From my notes. Reddish pour. Fizzy, 2 fingers of head disappear fast. All I got from the aroma was sweet raspberry flavouring. Ditto the taste - Cloyingly sweet raspberry flavour. lively carbonation, lighter body, but not a joy to drink by any stretch. My wife loves fruit beer and did not care for this.

shoulderbroken (1698) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2012
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Pale blond, very clear with small thin white head. Aroma lots of raspberry, bit gassy smell like a fizzy water. Taste bit spritzy, but very thin. Not really high carbonation but felt very gassy. Further down the glass it gets a bit better, aroma tizer like and a bit of wheat towards the end. Gets better, but still not that great.

Part of Christmas mix six. Pours clear golden, with nice nose of raspberry. Tastes of artificial raspberry syrup and some wheat. Itís crisp but disappointing overall.

This is a decent but somewhat bland APA-ish wheat beer w/ a hint of (seemingly) artificial raspberry flavor. Itís not as bad as it sounds but also not really good either. Itís a perfectly clear golden color w/ a very small head of white bubbles. The raspberry is most apparent in the nose along w/ some grassy herbal overtones. It comes out more in the flavor but there is only the slightest hint of tartness to compliment it. Flavor is very dry which keeps it drinkable. It works reasonably well overall, mostly because the raspberry is not completely overbearing. As far as this sort of thing goes, this is definitely above average.

Iím generally not a fan of fruit beers. Iíve come across a few that I enjoyed, but not many. I saw this one & was reluctant to put in my mix 6, but I hadnít had a bad beer from this brewer yet. Until now... I was quite disappointed with this one. It poured yellow with pretty much no head. The aroma was of wheat & generic candy berry. The flavor was overpowered with chemical artificial berry flavor that ruined the whole thing. palate was average. Not one Iíll be trying again.

neuromatt (1016) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2011
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head that fades and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there are notes of raspberry, wheat and pale malts. The flavour is moderately sweet with raspberries throughout and pale malts. The wheat comes through in the end, providing a slight crispness. The finish is moderate in length with raspberries. On the palate, it is light in body with a dryish texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a simple, one-dimensional beer with not a lot going on. Disappointing for a brew from such a great brewer. 2011-11-15

Pours light golden color. Light aromas of raspberries. Taste is a little watery with some raspberry flavor. Effervescent mouth feel with short dry finish. Overall, I was a little disappointed by this one with the brewers reputation.

Leafs93 (1607) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Pour clear gold with a very thin white head that dissipated immediately. Aroma was raspberry and some breadyness. Taste was sweet with the raaspberry coming through. Very light mouthfeel.

Hangover (1028) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma is all raspberries with a bit of sugary sweetness. Light body, medium carbonation. Raspberry flavor with a bit of wheat twang on the back end. Lingering hay, toast and berry. Refreshing, doesnít seem artificial.

A - Pours a bright slightly hazy golden-orange color with a thin covering of white head. The head fades very quickly leaving behind very little lacing. S - Aroma is full of sugary sweet raspberry smells. There is just a bit of wheat int he background, but the raspberry really dominates here. T - Starts off with raspberry flavor and sugary-syrupy sweetness. There is just a touch of wheat in the background. Through the middle, the sugary flavors get even stronger. The finish is a mix of wheat and raspberry that lingers in a strange way. M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels a bit too watery and thin. The lingering flavors are kinda off and strange. D - Pretty drinkable. There is not too much other to say than the raspberry flavor kinda takes over and it has that overly sugary-syrupy sweetness that is just a bit too much.
