3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep golden into the glass, with a sudsy head that leaves a tiny ring and spotty lace. The nose is HUGE of distinctive raspberries, albeit sweetened puree. The flavor is truly reminiscent of a lambic, sweet raspberry with tart effervescence introduced toward the mid- and back-palate. There are some wheat notes mingling around here underneath. The finish contains an ever-so-tiny bittered grain... almost processed (plastic notes), which is the biggest detraction to the overall brew. Although not very complex, I actually do enjoy this offering, going down nicely on a hot summer night. The mouthfeel is much like a raspberry soda, light with lively carbonation and residual sugars that linger after the pull has concluded. Raspberry all around, it remains true to form; although, I still say that with the light ABV (3.9%) and strong fruit effervescence, this reminds me much more of a lambic than a traditional fruit beer. Not bad.... but very soda-esque in timbre.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a nice lingering head that laces well. Nose is strong of raspberry, unfortunately, the taste is not as pronounced. The raspberry is there, and asserts itself more as it warms, but with nothing else to make a more complex flavor profile, it comes across as a tad bland. The beer is somewhat dry, with a touch of sweetness on the finish. A nice residual raspberry flavor lingers after the finish. Body is light and is well carbonated. Overall a very good summer ale. A good choice for after cutting grass in the heat.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the better of the numerous raspberry wheat ales i have had. Aroma is like frambois, very good. Body is weak and short but as planned. Well done.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle - foamed up very badly when poured at fridge temp, better after I let it sit for 30 minutes. Aroma is overpowering in its fakeness. The whole thing feels like a mishap at the Kool-Aid factory. Disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Really big raspberry. Juicy in the aroma and flavor. Slightly medicinal in the finish, but not bad.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from my sister-in-law- thanks, Caroline! Pours a cloudy, somewhat dull gold color with a finger of fizzy white head that has just a hint of a tint. Aroma of raspberries and candy and not much else; a little pale malt. Actually a really nice raspberry smell. The flavor is muddled; raspberry, pale malts, straw, cereal, and husky grains. Ends with a whimper. Light-bodied, with an uneven mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Decent fruit beer with a nice aroma.
