Pours an almost clear golden colour with a pink tinge and a small thin white head. Aroma is tart raspberry, mild sweet malts and some bready notes. Flavour is subtle tart raspberry, lightly malty and a touch of bitterness on the finish.

Tap @ the brewery. A fairly light touch with the berries keeps this from being just about the fruit but the underlying ale doesnít bring much to the table.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very hazy, very light yellow color. Looks very watery. Aroma has a strong, freshly ripened raspberry nose with almost nothing else coming through. Flavor has a very natural raspberry fruitiness with a light 2-row malt touch. Body is very light, slightly fizzy. Overall the brew is what you would expect. Lots of fruit flavor, not a lot of anything else. This beer succeeded in not presenting the drinker with a fake fruity flavor but there really isnít anything else there to make you want to drink it. I wish there were just a touch more of some malt presence to make it a bit more "beery".

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a slightly hazy pinkish correct with a small white ring. Aroma of tart raspberries, bread and light malts. Taste is a mild tart raspberry with some bready malts flavors and a very mild hop flavor on the finish. Not a fan of this beer but I can appreciate that itís made with real fruit instead of extract.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from 341mL bottle. Clear golden amber with minimal white head. Very dominant raspberry aroma. Mild malty taste with raspberry overlay. Very light, not much substance. A little watery overall.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle pours a pink tinged golden color with a small white head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is raspberries with some light malts and hops. Taste is raspberry sweetness with a little tartness some light malt sweetness and a trace of hop bitterness. An acceptable fruit beer, but nothing to brag about.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
smells of strong raspberry and weakly wheat, pours gold with a pinkish hue. The head is small. The raspberry flavor is stronger and somewhat sweeter than expected. Clean smooth finish with a little tartness. Interesting overall but to sweet for my liking

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours light-orange, minor head, medium carbonation. 1st sip, way too light and thin-bodied for my liking. Lacking in depth and flavour to hold it together, and the raspberry flavour doesnít add much in terms of character. Easily forgettable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured into a flute. The beer poured a red-tinted pale golden. The head that developed was extremely thin (about 1 cm - if that) considering that this beer is highly effervescent and very busy in the glass.
The aroma is sharp raspberry that fades quick into a boring grainy beer.
This taste is weak and I am not just talking about the raspberry component. The underlying beer is weak and watery. The malts are relatively flavorless. The raspberry is present at the beginning and lighter in nature. It works fairly well with the beer.
The mouthfeel is thin and watery with high carbonation.
Overall - this beer was just kind of boring. Merely "having raspberry" in a beer isnít enough. Wild Rose needs to do something to makes this interesting.
Also - why the fuck did they actually but a "W" before "Raspberry" in the title. Iím not a fan. I still wonít be a fan of that when I get around to drinking their "Wred Wheat" Ale.
