Theydon_Bois (18694) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Can at Stouts NYC - for the state tick (in writing), 23/11/13. Hazed dark amber with light reddish hues and a thin off white pond/edgework. Nose is raspeberry forward, sugars, caramel, malty, straw. Taste comprises sweet raspeberry syrup, lightly toasted malts, wheat, sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp finish. Refreshing for what it is I guess - BBQ summer beer perhaps but one would be enough - sweet sweet sweet !

TBone (17049) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2009
Bottled (CK). Hazy dark orange color, small white head. Lightly tart and metallic rasberry aroma. Watery, bland palate. Light fruityness, rasberry seeds flavor, a bit wheaty-grainy. Light sourness, not much, in the finish. Overall very watery and useless.

Light amber; refreshing, but artificial raspberry character. Standard stuff.

yngwie (16879) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2013
On tap at Yard House Houston. Its an unclear golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite boring, with a certain fruity, berry-ish domination. Some malty hints. The flavor pretty much the same, fruits and berries dominates, leaving little room for the malts and hops. Medium buddy, a bit heavy on the carbonation. Fruity finish. Definitely not my kind of fruit beer, even though its not foul on any way. 131114

Slightly redder, but otherwise average wheat beer with hint of raspberry flavor. A little flat and dry. Rated 8/11/04

bhensonb (14888) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Medium raspberry aroma. Hazy orange gold color with no real head. Starts with weak raspberry. Weak body, pumped up a bit as the fizziness fizzes. Weakly sweet. Finish is rather weak raspberry seed. Overall its fairly refreshing. Likely to be good around the pool.

Bottle poured a hazyrose with a large, creamy, long lasting head. Aromas of raspberry, wheat and a bit of yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of raspberries and wheat with a clean, sweet finish.
