3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: kind of a notably pinkish-tan color, somewhat cloudy, with a one finger pinkish-white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Lacing was minimal.
Smell: Notable raspberries although not overpoweringly so. Some wheat and some yeasty aromas come through. Light, but nice.
Taste: a pretty nice brew. The fact itís a hef comes through in a gentle, non-overbearing way, accented with subtle yet ample raspberries.
Body/mouthfeel: light and easy to drink. Aftertaste is lightly raspberry with a little yeast.
Overall: pleasant, a good summer brew, even if not spectacular.
What I like about this beer is its simplicity and subtleties. The raspberry is very nice, lightly sweet with a touch of tart, but not sicky-sweet or too in your face. Not that I donít like heavily fruity beers - in fact I love them. But that wasnít what I was looking for here, I was looking for a lightly fruity lawnmower beer, and thatís what Schlafly provides in this brew.
Do I think this is Schlaflyís best beer ever? Definitely not. But itís tasty and light and the ABV is moderate, so if youíre just thirsty on a hot summer day, go ahead and try it.

color is a beautiful salmon pink the head is white and leaves some thin lacing. aroma is weak, just slightly smelling of raspberries. taste has a soft raspberry flavor that fades into a strong malty profile. overall i could use more razz.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at the Tap Room, STL. Pours cloudy pink lemonade in color with an adequate white head and notable lacing. Itís quite an attractive beer. Aroma was subtle, tart raspberry. I hate it when I get a strong blast of fruit before I imbibe. Fresh raspberries dominante the flavor with only hints that a hefe is somewhere in the background. Since this is listed as a fruit beer, Iíd say it is a great flavor for the style. Light-bodied and moderately carbonated with a dry, crisp finish. Both serious beer drinkers and newbies alike should find favor with this Schlafly offering.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A big hit for this brewery. They set aside two kegs for their September festival this year after they ran out in 2000. Really too flavorful for me as I prefer fruit tastes to be an afterthought to malts and hops. Yet I still rate this beer high given that it achieves at what it sets out to be. The raspberry taste is very prevelant and permeates the entire drink. It is in the bouquet, you taste it immediately upon drinking, and the fruity twang hangs around after swallowing. In body itís pretty similar to the Schlafly Hefeweizen, an example of a good American wheat. However, any citrus tastes that are present are masked by the raspberry adjunts. An excellent refresher and popular with the ladies.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not the smell of raspberry that I was anticipating. It is generally weak sauce, with decent, at best, flavor.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours pink with little head. Aroma is slight raspberry and wheat. Taste is very tart and not welcoming. Not interested in trying this again.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet aroma of raspberries, pours with an unusual pink tint. Thick, but rapidly disappearing head also with a pink tint. Tastes like raspberry flavored water with little hints of wheat. Very thin body. Almost too thin. An ok beer, definitely not one of Schlaflyís best.
