COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This popular beer is refreshing and perfectly balanced with a crisp tartness. It has a clean creamy texture and is bursting with raspberry flavor. It pours a golden color with a huge rocky white head. Itís made with a natural raspberry flavoring and soft and chewy malts that blend to a mild sweetness. Simple and refreshing.

Cavie (3746) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Swalden28. Hazy yellow pour. Raspberry nose with some dry wheat grain. Taste is bland and dry. Finishes a little wetter than I expected. Raspberry taste is fake when it hits the palate. Not great.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Bottle thanks to swalden28. Pours with a hazy yellow body and a thin white head. Aroma of raspberry and honey with a bit of grassyness. Flavor is wheat and a lot of butter and raspberries. Not pleasant, tons of fake raspberry syrup. Fizzy and thin.

Aroma: A prominent malty aroma with a fresh fruit character. Appearance: It a pours hazy straw yellow color with a low white head. Flavor: Itís a crisp clean beer with minimum graininess that provides a fine canvass for the raspberries to shine. Mouth feel: It has a light body with medium carbonation Overall Impression: This is a refreshing beer; it very well suited to the warmer seasons. This would make a good lawn mower beer in the summer. I do believe the beer is true to the style. Itís just a beer (and a style) I donít enjoy.

Bottle. Light to medium yellow color. Small white head which dimishes quickly. Initially a light malt taste, followed by a berry taste which lasts for a short amount of time. Aftertaste has a light tart flavor. Light body and soft/light carbonation.

One time I tried a a whole slew of fruit beers. This is good but nothing special really. There are just better ones out there. Still meh.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. An unclear golden beer with a lazing light orangey head. The aroma has strong notes of raspberries in the front with lighter notes of wheat in the back ground. The flavor is sweet again with strong notes of raspberries - too much for me with light notes of wheat in the back ground, leading to a dry wheaty finish. Turn down the raspberries, please. The body is thin.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2008
Raspberry scone nose. Pale yellow, some slight haze. Taste is just a hint of raspberry tartness, some bitterness, not a lot of malt flavor. Very fizzy, a bit thin, finish is not clean. Not a huge fan of fruit beers, but I think there are better ones ones out there.

tap at the brewpub - Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Surprise! It smells of raspberries! hah... anyway, it has a sweet, malty, raspberry flavor. Itís light bodied and refreshing, though not impressive.

Bottle: Pale yellow, nearly clear, slight pink hue, huge rocky white head, spotty lacing.   Very pale artificial raspberry nose.   Also seems to pick up a bit of sulfer.   Sorta smells like a fart.   Soft raspberry flavor, artificial, on top of a kolsch like background.   Yet again, for a fruit beer it is like most and goes the artificial route.   Wheatiness is there, but is minor.   Just another fairly average fruit beer.   Seems as if nobody can come close to New Glarus.
