Draft: Reddish pink pour with a small white head. Mild aroma of fruits and sweetness. Taste is fruity with mostly raspberries up front, some wheatiness as well. Very light and easy to drink. A good, light fruit beer.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JAN 17, 2009
22oz bottle from my buddy Josh. Pale yellow with a pink hue. Faint raspberry aroma, almost sour tasting. Taste is raspberries, slight sweetness, different from the aroma. Easy drinking, not a big favorite.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2006 Pours bright reddish color, slightly hazy, with a small white head. Aroma was filled with what i thought was strawberry then latter corrected to raspberry, very fruity. Taste was very fruity with the sweet raspberry taste and very little hop bitterness. Very smooth and dry beer with decent lacing and the taste stays for a while.

One of my favorites from the lineup, smooth, light and drinkable. Nice full body, similar to German Hefe , slick and smooth. Sweet juice essence makes it refreshing.

Not terrible, but refreshing, a good spring time beer. At least it is balanced and you can taste the fruit, and it is really showcased in this one. Just a little crisp and tart in the finish.

pivo (2629) - GERMANY - JAN 19, 2009
Apricot nose, hazy khaki color. Sweet malt and raspberry taste, no bitter to counter the sweetness. Sopay mouthfeel. Actually OK an OK beer for what is intended but I don’t like what was intenden.

Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Clear pink/amber color. Very light carbonation and light bodied. Raspberry nose. Starts sweet, clean raspberry flavor, some tartness at finish, good summer beer. $4.25 for a 22oz bottle from the brewery in Troutdale, Or.
