yick. i liked the label, so i bought a bottle, and it was awful. so very thin, and no raspberry at all. it tasted like one of those terrible malternative beverages like zima with a quarter of a jolly rancher thrown in. blech.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2004 I really like this label. Fruity as expected, not much else stands out. If I was getting a fruit beer, there are many better, but the label does look cool. Other than that its pretty damn boring.

Yeasty/raspberry aroma, not a bad flavor, but very weak flavored. Not much to write home about.

Where there raspberries in here? I wasn't sure what style this was supposed to be, and I'm still not. Better than a Macro, but not much else.

Where's the raspberry taste. I didn't pick up much raspberry. Alittle fruity taste but that's it. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2003 I had really high hopes, and was sorely disappointed. The raspberries are kind of an afterthought, a little sour and bitter, comes off like a blond ale, but something was lost in my batch I think.

Very cloudy and huge head. The raspberry is very pronounced, but not overbearing. It was a unique taste that really was better than I expected. I think the major problem I saw was that the beer is actually a bit skunky and bitter. The fruit flavor takes that edge off, however, and really is a decent break from the norm.

Wheat beer yes, rasberries NO. Pours in with a nice white head. Might be a good wheat beer but without rasberry flavor.

Weak unpronounced flavors. My batch was skunky.

A nice light beer for a summer day. Reddish color, minimal head. Good balance as it is a light beer with no off tastes and a raspberry finish. Wheat beer, fruit beer and lite beer lovers should enjoy.
