COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This exciting brew combines the mild, tart flavors of a wheat beer with the essence of real raspberries. The raspberry flavor is not overpowering. It has a wonderful berry aroma, and is a favorite even among those who claim to "not like beer".

I’m trying to drink all of the Liberty brews, the raspberry wheat is one of my favorite. A nice berry aroma, with a subtle berry taste but not too overwhelming which is what I liked.

At MB brewpub. Immediate raspberry aroma But the taste is only slightly berry and more wheat flavor. A small glass is just right but a 20 oz glass would be too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a hazy pinkish orange color with a smallish off-white head on it. Nose is pretty filled with raspberry, as you’d expect. Taste wasn’t too fruity, but ended up being slightly sweet. OK, but nothing special.

This poured a somewhat cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was yeasty, light citrus and raspberry notes too. Flavor was mainly wheaty, with light notes of raspberry but not overpowering. Interesting and better than I was expecting

Great Beer. I found this at a local brewery near my college. Don’t let the name fool you, it doesn’t taste fruity. If it’s on tap when you stop by you will not be disappointed.

Draught. Why do I do this to myself? Pours a cloudy straw color, thankfully not pink, with good head retention. The aroma is of crackers, grains, light raspberry. Taking a sip reveals much of the same with a "dirty" finish. Thankfully, the raspberry is not overdone. That said, this is still not a favorite of mine. It’s a combination of an American wheat and raspberry which, in my book, is tantamount to a combination of a root canal on Tax Day.

On tap at Liberty... brewed under the alias of "Very Jerry Wheat". Pours reddish-amber and clear, with a diminished head and the slightest ring lace of suds follows the brew down the glass. There are some fruit notes (nondescript, but we’ll say raspberry), and nothing to write home about. As the beer warms, wheat does come through more prominently, though. Tart citrus accompanies light wheat notes, with an unfortunate plastic finish. This seems to be the result of hopping. The mouthfeel is clean and crisp, cutting heavy meal flavors on the palate. By itself, however, it’s not a standalone standout.

Tap. Fruity and wheaty flavor. Light golden color. Very faint raspberry finish. Not bad. If you are a fan of lighter tasting beers this will be right up your alley.

Yea, I could really smell them raspberries. The light raspberry flavor was good too. I liked it.

Hazy straw with pinkish tones, thin white head. Nose had very weak notes of raspberry, wheat, and citrus. Flavor was light tangy wheat and raspberry, with just a faint hint of hops in the background. Light bodied, soft carbonation, light fruity finish. I suppose if you were very hot and need to chug something that was a notch up from water....
