3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel - my bottle. Hazy pinkish-orange with a small white head. Aroma of fresh raspberry with a nice tartness. Body is thin, but with a good level of carbonation that works well for the style. Nice, refreshing aroma of slightly jammy raspberries and lightly toasted malt, almost like raspberry pie. None of us were expecting much from this to be honest, but it was a very pleasant surprise.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bomber bought at the brewery. Pours pinkish red. As it is without a head it looks exactly like a blush wine. The aroma is of light raspberries. The flavor is all raspberries and water, virtually no malt. Since the mouthfeel is watery, light and not very wheaty at all, the beer reminds me of a cheap wine called Boones Farm.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pinkish with nice head retention. Decent flavour on this if you like strong amounts of raspberry. Quie sweet but balanced with the tart of the berries. A hit amongst the new to flavoured beer crowd.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale strawberry red with a lovely white head and a strong raspberry aroma. Plenty strong raspberry taste - less like the syrupy or tart raspberry puree and more like the vegetal raspberry taste. Sort of like Raspberries were added whole and rinsed in beer and then removed. Strong enough to be more than a hint, though (unlike the Phillips offering). Very creamy but low carbonation. Out of all the raspberry wheats I’ve tasted, this has got to take the cake. Not a style I like, but very good for the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bubbly rose colored pour with a surging white head that falls pretty rapidly. Slightly tart and sweet raspberry soda nose. Grainy wheat flavor, disappointingly low on raspberry flavor, or much of any flavor. Quaffable stuff, but there’s nothing to it.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This thing poured a one-finger frothy head, mostly white but with a pinkish tinge above a well-carbonated hazy body, predominently copper in colour but again with the hints of pink. As for the head, there it was, gone. Aroma was certainly of raspberry and so was the taste. In fact, only raspberry and bugger all to suggest that this might be beer; at least sweetness was not at issue here. Mouthfeel was "average", and the aftertaste was a slight improvement over the initial taste but that isn’t saying much. I just do not like the way this one tastes; too bad as I really like raspberries and beer, too.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very refreshing and tasteful beer. Just the aroma is a llitle bit missing... But normally it should be forbidden to brew beer with rasperry aromas.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
650ml Bottle, 5% a/v. Limited release bought at brewery on July 15 05
Reddish hue with a thin white head. Nose of raspberry with a bit of thin malt. The taste is raspberries, some malt, and absolutely no hops at all. Very watery and thin, and short lasting on the tongue.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours clear pinkish-orange with minimal head, a plethora of fast-moving CO2 streams. Aromatic juicy raspberries on the nose. Starts of very promising with flavours of fresh raspberries, strawberries, jam, but ends abruptly with a water mid-palate and flat light malt finish. Low-medium complexity, low-medium depth, below average transitions, crappy carry, good drinkability. While drinkable and refreshing with an outdoor bbq’d meal, I can’t say it’s a good session beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intense pink colour, with a punch of fresh picked raspberries on the nose. Tastes completely naturally flavoured. A little watered down to be a true flavoured wheat beer, but the refreshing quality overwhelms the fault. Mild hop to it on the aftertaste. Great summer beer!
