3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draught at the GTMW ’08. Pours a semi-hazy reddish gray amber brew with a fast dissolving pinkish white head that dissipates nearly clean with a film top. Aroma of raspberry koolade with a touch of white bread dough and some flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a tart raspberry and bread flavor. Finish is semi-sweet with a lingering raspberry aftertaste that slowly disappears.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/21/07: Pours a murky ruby red grapefruit color with an airy wispy-lacing light pinkish white head. Aroma of light raspberries and malted wheat with a hint of bready yeast. Body starts well-carbonated and lightly wheaty sweet with some mild clove and fresh tart raspberry flavor. Fairly full-bodied and well-balanced. A surprisingly enjoyable beer for the style.

Enjoyed at Great Taste fest in Madison. Poured cloudy reddish pink with no head. Smelled like sugary raspberry candy. Flavor was more raspberry, but still very artificial. I would have liked some raspberry flavor a la NG’s Raspberry Tart. Oh well. Overall, this was rather wine-coolerish. It beats Leinie’s Berryweiss without question.

On tap at the Delafield Brew Pub. Poured a cloudy ruby red/pink color (kinda looks like pink lemonade) with a very small sized white head. Aromas of raspberries, sweet berries, and very light wheat. Tastes of tart raspberries with very light wheat. Raspberries a tad on the artificial side.

Pink, with a touch of amber, colored hazy liquid. Fluffy pink/white head. Sweet raspberry and banana aromas. Lots of raspberry candy flavors with only a minimal wheat contribution. Too candy sweet for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky, dark ruby grapefruit color with a dense, creamy and light pink head. Leaves sticky lacing as we go. Raspberry iced tea leads the aroma, followed by cloves, strawberry-banana smoothies and citric oranges. Fleeting sweetness at first quaff. Surprisingly retains the banana accents from the hefe yeast strain. Other flavors involve raspberry sweet tea, and lemon and orange citric proclamations; all void of searing acidity. Finishes like cranberry-orange muffins. Much better than expected, for what it’s worth.

Pinkish color with no head. Definite raspberry aroma, but it has a Lysol quality to it. Unfortunately, that sticks around in the flavor. The raspberry itself backs off and is overshadowed by sweet wheat.
