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 doesn’t enjoy beer for dessert? And, just because this beer has fruit, don’t think it is some powder-puff beer. Even the most rugged mountain man will enjoy this one.

MBGSF 2011. Poured hazy reddish amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate tart raspberry fruit aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium tart raspberry flavor with a medium sweet fruit finish of moderate duration. Refreshing soft fruit beer.

burg326 (3880) - Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2011
From a 12 oz bottle to a pint glass. Pours a cloudy copper hue that has a slight smell of raspberries. Head stayed awhile in the glass, nothing too special.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2011
12oz bottle pours hazy copper with semi loose tan head. The aroma is tart hay notes, raspberry, berry like tartness and sweet berry juice. The taste is similar with some tartness moving into explosive levels of carbonation blasting off bits and pieces of berry essence everywhere including tart tannins, un-ripe bits and sweet juicy shrapnel.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Draft. Aroma has notes of metal hops, flowers, bread and raspberries. Medium amber hue with an average off white head that left great lace. Flavor is medium sweet and heavy bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with average carbonation. An OK brew but the flavor is way off.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Clear lifeless light amber with next to no head. Very mild aroma of raspberry and wheat. Taste of green peas, sweet malt and light wheat. Overly sweet, almost artificial with an astringent finish.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle. Reddish amber body with an off white head, fully diminishing. Straightforward aroma of raspberry juice and sugar. Slight hint of toasted grain, but hard to tell over the raspberry smell. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Artificial raspberry and sweetener taste. If there is any saving grace, it is the slight tartness in the finish. But there is not enough saving grace to save it from being poured down the drain.

17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Beer #3 of my fruit beer tasting. 12oz bottle. Pours pretty much the same as the Dark Horse Raspberry I just opened, a murky pink amber with a smaller white froth. Smells like sawdust, pesticide, cat urine. Flavor follows, pungent, stingy, after the initial shock, some sweet stale raspberry flavor emerges, just an odd flavor, lime jello-ish, raspberry-wheaty aftertaste. Some alcohol even present... now how the hell do you get that in a low abv fruit beer... Lumpy carbonation, not syrupy, medium/light bodied, odd. Fairly gross.

valpoaj (635) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Pours a tepid pink color with a large, effervescent white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, but muted, and doesn’t really come through. Flavor is raspberry, but would tend to agree with many other folks that it has a fake, stale flavor in here (and I like fruit beers more than the average person around here). A bit of yeast and slightly tart. Palate was a bit on the weak side...though it did go down quickly and had some refreshing qualities on a hot summer day.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Bottle from Sicilianos, Grand Rapids, MI. Cloudy golden color with pinkish tint with medium, large bubbled, white head. Aroma is fruity, dry, raspberries, pretty light. Flavor is off-dry raspberries, wheat, slight tartness, some spice, light graininess. Medium to light, active carbonation. Not the worse fruit beer in the world, but not the best either.

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Sampled at a The LoSBD meeting, thanks (?!?) to RAYBOY01: The "?!?" is due to my initial notes being "Horrible Crap!" It has a pinkish body without much of a head. It has a strong artificial fruit aroma like those godzaweful hard candies that my late father used to enjoy. (I didn’t.) The flavor is much the same, raspberry candy with a slight tartness.
