12oz bottle pours a pale copper with a large off-white head. Aroma of fresh raspberries and malt, simple yet pleasent. Taste is very mellow, malt and wheat work well together to incorporate a well balanced raspberry flavor that is not overpowering. A bit of a yogurt flavor and texture. Im not a huge fan of fruit beers but this one is pretty decent.

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

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.

Pours a ruddy amber from a bottle, sweetish aroma, biscuity sweet flavor, not picking up on a lot of raspberry per se. Meh.

Bottled pours opaque orange, raspberry-tinged, creamy white head. Aroma is raspberry, light beer, light malt bill. Flavor is corn, kinda cardboardy, light raspberry, but also kinda refreshing. Doesnt really taste like anything. Raspberry seltzer. Its fine, good summer beer. My dad likes this.

12 oz bottle: bought for a laugh, sadly it didnt make me laugh one bit. BB 21st Apr 17, drank on 28th Jan 17 as I watched the sun set from my Son-in-Laws patio in Orange County, California. Murky, dirty orange pour, no head, just a thin collar around the glass. Intense raspberry aroma, red berries and tartness in the taste, yet with an underlying sweetness too. Really struggled to finish the beer: not my thing at all.

Ok. Bottle from Steve, because his father-in-law brought it and I imagine he didnt want to finish the sixer. Aroma is fake raspberry, metallic, wheat, very harsh. Appearance is reddish dark golden, off white head, hazy. Taste is bad. Budweiser with fake raspberries in it. Metallic. Wheat. Awful. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, metallic Budweiser aftertaste. Overall, terrible.

Very light on flavor. Practically zero aroma to speak of. This is a chick drink for girls that cant handle the intensity of Mikes hard black cherry.
