3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad attempt at a flavored hefe weizen. I had this on their brewery tour in July 2003.
I agree with the others that the raspberry overshadows everything else. Definately not a winner, but not a complete loss either.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this when they did it awhile ago, but since retired. Just getting around to rating this now. Cheap artificial raspberry aroma and taste. Same as what they use in the Generation Porter. The berry flavouring overpowers, by far, the light weiss character and leaves you with a strange tartness on the finish. Thankfully, we’ll never see this again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy grapefruity pink with a puffy white head. Sweet fruity raspberry aroma shadows out any remants of wheat beer. Body starts soft and lightly fruity sweet with a nice balance of weiss character underneath. A very well balanced raspberry wheat that captures the essence of the blend of raspberry and wheat beer flavor.
