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.

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

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.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2008
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 RŁbśus.

MrBunn (2485) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2009
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 Iíve sampled.

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.

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.

patrick767 (3586) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2012
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.

Ibrew2or3 (7050) - 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.

Silphium (3178) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2008
On tap at Crunchyís, 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.

RSRIZZO (1869) - 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.
