2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(US backlog SEP2012 - NOLA) 12oz bottle, luckily available as refrigerated single... Girly-sweet cranberry (ironically more so than raspberry) juice of a beer mix, thin and light-saccharine, extract-laden, Shock-Top-like interpretation of fruit wheat ale as neither ale nor fruit: a composition of artificial compromises. Still drinkable, instantly forgettable thirst quencher, then soon after thirst-creator under the beating NOLA sun.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in a random Cajun/Creole restaurant in Houston. It pours reddish amber with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet raspberry, wheat, earth and hint of spice perhaps....but not a whole lot. The taste is sweet, raspberry, doughy, caramel, wheat, banana?, light bitterness and a touch of toast with a short, dryish finish. Light to medium body and average carbonation. Pretty one-dimensional. Straight forward sweet fruit beer. A bit artificial feeling.Not for the likes of me....

Can. I could see how this could be refreshing to some, but I found it quite sweet, didn’t really taste like "fresh raspberries", more like a can of wheat soda with raspberry syrup sprayed in.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had a Hugo's in Fayetteville. Pours a pinkish color with a soda pop head. Flavor and aroma are slight raspberries. Drinkable beer. But not a good beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes: pours a light ruby red color with white fizzy head. Light raspberry on the nose with some wheat, and cereal notes; follows onto the palate. The raspberry isn’t as pronounced as I would like it to be, but not bad overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pour. Pours a light reddish blonde with a raspberry aroma. Very light bodied beer with strawberry and raspberry flavors. Light wheat on the finish with more light fruit. Not a whole lot special going on with this one. It wasn’t bad.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Slaters 50/50. Pours a hazy orange with very little head. Poor feathering. Aromas of vanilla and orange. Strange taste of orange candy and milk. I'd classify this as a "cheerleader beer". Blah.
