2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dirty/hazy orange gold with a creamy/fizzy white head. Nice raspberry aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is fairly artificial raspberry - but they say it’s natural - so? There’s a detectable wheat aspect. This is so much better than the "lemon shandy". Which isn’t really saying all that much. Finishes sort of dry with raspberry.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home. Cloudy yellow orange appearance with a moderate sized, off white head and poor retention. Poor raspberry purée/additive, tangy tart aroma. Raspberry soda, sweet wheat malty, juice box, syrupy flavor. For what it is, it isn’t bad. Probably could be a decent seller for them and I won’t have any problems pounding this bottle in a couple of minutes.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
355mL at a party. Complete sugar bomb 100%. No beer character whatsoever. Mistaken for cloying, 200 calorie fake Italian soda. Undrinkable. I don’t even know how to award points for this beer so I won’t. I award you no points. And may God have mercy on your soul.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
3/20/11. 12oz bottle. How did I know Kevin would rate this before me? Pours a hazy orange with a fluffy off-white head that fades to a film fast. Shouldn’t there be at least a hint of pink? Oh wait... "raspberry flavor" and "raspberry essence." Sounds fake to me... let’s explore. The aroma is... not bad... somewhat pleasant aromas of fresh, tart raspberries waft up along with a bit of citrus and soft wheat. Let’s dig deeper. Uh oh. I should have stopped at the aroma. Ridiculously sweet mass-marketed overly sweet raspberry flavor that is so sweet I can barely finish my glass. Did I mention this is too sweet and tastes fake? Oh boy. How can the largest brewery on the planet miss almost every time?
