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 that’s usually a warning to me when I try a fruit beer. And yet I keep trying ’em. I will it’s a bit tangy with raspberry flavor, and finished kind of dry. Okay, but lacks much oomph.

Pours a hazy golden with thin white head. Cut straw and raspberry on the nose. Slight citrus with a dominating raspberry hit and some earthy after tones. Nope.

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - cloudy red orange with a decent head. Nose - raspberries, light malt and a touch of caramel. Taste - more raspberries, sweet malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - yeah quite pleasant.

climberbob (266) - Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle into Pilsner glass. Hazy copper w a faint raspberry tinge in the beer and the head. Noticeable raspberry aroma and taste but not overpowering. More tart than sweet which is good. Some additional floral and hay notes but very much in the background. Much better than some fruit beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Austin_Ripper (48) - Iowa, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a cloudy (hazy) amber color. Smells like raspberries and wheat. Taste is a watered down wheat beer with raspberries. Nothing to get excited about, but definatley not a 15 like the overall rating would lead you to believe.

Pours hazy golden peach tone with small white head. Nose is wheat, berries, yeast. Less sweet than expected, the palate is cereal with tart berries, well balanced. The body is somewhat thin. This makes a nice change of pace on a hot day without demanding attention.

It pours a strange purple color with a white head. The aroma was fruity. The taste is fruit and grain. It was pretty refreshing. It’s a good summer beer.

Pours a hazy gold-orange with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and fruit (berries). Tastes of wheat, malt and raspberries with a bit of hops in the finish-- watery flavour. Thin bodied.
