n 1985, McMenamins became the first brewery in the U.S.A. to legally use fruit in the creation of ales.

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

Malts: Pale Malt
Hops: Chinook
Fruit: Whole Raspberries

This is my favorite McMenamins beer. Its fruity and refreshing. Its great for summer drinking, watching live music, soaking in a McMenamins tub or otherwise running around one of their adult playgrounds.

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.

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 good raspberry flavor to this one. Very light, pinkish in color -- great warm day brew.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Light pink, strawberries and wheat, semi-tart flavor, some biting yeast flavors. Peppy, better than the average fruity beer... the tartness being the main reason.

Cloudy yellowish with slight red hue. Wheaty aroma with raspberry essence. Flavor is more of the same. Raspberries taste natural. Tart and wheaty. A nice fruit beer
