COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a fruit beer which uses a raspberry extract added after conditioning. The beer is unfiltered and should be a little cloudy. This is traditional for wheat beers. The malted wheat itself makes up 20% of the total grain.

A smooth beer. Pale malts throughout which covers most of the aroma and flavor. The raspberry tastes a little synthetic.

12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Clear golden color. Some particles floating about in the body. Minimal ring of white head. Loose short ropes of lace. Nice wheat flavor, and good raspberry. I like it. Moderate sweet taste, light tart. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, light soft, light carbonation. More slick finish. Solid raspberry wheat ale, I enjoyed it.

10/10/2010. Sampled at the brewery. Hazy golden color with a white head. Malt, bread and cereal aromas with hints of raspberries. Refreshing in a way, but really doesn’t impress.

12 oz bottle. Gold and hazy with a white head. The aroma is fresh and sweet with fruit and berries. Similar flavor with wheat malts, lemons, spices. Light body with a soft feel. Pretty sweet and fruity overall, it was OK.

Theydon_Bois (9990) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle at Coopers Highland Pub, Estes Park - 02/06/12. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a tight white head that soon dissipates. Sugary raspberry aroma on the nose allied to wheat and a little pale malt. Teast follows, no real stregth in depth, a little aspartame in the flavour. Light bodied, average carbonation, sweet finish. I’ve rated this beer in the context of it being 90 outside and I wanted refreshment, it did the job! If I stumbled across this in a bar in November I doubt it would rate as highly!

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Aroma is overwhelmingly raspberry. Pours cloudy gold with a small white head. Taste is not as sweet as the aroma would make it seem. Flavor of wheat and raspberry. Refreshing.

Light golden in color. Strong raspberry aroma and flavor. Wish I had more detailed notes, but I really like this one. Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

Bottled. Poured nearly-clear, bright golden with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma picked up raspberry seeds & meat plus some vanilla over pale malts.. the fruit actually worked well.. I kind of dug it. The flavor found more pale and some bready malts at the core, with tart raspberry seeds around.. very dry overall. Light-bodied and dry as mentioned on the palate.. higher carbonation.. not the best feel and flow, but it was aiight.
