A cloudy ruby red grapefruit color. A simple beer with a slighly fruity taste. The raspberry is not very evident, but the color clealry shows the additive. This is a very refreshing beer to drink. Very little body or complexity. perfect on a hot summer evening. Similar to a grapefruit carbonated soda. Not exactly what your looking for when you drink one of these, but if you understand what your getting it isn't too bad.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2003 One of the better fruity beers, in my opinion. Nice hint of raspberry and wheat in the flavor. Nice looking beer in the glass, hazy. Highly drinkable. Not quite as good as Abita's amber.

Cloudy amber color. Hazy is definitely a good word. Some wheat and fruit in the flavor. Not too bad. Very popular in Knoxville, TN.

Many company's try to do too much with a beer. This beer on the other hand is very well put together. It has a nice wheatiness, with just a bit of fruit to soften the overall flavor. The beer itself is very hazy and had a fizzy head that rapidly dissapeared. I like.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very light, hazy, straw-colored brew. Quickly dissipating, fizzy white head.
The nose is of yeast, raspberries, banana and apricot. Lightly floral and interesting.
Lightly malty flavor. Tangy with plenty of fresh raspberries and traces of fuzzy fruit. Well-balanced and fairly thin with a touch of honey.
Light-bodied with a fizzy, dry mouthfeel.
Very refreshing late Summer beer.

Draught consumed at the House of Blues in New Orleans. Pink/purple tone gives this beer an infected look. Aroma of raspberries, malt, and yeast. Raspberry flavor is subtle but not very natural tasting. Not overly sweet. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy. I confess that I actually found this beer to be drinkable and refreshing – but just once.

More proof that a good fruit beer is hard to come by. Fakey raspberry smell and flavors. Not overpowering raspberry just not very good.

lightly carbonated, short lived frothy head. fruity aroma with a hint of grain. flavor is a bit fruity and light with what i think is a corn aftertaste. mostly flavorless...nothing really offensive, just flavorless.

The most amazing thing about this is that they didn't overdo it with the fruit. It's basically just an American Wheat with some very subtle raspberry. Not a very good beer.
