Partially clear golden with a quickly fading white head. Aroma of grain and raspberry. Flavor is water with a backdrop of grain and raspberry. Only moderately sweet, couldnt detect any bitterness really. Body is watery and thin with lively carbonation. Not good.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2005
Hazy golden pinkish, thin off white / pinkish head. Nose was tart raspberry, light citrus and wheat. Flavor was similar with light sweet tart raspberry notes and wheat up front, then followed closely by small does of back end bitterness. Light bodied and watery, soft carbonation, drying wheaty, fruity finish. Nuff said....

this is a fruity wheat. its not that good, but its not horrible either. the sweetness from the fruit reminds me of cheap polish candy that my grandma use to like a lot. i dont like the aftertaste. it looks poopy. i dont want to let this warm. i spilled half of it anyway.

Light golden in color with a hazy appearance and a small white head. Aroma is of wheat and fruit. Flavor is fruity,with a wheat tang and a highly carbonated palate.

Only had a slight rasberry taste. Small bottle, with a small head. Did not smell as fruity as I thought it would.

Best buy in town when a buck at one of my favorite bars. I wish it was alittle more full-bodied, but Ill get over it.

Very good mix of wheat and raspberries. Very light feel going down. Very refreshing everyday beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2007 Re-taste. I was very high on acid my first rating... anyway... Try to find the berry in this beer. Its the new "Wheres Waldo." Watery, little flavor, and disgusting. Nuff said.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) A raspberry-wheat beer from Louisiana! Oh yes, it had to come. Has the typical wheaty haze with some sediment. Orangey with a slight reddish tint and a good head. Quite dry and only a hint of sweetness from the fruit. Actualy quite refreshing.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Aroma is an uninviting combination of light hops and stale Veryfine. Pours a cloudy yellow with a quickly dissipating head. Flavor is boring to say the least - its not particularly tart or fruity. I imagine if, in my younger (and albeit stupider) days, I mixed Snapple and any light domestic that it might have tasted much like this. Finishes bubbly at first, like a wine cooler, and then completely flat and watery at the end. Its not awful, its not great. Its just mediocre. Would *not* buy again.
