. Aroma is light raspberry and some floral hops. Taste is raspberry a little tart and not too sweet with a wheat malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness near the end. Light to medium body and plenty of carbonation leave a decent feeling on the tongue. not bad a good beer for my girlfriend

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Location: Draft at Maxwell’s Plum, 7/7/13

Aroma: The aroma is of this one sweet fruit and wheat, some candied sugar
Appearance: It pours an orange color with a reddish hue and a white head
Flavor: The taste is much the same, sweet, fruity and a little candy, plus wheat and spice
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has an okay mouthfeel, and a clean, slightly sticky finish
Overall Impression: I thought this one was an alright, but not great, example of the style. Not bad. It’s pretty typical and unexciting overall.

On tap at brewery, pours a clear light amber with a white head that dissipates and leaves some lace. Smells like sweet raspberry, taste like sweet raspberry with a very mild hop finish.

Imagine what full flavour a raspberry wheat could have. Why can’t we get that, instead of what we see here? Garrison seems to have two different tiers for its beer: one for the beer geeks, as we see in the dark lager, spruce, etc... and one for the everyday sales. Sure, they need to make money, but they can obviously make great stuff so why can’t they fix up the everyday beers? This has that typical lack of flavour and high carbonation when passing through your lips, with an eventual kick but nothing to write home about. Aftertaste is artificial raspberry.

Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head, which goes away fast. On the nose its a good raspberry as well with the taste. great summer beer. well carbonated.

Thanks to my dad for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of syrupy raspberry with some wheat notes thrown in for good measure. The flavor follows suit. I get a lot of raspberry, as well as some grain and wheat notes. Thin mouthfeel and high carbonation.
