COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Real raspberries added after the fermentation give this beer its distinctive nose and colour, while leaving it refreshingly dry and not too tart.

From the bottle. Pours a little cloudy with reddish amber color. Nice foamy head and lacing. Smell is sour, grass and little fruity. Taste is a little sweet forward with more tartness on the finish. Raspberry taste is faint but makes the wheat beer a limitless sweeter and fruitier. Nice change but not special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Auburn colour and fluffy ivory head. Cloudy. An enticing hint of refreshing sourness from the raspberry with goes nicely with the sweet wheat taste. I really like this beer.

Medium red colour with foamy slightly pink head and some lacing. Sweet raspberry aroma, but kind of faint and touch metallic. Taste is a nice sweet raspberry, a little tart, tastes like real raspberries not artificial. Nothing spectacular, but refreshing and tasting. Nice beer that I’d have again.

ljthiessen (391) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle. A nice blood-orange colour with a fluffy, slightly pink head. Light raspberry and wheat aroma, nothing special. Tastes like real raspberries, which is impressive, but the wheat beer behind it isn't great. Good, but not great - doesn't quite come together.

Strong berry nose. Clear, thin entry that rounds off at the end to yield to the yeasty wheat aftertaste. Pours opaque rose-colored, and looks like a smoothie. Soft mouthfeel, decent carbonation, and some suspended yeast is nice. Creamy head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours reddish brown, minimal head. Aroma of farm fields and fruit. Taste is.....disappointing, I am a huge fanboy of Phillips but this one disappoints. I'm not sure what to make of it, other reviews say metallic, I get that, them the raspberry light finish at the end. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A solid fruit beer. Better than fort Garry’s attempt. Pours a red rhubarb color. Aromas of sweet raspberry jam. Flavors are sweet and tart raspberry with a slightly bitter finish Refreshing.

exeter (302) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Pours dark copper with a slight head, which fades quickly. The taste is of course raspberries but they hit near the end of the sip. This is a very sweet beer at the start and then finishes dry.

Reimer96 (1219) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Pours a lightly hazy pinkish red with frothy white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of raspberries, fruity esthers, light grassy hops and wheat. Flavor is tart raspberries and spicy wheat with a bit of acidity and a dry finish. Balance is towards beer tart raspberries not sweetness which makes this a crisp and sessionable summer thirst quencher.
