Bottle at home. Cloudy orange red with quickly disappearing head. Poured lively. Fruity and noticeable raspberry aroma, slightly bitter taste. Can easily replace any other summer party welcome drink. Enjoyable, but not challenging.

330ml bottle. Intense carbonation. Pours ruddy brown. Aromas of strawberry and raspberry. Very sweet, perhaps too sweet and spoilt by an almost metallic taste.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
330ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Explosive two and a half finger head with soapy off-white foam which lasts for 90 seconds; Small lacing and fizzy carbonation; Sweet and tart aroma of light raspberry, light banana, strawberry syrup, wheat, vanilla, sugar, ester, yeast, light cloves light malt and faint grass; Very tart and near-zero sweet taste of very light malt, with strong metallic, strong wheat, light strawberry, light sour fruits, soda, very light phenolic, lemon, and faint grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is very watery and nearly tasteless fruit soda. Strong tartness and metallic spikes, and only faint trace of strawberry taste. Almost no sweetness and very faint phenolic taste as if this is a soda void. Oh dear!... Hoppiness is faint grass nose, lemon and grass notes in taste; No bitterness, just wheaty sour fruit finish;
Slightly dry after taste. Very easy and tart to mouth.
Comments: Thought this might be better than Meantime Wheat. Fat chance: the raspberry was only manifested in very light aroma, the rest is just tasteless, very tart and metallic Frankinstein in the name of raspberry wheat beer. Just poor, poor, poor!

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Quite a chemical aroma. Looks a bit like Ribena. Doesn't taste as natural as some raspberry flavourings. A bit disappointing for a meantime product.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy, slightly reddish golden in color. Not much head. Some sour fruity notes in the nose. Flavor is sour and yeasty. I don’t pick up much of the raspberry in this.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy orange, no head. Aroma is faintly sour; not much raspberry. The palatte is rather like soda; it’s a bit overcarbonated. Taste is mostly sour, with only a hint of wheat, and very little to pick it out as raspberry, except at the very end where it turns a bit more fruity. Rather disappointing.
