Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with light notes of raspberry and dish rag. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Mostly inoffensive, but bland and kinda has a little of that dirty dish rag smell that New Belgium Frambozen has.

I had this on my honeymoon in N. O. It seemed like an interesting beer but not much taste. The other Abitas are far better.

Man.. its drinkable, but overall it just seems to me like someone melted a popsicle in a coors... So-so.

This is a cloudy brew with a purple tint to it. Has a raspberry flavor to it and is really nothing special. Over all not a very good brew.

taste like raspberries, not very good. pours out not like anything i would have expected given the fact that its a fruit beer. it looks similar to a hefe. alright, but not what i was anticipating (if anything). sampled at brewgrass 04 on draught.

Yuck. I had to try it being a turbo dog fan, but pretty unimpressive attempt by Abita here. A little too fruity for me. Aftertaste led me to get through this one in as few drinks as possible.

draft at saucer: very little aroma hints of raspberry. the pour was golden with hints of pink. the taste was sweet raspberry some maltiness slightly tart. overy all not that bad but i am not really into fruit beers.

A nice little wheat beer, with the raspberries and all....but...really wheres the raspberries? I love raspberries and I just didnt really find them in this beer...I dont want an overwhelming artifical raspberry taste, but at least something palpable

Enjoyable wheat beer with a smooth, pleasant taste. The fruit taste isnt overdone, and the beer is very pretty when poured.

Man, this stuff is pretty freakin awful. It smells and tastes like grape soda or something similary to it. Definitely doesnt taste like a good beer. Stay the heck away from this stuff.
