COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each batch of this light, fruity ale is made with 84 lbs. of raspberries puree. It has a brilliant pinkish tint and a hint of natural raspberry tartness. Introduced in the Spring of '94, it was so popular that we now brew it year 'round.

Surprisingly good raspberry wheat beer. It’s not overpowering or too sweet which is a plus.

nice fruity aroma. light-medium orange body with a tiny bit of lace. sour raspberries, malt and floral flavors with a fruity, clean finish. it may sound odd, but this one is also pretty good mixed as a half-en-half with their stout. 4.8%abv

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Draft at Destin location. Clear copper color in the glass with a white head that left light lacing. Big aroma of raspberries and some wheat in the background. The flavor was of wheat, bread, a mild amount of raspberry. Medium body and a bready aftertaste.

On tap at Mcguires. Aroma is pure raspberry and Triscuits. This one had a nice garnet hue almost, in the light. Flavor was raspberry with bitter wheat. Not bad.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - MAY 8, 2008
This was a light and refreshing beer. There was light carbonation and a distinct raspberry flavor that lingers on the tongue. Nice mellow beer. This is not usually what you would go to an Irish pub for, but I tried a sampler on my last visit.

SHIG (3612) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Draft: Poured a golden color with a white head. Aroma was subtle raspberry and grain. Taste was nice raspberry with light bitter wheat to keep it balanced.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - AUG 20, 2005
On tap at the brewpub: poured light orange/pink with a small white head. Moderate raspberry aroma. Flavor is raspberry of course but mildly so. Slight sourness present also. A nice beer that’s well made and goes down smooth.

markwise (4516) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2012
On draft at McGuire’s. Pours a hazy pink with a white head. Nose is light wheat, raspberry puree, and some light tartness. Flavor is similar with light berries and wheat. As for fruited wheats, this one will do fine. Light in body and ok overall.

SpockTheater (49) - Louisiana, USA - NOV 29, 2002
This one is a bit unique. Has that tart taste from the rasberry, but the fuity flavor really overpowers the wheat. Not very balanced.
