Sampled at the Music City Brewers Festival. Pours amber with some reddish hue and a white head. Aroma of raspberry and ale esters. Light bodied with a fizzy carbonation. Flavor is of pale wheat malts, raspberry koolaid, and saccharin. Not enjoyable for me. I poured it out.

12 oz. bottle. pours a thin head, poor duration, over a pale yellow with some reddish tinges slightly cloudy body......nose is primarily raspberry.......taste initially is mild malts, and then raspberry, ending with a slightly tart finish......mouthfeel is light, carbonation light also. An OK but remarkably uncomplicated brew.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an interesting hazy light brown / pink with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is all tart raspberries. Light bodied beer with a lot of carbonation. Taste is a bit watery. Rasperberries are noticable, but more sour and diluted than on the aroma. The flavor does not deliver what the aroma previewed. This is an okay beer, but nothing to get excited about

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kind of tastes like an organic wheat beer with a light tinge of raspberry. For a Schlafly offering, this is most disappointing. Every thing else I’ve had by Schlafly is stellar. And I love raspberry beers. But this one is just like a weak, organic (i.e. watery) beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pink tinted golden color. Aroma of Raspberry. Surprisingly subtle raspberry flavor that complements the wheat quite well. Not bad.

A little above average for an easy drinking fruit beer. Not quite as sweet or raspberried as a purple haze, but this is more like a hefe with faint tart raspberry notes. Not overbearing. But nothing special.

A smooth and fruity beer that makes a hot summer day pass by more quickly. Not intense or bitter. Smooth and mild. But quite drinkable.

Nice raspberry in the aroma, but the rest of the berr doesn’t do a lot to support it. More of a typical American wheat beer than a hefe under that raspberry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, golden amber body with a thin, white, fizzy head that dissipates quickly leaving a light, fizzy lacing. Aroma is some wheat malts, yeast, and slightly tart fruits (mostly citrus with some raspberry highlights). Flavor is initially some lighter wheat malts with a bit of sweet raspberry flavoring. The middle is slightly yeasty with the raspberries blending into the wheat malts. The finish is mostly sweet wheat with a touch of lingering raspberry. Medium to light bodied with an even finish and a touch of tartness. Overall, a decent tasting wheat with a touch of raspberry tartness. Not bad at all, but not too exciting...although the touch of raspberry is enjoyable.
