   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
Gr0ve (2113) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2008
Half pint draught. Reddish golden colour. Cloudy with a medium-sized nice creamy white head. Rich aroma with a slightly sweet raspberry aroma. Feels really thin when it enters the mouth. Very crisp from both carbonation and bittering hops. Weak raspberry flavours. Lacks the bready richness of a weissbier. No aftertast to speak of.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Light-headed clearn golden ale with a very active carbonation. Quite clean-flavoured, as much in aroma than taste. Carbonation takes a lot of room in this otherwise dull and cerealic ale that aims at basic refreshment. Minimally floral, kinda fresh, but biting mouthfeel and soulless.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2007
This beer pours dark gold with a decent head. The notes of the berries show thorugh the aroma into a bit of a muted mouthfeel. It does not over power the flavor of the wheat on the mouthfeel. The palate is clean with some decent finish notes of the hops.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2005
hapy golden coloured beer with a thick white head. Aroma of tart raspberry and light clove spice underneath it. Flavour is similar, raspberry is fairly restrained, itís there on the front but then drops back leaving a lemony, slightly spicy witbier in its place. Actually quite good. Well-hopped.

See below for what beaconstreet has to say, he was with me. Props to the bartender for the free sample. I told beaconstreet that appearing to be taking detailed notes whenever we were out would get us bonuses. Reverse Sabotage. As for the beer, I love raspberries. Respek

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2004
More or less, the MO of making this beer is as eyedrinkale described--Summer Solicetice Wheat (not a bad beer itself), infused with rasperries. Nice bonus in that this one was thrown to us by the bartendress since she saw we were taking notes. Sweet, cereal-fresh raspberry taste. Loviní it. Clear looking a bit. Looking slightly thing--but almost the award winning golden of its cousin.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Nothing more than the Summer Solstice Wheat with some rasberry flavoring added. I usually am not a fan of this practice but I assume itís the most cost effective way of doing things, short of charging $18 for a growler.

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2003
Lightly hazy, honey gold. Raspberry Kool-aid nose. Dry raspberry flavor without a whole lot else going on. Light to medium palate.
