Note to admins: this should probably be listed as a fruit beer - tap at Copper Kettle - hazy purplish red with a pillowy pink head - looks great - the use of whole fruit rather than extract or syrup really gave thm great results - the wheat beer base is vey simple - just lightly bready and lighty sweet - the base gives plenty of room for the fruit to shine - moderate tartness and acidity - whole fruit skin and meat earthiness - finish of bitter fruit skin and lingering wheat - very well-executed - reminds me of a better version of the MS blackberry wheat.

Super hazy grapefruity pink with a thin white cap head. Has an aroma of grass and fresh raspberries (not raspberry purée or juice). Great flavor of slightly tart raspberries, surrounded in the middle of the flavor profile by crisp bready wheat tones. Ends wheaty and razzy, delightfully crisp and refreshing with a good medium body. Nice!
