This is our Landing Light with an all-natural raspberry flavor added. Refreshing, subtle raspberry flavor.

Slight pinkish hew. Very thin and somewhat watery. Raspberry isn’t overpowering, actually somewhat subtle. Ketch a hint of wheat. Smooth, but not my cup of tea.... or in this case glass of beer.

On tap at McCoys in KC. Listed as Redlight Raspberry on the menu, but I see no one’s rated this in 2 years...oh well. It actually tasted and smelled more like a raspberry wheat, so hopefully its actually not the Raspberry Wheat. Poured a hazy dirty yellow wheat looking body with a thin white head that left quickly and ended up looking pretty watery. Aroma of wheat and raspberry. Sweet soda pop almost. Flavor was similar. Very light and carbonated with a sugary, artificial raspberry taste and a slightly wheat malted backing. Boring, sugary finish with no lingering taste. Overall, probably the worst beer I’ve tried at this brewpup so far. Worse than their ginger shandy, which didn’t even taste like a beer.

On tap at the brewpub. I could not even finish the sample. The hazy pink body was topped with a white head. The aroma was lots of raspberries and a little floral. The taste has some flat, bad fruity 7 Up. There is also some bad grapefruit juice. Another McCoy’s beer with a flat and lifeless body.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2008 On tap at the brewpub (KC). This was brought out as a Raspberry Wheat, but I had trouble picking up on the wheat. This one tasted like a Blackcherry soda to me, with artificial Raspberry sweetener added. Not really my type of brew.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Artificial berry aroma, thin and fizzy with a bit too much carbonation. Light, with a syrupy bit of fruity sweetness, and a bit of slightly toasted cereal malt in the finish. Bland and undrinkable. Why?

Hazy Yellow/Peach Coloring with No Head. Subtle Razz Aroma... Thin Mouthfeel..Light, somewhat Potent Razz Taste..Probably From Using ’Flavoring’ ..Wheat Comes up in Aftertaste...Unbalanced but Still Light and Drinkable.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Sampled on draft at McCoys. Pours cloudy peach in color with little head or lacing (just like it’s base beer, Landing Light, but colored). Aroma is pretty clean, with only notes of berries. The flavor is quite one-dimensional: raspberry syrup. I dislike fruit beers that have that syrup character. Light-bodied and light to medium carbonation. Uninteresting.

badgerben (4889) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2006
St. Louis Park, MN location. Slightly hazy yellow color with a thin head. Aroma is a little reminiscent of raspberry scented Lysol, but not too bad. Very light on the raspberry in the taste with not much else except a pinch of wheat. Unoffensive.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 I didn’t like this one. I t was a raspbery soda water with minimal beer flavors. Havent had their wheat maybe thats why its so mild is cuz the wheat is. The coloring was interesting kind of pinkish purpulish with some fizz going on. There is no real flavor to speak of; give me some more of something.

Very light and clear with a straw coloroing. Raspberry extract character, syrupy sweet, a lip-smacker. I’m tired of this style. This is just OK.
