COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth wheat, spiked with raspberry. Not as sweet as most of the other flavored beers on the market - a refreshing change.

This buttery blondie begins with a cold, crisp refreshment that is sweet but zippy soon turning to a full, rich and nutty thirst quencher that lingers in an even nuttier finish. It’s full-bodied without being a fruity ass and the combination of sweet to sinfully soothing is my newest love. Give this baby a try if you’re looking for a light but defined brew that is palatably pleasant. Cheers!

Keg at the brewpub, Beaverton, 11/11/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white swirl. Nose is sweet berries, sugary, melon, grape juice, floral notes. Taste comprises sweet green berries, raspberry syrup, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet licks in the close. Meh - fruit beer.

On tap at OMP. Pours a mostly clear yellow color with a medium white head. A big sugary nose. Hmm. Taste is artificial sweetness, odd berries. Base light malt. Not good.

Draught. Poured pale gold with thin white head. Aroma of bread and raspberry. Raspberry flavour with some a bit of yeastiness. Lingering sweet finish. But not sicky sweet

I am pretty sure only a raspberry extract is used, lending the beer a sweet raspberry taste but in a faux way. A drinkable fruit beer but the wrong kind of sugar.

{Tap - Old Market Pub] Thjis was an off golden yellow with a slight red to it color with a decent head. The aroma you can smell the fruit and the flavor was awesome. This was a great fruit beer. How do they do it maae the fruit come out?

This was a really nicely done fruit beer. The fruit really stands out on its own, with a great raspberry flavor that does not taste overly artificial but has a genuine fruit flavor. The malt factor is standalone as well, with a bit more boldness than I expected. Somehow this all comes together and manages to be balanced.
