A great wheat beer with a lots of raspberry flavor and a great aroma and redish color.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy light orange with a thin film. Nice little berry aroma and well balanced fruit character over the wheat basis. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Strong raspberry aroma. Reddish amber in color. Sweet and highly dominant taste of fruity raspberries. Slight seedy flavor, but mostly just fruit flavor. My suspicion was that this has to be made with a flavor syrup. The bartender, Neil, says that it is all berry. I don’t even like fruit beers, but this is pretty darn good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy brown with a blg, fluffy white head. Butterscotch, raspberry, resinous aroma. Nice raspberry tartness, not artificial like some many other raspberry wheats. A nice leathery, lightly bitter finish. Malt backbone is slightly sweet and accompanies the wheat/berry tanginess quite well. A very nice razz wheat.

at the brewpub. Bent River does a wonderful job of incorparating fresh fruit into their beer. in this brew, the raspberry aroma and flavor is prominent on the front end, but is not an overpowering force. the backbone is a mild wheat beer but overall this is just a fine refreshing beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer #29 at GTMW, 8-8-09! Slightly pinkish in the glass, overlaying a cloudy yellow, thin head. Some raspberry smell, not overly done. However, raspberries get a little cloying in the taste, so I had to ding it a little bit. Everything else about it makes for a fine, refreshing fruit beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy straw body with a fluffy white head. This actually has a soft, fresh fruit aroma. The raspberries blend nicely with the wheat and the drink ends in a light sweet-sour note. Better suited for hot weather, although it was unseasonably warm today.
