Some beers you don’t remember, some beers will be forever seared into your brain. This beer is the latter. Way too sweet aroma and taste mark this beer. Very obvious Raspberry hints. Red-brown color with a small white foam disappearing quickly. Too thin texture as well. Memorable, but for all the wrong reasons.

LLooks like aa typical wheat beer, smells like raspberries, and taste like fruity water. This shouldn’t be classified as a beer at all, it’s just as bad as Zima

Looks like a typical wheat actually. Cloudy golden. Raspberries are a favorite of mine so I liked this beer’s aroma of rasberry with just a hint of spice. This beer is a little thin on flavor, but fortunately sweetness is held to a minimum. It’s odd to drink a wheat beer and taste raspberry instead of banana and citrus, but the raspberries are pretty subtle. Not bad for something different once in a while.

A friend of mine loves this stuff. I tried it and it was actually drinkable, although I wouldn’t have it again unless I had to save my self from coormillweiser.

This was great. not only did i taste full on raspberry, but every gulp had WHEAT in it...which is unheard of for a WHEAT beer. Take a clue michelob. This sucker has a thick yeasty aroma and a mellow crisp body and taste. Really extraordinary from the other wheats i’ve had (yea both of em).

Tastes like rasberry flavored soda water. Skip it.

I had a pint of this off a tap just to try it. And it wasn’t nearly as nasty as these other people make it out to be. I’m not a huge fruit beer fan. but i can enjoy a pint or two from time to time. This was smooth with a nice raspberrie tone that wasn’t overpowering. went down very easy. I wouldn’t buy a sxier or anything but i’d buy another pint if i was in th mood

Oye vay!! I wanted to give this beer the benefit of the doubt (I don’t generally go for these flavored concotions) but let me tell ya. Steer clear my comrades. This is really a bad effort. Weak body and a very unoriginal raspberry...I dunno, thing going on with it that is rather revolting. There is a purple sort of haze to it but it’s not that cute after you’ve had a couple of sips and are pissed with yourself at having forked over a buck ninety nine for this crap. Don’t even try it to rate it. Trust me.
