Hazy golden hue with small head and minimal lacing. Some wheat aromatics with an very minor raspberry hint. Weird taste, almost sour and spicey, no real hop or malt characteristics to be found. Very acidic finish. Watery and fizzy mouthfeel. Not recommended unless severely drunk at Mardi Gras while in Nawleans.

Pale hazy golden straw color. Maybe a touch of white head. Initial taste is. . .bland. Though it wasnt bad tasting, just a regular wheat flavor, not very strong. I had to wait for the flavor to hit, which didnt hit hard. More like a light honey/malt flavor than a raspberry flavor in the body. As the beer finishes, the flavor again exits. It is an even flavored beer, not bad, just nothing distinct at all.

Interesting. Tasted like rasberry seltzer water. No real beer flavor, but if was thirsty and not really wanting a beer this would be a pleasent suprise. whether that is good or not I don't know

Color is cloudy pale yellow, white fizzy head faded fast leaving a skim of whisper light white haze on top that stuck around the whole glass and had some very small spotty lace. Smell is mostly wheat, pretty sharp with a very slight note of raspberry. Taste completely mirrors the smell with lots of malted wheat, a tad breadish with a ever so slight presense of raspberry. Has a zesty sweet sharpness thats dulled a bit at the start and then airs out with a mellow smoothness. Feel is light to medium bodied, a bit zesty and grainy. not bad, drinkable, ya sure, but where's the raspberry?

Pours a light and murky amber color with a medium off-white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is raspberries of course, but really nothing else. It might have something to do with the fact that I was building a deck in almost 90 degree temperatures, but I found this to be pretty easy to drink. Light bodied and very crisp, and fortunately the raspberry flavor is not as overwhelming as it is in other beers of this type. Clean finish. Nothing award-winning in my book but a passable summer beer.

Had it at the RFD in Washington, DC. This is pretty bad. Imagine drinking a run of the mill wheat beer while chewing a fat wad of fruit bubblicious. Yep, its disgusting and so is this beer!

Trix are for kids...NOT for beer. This is so nasty. It has a bad lager and Trix cereal nose and taste. Don't go near this one. One of the worst I've tried!

Barely palatteable, acidic, sour and artifical. . . nothing I would ever want to put in my mouth again.

OK...this one looks like grapefruit juice with a white head. Not an attractive brew. Nose is very light wheat...almost non-existant. I'm starting to wonder if my bottle is bad...I can't even catch a HINT of the raspberry...tastes only like a very light wheat beer. Not much at all to this one...

The only thing hazy in this beer was the chance of raspberry flavor. It smells like a bad lager + raspberry. In my mouth it left the taste of bran cereal. Definately a weird one.
