Can at Stouts NYC - for the state tick (in writing), 23/11/13. Hazed dark amber with light reddish hues and a thin off white pond/edgework. Nose is raspeberry forward, sugars, caramel, malty, straw. Taste comprises sweet raspeberry syrup, lightly toasted malts, wheat, sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp finish. Refreshing for what it is I guess - BBQ summer beer perhaps but one would be enough - sweet sweet sweet !

Dry and astringent. Light fruit and grainy flavor does nothing to pull this one up. Looks good though.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with white head. Taste rasberry, earthy. I thought it was not very good. I would pass on this down the road. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Yard House Houston. It’s an unclear golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite boring, with a certain fruity, berry-ish domination. Some malty hints. The flavor pretty much the same, fruits and berries dominates, leaving little room for the malts and hops. Medium buddy, a bit heavy on the carbonation. Fruity finish. Definitely not my kind of fruit beer, even though it’s not foul on any way. 131114

Hard to point out any particularly bad or good qualities of this, just seems all around mediocre. Most extravagant thing about it is probably the name.

Poured into a mug. Orange pour. Smell of wheat and raspberry. Taste very similar to smell. Slight spice on the toung very similar to a wit. I really like this beer. A good fruite beer. If you do not like fruite beers you will hate this. If you do this is a great choice.

355ml can from Beer Culture New York. Not really sure what to make of this beer. It certainly is purple.
