hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Draft… RBSG 2010… Cloudy golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Heavy banana and clove in the bouquet, but no raspberries. Medium to full-bodied with a very creamy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is quite tangy, fruity and sweet. Here is where I really pick up the raspberries. Medium-dry finish.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Served on draft at Hopcat in Grand Rapids, and labeled there just as Poolside Pale Wheat. Pours a pale orange color with a medium creamy head. Good head retention . Nice lacing. The aroma is bready and spicy with caramel and faint fruity notes. The taste is tart fruity notes, bread and spice. Medium bodied, Quite tart and fairly interesting beer.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Draft at CAH. Pours heavily turbid straw colored with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is big cherry, pale malt, mild hops, bready, slight floral. Tastes of big cherry, malty, with hops, a subdued muted maltiness matched by a strong yet well integrated cherry flavor. Fairly rich and complex as fruit beers go.

Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2010
On draught at Gallo’s Tap Room. The beer is a murky reddish-orange color with a thin white head that diminishes slowly. Thin rings of lacing. Aroma of wheat, cherries and yeast. Light, clean body with a tart cherry character and flavors of wheat and mild yeast. The finish is fruity with a banana and cherry aftertaste. A somewhat run-of-the mill beer overall.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2009
On tap at Maduro. Poured medium peachy-golden with a well-retained cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up dry, tangy cherry and yeasty notes first and foremost with a crisp, airy, summery impression. The flavor found tangy cherries first with pale malts and a touch of light fruit behind.. somewhat deeper cherry meat at the core.. finished dry and yeasty with cherries and spicy wheat. Lighter-bodied with the fruit complementing the wheat decently.. refreshing stuff.

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2010
On tap at Fruit in the Room at Cigar City Brewing. Pours murky copper with sort of a pink hue. The aroma is fruity with sort of a blueberry - raspberry combination and then becoming assertive sweet banana, wheat and bubble gum. The taste is similar being fruity strawberry and then wheat, banana and bubble gum.

On tap at HopCat while in town for RBSG. Pours a milky soft greyed yellow with a medium white head. Light banana yeast and a little cherry. Soft and light cherry flavors, cherry and wheat. Gentle cherry on the finish. Tart and crisp.
