Pale pink fruit beer with an intense fruity aroma, a light raspberry flavour, very weak and watery, no finish to speak of. Someone buy these guys a plane ticket to Belgium.

Bottle. It poured a hazy reddish gold with virtually no head. The nose was of stale bread and fruit. The taste was sweet with a tart finish.

The most recognizable thing about this beer is how smooth it finishes. It tastes sweet and smells like vanilla, but it drinks so easily that it can be consumed in big gulps to really enjoy all of its flavor at once.

Was much different than my usual stouts but I enjoyed it for sure. I appreciate the raspberries pulp in this wheat bear. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tomer (2905) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle, stable quite dense bubbly head, cloudy deep pink to light red color, enticing aroma of fresh raspberries, same raspberries in the flavor with wood and cardbord. Nice but quite simple.

mzaar (2796) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2015
Fat @ Beer Sellar, Nashville. Dimmigt rödgul med ett medelstort vitt skum. Dofter av viol och örter. Smakinslag av viol, smultron, gräs och örter. Torr munkänsla. Väldigt abrupt och kort avslutning.

ALLOVATE (2895) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2015
Into a snifter chilled. Headless once settled; a hazy peach in colour with intermittent, minute carbonation giving the impression of a still beer. Aroma is strangely more of strawberry conserve than raspberries, with little else coming through. Thin, watery palate with a carbonic acid bite that’s marring. Light raspberry flavour is quite drabby and flows into the swallow. Light wheat, light toothpick linger. Not much here. Bland! (35,5cL, BB 18/11/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)

For a fruit accented beer this is a pretty good one. has a strong scent of raspberries the flavor is less obvious, only minor raspberry undertones, with tastes of other fresh fruit and a bit of sweetness. this is light and sweet, refreshing. finishes quickly. There is very little head but an obvious amount of carbonation.
