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.

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 (1058) - 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.

Pours pale yellow into a Sam glass. White head with medium retention recedes leaving no lacing. Raspberry seed aromas. Bitter raspberry pits from front to back. Lasting bitter marshmallow finish.

12oz bottle from Pickís Liquors poured into a Shaker. NOTE: This is a very old bottle that has been in my fridge for about 9 months. Decent amount a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Clear and light gold. Looks like a pint of pilsner. Aroma is straight raspberry juice. Maybe a slight citrus hop but that could be my imagination. Taste is light sweet. It is not very good. It tastes like a pitcher of watered down homemade raspberry juice cocktail from concentrate that has gone bad because someone left it out overnight. Light bodied with thin texture. Flat carbonation leads to a average length and gross aftertaste. Overall, itís pretty bad. Nothing Iíll be buying again. Iíll probably pour out the rest of this glass actually. The only reason it has such a high overall score is because it has probably gone bad in my fridge.

12oz bottle poured amber with full head. Aromas of wheat straw and fruit mainly raspberry. Heavy cloying sweetness with a fruity taste. Body is light to medium with a sweet finish. A good chick brew

Iím not a big fan of berry beers, but am always willing to try another, especially when itís from a prolific brewery like Southern Tier. Projects a radiant golden color with excellent clarity. Smells distinctively of raspberry, oh so sweeeet. Based on the aroma Iíd expect the flavor to be dominantly berry. However, the taste is like a pilsner with only a dash of raspberry. Crisp and refreshing, slightly tart, with a dry finish. Bit skunky in the end. Light body, feels a bit watered down. Iíd pass this onto a girlfriend, unless paired with the right food.
