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

Narnad (1504) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Had on tap at Schlafly’s 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 could’ve 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.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2009
Very underwhelming. I was very excited and grabbed a six pack. But where o where is the raspberry. It practically isn’t there. I’m not drinking it on a warm day, but still no aroma, no flavor. This is 35 days old so I’d 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.

Cavie (4043) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Slight rose tint to the appearance. Raspberries are present on the nose, however less apparent in the taste. Not bad.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Tasted 9/1/08. Growler from the Tap Room. Hazy with a straw amber hue. Bone white layer of head. Subtle yet ample estery aromas. Light to medium bodied with tight effervescence. Tart with citrus notes. Nice fruity mix to a solid base beer. Mild tart cherry character. Mild and sweet and smooth. Easy and smooth with a potentialy high drinkability. Overall, tart, grainy and slightly above decent.

hayduke (3778) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
From the brewpub in St. Louis, this draft pour came the color of pink grapefruit juice with a white head tinged with pink. Nose of raspberry as you would expecdt, and some grassy hops. Somewhat fizzy mouthfeel. Flavor is of caramel malts and raspberry, and the finish is sweet and dry.
