Pours a two-fingered white head leaving little lace, reddish/amber color. Medium carbonation, light bodied. Slight raspberry nose. Starts with raspberry overtones with the wheat right behind it, very easy to drink. $1.49 for a 12 oz bottle from Liquor Barn, London, KY.

Not a horrible beer, but not a Lambic by far. A drinkable summer beer with not a lot to say for itself.

Cherry color with no head. Raspberry aroma and flavor. Also, a bit sour in the flavor. Flat on the palate.

No. Too sweet... and artificially sweet. Not a good raspbeery taste at all. Didnít have much of a body and just a generally unimpressive beer. Now excuse me while I kiss the sky.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Medium brown, thin head - slight aroma of berries. Sourish and light bodied, with an unpleasant bitterness. Disappointing.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Slightly cloudy light brown in color with a slightly retained egg white head. Aroms is pretty macro swillish. Hay and not much in the way of raspberries. Flavor is an improvement upon the aroma. Mild, sweet raspberry flavor with some wheat. The finish, however is rather like cardboard.

DYCSoccer17 (3513) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Sampled at Empire Brewfest. This has a pretty straight forward big raspberry aroma that is annoying. Probably the weirdest colored beer Iíve seen. This thing is like a hazy pink/peach color with a small white head. Fake raspberry flavors throughout with a touch of mild maltiness shining through. Quite cloying.

CapFlu (4910) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2004
(Draught) Sampled at the Empire State Brewing Festival 2004. Pours a mildy-clouded-lemony colour with a quick-dissipating head. I was surprised by the raspberries - they are both sweet yet not artificial tasting. I wasnít overly impressed overall.

I have had 3 raspberry wheats this week; this is not the worst. Good as a refreshing summer brew, but not a strong wheat underpinning. I would have it again, but Iíd try something new first.

This beer tastes to me like some kidís fruit juice. Am I five again? What is with spiking this kidís innocent Juicy Fruit...o, woe is me, let lamentations be cast forth. But it wasnít *that* bad. It was...palatable. It wasnít disgusting or anything - just kind of unexpected for it to taste more like fruit juice than bread products - it also had a very small head if any at all (had it on tap).
