COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style wheat mixed with 100% fresh raspberry juice

Stand back. This is a beer brewed with raspberries, not a raspberry beer. The real raspberry juice we use adds something special to this wheat ale rather than taking something away. It can be, and is, enjoyed by all types of beer drinkers. It especially pairs well with fruit salads or just about any type of dessert. Or, consider it a dessert all on its own; who doesnít enjoy beer for dessert? And, just because this beer has fruit, donít think it is some powder-puff beer. Even the most rugged mountain man will enjoy this one.

050 13 526 ... I want to assume that means this was bottled the 50th day of 2013. Poured about three months later into a shaker pint on May 17th. Appearance: The label is much like Mt. Pleasantís other brews -- a train, with a colored background. This one is purple/pink, making it somewhat eye catching. The beer pours with a two finger head that doesnít last two long. The color is a super hazy purple and brownish hue. Not much lacing. Smell: Heavy raspberry with a dribble of beer ... definitely heavy on the raspberry, and not much else. The wheat and some malt is also traceable. Taste: Well, I expect anybody that dislikes fruit beers to hate this one, as itís definitely raspberry forward. Itís super easy drinking and has a significant raspberry profile, but I donít find that itís too much. I was a bit iffy on the first sip, but I got into it. Thereís a tart character on the taste buds as well, which makes this super thirst quenching on a hot day. The after taste has a bit of wheat flavor to let you know that this is a beer. The feel is like a mildly carbonated pop, and is easy to slam if youíre super thirsty. Look, it is what it is ... itís a fruit beer, and it doesnít try to be anything else. A LOT of raspberry, minimal bitterness, a solid sweetness and tartness... this beer would be absolutely fantastic for somebody that isnít a fan of beer and/or craft beer. This isnít a great beer, but itís solid enough for the style. By the end of a bottle it becomes a bit much with the amount of sourness and sweetness, but thatís just enough for me... I couldnít have much more. Another good beer from Mt. Pleasant.

Golden color brew with a white head. Not a very good aroma, makes me think of a smell you would find in a hospital. A mild raspberry flavor that somehow makes the beer taste awful. Leaves a bad aftertaste.

Wheat, wheat, and more wheat. Raspberry is there, but it might as well not be. The wheat is over the top on this thing.

tap. Amber with small head. It may come as a shock, but this tastes like a generic wheat beer with mild raspberry.

fattybladdy (533) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2013
12oz bottle, pours a murky amber with an insane amount of bright white head. Took several minutes for this to settle to a point I could even think about beginning to drink it. Once settled though, not a bad looking beer. Not much in the way of aroma, want to say I pick up some berry, but it is faint. Wheaty taste with raspberry flavoring, reminds me of a friends home-brew. As far as raspberry beers go, it doesnít stack up to Rubaeus, but certainly you could do worse on a hot day.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2013
12oz bottle courtesy of Headbanger. Color is a hazy amber with good carbonation and a big fluffy head. Aroma is bigger on the wheat then the berries. It has a lighter medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is light raspberry, a touch of spice and wheat. After taste has a slight bitterness and the berry comes out a little more. Overall its ok, nice to drink but not one of the better best raspberries Iíve had.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 31, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light orange colored body. The aroma was musty and fruity. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The strange flavor contained notes of raspberry. A horrible one that I would rather not drink again.

12oz bottle 11/28/12- 44į in Flute-Pours a clear pinkish amer with a big white head. Aroma of raspberry and sweetness. Taste of the same with some slight tartness. This light bodied brew was not too bad but not sure if it was old or infected .

bottle from the brewery - Pours light hazy pink-orange with a small off white head. The aroma is clearly of raspberries. The flavor is sweet with prominent raspberries along with wheat and yeast evident. Itís light bodied and fairly refreshing, but thereís not much character to be had here. Okay.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle purchased at Sicilianoís Market in Grand Rapids, MI in December, 2011. Pours a small semi-fizzy white head that was mostly lasting. One ring of lacing, hazy body, fizzy, fast-rising carbonation, and an orange hue. The aroma is sweet, tart and raspberries. The flavor was sweet, tart, tangy, sour, acidic, artificial raspberries, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is tingly and this is a light-medium bodied Fruit beer. Overall, it was over-the-top tart and acidic and came very, very close to being a drain pour.
