2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz draft as "Raspberry Wheat". Filtered pinkish yellow with moderate sticky white head. Aroma is sweet raspberry. Taste has a little more tart and grain. Body is rather light, but not very crisp. Overall, reminded me of sparkling juice.

On tap from brewpub. Meh. Huge raspberry presence, but I didn’t get much else from it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at brewpub (as Raspberry Wheat). Pours a clear dark orange with moderate-sized white head; decent retention. Aroma of tart raspberries and grains. Taste is mostly tart raspberries. Light body and carbonation. Fine, but there are better fruit beers out there, even in NS.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Billed as raspberry wheat at the brewpub. Clear, rose-colored, with little head. Sweet soda pop aroma. Thin mouthfeel but not too fizzy. Gentle carbonation. Some initial fruit tartness but sweet yeasty middle and sweet yeasty finish that isn’t all that bad. Has some yeast complexity.

On tap in the Rogues Roost, Halifax. Strong raspberry aroma. Pink/purple appearance with no head. Thin raspberry flavour, a little like a cordial. Not my cup of tea.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
nice amber color, some head, good rasberry aroma, tastes to me like real ras were used, kinda thin on the palate, decent summer refresher

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught sample at the brewpub, May 2007. Lightly hazy amber in color with a touch of lasting head....faint raspberry soda aroma, a bit of cookie/marzipan character....rather faky, juice-from-a-bottle fruit flavor, a bit sour, thin and quite watery but not too terrible. Why continue to submit myself to these things? Oh, it was something to do and it was convenient to where we were walking....I have an excuse, honestly.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled at the brewpub, cold. AP11/07
App.: Slightly hazy, pinkish-copper, no head.
Aroma: An assault of candy-like raspberry, a slight vinous tang after that and not much else.
Palate: Medium-light body, somewhat sharp, effervescent carbonation.
Flav.: More of that artificial raspberry, a little tang, maybe hints of malt behind that; nothing but raspberry to finish.
Menu says: “...sure to please even the hesitant beer drinker.” No kidding! This is pop-beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light orange with not much raspberry in the aroma. Strong semi-artificial flavour of raspberries, tastes like they added raspberries after brewing the beer instead of during. Little wheat flavour at the end.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy pink/orange coloured brew with a thin white head. Aroma is quite sweet and raspberry scented. Tart nose with light wheaty spice and a little bit of bready aroma as well. Flavour is less fruity than the nose would have suggested. Lightly bready with a touch of wheaty spice behind the raspberry. Refreshing, but it’s not the first thing I’d make a grab for.
