UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 On tap at Poes in South Carloina...Pours pink and very cloudy. Doesnt taste like raspberries maybe a more grapefruit taste than anything. Not too much head or lacing. An enjoyable fruit beer.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy orange with no head. Aromas were minimal, but some raspberry and floral notes were there. Flavor was far less fruity than I expected, really not much there. Not quite a drainpour but close.

bottle. pours a pink orange that looks a lot like something i vomited up after a marathon goldschlager night about 11 years ago. whitish head that remains around the edge of my snifter. rough sour grain aroma that is rather chemical like with a tartness that is probably due to the raspberries. taste is a watered down vitamin c and some grainy flavor. leaves an oily tinge on my tongue. tastes like paint remover smells, ok that might be a bit of an overstatement, it tastes like watered down paint remover smells. not a good example of a fruit beer, not a good beer even. acidic on the tongue. this tastes bad and feels bad. i guess that means this is bad. all that being said i am still able to finish this beer.

Hmmm. Another fruit beer -- this one has been around a while, too. Doesn’t appear that different from a pale lager in the glass. Aroma is convincingly of raspberries, and these smell fresh, as opposed to the syrupy nature of some fruit brews. Also some grains and mustiness. Taste is less pleasing, bright raspberries are in there, but the wheat and the beer taste stale. I miss hops when I drink this.

Considering the rasperry flavour is added after brewing I would expect it to be frutier than it is. Not foul but I can’t think why I would buy this beer again.

Somehow, I didn’t know this was going to be a fruit beer until I bought it and poured it. My first clue was the color, definitely a light purple tint and (surprise surprise!) a little bit of hazyness. It tastes like berry-berry kix, the kid’s cereal. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. The raspberries weren’t overpowering like the Kiriek Lambic I had a while ago, but there also wasn’t much flavor overall beyond the raspberry. So, I guess, the jury is still out on this one. If fruit beer is your thing you’ll probably enjoy this one.

Ice tea or beer? That’s the question. Nice raspberry flavor, but where is the beer? Hardly any sign of the wheat. Nice to drink if you aren’t looking for a beer.

Pours medium yellow with thin off white to pink head. Definitely has raspberries in the aroma, but low on the wheat character. Flavor also low on the wheat. Raspberry is nice and subtle, but there is also an off flavor as well. Not that good, but you could do much worse.

this is a thin beer, no wheat flavor with very little raspberriness to it. There are so many better fruit beers out there. find them
