bhensonb (10906) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Medium raspberry aroma. Hazy orange gold color with no real head. Starts with weak raspberry. Weak body, pumped up a bit as the fizziness fizzes. Weakly sweet. Finish is rather weak raspberry seed. Overall it’s fairly refreshing. Likely to be good around the pool.

Leighton (10689) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2010
UPDATED: APR 20, 2010 Tap at Ulysses. Not bad at all. Pours a light, orange-red with a foamy white head. Wheat nose with slight hints of raspberry and yeast. Flavor is very bready, with some mild malty sweetness and fruity tartness. Light to medium in body, well carbonated and pretty crisp. If you like fruit and/or wheat beers, this will be right up your alley.
