3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Golden pour with some white head. Aroma is full of raspberry jam. Flavor follows a bit cloying but not bad for a fruited wheat beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aroma of raspberries and flowers. Pretty dry for a fruit beer, but still full of berry flavor. I don’t know why beer geeks regularly underrate fruit beers - they are just too wimpy for a lot of guys, I suppose - but I like them. Maybe it is because I wear glasses and went to a good college. This was a berry nice beer, in my opinion!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Iron Hill Brewery in Maple Shade. Pours a clear copper colour with a white head. Has an aroma of raspberry and wheat. Tastes like raspberry, wheat, and lemon tea. Has a watery palate and the aroma is pretty weak. The beer itself, has an interesting brewed tea aftertaste. This beer isn’t rating well, which leaves this apprentice feeling a bit self conscious about the rating I’ve given it. I must just like fruit beers.

Deeper golden color with no head. Raspberry aroma and that is it. Slight tart raspberry flavor that seems fake followed by some off flavors. Very thin. Tasted oxidized.

I find that most raspberry beers taste the same. Aroma of bread with a hint of raspberry. Flavor is mostly raspberry. A bit too much for me. A little watery. OK.

i don’t know why everyone else is rating it so low, it’s one of the best wheat beers i’ve had, hazy, fruity but not overpowering, but the aroma is a bit sour
