COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unfiltered wheat ale is flavored with raspberry for a delicious summer refresher.

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 Iíve had by Schlafly is stellar. And I love raspberry beers. But this one is just like a weak, organic (i.e. watery) beer.

Pours a pink tinted golden color. Aroma of Raspberry. Surprisingly subtle raspberry flavor that complements the wheat quite well. Not bad.

Butters (4020) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2009
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.

aracauna (3402) - Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Nice raspberry in the aroma, but the rest of the berr doesnít do a lot to support it. More of a typical American wheat beer than a hefe under that raspberry.

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.

Narnad (1517) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Had on tap at Schlaflyís brew pub. Arrives to the table looking exactly like ruby red grapefruit juice; cloudy, pinkish in color, and a small bubbly head. Aroma is very light with notes of some yeast and raspberry fruit. Beer has a modest body, a creamy texture and some pretty lively carbonation. Flavor has raspberry really coming through, though not overly strong as in most fruity beers. Wheat and yeast show up as well but not as prevalent as in most hefes and it finishes with a heavy overall sweetness. Raspberry seems to quell the normal wheat characteristic in the hefe. Overall a good beer but could not get over the fact that it looked like raspberry, kept expecting a tart citrus flavor instead of a sweet fruity one.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Pours an amber hue into the glass with a small white head. Smells of yeast with a hint of raspberry. I taste the smallest hint of raspberry imaginable on the palate with this one. They probably couldíve called this a hefeweizen and never mentioned the raspberry and I may not have noticed. This was a good beer and I enjoyed it but I was a bit disappointed at the lack of raspberry with this one.

Very underwhelming. I was very excited and grabbed a six pack. But where o where is the raspberry. It practically isnít there. Iím not drinking it on a warm day, but still no aroma, no flavor. This is 35 days old so Iíd expect it to be decent. Just disappointing.

Bottle courtesy of beastiefan2k. Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells of raspberries, wheat and sugary. Tastes of raspberry syrup, tarte and citrussy. Decent.
