Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Color was hazy yellow, almost pineapple. Looked a lot like a hefeweizen. About an inch of head. Frosty lacing on the top. Frosty sporadic film on the sides. Smelled of raspberry right away with what also appeared to be strawberries. Nothing else really came through. Tasted raspberry up front, but not as strong as I thought it would be considering the smell. Not much happened after the initial raspberry hit, though. Light body. Slick texture. Lively carbonation (moderate). Smooth finish with raspberry left on the tongue. Embarressly (that’s a new word), I liked this beer a lot more before I started rating beers. I still enjoy it as it reminds me of raspberry ice cream. Good summer beer.

Pretty solid beverage, the raspberry really drowns out the shock top taste, creating a decent beer

12 ounce bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a hazy gold color (with a few floaties) and about a half inch white head. The head doesn’t stay around for long, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is raspberries (more syrup than fresh raspberries) and some wheat. Taste is the same as the aroma, it’s all raspberries and wheat. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it has moderate carbonation and it goes down easy. Not too bad, overall. I’d drink this again in the future.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Purchased on my trip to Vegas at the Total Wine store. Pours a hazy golden colour with a small white cap that leaves decent lacing. Very nice smelling raspberry scent with hints of oranges and wheat. Very light tartiness in the mouthfeel, but just made to go down easy. The taste is a bit milder than the aromas, but still well-balanced between the fruit and the grain. Really not bad at all coming from AB (especially the part written about using the stuff at the bottom of the bottle).

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle at GABF. Pours a pale gold with a frothy white head. Pretty generic. Light haze. Nose is somewhat artificial smelling, essence of raspberry and a hint of bread? On the sweeter side in the nose, lacking the more rustic raspberry notes. On taste, pretty bland. Light tartness and some raspberry poking through. Lacks character and depth. Easy to drink, though. Meh.

Aurelius (4067) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2011
A nice jammy aroma, puts me in the mind of a raspberry danish. Bad label, the beer itself is hazy but clean and golden looking. Thin lacing white head. Sweet - a little too cough syrupy for my taste - the raspberry was ham-handed. Low bittering, pasty mouthfeel. Flaccid - loses its effervescence and there’s not enough backbone to the liquid without it. Tart, slightly bitter aftertaste with berries. Meh. Part of a mixpack, ABC Liquors, Appalachee Parkway.

someone gave me this, i figured it’d at least be better than bud lite but i was very wrong. horrible super sweet rasberry flavor took me straight back to in college when we’d all share BACARDI RAZ wine cooler things and eat little caesars. the nostalgia factor was fun but how they can call this beer is beyond me. at the end you get a really bad wheaty finish thing that makes you want to die. this was really that bad. the target demographic probably loves it

12oz bottle from a recent craft beer event. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is an overpowering burst of raspberry syrup and maybe some grains after looking real hard. Flavor is a light wheat and an overwhelming wallop of raspberry syrup. The syrup overpowers most aspects of the beer parts and is more like raspberry soda.

12oz bottle to pint glass. nice pale golden color with a recognizable raspberry nose. The nice off white head which dissipated quickly. tastes great with the raspberry leading the way.

355 mL bottle. It’s not awful. I’m not a fan of fruit beer, and this one clearly uses extract or syrup or something. But I’ve had worse. It’s a little light on wheat and spice, but it’s fairly drinkable. Which, I suppose, was the plan.
