2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at the brewpub. Clear golden with a hint of copper. Raspberry in the nose and flavor. This is the same base as the honey wheat I just had and they taste the same. Subtract some of the honey and add the berries. This is uninspiring.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewpub. Golden yellow with a thick white head. Some chill haze present. Strong raspberry aroma without a sickeningly sweet chemical fruit flavor. Fairly decent balance. Nice hop level results in a dry bitter finish. Good attempt at a style I generally dislike. As with all the beers here, great lacing in the glass.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light yellow and clear in the glass. Good carbonation. Aromas are overwhelmingly of sweetened raspberry. Taste bears this out, with a raspberry popsicle kind of flavoring. Thin on the palate. What wheatiness there is to the beer fades long before the raspberry lets go of your tongue.
