bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2011

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 18, 2012
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.

jcwattsrugger (11223) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2012
12oz bottle-pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is raspberry, wheat. Taste is raspberry seltzer, wheat, 2nd spice/herbal hops with some bite.

Tmoney99 (11084) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate tart rasperry and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft fruit beer.

adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2012
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.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Sampled at the NoVa Summer Beer Fest in Leesburg, VA on 6/25/11. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of candied raspberry, citrus. The taste is artificial raspberries and grainy wheat notes. Medium bodied. About what you’d expect.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 2, 2012
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.

JoeMcPhee (8565) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Cloudy yellow pour with a white head that fades pretty quickly. The aroma is quite sweet and fruity. Lots of raspberry notes as well as some wheaty spice. It’s not got much in the way of malt flavour or character. Raspberry juice retronasally. A light quaffer.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
2014-10-26. Hazy dark yellow with a small white head. Aroma of artificial seeming raspberry aroma and light wheat. Flavour has similar impression of artificial raspberry over sweet cereally wheat. After a long day of better beer I abandoned this after a few sips and went for a caffeinated soda. Meh. Bottle shared by GG

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle from Wegman’s Collegeville and Capone’s. Pours fizzy dark straw with pink hues and a minimal white head. Nose is raspberry, mild hopcitrus. Tastes very sweet, too sweet, with an artificial raspberry flavor that overshadows everything else.
