Over 55 pounds of hand-macerated, fresh, whole raspberries are used in every batch. Taste the original!

Not bad for a fruit beer, key words being for a fruit beer. Awfully sweet. Someone told me this was good mixed with their terminator stout, but why ruin a perfectly good terminator stout?

Light honey colored, cloudy, looks like a weiss beer. Aroma is raspberry, sweet, hints of yeast. Flavor is pretty sweet. Nice summer beer, one that a think alot of none beer drinkers would enjoy.

A nice fruit beer. Heaps of raspberries. Clean and refreshing. Could guzzle it like water. Definitely not your typical beer, but a nice change of pace nonetheless.

A very weak and watery beer...slightly fruit is all that I got out of it. The corn flake finish sucked balls. This is a chick beer.

Light raspberry color. Light bodied wheat ale, infused with a raspberry flavor. Fruit flavor is mild and subtle, very slightly sweet. Malts are mild and slightly hoppy. Interesting taste. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
