Poured at the Big Texas Beer Festival. Light pour with a small white head. Aroma is light berry, kinda grainy, and sweet. Taste is some awkward raspberry and lots of Sweet N Lo. Gross.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a small white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is rasberry and bready malt. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet fruit and rasberry flavor with nice refreshing finish. Easy to drink a good fruit beer from Twisted Pine.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear yellowish with thin to no head, aroma has notes of big raspberry, slightly tart in there as well, some sweet biscuit, touch of other esters in there as well. Taste is not nearly as good, but has some sweet raspberry, fading quickly into bread, some earth, finishing slightly dry. Just ok.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. Light brown/gold color with very little head. Aroma is....raspberry, surprise? Flavor is light and fruity. Nothing special but these are good to try every once in a while.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle pours clear deep gold with weak white head. The aroma is a mix of berry syrup and an off tart note as well as sugar sweetness in the background. The taste has extract like berry sugariness sitting on the tongue as somewhat tart notes dance around the edges. I get all too brief a moment of beer like notes. This is too sweet, to chemical like as I seem to be getting yucky aspartame. Where’s the beer notes? Where’s the wheat?

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the bottle, this doesn’t have much aroma at all. As it warms in the glass, it has a slightly medicinal fruity thing going on. West coast squat twistoff bottle, mostly clear light gold with a reasonable white head. Slightly tangy, underbittered, lightly sweet. Watery and thin. A clingy raspberry finish. I’m a sucker for raspberry ales, but this was just like thin cough syrup. ABC Likkas, Betton.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thankfully tastes like raspberries, not syrup. I’d probably get sick of it if drinking a whole bottle but I only had a few quaffs of my wife’s.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white, pillowy head. Nose smells like the raspberry chew candy I got in my Christmas stocking when I was a kid. Taste is very mild raspberry -- most of what you get is a slightly metallic, slightly funky wheat ale flavor, with a touch of fruit. (Oddly enough, I taste kiwi. The fruit, not the New Zealand native.) Finishes meh. All right, I suppose.
