2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I was expecting more from the smell. Had a sour, yeasty aroma with no hint of raspberries. It did smell a hefeweizen, definitely not like a fruit beer. It is good looking - cloudy medium golden color with an off-white smallish head. Tastes sour, almost stale with a real fake hint of raspberry at the end. Palate is virtually non-existent. Not a good offering from Schlafly, which kills me to say because I like them so much.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Old Town. Aroma: I was expecting a raspberry bomb, but the nose actually gives you a typical Hefeweizen vibe- slightly tart wheat, a hint of banana, some light spiciness. Raspberry is in there, but it’s surprisingly subtle. Appearance: Unfiltered, tinted rosé pour with some suggestion of carbonation; a foamy off-white head fades into a patchy skin. Flavor: Just as the nose, the typical hefeweizen flavors are most noticeable off the bat; raspberry becomes more prevalent towards the finish, also imparting a very light tartness; the finish dries out completely with a lingering grassy note. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Much better than many are suggesting here; at least I think so. A really well constructed summer quencher.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice crisp pink coloured tint to a strong copper body, all with a thick, four centimetre tall microfoamed tan head with pink highlights. Aroma of raspberries, sour cherries, light malt and a bit of wheat freshness. Light-bodied; Strong wheat flavour at first with a good amount of raspberries, but no depth (not to be expected, either) and pungency of any real flavours aside from a touch of malt, but that’s very lacking as well. Aftertaste shows the raspberries well, but nothing to sustain them with - no malt depth and no complexity in the flavour profile. Overall, a pretty weak offering, and even at a low ABV, there could be some flavours coming through here, sort of like a gose, and somehow most of those generate a good set of flavours despite the low ABV. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Crystal City Wine Shop on 28-April-2015 for US$2,19 sampled at home in Washington on 25-May-2015.

12 oz bottle from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Orange and hazy appearance with a lingering white head. Crisp, fruity and lightly spicy with a raspberry finish. Light and easy to drink. Somewhat refreshing.

120z bottle from Xroads. Well simply put scroll past this one unless you want to try Schlafly’s answer to sweet fruity macro crap which this beer was obviously made to compete against. Poured a super ugly milky rosy/amber body with a smaller fizzy way off white head. Aroma of bad fruit, dry toast, soap and vomit. Flavor is slightly better with bad fruit, newspaper, sawdust and grain husk. This beer sucks.

Meh, nothing really noteworthy. Raspberry rings in a bit on the fake tasting side.
