A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, chemical powdered fruit extracts, light acidic points. In mouth, a light fruity wheat with light lactic points, summer quaffer, boring. Bottled at ROC Empire Brewfest, Feb. 19 2011.

This is a fairly good raspberry beer. Body is nice wtih good balance. Raspberry flavor is evident, but not too crazy. Not bad.

adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle @ home. Hazy, orangish peach appearance with a cream colored head. Fairly rich raspberry syrup, well carbonated, light grainy skunk aroma. High, prickly carbonation. Fairly potent, yet dull raspberry flavor with notes of toasted grain, grass, and hay. Bleh.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Bottle. Weak wheat taste and the fruit comes through as just a sourness. Not real fruity. Drinkable, but I don’t think this is as good as it used to be.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Very light, hazy, straw-colored brew. Quickly dissipating, fizzy white head. The nose is of yeast, raspberries, banana and apricot. Lightly floral and interesting. Lightly malty flavor. Tangy with plenty of fresh raspberries and traces of fuzzy fruit. Well-balanced and fairly thin with a touch of honey. Light-bodied with a fizzy, dry mouthfeel. Very refreshing late Summer beer.
