3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle - Pours a ridiculously huge head. I was able to keep from losing any beer as the bottle didnít overflow on me like some experienced, but it took several stages to finish pouring this beer. Itís pink with a mess of small yeast floaters. The head leaves some lacing. The aroma is very much of raspberry with some yeast in there as well. The flavor is dominated by raspberry. Itís sweet with some mild hops in there that comes through more in the finish. Itís light and refreshing, but avoids being watery, unlike a couple other raspberry wheats beers Iíve had recently. Itís far from my favorite style, but really this brew is a pretty good fruit beer.

Just OK fruit beer. The raspberry flavor was somewhat syrupy...not very natural. The whole thing seemed a bit cloying, but not offensively so. Some grassy wheat aspects noticed as well. Not horrible, but nothing Iíd repeat.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky copper color with disconcerting floaties in it. This bottle was very carbonated. It was all I could do to pour it into the glass, and while my back was turned the foam extruded out of the top of the bottle. The aroma didnít bother me too much. It was not as artificial as most, and it was like berry scented cotton candy. This is a very sweet beer, with lots of white sugar, and a berry flavor like the syrup that they use to make snow cones. The over-carbonation was distracting on the tongue. A little bit of this goes a long way.

Chunks floating around. Another beer that is very fizzy. But an overly forced fizzy like a pop. Donít like. Sweet sugar cookie pie crust. Thin mouthfeel; nothing interesting.

Iím sorry, but the fruit flavoring was just way too artificial tasting for me, regardless of their using a raspberry puree. The nose and the taste were like overly sweet candy. Looks nice, a dark amber with a tall, well sustained off-white head.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Explodes out of the bottle, too much. I lost almost half of the beer from teh overflow. The color is a combination of ruby and copper with a dirty white head. The aroma is very berry. Raspberry aroma is a bit sour and little else comes thru. Flavor has the requsite fruit presence but it is a bit jammy. Has a wheat character with some noticable yeast flavors that come out, but almost seperate from teh berry. It seems like two different beers that are not blended together well since you get one flavor, then the other.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Open the bottle and it "ejaculates" all over me, the carpet, table, and everything else within reach. OK, maybe I shook it? No, same thing happens with the next bottle which had been chilling for hours and was removed very carefully from the fridge. Anyway, aroma is sweet wheat, with hints of raspberry candy. Flavor is kinda bland... and tastes more like artificial flavoring than fruit.
