tried it but very appealing after my first sip. One problem, however, is the inconsistancy with the brew. Sometimes it has a lighter rasberry flavor, and sometimes it has a much more present rasberry flavor. If you donít like it the first time you try it, try it again a month or so later and you might have a brew from a different batch. The batches from the kegs tend to have a much more present rasberry taste and a smoother feel to it.
But to put it succinctly, Iíll order this beer anytime I see it in a bar.

I tend to enjoy fruit beers, and although this one is definitely on the "annoying" side of the spectrum, itís worth a look. Light-ish color and sugar sweet, I didnít pick "raspberry" out when I didnít know it was a raspberry beer. A bit too fizzy. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)
