3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap and dispensed to a weizen glass at the Grafton location, showing a cloudy, reddish amber color, with white head foam that quickly diminished to a thin ring, and spots of lacing. The aroma was light grain/wheat, some acidity, subtle spice, but no noticeable phenols due to a dominant raspberry puree scent. The taste was similar notes, with a light body, effervescence that seemed to wane by mid serving, but tartness & fruit that remained to the finish.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 Tasted on tap at Water Street Brewery. Light orange that’s a but pinkish. A light fruity aroma with a bitter raspberry taste. Definitely not my thing.

Draft at the Grafton brewery. Comes out a freakishly pink hot mess, just crazy looking Hawaiian Punch-like. Aroma is all fruit, and the taste is, well, sugary sweet thin and cloying. No weiss beer resemblance here at all. What were they thinking with this one.

Draft at Water Street. Pours a deep and hazy pinkish red with a pink head. Nose is straight raspberries, real and very clean. On tasting, the raspberries come through, light tartness and some sweetness. Crisp and clean. THe hefe works well here as well. Superb fruit beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the downtown brewery. Pours a terrific looking pinkish red-orange, like a very interesting juice blend, with a fine white head. Not a color I have ever seen in a brew. Aroma has raspberries upon raspberries. Some grain and some fresh fruit as well. Taste has pine, tart fruits and bread. Quite earthy and very fruity. There is sweetness, but the tart is the main player. Finishes short and tartly sweet. A surprisingly interesting brew which, despite the tartness, was quite drinkable.

On tap at the Delafield location. Pours a near clear pale grapefruit with a white head that dissipated completely. Aroma is full of raspberries that begin sweet but finish with a bit of tartness and underlying wheat. Flavor is full of raspberries that are mainly tart with a backing light wheat note.
