A new fruity favorite. Aroma & taste just smack of raspberries!
Of course this 75 character minimum and the fact that I have to actually write anything at all is perplexing to a mother of four kids who just wants to make a small contribution without having to put a whole lot of thought into it. There. Maybe now I can post.

Wow....raspberries! Thatís what hit me as I poured the beer. Lots of foamy head in the pint class. Crisp flavor, not much fruit in the mouth. Good summer beer for something different. A bit too sweet to drink a bunch of for me.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2013 Draught at Southern Tier. Poured honey yellow with light head. Sweet slightly malty aroma. Tangy sweet raspberry taste. Very refreshing.

I tried this beer on October 17, 2007 at "Smokeless Joeís" in Toronto. The beer poured a translucent golden-brown into the glass with a thin white head that quickly disappeared. The aroma was very hoppy with a hint of raspberries. The mouthfeel was crisp, medium-bodied with champagne like carbonation. The flavour was similar to the aroma, hoppy with a hint of raspberries.

Pours light gold/straw, medium-to-thin white head. Lots of raspberry and wheat on the nose. Medium-thin mouthfeel, some sweet raspberry at the tip of the tongue and then earthy wheat on the finish. Reminds me a lot of Dark Horse Raspberry or Celis Raspberry; itís not complex but itís enjoyable enough. Itís not distinct though, I know Iíd fail to pick this one out in a blind tasting between the three.

Pours a clear golden yellow with active carbonation. This beer is crisp clean and refreshing. Little sweetness and a bit of bitterness accented with a touch of raspberry. Very subtle. Nicely done.

Clear light yellow with a rasperry aroma. The flavor is outstanding in regard to the ratio between/malt/fruit. Dry and lightly sweet.

i didnt think it was a bad fruited wheat. it had a nice flavor of berry. it does what it says, and thats what matters. Its flavor was nice, its aroma we berryish, just a good fruit wheat.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- nearly crystal clear pale yellow body that pours with a 1 finger white head. Head fades to 1/2 finger and has great retention from there. Traces of lacing are left all the way down the glass.
S- Raspberry is the dominant scent and comes through as both sweet and tart. Sweet bready yeast can be smelled underneath.
T-Somewhat bland upfront. Mostly pale malt is detectable. A lot of raspberry comes through for the finish. Flavor is a balance between sweet and tart. Not much yeast presence noticeable in the flavor. A hint of bitterness is also added. Nothing lingers but a faint essence of raspberry.
P-High, tingly carbonation and a light body. Not watery. Yeast is detectable but minimal.
O-Decent, above average beer overall but another fruit beer that doesnít live up to its potential. I would expect ST to but out the best fruit beer ever and though this one is decent, drinkable, and certainly above average...its not what it could be.

Craft. Clear pale gold beer, little white head. Light palate, crisp and very dry. Manages to avoid the curse of US fruit wheat beers by not being insipid. Hugely floral raspberry - bordering on perfumey. Sweet raspberry. Minerally finish, champagne crisp and dry. Nice! Popular with the ladies by all accounts!
