From tap at Yard House in San Diego. Pours hazy deep orange with a small white head. Aroma is crisp orange and tangerine fruity. Mild citric base flavour, rather dry yet refreshing with a bitterness making the finish even more dry and crisp.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) A raspberry-wheat beer from Louisiana! Oh yes, it had to come. Has the typical wheaty haze with some sediment. Orangey with a slight reddish tint and a good head. Quite dry and only a hint of sweetness from the fruit. Actualy quite refreshing.

Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy pale amber, average head. Tart raspberry aroma. Dryish, light and clean. Though simple it’s drinkable and refreshing. No bitterness. A well made beer in a pointless style.

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
