Pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of sweet raspberryies. Flavor was much the same with a clean and crisp finish.

On tap at New Wales. Gold, with a white head. Sweet raspberry aroma. Raspberry flavor, but much drier than than the aroma leads you to believe. Long raspberry finish.

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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at the West Chester location, July 2006. A yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma has very powerful notes of raspberries and is very sweet - I find the raspberry note a bit artificial. The flavor is sweet with a bit weird, but very powerful raspberry note, on a sligtly acidic wheaty back ground. The end is dry wheaty with an artificial note of raspberries lingering.

Pretty good, but had the sweet, artificial tasting raspberry thing going. I think I like my wheat beers without fruit, or at least a much subtler flavor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I think this was my favorite from the sampler, I don’t know if it was because it was freakishly warm in the bar or what but I enjoyed it. It pours gold and has a wonderful sweet raspberry aroma. The flavor is a clean and crisp wheat with a touch of berry at the end. It was nice and smooth and really hit the spot.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a very light golden color with small head. Aroma was stright up raspberries overwelming. Flavor was much much the same. Clearly for the summertime but still not done very well.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blondish, light head, with a bronze-pink hue. Sweet, sugary raspberry aroma translating to a drinkable, but parching raspberry flavor. Lacking balance.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 golden color with definate raspberry & floral aromas. Wheat and raspberry flavors well balanced. somewhat thin overall. would like to try it in the hot weather.

Very tasty. Essentially, at the Iron HIll in West Chester, PA, it’s a chick beer. But a delicious one. The rasberry is strong and very distinct, but the beer is quite tasty and not too sugary.
