3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 (only in Alaska) ml. bottle. Pours a medium off white, well retained head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy reddish amber (SRM 13) body.....nose is light malts, with hints of toast, cereal, raspberry.......taste is raspberry, wheat malts, finishing just short of dry....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds foamy quality. This is a very nice fruit beer. It is not particularly complex, with the raspberry was used just enough to be present, but not enough to totally dominate the simple malts. It was not at all astringent which can be an effect from raspberry used in large quantities, and it is quite refreshing. I wonder how much they have varied the recipe since its initial release. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

The fruit on the nose of this beer is AMAZING! You can tell how much raspberries are in the recipe. My wife approves of it as well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a reddish orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is raspberry fruit, light honey, and wheat. Taste is nice fruit berry up front with that raspberry, switches to a nice grain and wheat finish. Not overpowering syrup fruit like a lot of American flavored wheat, which makes this very nice.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a pint glass.
2.5 A: Moderately hazed orange amber color. Two fingers of frothy beige/tan head. Retention is poor and no lacing is left.
3.5 S: Smells just like raspberry cider or something along those lines. Lots of raspberry, but not a lot of "beer." Still, it smells good enough.
3.0 T: It tastes like beer, but not a very impressive one. Standard, neutral maltiness. Enough raspberry to give some flavor and a mild tartness, but not enough to make its addition work (unlike NG RT).
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good higher end carbonation. Not very creamy, but crisp.
3.0 D: Drinkable, but not something you’d buy again.
Serving type: bottle

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer is an ugly reddish brown with a very thin head. No lacings on the glass. Sour raspberries and some maltiness in both the aroma and body. Wheat provides good support but finish is peppery and sourness needs washed away. Best served very cold.

Bomber thanks to Mike. Pours a mostly clear reddish hue with a medium white head. A nice sweet berry nose. The flavor is mostly clean with grains, earthiness and a big burst of berries. Very mellow overall. Decent.
