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.

Tranquillity (1860) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Yellow body, small white head. Weak aroma and bubble gum flavor. Not good.

cmacklin (852) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2016
341ml bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a medium, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of raspberry and light wheat malt. Sweet flavour of raspberry and wheat with a crisp, slightly tart, dry finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation.

Metalchopz (3078) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2015
6-pack from the NSLC in Halifax. Pours a clean golden colour with a very slight pink hue haze. Raspberry juice aromas over light grain. The raspberry fruit is milder in the taste, showing more the cereal graininess in the finish. Refreshing, grainy and decent fruitiness for this average Raspberry Wheat brew.

cards04 (2648) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
Another bland and boring fruit based beer. Pours a pale yellow. Faint aromas and flavours of raspberries...mostly watery with some wheat flavours. Boring.

dreamflower (767) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Golden peach colour, quite pretty. The raspberry hits right away. Finishes floral. It tastes more like it than it smells, which is very different.

northropfrye (3249) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Light orange body, white frothy head, not much retention. Initial tangy whiff of raspberry that quickly fades. Taste is malty with a touch of sweet raspberry, and a watery finish. Not such an interesting beer, but I actually donít mind this one.

YigSvartka (287) - Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Transparent orange, yellow. Quickly dissipating head. Wheat, honey, and artificial raspberry aroma, although rather mild. Thin. Malt, honey, artificial raspberry. Mildly hoppy and dry finish. Tastes akin to a pale lager with raspberry candies. Not very good, but tolerable.

UXO (1497) - CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours clear medium gold with a short off-white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is artificial raspberry syrup, light wheat, faint grassy hops. (4/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter. (3/10) Light body, low sustained carbonation. (3/5) Maybe an OK thirst quencher on a hot day. ÖThen again, maybe not, given the fairly fake raspberry aftertaste. This is getting down into mediocre macrobrew territory - donít bother. (7/20)

DomD (253) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Strong raspberry aroma. Pours a clear pale golden, with white head. Has a very light sour taste. Light body, oily texture, with lively carbonation, and a slightly astringent finish. Not bad, but definitely a summer brew, as in it would be good on a hot day.

shorlin (721) - St. Johnís, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Very clear fizzy, dark gold colour. Artificial raspberry aroma like Swedish Berries candy. That really dominates, but thereís a little wheat in there somewhere. Taste is more of that raspberry. Feel is light, which is probably the best thing about the beer.
