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.

Aurelius (4031) - 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.

Tap@WestChester. Aroma of fresh raspberries and bread. Smooth fruit taste that wasn’t overpowering. Nice example !

cazort (513) - 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.

Aroma of faint lemon and little else. Mouthfeel is little different than the light lager. Tastes of sour raspberry and vinegar.

bubbleflubber (1746) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2008
On tap at the Lancaster brewery, under the moniker "Dirty Weisse". The pour is clear straw with a diminished ring, leaving spotty lace. Huge framboise aroma, which is what the wheat beer is a) either mixed/cut with, or b) brewed with, depending upon the batch (per the brewer). Natural raspberry upfront on the tongue, not cloying by any means, almost tart. Nice integration of wheat and yeasty notes. Light carbonation levels lend a soft mouthfeel to the pull. Not a terrible job on this one.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Draft: Poured a light orange colore with not much head. The aroma was of raspberries and a bit of malt. The flavor slightly unbalance with the aftertaste not being of raspberries but of tart malt. Overall, was not a fan of this one.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2008
Tap at Lancaster location. Light pinky colour with a light haziness. Light wheaty spice behind the raspberry character. A fairly doughy maltiness as well. It’s a pretty good fruit beer, really.

GMCC2181 (1498) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 26, 2008
On tap at the Newark location: This was a simple beer. Light and refreshing. There was a hint of raspberry on the nose. And a small amount of raspberries in the actual flavor. Very light and easy to drink. Over all an ok beer.
