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.

On tap @ Schooner. Pours cloudy pale orange with a thick head. Taste is crisp wheat, minimal but present hops, and just a hint of fruit. So easy to overdo a fruit beer, this is great. Light and easy drinking, with just enough flavor. To be fair, the bike ride down there made this taste even better, but itís still an awesome summer beer.

On draft. I donít tend to like fruit beers, but this one is decently realized. Heavier wheat aroma and taste helps counter the raspberry blast. Still too sweet for my liking.

Serving: from tap at Hopvine Pub. Aroma: light raspberry. Appearance: very small, white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, light pink/yellow body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor, and lightly sour, raspberry finish with average duration. Palate: light bodied with watery texture and flat-to-soft carbonation. Overall: interesting, thirst-quenching, but a bit of a novelty that I wouldnít drink regularly.

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 Iíve had, second only to Aliíi Mango Wheat, which is sadly NLA.

Peach color. Smells like fruit wine. Almost tastes like it too. Effervescent. quite bubbly.

This raspberry wheat is a bit flat, doesn't really excel at either the wheat portion or the raspberry portion. Not bad but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
