3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

On Tap. Poured a light hazy yellow with a small white head. Strong dominating raspberry aroma. Tastes of light raspberries (not as strong as the aroma would leave you to believe) and light wheat. Watery body.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Usual yellow, a mite hazy. Big raspberry in nose, sweet and fruity. Starts fruity but not enough, at least some toastiness follows. Was labeled on the menu as an American Wheat plus raspberry, and it pretty much lives up to the underwhelming legacy of your typical American Wheat.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2004 An enoyable American Wheat with a fragrance that impresses even the non beer drinker into having one poured for them. Pours a little cloudy while producing little head. An Enjoyable beer for desert.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very nice raspberry wheat. The color is strawberry blondish, with a nice head which forms nice lace. This is not a wimpy fruit beer. It has a nice wheat beer dose of malt and hops, with overtones of raspberry (naturally), orange, cinnamon, and mango. A great spring/ summer beer.

On tap at brewery: Light yellow color. Little head, no carbonation. Raspberry nose, very sweet. Light intense raspberry taste, but kind of soapy finish.

This is just a marketing beer to broaden their offering of styles. Candy-like nose and tastes, of course of raspberries. Thin and weak. Un-serious.
