Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2007
On tap at the brew-pub. Light orange/red pour. Fruity and slightly wheaty aroma. Light and tart raspberry flavor. Nothing overpowering, just a well done, smooth drinking fruit beer.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy reddish brown in colour with a medium sized head. Kinda artificial and sticky. Has a nice tartness though. But still too sweet.

7/06/2007: Roundhouse Raspberry Wheat Ale is a hazy light amber/honey color. It has a frothy white crown that leaves thick, foamy lacing on the glass. The aroma is fresh raspberries and the flavor is wheat malt and raspbeery. The raspberry seems fresh and real rather than fake or extract-like. This beer has a medium body and is soft and mellow. This is a nicely done raspberry wheat beer.

Draught sample at Flossmoor Station Restaurant and Brewery in Flossmoor, Illinois. Rating #42 for this beer...

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2007
On tap @ the brew pub: Pours a clear light copper with a white head. Aroma, raspberries and that was about it. Flavor, raspberry, sweet. Thin and medicinal, not too good.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2007
Draught. At the brewpub. Hazy gold-amber with an average off-white creamy head. Smelled like sugar, raspberry popsicle and a bit of perfume hops. Tastes of fake raspberry flavouring, admixed with slightly harsh grain, some stale (hop?) bitterness in the finish trying to combat the sugariness. This is watery, grainy, flat and leaves a weird harsh/sweet aftertaste - not good at all.

Chicago trip. Saturday 12:11. Sample tray. Dark yellow. Nothing subtle about the nose, lots of raspberries. Soft body and softer raspberry flavour. Tart finish.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2007
On tap at Flossmoor. Poured a clear medium amber with a short creamy white head and thick lacing. Raspberry puree is the most prominent feature of the aroma.. some wheaty notes and spices in the distance, but it was hard to get past the fruit. I really enjoyed the raspberries in the flavor.. fresh with tart wheaty accents.. sweet overall, but it was a good natural sweetness. Lighter-bodied with some tartness on the palate.. felt OK, good stuff overall!

Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a smaller bubbly white lacing head. Aroma of raspberry, some wheat and floral notes. Flavor of raspberry, some tart wheat, light citrus and a touch of bitterness.

This was the third sample of the night. Again, it was tackled in short order as it lacked the complexity and alcoholic punch of the last few samples. I would categorize this as about the same as the Station Master Wheat. If you want some fruit instead of a normal wheat beer this is your beer. It’s not as strong as most fruit beers which makes it inviting in my opinion.

Aroma / Appearance - The body was the color of slightly ripe raspberries with a thin oily head. Raspberries and wheat were no shock. On the whole I was reminded of a toned down Belgian Red or perhaps cranberry stuffing.

Flavor / Palate - A balanced profile consisting of cherry pie filling and white toast create a simple but capable introduction. Afterwards comes sourdough bread topped with fruit jam. The aftertaste is sweet and dry. While it does not blow me away, it is not a bad beer overall.

The pour reveals a hazy amber color with a thin offwhite head. Interesting aroma and flavor of raspberries and wheat. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Like the cherry wheat, this beer is good for what it is.
