Poured from the bottle. Pours a crystal clear pinkish color with a bit of a gold hue to it. Head is creamy pink and goes from almost two fingers to almost nothing fairly quickly. Aroma is dominated by raspberry, followed by sour cherry, and then some wheat malt sweetness. Tastes follow the aromas with a bit more of the sour cherry giving a nice dose of tartness and last of the finish is typical wheat malt. This is quite refreshing and tasty. Need to have a blind taste test with this and a UFO raspberry hefeweizen from Harpoon.

Stale malt and raspberry nose. Clear rose, thick pink head, fair retention. Slightly tart, harmonious combination of cherries and raspberries. Light body, moderate carbonation, a bit watery.

bottled - pretty good & just like the description states, you can taste the tartness & the berry flavor (though I didn’t taste any cherries in there).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance- Clear coppery pink color with a pinkish white head. Nice and fluffy and good lacing.
Aroma- Tart raspberries, malty cereal, straw
Flavor- Big tart/sour beginning, the cherries and raspberries coming through, slides into a smooth bready finish, very carbonated. Seems more like a refreshing summer beer than an October release but the Pink Breast cancer theme couldn’t be resisted. I liked this alot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 1-12-14-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – As the name would suggest it pours a darker pink/ruby like color with a two finger foamy pink tinted head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a ton of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma consists mostly of tart fruity smells of raspberry and cherry. Some sweeter smells of the fruits are there as well and mixed some hints of wheat with a touch of graininess to produce a somewhat sour and wheaty fruited aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a wheaty taste along with a lightly sweetened raspberry flavor. As the flavor moves on some yeasty tastes and a bit of funk come to the tongue. The sweeter raspberry becomes more tart in nature with some lighter flavors of tart cherry also coming to the tongue. The wheatiness gains a bit of intensity as the flavor advances further and becomes grainier in nature. Along with these transitions so to comes some flavors of hay and grass. In the end with the loss of the sweet, the increase in the tart, and the funky, grassy, and hay flavors, one is left with a light puckering fruit taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the tart and fruity flavors of the beer the overall feel is rather good as it keeps the beer rather refreshing without becoming too undrinkable due to the more tart and lightly funked nature of the flavors.
Overall – A fairly tasty tart fruited beer. Not overly sweet, nor too tart to be enjoyable. Rather nice.
