12.19.04 12oz bottle. Golden color with light pinkish head that fizzes to nothing. Berry aromas and some vegetal qualities that turn more malty and sweet with temp. Flavors are simple, sweet, grassy, pear, and I guess I can force some berry flavor...but something is rotten. I guess its not a bad bottle as I see some other raters have noted an off flavor, too. When I can ignore that, the beer is drinkable, but lame.

I really like a raspberry, but it is clear from this beer that they should not be mixed. The guy that introduced me to this site said this was his favorite beer, not just by Abita, but all-around. What was he thinking?

This beer is way too sweet. For a company that makes a decent ale (Turbodog), this beer is a disappointment. It reminds me of a drink from my mispent youth which consisted of koolaid mixed with grain alcohol. eeew.

On Tap: I dont know about this beer. It poured a creamy peach color with no head. It tastes like fruit and wheat....just like its supposed to . It left me with no noticable aftertaste and left me not wanting another one.

A hard one to get used to. Ive had this a few times now, always only get it at the Mellow Mushroom. Flowery aroma, light brandy color. Cloudy and thin head. Bit on the fizzy side, flowery taste, subtle sweetness. Gentle sweet aftertaste.

Not too impressed. This tastes like a wheat beer with fruit extract dumped in - which, I see from the commercial description, is pretty much what it is. Although it claims to use raspberry puree, it tasted pretty artificial and jammy to me. The appearance was cloudy, orangey in colour - looked a bit like a cider. And the aroma was OK - I detected lots of raspberry and lots of other floral and fruity hints - banana, heather, lavender, honey. But it all went downhill once I tasted the stuff. Very odd sweet and sour notes intrude. The fruit and the wheat dont seem well integrated. Soft and flabby finish. On tap at the Green Leafe Cafe, Williamsburg VA.

whew, i just dont know about this one! Hey I like Hendrix as much as the next guy but this beer is too far out for me. Although i appreciate the uniqueness...is this beer infused or what? Its not too fake tasting, loved the hazy cloudy color, refreshing too. In the right mood i could probably really enjoy it. I would have probably loved this beer in high school.

A very dense white head tops a cloudy and golden body. Aroma has lemons and a touch of the raspberries. The taste was definitely raspberries with a refreshing wheat finish. I actualy like this more than most American wheats. A nice summer brew. Funny that I like this so much considering that I detest cherry wheats.

Cloudy orange body, thin off-white head. Tangy wheat aroma, some bitter earthy elements, and light raspberry. Flavor is tangy and somewhat soapy with wheat and light raspberry; this beer reminds me of a raspberry-flavored sparkling water. Weak body, highly carbonated.
