3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish yellow, no head. Big Fresh raspberry aroma. Fruit beers always seem to score well on the aroma, and this no exception. Raspberry flavor, too, of course, but rather whispy - and I mean that as a compliment, the raspberry flavor is not over powering or cloying. Note of lemon, too, as well as nice grainy, crisp finish. Another nice one from Lou18!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very artificial - some raspberries - very unsweet and yes, wheaty. The flavor is mildly fruity, and slightly nutty. The finish is smooth, but it leaves a slightly metallic lingering on one’s tongue.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
More goodies from lmgraz1, scents of apricot and peaches dominate the aroma, the appearance leads me to believe this is bottle conditioned..a very hazy tan to orange color, very little head, what there was is a light foam, that fades fast. Flavor is closer to snapple than beer, the only real beer part of the taste is a little malt at the end. The body is very crisp and refreshing, I could probably drink this in about 3 mouthfuls because of how easy it goes down. I would drink this again, but it really was closer to fruit juice with beer adden than beer with fruit added.

12 oz bottle via trade with Lou18 - Thanks Lou - Pours golden with brief white head that fades very quickly. Aroma of raspberry and a bit of apricot as well Flavor is a bit of raspberry over wheat. Not much.. One dimensional and not real interesting. Palate is light and somewhat watery. Low carbonation and not a real great mouthfeel either.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 Labeled RAZZ ALE-Big syrupy raspberry aroma-very sweet, out of balance sugary flavor-raspberry is artificial tasting like a syrup or jam-no wheat to be found only cereal graininess-6 pack i bought was very inconsistent-most pours had no head whatsoever others had some-some bottles were filled below the neck-others not-not a good buy-ive brewed raspberry ales 10X better than this...

Hazy golden color - mild aroma of apricot, wheat and, of course, raspberry - light and crisp - just a trace of raspberry in the flavor - not a lot going on here - just another in a long line of boring raspberry wheat ales - you’d think more people would get it right considering it seems to be a popular brew to make - try Southampton’s if you want a good example of the style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours with a frothy, thin, pale, off white colored head. The beer is a clear copper-amber color. The aroma is a mix of restrained raspberry, stretched almost thin grain, and a sort of watery beer character. The taste is lightly sweet with a tart raspberry note to it that is present throughout this beer. Overall the raspberry flavor is quite mellow and restrained. This beer is mostly just a water amber all. Not too much to it, but at least there are not any off-putting flaws here either.
