2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is essentially a wine cooler. The aroma is is medicinal with a hint of tart, under-ripened fruit. The appearance is reminiscent of a V-8 splash, a bit pulpy and sort of a cloudy juice color. The malt gives more wheat character than anything else, with the thin crispness of the berries at the end. I find the body much to light to support the fruitiness of the beer. Overall, better than Shock Top Raspberry but not something I will buy again.

Fruit aroma -- citrus, tart orange. Cloudy dark orange pour with white foam. Berry notes come through in the taste, with elements of citrus behind. The finish is hoppy and slightly bitter. A little disappointing in the end.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an orange color. Aroma of wheat, some blueberry, and a little sweetness. Taste follows the nose with medium sourness which helps give it some added flavor. An odd flavored beer. Someone's buying this stuff though because it's widely available.

Bleh. Is this really their trademark beer? Plain w/ some raspberry coming through. Average pour, faint aroma, & ok mouthfeel. Passable on a very hot day I suppose but not recommended!

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden color. Medium foam head. Aroma is of wheat, citrus and raspberry. Taste is malty with wheat and slight hint of raspberry. Not as sweet or interesting as I thought it was gonna be, I might drink it again.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a huge head of white foam. Nice tart, tangy, sour aroma. Taste is watery and thin. Smells much better than it tastes.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Aroma is light biscuit malts, hint of fruit? Appearance is cloudy light orange with light green/yellow at tops and bottom, light reddish/purple hue, trace sparkle, small bits of berry in there as advertised, no head but thin white ring and trace lacing. Taste is mix of sweet and tart berry over pilsner malt base, not entirely harmoniously. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture and soft to average carbonation, dry slightly bitter finish. Overall, as advertised--a subtle coloration, fruity aroma and tartly sweet taste. This is pretty weak all around.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy red orange that has a purple haze if you hold it up to the sun. A lovely raspberry aroma. The taste is like a raspberry ice lolly with a bit of a lager finish. It’s a love it or hate it beer and I love it.
