3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 11-11-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazy orange amber color with a two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention fading to give a lighter level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is of sweet berries and a little bit of biscuit. The fruit is heaviest of a raspberry aroma with some lighter notes of blueberry and strawberry. Sweet and fruity.
Taste – The taste starts out of a wheaty and bready flavor mixed with some lighter berry sweetness. The sweetness gets stronger more towards the middle of the taste with the raspberry being he strongest. In the end a yeasty flavor joins the sweet and wheat and leave a lightly sweetened berry flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation that is average to above average. The lighter body is nice for the berry and wheat flavors of the beer with the carbonation level making it quite drinkable.
Overall – A refreshing berry brew. Very easy drinking, not too sweet and rather authentic fruit tasting. Not too bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Berry aroma with a huge fizzy foamy head. Tart, fruit taking over. Hints of wheat and yeast underneath. Fruit flavors seem very natural.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a light gold with a HUGE, foamy head. The berry notes taste kind of funky and not very good. Just a so-so beer.

I am typically not a fruit beer guy, but this one was delicious! The berry flavor is so fresh and blended perfectly with the hops and malts. Yum!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at a wedding. Pours a dark reddish hue, clear, with a thin tan head. The aroma is mostly sweet berries and some light grain. Quite a surprising flavor with tart fruit alongside more common light berries and earthy malts. Not sure what to make of this, it comes in between a Berliner and a light Hefe with fruit, very good. Lots of wheat.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Bottle. Refreshing summer berry brew. Raspberry scent with light grain. Cloudy gold pour with a white ring and very little head. Light body with a fizzy texture. Sweet berry taste then a tart flavor kind of like kool aid at times.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle poured into glass. I was pretty jazzed when I saw this on the shelf at my local beer store. Had hopes that it might be somewhat sour and/or tart. However it fell short. The raspberries are very alive and well but no sourness.

I know from first-hand sources that the berries are fresh ---- the pulp clogged the bottling filter lines the first few runs according to my source. Crisp and refreshing, even under the gray skies of Pittsburgh.

Hey! I expected ratings for this to be much higher. This is a tasty little weissbier, berried - but not buried - and sweet. Ain’t I funny. Almost no head, the color of fruit punch, plenty of wheaty residual goodness. It’s very enticing to look at. I like it!
