Bottle. Kinda hazy gold yellow pour. Raspberry and other fruity smells for the aroma. Some wheat malty flavor and a fair amount of berries. Maybe a bit of bubblegum if the beer isnt cold. Acidic and tart, and the palate struck me as too sharp for the flavors offered.

Out of the bottle it was a bit hazy. The raspberry flavor was not overbearing and almost pleasant. This one went down smooth and clean. Still, having bought a six-pack, I had no problem leaving the rest for the wife.

Pours a light pinkish color with a good amount of foamy white head...very very interesting looking. Aroma is slightly raspberryish, slightly metallic, and hints of corn. Flavor is rather watery with a raspberry tart finish that mellows into sweetness. Overall, I didn’t think this was great, but I didn’t find it terrible either. Felt kinda girlish, but ah well.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a strong berry scent. Flavor is a bit wierd. Its a sweet berry and bubblegum mix. Finishes dry but does leave a bad after taste after the swallow.

Pours a hazy color very similar to the inside of a plum. Head is fairly good. Aroma is mildly toated wheat malts and fresh rasberries. Flavor seems to be a very typical american wheat with some realistc rasberry flavor. Balance is pretty good, unlike the last fruit beer I had (Buffalo Bill’s Orange Blossom Cream Ale).

Not real impressed with this one. It was a mix b/t fruit and hef, with no real winner, or no real distinctive taste.

Thought it was a wine cooler. Very, thin and watery. Wheat beer?? The aroma was somewhat promising, but it all went downhill from there.

Hazy orange beer with lots of carbonation. Light aromas of fruit and wheet. Berry flavored, but not an overpowering fruit. The fruit doesn’t fit perfectly, it seems too kool-aid like. There is also standard wheat characters that I’ve come to expect from fruit beers.

This is basically a hefe with a fake tasting fruit flavor. It’s like sucking on a grape lollipop for 10 minutes and then sucking down an average hefe, not my favorite.
