Had it on tap. I like the color, sort of a cloudy purple and pink color. The wheaty rasberry taste is very subtle but fills in nicely. This isnt a real great beer or anything, but I still enjoyed drinking it.

Semi-hazy orange color with small white head. Aroma is all raspberries. Flavor has raspberry up front and then a wheat taste with a slightly yeasty bitter finish.

The there was a distinct smell of raspberries. Nice long lasting head. The appearance was a bit cloudy. Not sure if I liked the raspberry flavor. Almost as if someone mixed soda pop in a beer.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle] Pours a hazy peach color with a thick and fluffy white head and good carbonation. Very faint wheaty aroma with a touch of raspberry. Wheaty and grainy taste. Not very fruity, although there was a slight hint of raspberry at the end. Very thin and watery brew.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Had this on tap at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson, MA. Has a hazy light yellow color with moderate carbonation and little head. Smell is a bit wheaty/fruity. Taste is somewhat wheaty with a touch of fruit and has a funny aftertaste. Overall I am not a big fan of american wheats and this one is no different.

Light and lame and about the only thing really going for the game is the name. Please, more substance.

Appearance is cloudy golden, with a very nice head. Aroma is NICE- thick raspberries. Tastes very wheaty- with only a hint of fruit... nothing all that special. The smell is the best part- and that’s quite nice.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - MAY 7, 2004
I was very disapointed with this beer. I love fruit beers, but this sucked. Tastes like a bad wheat beer with not enough raspberry flavour. Thin mouthfeel and generally weak all around.

(bottle) hazy gold with quickly fading head. Fairly strong rasberry aroma. Wheet beer malt/yeast flavors with distinct rasberry flavor. Light bodied. Not my cup of tea, but worth trying.
