COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp, dry, and kind of pink. Sixty pounds of flash frozen Oregon raspberries lend a tartness that pleases the palate and quenches thirst in a fine fashion.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a reddish gold with a pink-hued head. Fresh raspberry aroma. Strong tartness coupled with the raspberry fruitiness to the taste. Fairly quick finish, but a medium mouthfeel. Not my favorite style, but I still enjoyed it.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - JUL 8, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. I usually dont like fruit beers, but I was in need of a change and I actually really enjoyed this brew. It had just the proper amount of sweet and tart flavors that really complemented each other and made this a nice brew to sit back and drink. Wouldnt buy a keg of it, but as a single glass it was quite nice.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Tart raspberry nose, with some lovely fruit flavors. LIke the fact that this is made with real fruit and it really comes across on the palate. Wheaty cereal malts with some very light citrus notes and raspberry fruit. Light and refreshing.

On tap at Mountain Sun. I think that these types of beers (fruit beers) are just great for summer weather. This one was just pretty tasty, good fruit flavors mixed with a wheat back bone.

Brouwerij (918) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2013
On tap at Mtn Sun. Pours a slightly hazy pink with very light pink head. Aroma is mild raspberry, flavor is slightly more intense raspberry, strong berry finish, some sweetness and wheat. Mild wheat character, seems a bit one dimensional, but that’s how fruit beer often is. Moderate carbonation, light body, drinkable. Better than I recall but still leaves something to be desired. A mild, light fruit beer.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2005
Tasted in Boulder at the Mountain Sun brewpub. Aroma of honey, fruit and candy floss. Cloudy pink / reddish hue. Thin white head. Flavour has a tea like pungentness, grassy, grainy palate with a slightly fruit finish.

hazy dull red with a small off-white head. has the same dry, tart, pulpy fruit character as the blackberry wheat (which I’m remembering from two years ago), but also the same yeastiness. it’s a wheat beer base to yeast is to be expected, but in this case it provides a cherry chewable vitamin-C tablet flavor, it’s chalky and a bit mucky and musty and simple.
