1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Thanks to richbrew. Bottle: Characteristically cloudy wheat body, orange colour, head is flaky and light. Heavily frizzy, light, thin body wheat and raspberry are notable but not overpowering.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pour. Hazy golden amber with good white head, but fades quickly. Nice lacing. Sweet raspberry aroma. Smooth light body. Taste is raspberry, cranberry, and light grapefruit. Initially sweet but then balances with tart. Not an abundance of depth (probably why many low ratings), but tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent hazy brown to a glossy looking purple perhaps (do I really want to say that, well, okay, I will). There’s a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipates within about less than thirty seconds with a fizzy sound. There’s no lacing whatsoever.
The smell has a fairly decent raspberry-esque aroma flowing over some light grainy/wheat tones.
The taste took those flavors and adds a nice light sweet feel.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light but could also be construed as a medium in body. I would say this was for the most part fairly sessionable.
Overall, hey not a bad fruit beer whatsoever, the wheat helps to balance it a bit and make it somewhat enjoyable, however Abita doesn’t distribute to my current neck of the woods so I probably won’t be seeing this again for a while.

Drank this bottle at The Waverly on an Ingersoll crawl. Dark kind of fruity flavor. I like!

Not sure why this gets low ratings. I have had this in bottle and on tap. The draft version in my view is better and not as sweet. This is a lovely refreshing beer, aroma of raspberry is there but not strong, it is sweet and little bitterness. I live it and always look forward to a pint when on vacation in Florida.

Bottle. Aroma is sweet. Small hints of raspberry. Taste is same. Mild with raspberry. Very light easy to drink. Too sugary for me.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(US backlog SEP2012 - NOLA) 12oz bottle, luckily available as refrigerated single... Girly-sweet cranberry (ironically more so than raspberry) juice of a beer mix, thin and light-saccharine, extract-laden, Shock-Top-like interpretation of fruit wheat ale as neither ale nor fruit: a composition of artificial compromises. Still drinkable, instantly forgettable thirst quencher, then soon after thirst-creator under the beating NOLA sun.

Pours a pale gold with a ruby tinge, and a white head.
