Bottle into glass. Everything about this beer is bland to me. The aroma is slightly berries and yeast, but it’s barely noticeable. I really can’t imagine drinking more of this.

Fruit aroma -- citrus, tart orange. Cloudy dark orange pour with white foam. Berry notes come through in the taste, with elements of citrus behind. The finish is hoppy and slightly bitter. A little disappointing in the end.

OrthoDoc (150) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Pours an orange color. Aroma of wheat, some blueberry, and a little sweetness. Taste follows the nose with medium sourness which helps give it some added flavor. An odd flavored beer. Someone's buying this stuff though because it's widely available. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bleh. Is this really their trademark beer? Plain w/ some raspberry coming through. Average pour, faint aroma, & ok mouthfeel. Passable on a very hot day I suppose but not recommended!

Tommygun453 (40) - California, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Pours a hazy golden color. Medium foam head. Aroma is of wheat, citrus and raspberry. Taste is malty with wheat and slight hint of raspberry. Not as sweet or interesting as I thought it was gonna be, I might drink it again.

jsporrer (583) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a huge head of white foam. Nice tart, tangy, sour aroma. Taste is watery and thin. Smells much better than it tastes.

tfontana (619) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Aroma is light biscuit malts, hint of fruit? Appearance is cloudy light orange with light green/yellow at tops and bottom, light reddish/purple hue, trace sparkle, small bits of berry in there as advertised, no head but thin white ring and trace lacing. Taste is mix of sweet and tart berry over pilsner malt base, not entirely harmoniously. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture and soft to average carbonation, dry slightly bitter finish. Overall, as advertised--a subtle coloration, fruity aroma and tartly sweet taste. This is pretty weak all around.
