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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light browny gold with hints of red I guess you could call it a peach color, no cap was produced at all but the beer does appear to be very fizzy. Aroma is powdery and sharp, with sour raspberry and wet hay. Iím already sick/bored of this beer and I havenít even taken a sip yet. The brew seems watered down and has a thin dry flavor. A powdery sour candy with rose water and stinging carbonation. Malts are light and flavorless. Beer isnít horrid its just not a good one to think about, just slam it on a hot day at the lake and youíll be fine.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale golden colour, clear with a small white head that disappears fairly quickly. Aroma is of wheat, light malts and raspberry. Taste is a mild sweetness, not bitter. Light body, average carbonation, and thin on the palate. Overall a decent beer, not overly sweet, which is nice in a fruit beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Well, upon opening the bottle, it smells like raspberry syrup. Pours a clear, pinky gold with a thin head. Thankfully the raspberry taste isnít as strong as it smells - but itís still definitely the dominant thing going on here. The rest of the beer definitely plays second fiddle, but what does come through is straightfoward and doesnít interfere with the raspberry. Particularly on the finish. Nice crisp and clean mouthfeel - avoids coming off as syrupy - nice and refreshing.
