COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp and lightly malted, this Golden Wheat Ale is distinguished by its natural raspberry flavour. A one of a kind taste unlike most traditional beers, this unique and refreshing brew is only available during the summer.

Draft at Atlantic Beer Festival Moncton. Crystal clear golden yellow color, white head. Aroma of subtle raspberry bubblegum. Taste is bittersweet berries and straw.

A decent raspberry, not too intense sweet fruit like many other raspberry beers. Pours an ugly clear yellow. Smells just like raspberry cheesecake. Tastes real, not like concentrate, but more juice than beer. Could use more alcohol. Slightly sour finish, but good. Had in the bottle at the brewery.

She best be a scorcher for this beer. Pretty one dimensional and not a great dimension either. It does leave a nice real raspberry aftertaste but there is just something about it actually going down that is mildly unpleasant. Smells of honey, wheat and razzies, quite sweet and mildly bitter. A pale orange, lightly headed and soft carbonated quaff perhaps better when mixed with their Nut Brown.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. I get a lot of artificial raspberry, as well as some grain and wheat notes. Thin mouth feel and high carbonation like a soda pop.

Clear amber pour with white head. Aroma is raspberry, wheat. Flavour has real raspberry, wheat, sweet bread. Dry, raspberry finish. Sweet malts, but the Raspberry isn’t sweet or artificial. Quite well done for what it is.

Jaune avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme des framboises et blé. Le goût est du malt, un peu de blé, et un peu de framboises. Le goût est une assez bonne représentation de framboise, pas comme les bières fruitées canadien qui sont par habitude, selon moi, un peu acide et artificielle.

Had a few bottles of this last Summer and quite enjoyed it. I have never been very fond of fruit beer, but this one hits the spot on a hot Summer day. Has a nice sweet floral aroma. It taste of raspberries of course, which I find most fruit beers don’t taste like the fruit they should, but this one pulls it off, and not too sweet.

. 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 (4037) - 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.
