3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color is almost like ruby grapefruit juice. Has a nice tart/sweet taste. Different. A good hot weather beer

The nose is the star attraction of this brew--one can actually tell there is raspberry in this stuff...Appearance is enhanced by pink tones from the fruit--otherwise cloudy...Body and flavor are predictably light but quite pleasant---this is a brew for refreshment, afterall...One pint of this is enough for one session, however...I like it as a change-of-pace starter.

Looks like grapefruit, cloudy pink, plenty of nose, crispy, berries/citrus in the light body, nice effervescence, semi-dry.

Not bad, but nothing really great. The fruit flavoring is pretty evident, and the alcohol is nonexistent. I’d much rather have a Hammerhead.

Very light, not much alcohol. Fruity too. Again, beer from McMenamins is too carbonated.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very light beer with a pink lemonade appearance and a bottled-water raspberry flavor. Rerating this beer, I give it higher marks than previously--though it is still not one of the brewery’s better selections.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Red colour, impressive berry nose and palate. Light, easy-drinking. The use of fresh fruit (not extract) is quite noticeable, and makes this a rare fruit beer worth drinking.
