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.

omhper (24645) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2008
Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy pale amber, average head. Tart raspberry aroma. Dryish, light and clean. Though simple its drinkable and refreshing. No bitterness. A well made beer in a pointless style.

Leighton (20640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2010
UPDATED: APR 20, 2010 Tap at Ulysses. Not bad at all. Pours a light, orange-red with a foamy white head. Wheat nose with slight hints of raspberry and yeast. Flavor is very bready, with some mild malty sweetness and fruity tartness. Light to medium in body, well carbonated and pretty crisp. If you like fruit and/or wheat beers, this will be right up your alley.
