Sample at Hops Haven. Hyper filtered, pale yellow tan. Thin white head. Sweet, artificial raspberry aroma. Light to medium bodied, rather insipid but enjoyable enough for what it is.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Sampled on our Great Lakes beer tour. Pale light gold. Smells likes raspberries. Reminds me of raspberry zotz from the late 70s, which is probably not a good thing. There’s a honey sweetness, but the raspberry flavor isn’t quite right.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Mildly hazy lifeless straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of raspberry and some sweet malt. Body is over carbonated and tastes mainly of raspberry with some bitterness and burnt qualities to it. Somewhat astringent.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2008
This beer was very similar to a Smirnoff raspberry, or something like that, except it was more wheaty and noticeable hops in the finish. Pours a light golden colour with a pinkish hue. Small barely noticeable white head. Taste is lighter, sweet and somewhat watered down.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Light wheat beer overly infused with a slighly artificial raspberry juice flavor that seemed to overwhelm everything else here. Some hop bite (floral in nature) seemed to redeem things slightly.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Cloudy straw color with a light hue of pink. Fresh raspberries in the aroma along with a touch of sweet wheat. Flavors of bananas and raspberries. I have to wonder if they have tweaked the recipe from some of the earlier ratings. While there is a slight sugar raspberry flavor, it is balanced by some banana and pale malts. I found this quite drinkable from a fruit beer standpoint.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2007
On tap at the brew pub in Sheboygan, WI. Pours a clear pale golden brew with an average white head that dissolves to a fine film and foamy ring. Nice lacing. Aroma of raspberry kool ade, light wheat malt and a touch of flowery hops. Taste is smooth, and has less fruit in taste and more bread-like character. The finish taste has a berry character with some malt aftertaste. According to previous ratings, the brewmaster may have improved this beverage.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Mega clear pale yellow with a thin creamy white head. Aroma is raspberry seeds and some Kool Aid powder. Thin, watery and washed out. Bon voyage, flavor. Everything you could expect from appearance. Like a carbonated, no-calorie spritzer. Bah.

Festival tap: Not sure why they bothered hauling this to a festival. It was brewpub cookiecutter all the way, just another "plain jane" ras-wheat with nothing to write home about. Sweet fresh berry nose, thin body, lightly pink tint to the color. Grainy in the middle.
