Murky reddish yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma was slight with wheat and fruit. Tasted very mild with small hints of rasberry and grass.

bottle. I think itís pretty OK. light and sweet start with a rather tart but still pleasant finish. Was a nice drink to beat the heat.

This beer is what Charles Barkley would call terrible. Fruit beer really isnít my favorite style so maybe Iím biased. I suppose it ís one of those beers to ease you into craft brewing if youíre used to some of the mass produced stuff out there.

This one has a light weat and raspberry scent. I loved the light flavor of raspberry as well, i just wish it was a bit more pronounced. Over all I quite liked it.

A hard one to get used to. Iíve had this a few times now, always only get it at the Mellow Mushroom. Flowery aroma, light brandy color. Cloudy and thin head. Bit on the fizzy side, flowery taste, subtle sweetness. Gentle sweet aftertaste.

I strained to see the pink that some others have mentioned but will leave it that this poured a fairly golden colour with some mild haze. Aroma-wise, I was a bit put off with the raspberry odour coming from the glass; it smelled too much like berry to me and I question the fresh raspberry approach mentioned in the commercial description. Flavour was underwhelming for a wheat beer.

Iím giving this a slightly higher than average rating, even though I used to really like this beer. It seems that lately itís lost some of itís flavor. It used to have a good wheat flavor, with a small rasberry hint to it. Now, it seems to taste only like seltzer, with a little bit of rasberry. And the bubbles in this are huge, and you can feel them in your mouth.

Seriously, Iím rating this beer this higly because it is just that good. It is my favorite beer and I think you should give it a shot. Itís a wheat beer (Golden to be exact), so donít expect a very robust taste. It has an added rasberry flavor to it, which I found a bit unnerving before I tried it but very appealing after my first sip. One problem, however, is the inconsistancy with the brew. Sometimes it has a lighter rasberry flavor, and sometimes it has a much more present rasberry flavor. If you donít like it the first time you try it, try it again a month or so later and you might have a brew from a different batch. The batches from the kegs tend to have a much more present rasberry taste and a smoother feel to it. But to put it succinctly, Iíll order this beer anytime I see it in a bar.
