Way too sweet for me. It's got the sweetness of raspberries but is missing the tartness of a lambic. Not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (2554) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2015
served in standard pint glass. A - moderately cloudy golden tone with 1/4" white head that quickly settles to a lacy surface coating. S - markedly fruity (raspberry) -- somewhat lambic-like -- and malty/wheaty T - not nearly as sweet as the smell suggests, but substantial taste of raspberries. Clear grain/malt taste, mostly from wheat beer base. Short-lived semi-dry finish. M - light, indeed a bit watery, with good carbonation O - goes down very easy. Very good hot weather session beer. {from 5/7/11 notes)

willisread (388) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2015
Old rating. Pours a hazy orange color with a modest head. Aromas of wheat, citrus banana and raspberry. Fairly light bodied and refreshing. Tastes of wheat and citrus with a nice tart finish. Not bad.

Nice semi-transparent amber color. Rather floral aroma, not much of a hoppy odor. Very grape-ish/fruity flavor. Tart after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is not very good. The flavor is weak, I could barely taste anything. It reminds me of a bud light with an attempt at flavor.

adamnowek (444) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2015
Smells like a pretty ordinary wheat beer with a scent of banana but also a bit of the raspberry. Taste is strong raspberry infused wheat. Other than the raspberry, it's fairly average.

eruizgarcia (238) - - FEB 15, 2015
Otherwise a very run of the mill wheat beer, the raspberries add a subtle and pleasant note. Not bad but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sevenlee (1505) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2015
Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruit, citrus and tart. Taste is kind of fruity and tart. Kind of disappointing.

popephred (261) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Poured from the bottle into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a hazy, amber body with a quickly diminishing head of white foam. The aroma is rife with raspberries and wheat. Carbonation was crisp and the mouthfeel was watery. The palate was dry and bland, with none of the raspberry notes coming through. The aroma gave a great deal of promise (where I almost expected a lambic) but was disappointed by the lack of substance this malt beverage provides. Not horrible, but watery and bland.
