COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Seamstress Union is back by popular demand. This raspberry wheat ale is made in very limited quantities each year. It is the prefect beer for a summer day. Raspberries along with unmalted wheat give this fruit beer a refreshing "tartness." hallertau hops and a dry finish further distinguish this wheat from other Northwest fruit beer. Its subtly "pink" hue further heightens the drinking experience. Why not? It is summer after all.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A big sweet berry nose. The flavor is sugary, sweet berry. Some dry yeast and toffee. Ok.

Honestly smells and looks better than it tastes. Mild wheat body with subtle hints of raspberry pair well with fruity maybe herbal hop. Fruit notes could be more forward and pronounced.

A unique but bit of an off tasting beer. Pours a nice bright cloudy orange with a white head and lots of sediment. Smells of raspberry and floral notes, especially rose hips. Taste starts with floral notes, but then becomes quite empty tasting. Only a hint of ripe raspberry in the finish and aftertaste. Had in the bottle.

pours a clear pale light amber with a very small white head. smell is of berry and some wheat. taste is a bit watery, wheat, berry, a bit of carbonation on the tongue. overall not much to it dry and berry.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle:   Straw, dirty, slightly darker with a pink hue, small frothy white head, little lacing.   Moderate Raspberry nose, pale wheat malts.   Doesn’t really translate onto the tongue, too soft.   At least its not all that mealy tho.   Soft wheaty notes.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.  Smells good, but its too soft on the tongue.   Faint Raspberries on the finish.   Clean, wheaty, not mealy, but not enough fruitiness.

Had on tap at their brewery. Lighter and easy drinking for the style. Not too sweet. Good berry and lager balance
