3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance had a hazed over slightly red to light amber color. The head was there but it died within about less than forty seconds. Light lacing stuck and then slid.
The smell definitely had the raspberry and as it warmed there was a decent grainy/wheatiness lightly coming in.
The taste was a fairly decent combination of the wheat and the raspberry, slightly sweet but also a decent tart.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was decent for the style and for me. It seemed a bit slick on my tongue.
Overall, for the most part, a pretty good raspberry wheat ale I could have again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Raspberry, sweet aroma. Similar flavor--with some light biscuit-y malt that comes out more in the finish/aftertaste. Pretty good balance; the malt flavor is light, but not overwhelmed by the raspberry.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is raspberry, doughy, an almost Belgian yeast quality. The flavor is watery, slight dough, raspberry. Very light on the palate. No real flaws other then being extremely light bodied.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle while vacationing near Zion Nat. Park in Utah. Aroma was of raspberries, cloves and light hops. Taste as similar in nature - Raspberry was evident up-front but was not too prevalent - just right. Palate was nice. Overall, a pretty good fruit/wheat brew.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Too damn fruity. Putrid artificial raspberry taste ruined this one. If I wanted a fruity drink I’d buy wine.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle consumed in Park City, Utah. Nose: Raspberries. One-dimensional. Taste: medium sweet, light bitter, medium sour. Quite lively and very well-defined rasberry, not artificial. Wheat does play a roll here (despite its absence on the nose) and gives a very freshly baked background to the raspberries. Some distant vanilla too. Very comfortable mouth-feel.

on tap in park city 7/21/10.
clear orange gold pour with a white head.
it smells like sticky sweet artificial raspberries, slate, a touch tart and a little dust.
the flavor is mostly like the aroma... only not nearly as sweet as the aroma made me believe.
it is crisp and prickly though it grows watery as it sits.5/3/5/3/13/2.9

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of douglas88. 12oz bottle pours clear gold with short lived white head. The modest aroma exudes raspberry and maybe a distant echo of wheat. The taste is much the same beginning with a slight sharp carbonation enhanced raspberry tartness. It quickly becomes sweet with a sensation of raspberry extract and notes of wheat. It ends with a sticky wheat sort of coating inside my mouth.
