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.

Tap. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium white head. Watery with a flavor of slightly sweet raspberries in moderation and chewt wheat. There seems to be something missing in this beer.

dmac (4206) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Draft at Willmington. Poured a hazed dirty light brown with a small off white bubbly head. Aroma and flavor was all raspberry syrup with no wheat, hops, or yeast detectable. I assume IH brews this for a certain crowd but if I was a brewer I would rather not drink with those people then brew yet another lousy over fruited beer.

DSG (6332) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2009
(11/8/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in North Wales. Aroma of artificial berries juice and saccharine. Sweet flavor with a bit of raspberries candies, medicines and soap. Medium-bodied.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 19, 2008
On tap at Newark and Wilmington brewery. Pours a light golden color with a huge raspberry presence in the nose. Mouthfeel has a carbonated bite to it. Smooth mild grassy maltiness, finishes very sweet. This one needs more hops to balance and bitter it and less of a sweet raspberry flavor.

Aurelius (4371) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Wilmington. Subtle fruit aroma with some mustardy tones. Clear, fairly light, no head. Dry, tart, lightly astringent, a little perfumy-tasting. Prominent raspberry but not overbearing. Light body, watery. Not the best I have had.

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Tap@WestChester. Aroma of fresh raspberries and bread. Smooth fruit taste that wasn’t overpowering. Nice example !

cazort (549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2008
(On tap in Lancaster) To its credit, not too sweet, but I still don’t like it. Another plus is that it is coarse tasting; the sourness has a coarse quality to it that makes it not unpleasant. But I don’t like rasberry beers and this one isn’t good enough to overcome this fact. Thumbs down.

can8ianben (1343) - Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Aroma of faint lemon and little else. Mouthfeel is little different than the light lager. Tastes of sour raspberry and vinegar.
