COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
40% white wheat and 60% malted two row create a nice subtle wheat ale. 420lbs of all natural raspberry puree is added during fermentation giving this beer a unique and playful personality. The rosy haze and sticky head embody a continuum of sour sweetness held together by a wheat back bone.

adnielsen (9659) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2015
In the can @ home, thanks to michcam for sending. Pours a touch hazy, orange appearance with an off white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy- some notes of berries, a little twang of chemicals. Moderate carbonation. Thin body. Low sweetness. Kind of stale with dull fruit notes. A little herbal. Bland and boring.

Dogbrick (8973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a murky reddish-orange color with with a thin white head that diminishes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Tart raspberry aroma with some wheat in the background. Light body with a mildly sour raspberry flavor that has notes of wheat and malt in the background. The finish is fruity with a tart raspberry aftertaste. Decent overall.

DrSilverworm (7798) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Reddish brown appearance, like what Id expect a ruby red grapefruit juice to look like. Bonus, the head was actually pink-colored! Ive never encountered that before. Aroma does not disappoint, with a full raspberry taste in the nose upfront and a medium gently fading finish. Taste is slightly sweet and sour, much like a grapefruit juice that kind of seems appropriate for the beer. Crisp palate and texture, a little thin feeling, maybe too sharply carbonated but satisfying. However interesting this beer may be, though, I couldnt imagine drinking more than one. For me, its a novelty... It goes down easy, but its not heavily drinkable due to the strong fruit flavor.

phaleslu (7107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Draft served in a pint glass at Arnolds. 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-Os. A whole pint is more than enough for my tastes.
