Tasted from draft at brewery. Color is a cloudy yellow with faint pink hue. White head. Aroma is definite raspberry. Pretty good aroma. I’ll admit this beer tasted better than I thought it would. Doesn’t taste like fake artificial raspberry. Does have a strong raspberry taste like expected. Sweet fruit taste with a tart finish. The thing I don’t like is a slight skunky finish I taste. Light bodied overall. Not bad for a fruit ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at the brewpub on 9/20/13. Clear yellow in color with a thick white head. Aroma consisting of raspberry jam, pale malt and wheat. Raspberry flavor giving way to creamy wheat before a crisp finish.

On tap at during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Courtside Pizza. More hazy, paler white / golden color. Minimal white head. Good ropes of lace. Wow. Really interesting, natural tasting raspberry wheat flavor to it, light breadiness. Light to medium body. Smooth, lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Light to moderate sweet taste, light tangy tart. Light biscuity pie crust type flavor. I like it. Great razz wheat ale.

Gold pour with a light pinkish hue. Aroma is cereal, light juicy fruit gum and raspberry . Flavor follows suite. Decent

Clear straw color with no head or lace, very still. Wheat and raspberry in the taste says it all - solid from start to finish with no growth, change, or hop presence. In spite of that, quite drinkable as a summer ade.

Draft. Poured cloudy reddish amber color with a minimal fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate raspberry wheat aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet raspberry flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable fruit beer.

On tap at the MBC. At first glance, this beer appears to be some light beer that only an unadventurous redneck would even bother with, but upon further inspection, it is plain that this beer is meant for a person that likes raspberry...a lot. Luckily, I am one of those people. This beer reminds me a great deal of a dry raspberry wine but with notes of wheat beer. All in all, not a beer to drink several of, but definitely one suited for a pint glass or maybe even a snifter.

July 17-19, 2008: Marietta Raspberry Wheat is hazy and has a deep golden color. The aroma has some red raspberry. The flavor is well-balanced between wheat malt and fresh raspberry. It has an average palate, but is pretty good overall.

Draught sample at Skipper’s Bar & Grille in Athens, Ohio during Ohio Brew Week 2008. Rating #5 for this beer.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear orange color with a compact off-white head that diminishes to nothing quickly. Thin top ring of lacing on the glass with spots underneath. Light raspberry aroma with notes of malt. Light body with a raspberry and wheat character and touches of malt underneath. The finish is short and fruity. Overall it is not worth coming back to this beer for any reason.

A decent representation. Good aroma of honey, bananas, raspberry and gumballs, but the appearance was murky and watery. Not cloudy in a yummy wheat kind of way. Flavor was weak but ok. Reminded me of weak raspberry iced tea. Won’t keepme away from my new hometown brewery though.. :)
