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.

Color is golden with light carbonation and a very thin head. Aroma of fresh raspberry and a little grain. Taste is light and fruity. Starting with a light body it goes down easy. Finish comes on with the flavor of raspberry and a hint of grass followed by just a touch of bitterness. After taste is clean leaving a faint sweet berry taste behind. This is a very good fruit brew, its refreshing with bright fruit flavors.

This has some nice raspberry in the nose. Not too much wheat in the flavor, this is pretty light and smooth. Pleasantly surprised by itís drinkability.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Bottle courtesy of aplusbreaks. Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of raspberries. Tastes of raspberries and citrus with a buttery finish. Reminds me of juicy juice.

Golden color......hazy. White, pillowy head. Very strong raspberry aroma. Slightly sweet taste of raspberry in the front. Mouthfeel has a mild crispness......finishes with a subtle malt back and a slight raspberry aftertaste.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Poured from a bottle. Poured a light amber color with a thin white head. Raspberry accompanies a malty aroma. Sweet malt entry leads into an artificial raspberry taste that isnít too pleasant. Lingering finish of artificial raspberries. Thin and watery, and overall just not very impressive, which sucks, because I like to support local breweries.

Beaver (1285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with no head at all.

The aroma is sweet raspberries and honey with a little wheat and malt.

The flavor is some plasticy skunky malts with raspberry flavor and a chemical bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium and watery with no carbonation.

Overall, this was much better on tap at the brewery. There it was very fruity and one-dimensional but decent. In the bottle, itís pretty nasty. I did get this bottle from the brewery just last week.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a hazy dark yellow color with a small white head. Lots of raspberry in the aroma, along with sweet malts. Taste is very similar, with a good creamy body and surprisingly full mouthfeel. A pleasant surprise!

ChainGangGuy (4364) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Appearance: Pours a pale yellow body with a bubbly white head. Smell: Letís test this aroma out. Raspberries, check! Wheat, check! Taste: Raspberry flavor with a light, mild wheatiness. Though mild, itís still hoppier and more bitter than Iíd have expected from a raspberry wheat. Gah! Thereís an odd, plasticy quality to the finish. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Drinkability: Tackling a climb up to the summit of the real Longs Peak would be far, far easier than finishing this beer.

shigadeyo (3006) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2007
9/09/2007: Longs Peak Raspberry Wheat pours a hazy straw color with a very thin white crown. The aroma is raspberry extract and perfume. This beer tastes like raspberry perfume with a tinge of slightly sour yeasty wheat in the finish. The soapy aftertaste is even more unappealing than the main flavor! This beer is fairly light.

12 fl. oz. bottle from hopdog via trade (bonus). Thanks again Steve! Rating #36 for this beer...
