hazy yellow, wispy white head,
sweet malt aroma with a pronounced raspberry tartness,
rich sweet honey malt flavor provides a good foundation for a lot of raspberry flavor, tartness from the raspberry balances the honey sweetness, light bitter finish

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
May 2005 - The waittress how served this to me (sampler size) lied. She said, the raspberry has a stronger smell than it does taste. It didn’t. I couldn’t taste much else besides the raspberry and my friend with me said it tasted like overflavored cough syrup. I don’t really like "flavored" beers, much the same as I don’t like flavored coffee. It seems like any company that advertises a flavor in the name of a product feels the need to way overdo that flavor...whether it be beer, coffee, spaghetti sauce, etc. TOO MUCH RASPBERRY.

Hazy yellow. Aroma of raspberries and raspberry candy. Taste is raspberry candy, wheat and a bit of lemon. Light body. A good Summer cooler.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Newark-Cloudy yellow color w/a slight white head. Definite raspberry aroma. Their discription is perfect, tastes like a wheat beer w/a raspberry flavor. Natural flavors which blend well, has some spice to it. Wasn’t sure @ this one, but ended up enjoying it. Nice change of pace; I wouldn’t drink it all the time.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy yellow with hint of orange. White soapy head with an intense raspberry aroma. Tastes of yeast, wheat, with hints of raspberry on the back side. Raspberry is more pronounced if the beer is held on yor tongue for an extra second.

aroma of raspberries, taste is initially wheaty, but the reasperries soon take over. It was a god blend, but I don’t think raspberries and beer seem to mix well.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Better than most fruit-wheat combos. Aroma is ok and taste/finish are fairly satisfying. Not a top pick by any means, but it doesn’t have that artificial taste common in the style.
