UPDATED: DEC 19, 2005 Sampler from bottle at <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/orland-par Orland Park. Well, it pours that kind of champale color thatís usually a warning to me when I try a fruit beer. And yet I keep trying íem. I will itís a bit tangy with raspberry flavor, and finished kind of dry. Okay, but lacks much oomph.

The appearance is golden brown but very cloudy. This is the only "fruit" infused beer that I enjoy because the taste is just a slight hint of raspberry. Oftentimes fruit infused beers can be over powered by the taste of the fruit. There is limited head at the top of this beer and the pour is very smooth. The taste is sweet upfront with a sweet finish. Well worth the purchase ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - small foamy head, clear medium gold color, mild but definitely there raspberry aroma and flavor, pretty decent malt backbone, not overly sweet at all like some fruit beers, pretty good overall actually ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer taste like Bud Lite with a hint of raspberries. An all right beer for a Sunday picnic.

I love sweet beers but this just doesnít cut it. I was hoping. If it was a cider it would be awesome but itís a bland taste. You can taste a raspberry flavor but†flavor tastes kinda gross.

Bottle. This tastes like a watered down version of the Founderís raspberry beer. Itís ok but Iíd rather just buy the Founderís one.

Cloudy orange body with a small head that disappears quickly. Aroma of wheat, bread and raspberries. The flavor is sweet, watery, has raspberries, and finishes with a Brady malt flavor. Weird, but not in a good way.

poured from a bottle. Not an awful beer, since I read the label and was prepared. Small head that dissipated quickly. No purple color. Very slight berry aroma, skunky taste.

Itís kinda bad. They put raspberries in beer. I donít know what i was thinking buying this. Abita makes decent beers, but this is not one of them.
