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.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2010 On tap at 1022 South. Cloudy pale pink-orange pour with a white head which leaves a medium lace. Rasberry nose, medium body, slightly tart in the middle with a balanced middle and finish tending to sweetness. Captures the essence of rasberry without any annoying sweetness or fruitiness. One of the best fruit wheats I’ve had, second only to Ali’i Mango Wheat, which is sadly NLA.

Pinkish red in color, hazy and thin white head. Light Raspberry and wheat malt aroma. Super light Berry flavor a decent wheat flavor. This was Ok not the best Fruit beer I have ever had.

Cool pink ruby red grapefruit color. The aroma has hints of raspberry essence. Stale funky wheat flavor with raspberry seltzer too. Very light in body, bad fake flavors. This one sucked except for the cool color.

On tap at WABL Fathers Day BrewFest 2008. Listed as an "American Hefeweizen" on the festival website, but let’s face it: This is a fruit beer. Pours opaque pale pink with a lacy white head. The berries show up just a bit in the nose, along with some wheat character. Light, watery body with faint carbonation. Not much in the taste, being sort of a liquid echo of the aroma. Fades into nothingness.
