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.

reddish-pink color, not much head, slightly lacy. the aroma of raspberries leaps out of the glass at you. the flavor is tartly raspberry. medium bodied, sweet finish. if you like raspberries, you might like this one. i don’t like raspberries. sampled at a LoSBD tasting. i think rayboy01 provided the sample.

On tap @ brewpub...Transparent pinkish complexion with next to no head on this glass. Aroma is raspberry jam. Flavor is fresh raspberries, both tart and sweet tasting, but very subdued and watered down. No other flavors detected here. Really too light tasting for me, even for the style.

Bottle (Mount Pleasant Railyard Raspberry Wheat). Pours a reddish copper with a massive pinkish off-white head. Aromas are weak... maybe a touch of wheat and a touch of raspberry, but not much there at first. As it sits for a couple of minutes a bit of a more aggressive raspberry tartness begins to assert itself. Flavor is dominated by a tart raspberry presence that gives a bit of the stage to a light wheat maltiness. Finish is pure raspberry in all its tart goodness. I find the raspberry presence to be pretty convincing (rather than artificial) and this is the best of the Mount Pleasant (Mountain Town) stuff I’ve sampled.

6oz sample at MTS - Aroma of sticky raspberries, wheat and brown sugar. Pours transparent pink-brown with a small head and decent lacing. Flavor is natural raspberry, old wheat and caramel malt. Palate is tart and tasty. Not bad for what it is. I find it interesting that the others raters say it tastes "artificial". I found it comparable to Founders Rübæus.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2008
On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. The amount of berries per batch is not necessarily correlated with quality, as this beer supports. An oddly sweet wheat beer with molded hay and fermented fruits and even a hint of wet socks thrown in for good measure. Not offensive, but cloying and flawed.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2006
Pours and orange/pink with no head. Flat carbontation throughout. The nose is all fruit - no balance at all. The body is all fruit as well with some slight caramel balance but not much. The raspberries come off artificial tasting. Blah.

Not one I would drink all the time but my wife thought it was the bomb. Real raspberries make this beer unique from others I’ve had. Nice touch to details

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2003
Powerful, sweetish odor of razbries and bubblegum, which worried me, but the fruity tatse turns out to be protean - elusive and sippery, but very real and not as gaggingly artificail as the aroma suggests.
