2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Poured a sparkling clear amber with a very small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was extremely strong of raspberry’s with a mild sweet yeast and a light bread malt scent. It tasted sweet and very light with healthy notes of raspberry in the beginning and finished about the same with the flavor disappearing quite rapidly. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation. Overall not a brew worth drinking again.

Mild aroma of wheat and raspberry. Flavor more raspberry-forward with some wheat gently in background. Decent mild fruit beer; refreshing.

Syrupy sweetness. Could stand to have a bit more effervescence and a touch more bite.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: Albertson’s in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack)
Purchased: Sept. 30, 2014
Consumed: Oct. 1, 2014
Misc.: Best by Nov. 2014
Poured a honey, pale, clear color with two fingers of frothy, off-white head, which settles nicely. Good looking streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Average-to-below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.53)
Got lager/pilsner notes to start in corn, honey wheat and grassy notes, followed by some buttery malts. After some deep whiffing I got strawberry, raspberry jam and cherry. (Smell - 3.66)
Tasted a lot like what I thought I would, a lot like the smell. The fruit side dominates here with raspberry, strawberry and cherry coming through, giving way to the wheat notes - grass, honey, corn and buttery biscuit. Not that appealing. (Taste - 3.25)
Light body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt, somewhat refreshing finish. (Feel - 3.21)
I’m a sucker for fruity beers and this one just didn’t do it for me. Shock Top’s Raspberry Wheat is much better. (Overall - 3.25)

"Liked this one juuust a hair better than the apricot as there was a little more too it, but that’s still not saying much. Decent berry nose, but light in every aspect and just a little off. Nothing else going on but light fruit. "

Horrible. Raspberry aroma is offputting and fake, as well is the flavor. A gimmicky beer the might as well be a shitty wine cooler. Difficult to drink all 12 ounces. Not the worst micro I’ve had, but still bad.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a mostly transparent golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of raspberries with a fairly sweet backbone and. Touch of wheat. Tastes like it smells, but sweeter. Borderline medicinally so. Average (at best) on the palate. One is plenty. It would be much more drinkable if it wasn’t so sweet, but that’s probably the draw for folks who favor this kind of beer.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Aroma - smells great. Just like raspberry juice.
Appearance - pours a boring gold. Just like a light beer.
Taste - like a pilsner with raspberry flavor. Actually not bad at first but seems like a fake fruit flavor and it starts to suck.
Mouthfeel - not much head. Normal carbonation. Long fruit aftertaste of fake raspberry flavor.
Overall - not my cup of tea. Think coots light with fruit.
