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.

First and only fruit beer that didn’t taste like a beer with fruit juice added to it

22oz bottle poured into a Flute at 38°. Color is a reddish amber with light carbonation and a small tight white head. Aroma is a bright fresh raspberry scent. It has a light body with a crisp clean mouth feel. Flavor of fresh raspberries and a touch of wheat then a very mild bitterness. After taste is clean with a light dry feel coming out of the bitterness. Overall this is a very tasty fruit wheat, one of the best I can recall having.

22oz bomber. Unfiltered glowing red-orange with a creamy, thin off-white/pinkish head. This is probably one of the better raspberry beers I’ve had. Fresh red raspberry taste, a touch of rindy dryness, along with some mellow wheat, and a very smooth meidum body. Not hoppy, not sour..pleasantly unique and non-gimmicky. Simple in it’s essence, but one to appreciate if you’ve had countless subpar raspberry beers.

22oz bottle -
Hugely satisfying and immensely quaffable due to the generous amount of raspberry flavors found in both the aroma and flavor of the beer. Rarely do I find the raspberry flavors to be natural tasting, and carry some of the tartness found in fresh raspberries. It’s found here, along with some tannic seediness. Some light lemony notes can be found on the palate, and I’d be hard pressed to say this is a wheat base beer just because of the amount of jammy raspberries that are presented here. Delicious.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber into a weizen glass in late 2013.
A: Red, caramel color. Large fluffy head.
S: Raspberry, wheat.
T: Follows the nose along with some banana and very slight bitterness.
M: Creamy smooth.
O: This review is from my notes for the 2013 version. The raspberry went very well with the wheat and banana flavors. It did have a very slight edge to it, but that faded quickly. I loved it and wish that I could have had the 2014 version, but it was only released in Alaska this time.

A solid raspberry beer right here. Not perfect but thank god they didn’t over sweeten it as is the tendency.

Aroma is raspberries, wheat and slightly musty. The flavor is raspberries, wheat, grains, mild sweetness and a tangy/tart finish.
