Crushed at Liquids and Solids. Good tart aroma and flavor. Raspberries for sure. Nice for a Saturday session beer kinda thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. The pour yields a lightly hazy, cranberry colored body with a moderate, collapsing head of pinkish-off-white foam. Lacing is thin and fleeting, rejoining the body below quite quickly. The nose is based in clean, fresh wheat grain, with a nice raspberry overtone that does justice to the natural sweet-tart juiciness that the fruit has to offer. Everything seems quite subtle and watery, and that carries over to the flavor. Raspberries bring just a touch of citric acidity, but also carry ample sugars, keeping things pretty balanced. The wheat background doesn’t do much, really, and things are certainly more diluted than they should be. The palate is light, bordering on watery, though it is lively, crisp, and refreshing. Overall, it’s pretty darn nice as non-sour fruit beers go. I just wish it had a little more oomph and body behind it

Bottle. Hazy strwberry colored beer with a pinkish cream colored head. Light raspberry and wheat aroma. Wheat and raspberry flavor. Mediumb odied. Raspberry and wheat lingers. Straight forward, but not good enough to win a silver medal in my oppinion.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz capped bottle. Pours a hazy cranberry golden with a good size ’fizzy’ pinkish white head that fades quickly. Nose is fairly full of really raspberries, very juicy like, with a very full wheat under tone. Body is medium to medium light with decent carbonation. Pretty straight forward with concentrated raspberry juice and estery dusty wheat. Decent fruit beer, but a bit spendy imho.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours a dirty pink grapefruit with a slight pinkish head. Smooth raspberry aroma. Better than any I can remember. Medium minus body with creamy carbonation. The raspberry is the flavor. It’s part of the beer. It provides the bitter. The bitter carries on and on. Very good fruit beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a dusky reddish amber, like raspberry jam mixed into a beer. It has a slowly dissipating, fizzy, off-white head. Great label art with a bear hiding in a berry bush. The aroma is dominated by big juicy raspberries. There are some mild beer-ish notes and a bit of wheat spice, but it’s mostly raspberry jam/sorbet. The flavor is moderately sweet with a refreshing mildly sour raspberry tang. This is no cloyingly sweet fruit syrup beer, nor does it taste like artificial or canned fruit. The raspberries are juicy, but the fruit flavor is mostly dry. It’s a shame that the underlying beer doesn’t contribute more, but it also doesn’t get it in the way or throw things off. There are malt notes and possibly even a touch of hops in the finish, but the beer is just a backdrop for the fruit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy grapefruity pink, thin white head. Juicy raspberry aroma, fresh and a little dusty. Concentrated, not jammy. Sweet and tart, clean, slick and refreshing. Very reminiscent of fresh fruit.

Pint at the Hanger on the Wharf overlooking the Juneau harbour listening to Alt Nation on the bar satelite radio. Red tinted orange. Lasting thin layer of white foam. Soft raspberry wheat scent. Zesty and refreshing. Still retains the yeasty character of a wheat beer. Long raspberry finish and aftertaste. Decent fruit beer.

On tap @ Humpy’s. Red/gold with a small head. Aroma of raspberries and wheat, as it should I suppose. The flavor was mostly sweet but not overly sweet like some fruit beers. Medium to light bodied with a slightly tart, dry finish. I’m not a huge fan of fruit beers but this one was pretty good, maybe just because it wasn’t too sweet.
