Terrible. I tried this at a beer festival (too embarassed to pick up a purple box at the store) and I had to poor it out. Unbearable. I hate to rate this beer as such, having tried it only once in less than perfect conditions, but Iíll have trouble ever trying it again.

Bottled. Great smell, but a taste like raspberry sparkling water with an intial beer taste. Goes down like water too, not satisfying, and not very fruity. Was enjoyable once I accepted it was more of a very carbonated raspberry juice, and it got better as it warmed up.

More raspberry than wheat (unfortunately) with a gold color, no hop at all, and a sugary finish. Aroma was to be desired for a fruit beer, almost non-existent. Two sips may give you a hangover headache to regret.

Good balanced brew. The rasberry is faint which allows the wheat taste to shine.

Perfect if youíre already drunkenly wandering the sleazy-ass French Quarter and you want a purplish beer. To be avoided in ALL other circumstances.

Looks and tastes like grape soda. Very strange.

Letís just say this isnít my favorite beer in any sense of the word, and we can move on.

Nice raspberry flavor, pours a light amber. Light, sweet beer to compliment Louisiana summer evenings.

Drank this bottle at The Waverly on an Ingersoll crawl. Dark kind of fruity flavor. I like!

Such a pretty pour, label design, and fragrance, but it finishes light and un-beer-like.
