UPDATED: AUG 22, 2007 Growler: hmm... you guys donít seem to have much respect for this beer, but I liked it. Reddish pour with a white head. Faint raspberry aroma with a great raspberry flavor. It isnít the purest of "beer" but hey, itís a fruit beer by nature and its a good one at that. Very nice refresher for the summer.

2004 growler compliments of bucknaked. Lightly hazy amber pink appearance, little to no head. Flavor of light raspberry syrup. Aroma of light raspberries. Not much going on here. Could be worse (see Spanish peaks honey raspberry). Watery to the extreme. not much detectable wheat, though a bit of a dry vanilla like flavor in the bakcground. Why???

Dirty red with a teeny tiny head. Raspberry dominant in a very sweet aroma with a tiny bit of wheat. Flavor is tart raspberries. Not overpowering. Finish is a slightly nutty wheat. Quoth my friend "it tastes like jam"

Tap: Pours with a medium white head, with a raspberry-red, hazy color. Flavor: Raspberry, very sweet, not much wheat, and too carbonated. Maybe this beer is designed for bars who want a shot at the malt beverage market? Way too sweet, like drinking juice without much complexity to it.

Fairly wheaty. Definite raspberry aroma and flavor. Had a similar mouthfeel and flavor of raspberry iced tea. Decent fruit beer. Succeeded fairly well.

Although I do not normally drink beers such as this I must admit that it has left a lasting impression on me that I will soon not forget. None of the flavors in it were overwhelming, which was good because it allowed me to taste all of them. High Quality.
