Shanebrews' rating

This is essentially a wine cooler. The aroma is is medicinal with a hint of tart, under-ripened fruit. The appearance is reminiscent of a V-8 splash, a bit pulpy and sort of a cloudy juice color. The malt gives more wheat character than anything else, with the thin crispness of the berries at the end. I find the body much to light to support the fruitiness of the beer. Overall, better than Shock Top Raspberry but not something I will buy again.

Bottle from Publix Supermarket, Lexington, South Carolina. Hazy amber with a thinnish head. Its raspberry is dominant and a little sour in its finish. Lingers long in its aftertaste.

Hazy copperish hue with a tiny white ring of foam. Very faint bready semisweet nose. Smooth semisweet bready flavor that’s not very fruity. Pretty plain and whatever.

A great citrus flavor with a twist. I'm an IPA fan so it had a great flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty good and refreshing. The raspberry isn't super over powering and adds a nice flavor to the beer. -Box ��

Bottle bought from supermarket during business trip to Old town Alexandria, Washington DC May 2017. Not great! Definitely purple haze. Ok aroma of raspberry. But taste is bland. Not memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Originally rated on 2/15/09. Purple haze poured a nice looking hazy golden -orange hued body, with a decent cap and fair lace. The rest was kinda down hill, with the aromas being of malt and incredibly faint raspberries. Flavor wasnt very good with only the raspberry bitterness showing instead of the taste of berries. As it warmed it took on a funky taste of old malts. Overall it wasnt very good

Trübes gelb schöner schaum, im geruch etwas getreidig ganz leicht Himbeere, im Geschmack irgendwie wässrig ganz wenig frucht aber auch kaum herb, etwas malzig getreidig, enttäuschend

MrTipple (4780) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2017
Wheat and cereal malts, lots of raspberries, yeast. Hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. More wheat and other grain malts, more raspberries, subtle, light dry sweetness, soft carbonation, light bodied. Not too bad Wheat, nice dry raspberries in the finish. Bottle at CBR17, Shoreditch.

Bottle. Pours a reddish golden color with white head. Raspberry, sweet, fruity, slight straw aromas. Raspberry, fruity, sweet jam, straw flavors. Pretty simple and straight forward fruit beer.

1.9
Quick3Beers (1199) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Pours a ruddy amber from a bottle, sweetish aroma, biscuity sweet flavor, not picking up on a lot of raspberry per se. Meh.
