Had it at the RFD in Washington, DC. This is pretty bad. Imagine drinking a run of the mill wheat beer while chewing a fat wad of fruit bubblicious. Yep, its disgusting and so is this beer!

Trix are for kids...NOT for beer. This is so nasty. It has a bad lager and Trix cereal nose and taste. Don't go near this one. One of the worst I've tried!

Barely palatteable, acidic, sour and artifical. . . nothing I would ever want to put in my mouth again.

OK...this one looks like grapefruit juice with a white head. Not an attractive brew. Nose is very light wheat...almost non-existant. I'm starting to wonder if my bottle is bad...I can't even catch a HINT of the raspberry...tastes only like a very light wheat beer. Not much at all to this one...

The only thing hazy in this beer was the chance of raspberry flavor. It smells like a bad lager + raspberry. In my mouth it left the taste of bran cereal. Definately a weird one.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 6, 2003
Light hazy amber color; light raspberry character in the nose. Watery, thin, artficial fruity/wheat flavors, refreshing and reasonably tasty but dull and probaly not to be tried again. I didn't find this too sweet.

mribm (457) - Ocala, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2003
Aroma: Has a musty smell with no scent of raspberries.
Appearance: Cloudy orange in color, with a nice head and lotsa lacing.
Flavor: Slight blueberry taste, not overbearing, yet not real dominant either.
Palate: Not as carbonated as I prefer. Mouthfeel was adequate at best.
Overall:Good summer beer, however it could have used more blueberry flavor.

jazz88 (2550) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 14, 2003
Bottle. A golden pink color with a white head lots of rising bubbles. A touch of raspberry in the musty aroma. A bit of zest on the palate with a sweetness at the finish, but it neither stands out as a fruit beer or an American wheat.

Fruit aroma. Light orange and cloudy. Small head. Some wheat flavor but the raspberry was hardly noticeable.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2005 Rerate Had on tap this time around at a Benigan’s in Baton Rouge. Funky, toe-jam like aroma, thinnish mouthfeel, berry flavor not quite as pronounced or natural. Passable as an accompaniment to a meal, but that is about it. Original Fresh fruity aroma - whiff of rasberries. Orangeish cloudy appearance with a trace of sediment. Quickly dissipating head with no lacing. Lot of carbonation wakes up your taste buds. Flavor - smooth wheat flavor with slight raspberry undertones. Impressed.
