2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sampler at Columbus Brewing Restaurant. Hazy pink color. Very little head. Definite raspberry aroma; grass; bready notes. Raspberry hits you up front; very fruity; slight yeasty flavors; bread; muted hop notes. Very effervescent and lively on the palate. Overall, this is an okay beer. Raspberry is very noticeable. I’d rather it not be so pronounced. Refreshing, but....not my cup of tea (or beer).

Draft at the Trolley Stop in Dayton. Pours opaque grapefruit red with a fizzy white head. Tastes like tart raspberry and grapefruit with some dry wheat, grains, grassy. Very light sweetness. Smells of light raspberry, dry champagne, and soda.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft - razz = raspberry: I’m a moron. Nose is raspberry. Sip adds wheat for sure almost banana notes. Boozy for 4.5% but it could be the carbonation. A little syrupy. Sweet with cardboard aftertaste. I’m usually a sucker for fruity beers but this...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft served in a pint glass at Arnold’s. Pours a hazy pink-tinted peach color with a minimal white ring for a head. Aroma of raspberries, wheat, sugary cereal, and candy. The flavor is the same, for the most part, but maybe with a little dry straw. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a wheaty mouthfeel that starts sweet and finishes very dry. I probably would appreciate this more in a taster at Jackie-O’s. A whole pint is more than enough for my tastes.

Had a glass as part of a sampler at Reverend in BG. Not my thing, kinda fat and not refreshing.

Tasted from draft at brewery. Pours a cloudy pink with pinkish head. Barely any lacing. Aroma is raspberries and wheat. Taste is pretty tart. Definitely some raspberries. Funky aftertaste I'm not too keen on. Not my favorite fruit beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Jackie O's.
Pinkish copper pour with a light white head.
Raspberry nose. Not much else going on.
Medium mouthfeel decent carbonation.
Wheaty with a raspberry taste that is nicely done.
Not my favorite, but well balanced. I think they do a better job with their hoppy beers, at least from what I was able to sample this trip.
