Not a very good one, bottle from sf bar, interesting wheat and fruit, but nothing to brag about.

Bottle, part of a ’Build a 6’ from Binny’s. I figured what the hell, give it a try. Pours an apricot color, minimal white head. Nose is suspiciously reminiscent of artificial berries (think Berry Glade air freshener scented) with some cereal notes mingling. Mouth is thin and watery, lotta wheatness and cereal (think cheap lager with Glade subbing for the skunkiness) . The perfect beer for those days when you just can’t make up your mind between Kool-Aid or a barley soda. Disturbingly enough though, I’ve had worse ’berry’ beers.

Orange pour from draft. Raspberry and wheat taste as advertised. To sweet and wheaty for my taste buds but chicks probably love this

12 oz bottle. BB 01/11... From a gas station in New Orleans, LA.
Hazy orange amber colour with a small white head. Pilsner malt and mild grassy bitterness in the aroma. Mild sweetness, raspberries... or some other berries and malt in a pilsnery flavour. Not very good or tasty.

Boring. Everything is boring aboutvthe beer. Taste of raspberries leaves the palate as soon as it gets there.

Easy drinker that pairs beautifully with Cajun or deep fried foods. I found it to have a very subtle taste of berries but it stayed true to it’s wheat balance. A straight porch rocker. Perfect for a spring or summer day.

Nice aroma blwnd of hops, malt, and raspberries. Balance of smell does not mactch aroma at all. Taste is light with some fruit flavor is hardly malty as the bottpe states. Its an ok beer. Not why "purple haze" the color isn’t purple at all, pours a light amber color with thin white head.
