This is one of those beers that you hate on for wasting the bit of life you used on actually trying it as it is one of the most god awful beers I have ever had the misfortune of encountering. Taste is of fizzy Kool-aid that was barfed back thru your nasal cavity...no redeeming features whatsoever. Run and hide if you ever even think about trying this.

DocJitsu (909) - Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange golden color with a short white head. Tons of vegetable matter floaters. Raspberry and chili nose. Smooth, full mouthfeel. Taste approximates the nose. A little perfumy at the finish.

vlan1 (191) - Eastern Shore, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2014
On draft. Pours your standard hazy orange reddish Blue Moon type color. Mild aroma the the only distinguishable aroma being mild raspberries. Taste is again mild, with very mild spicy wheat tones and raspberries. Not a bad session beer.

Hkrivera (103) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - JAN 24, 2014
This lager beer comes with raspberry flavor, which makes it perfect for a summer beer. Nice aroma, low alcohol, and wheat malts. Pair it with bar snacks! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The palate is really nice it feels like drinking sparkling water, but the flavour is really lacking.

HIGHB4LL (484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: finger of white head that diminishes quickly, light yellow/pink color, hazy, poor lace, Aroma: raspberry, slight bread, slight butter. Palate: light body, thin and somewhat dry texture, average carbonation, dry finish, abrupt. Taste: very sweet, slightly tart, very similar to raspberries. Overall, very fruity, not balanced and not appealing to the eye. Not for me.

scotchzombie (326) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Pours very hazy berry-brown-orange. Almost like a juice with a purple hue. An aptly named beer. Head is frothy and white and quite loud as it pops to a finger depth. Wet lacing. Aroma is - of course - raspberry. Taste is wet, tart, lemon and raspberry. A bit of funky malt with some bitterness to finish. Smells better than it drinks. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HuskerTan (489) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - DEC 29, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Draft. A- Raspberry, mixed berries, wheat. A- Copper color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Raspberries, mixed berries, wheat, slight sourness, medium sweetness. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet tart finish. O- A little bit of a let down. Wasn’t as balanced as I thought. The raspberries were a little too much.
