On tap at the Office (formerly the Jolley Trolley), Westfield, NJ. Clean lines. Beer pours an opaque beige with a slight purple haze, as expected. Head was thin. The attack is a slightly sour wheat beer, to me it needed to either be more wheaty or more sour. Simple palate with little body, could use more sweetness to balance the sour finish.

A little lean, great fruit aroma. Palate a little off. Drinkable, with ok carbonation. Taste OK.

webbcreative (111) - , Oklahoma, USA - FEB 6, 2009
cloudy orange. 2 finger head. smells like malt liquor, like a 40 oz. taste, the same except with raspberry syrup added. has an unpleasant twang. i believe i will pass on this one in the future. i dont believe i would even take one for free. well not if there was any other option available that is.

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2006
Orange and hazy in appearance with very white creamy head. You can really smell the raspberries- the problem is that it reminds me of a wine cooler. The taste is the same- too much raspberries not enough beer. A little chalky feeling, but very drinkable.

tilldeath (109) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2006
light head, fruity aroma, almost grapefruit color, sweet at first with subtle wheat flavor, little to no finish, if your lookiing for a wheat beer this isnt it, but if youre looking for a light fruity beer I enjoyed it.

a rasberry flavored wheat beer with a sweet and underpowered hops and malt characteristic.

BrockLandersLS (109) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 3, 2002
The name of course is the shee-ot. Otherwise I think this is a pretty good bear. I like a little more taste but this beer has a subtle raspberry flavor that isnt overly sweet and sugary tasting. A good choice.

Bottle. Dark golden hazy pour w/ little lacing. Nothing about this offering overpowers you, which is some aspects is a good thing. I like to mix these in my cooler every once in awhile just for something different. Goes down smooth and easy.

Pale pink fruit beer with an intense fruity aroma, a light raspberry flavour, very weak and watery, no finish to speak of. Someone buy these guys a plane ticket to Belgium.
