COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of pale malt and wheat malt are the base for this light-bodied, thirst-quenching brew. Whole raspberries are added to the kettle at the end of the boil to give this beer a delicate reddish color and a fruity aroma.

On tap at the Monroeville location. The bartender said that 42 pounds of raspberries were added to produce a dangerously drinkable and scrumptious fruity delight! Very sweet delicious aroma. Pinkish brown color with very little head, slightly hazy. Sweet, but not syrupy sweet. Just the right amount of fruitiness for a fruit beer. Has some mild building bitterness that builds during the session that detracts from the fruit. Mild creamy carbonation. Mild to medium processed bitterness manifests itself on the palate during the finish.

Nice heavy unfiltered appearance with a strawberry amber tint. I was hot to try this wheat beer after the server told me it was only lightly fruited. Well, the raspbery was too strong and disappointed. However, each sip managed to finish with a hefeweizen aftertaste, despite the strong raspbery start to each sip. If only these fruit beer would back off a tad, they might get it right.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2006 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer pours a moderately dark red-brown color with a small white head. There is a light sour fruity aroma. The flavor is malty and nutty with a vague syrupy fruit flavor. The fruit flavor is not distinctly raspberry but is nice none the less. A bit malty and nutty on the finish.
