COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a filtered American wheat beer, with a touch of natural raspberry flavor and aroma. Before you pass this one over because it’s a “fruit” beer, try it on a hot summer afternoon. Our brewers even admit it’s their beer of choice during those hot summer beer festivals.

North Wales location. Clear golden body with no fruit coloration. Aroma is of sweet raspberry syrup. Light flavor with less obnoxious raspberry than anticipated. Moderately sweet but drier than expected. Mild wheaty character with light tartness and a quick finish. A mundane fruit beer.

egajdzis (5305) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet rasperry and a tart wheatiness. Taste was very bland, sweet raspberries, grains and a sweet maltiness. Rather forgettable.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Draught sample at Iron Hill, West Chester. Bitter tart raspberry aroma, acidic and a bit sourish. Raspberry concentrate or flavoring rather than fresh raspberries was used, and that is telling. Hazy dull gold with almost no head. Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with acidity and sweet tart raspberry flavor. No strong wheat profile, but is American wheat. Mild malt. Fruity and a bit dull overall with light funkiness. After is mild and chalky fruity, medium bitter.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2005
Rejoice your mom can put down that berry flavored Zima and finally drink beer at Iron Hill. This was nothing more than a standard lager with some raspberries thrown it. Some malt presaence. Eh keep on moving.

Tastes like redbull, smells like raspberries and plastic. I didn’t really enjoy it.

This was a rather bland and ordinary beer in all aspects. Something I would still drink though.

Even though this is more of a feminine selection, as a male I will admit I like this beer. I appreciate the balance of raspberry flavor and wheat complexity in this brew. To me, if a beer can be slammed or enjoyed over the course of an hour, it has great versatility. I feel that this beer has that. I assume over time I will realize more important factors. As an amateur reviewer though, I am inclined to lean toward my instinctual opinions on certain beers.

desurfer (1212) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Pours a very light gold with a pillowy white head. Aroma full of, well, raspberries, with some sweetness underneath. Flavor is very fruity, much more so than other fruit beers I’ve tried. Nice thirst quencher on a muggy afternoon.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Clear, bright amber appearance. Raspberry evident in the aroma as soon as you lift the glass. Fizzy carbonation over a bready malt flavor. Thin taste reflects the raspberry additive. Some bitterness on the back of the throat. Thin, crisp, fairly dry finish.
