3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Big raspberry aroma hits you on the first whiff. Hazy orange-tan, with a respectable head. The taste is pretty straightforward red-raspberry, extract style. The wheat adds a hint of complexity, but this one is a little one-dimensional, with the sweet raspberry taste dominating. Not really bad for the style, just lacks some subtleties. OK.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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!
