Bottle from Belmont Package In Fort Wayne. Poured hazy amber with average frothy off-white head. Average aroma of wheat and raspberry. Medium body with sticky texture. Heavy sweet raspberry flavor with a good finish. ClarkVV (6956) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 4, 2004
2004 MBG Fest. Pours a light copper tinged white/pink with some foamy white head. Smells sweet and lightly yeasty. Lots of fructose in there (rasberries are used to brew this one). True to the aroma, it’s got quite the impressive amount of raspberries. Very apparent throughout the beer. Plenty of sweet malt, medium bodied with a light bitterness coming from the hops towards the finish. Plenty of raspberry lingers on the finish. Good balance of sweet/tart but just not much else going on here besides the raspberry flavor. Body is lightly chewy with the wheat noticeable. As far as raspberry wheats go, this one is the best example I’ve had (not saying much). Don’t know why they call it a wit, didnt find any belgian wit characteristics.

Bottled and sampled in my New Belguim Worthy glassware: Pours a reddish amber hue with a fading fizzy head, lots of floaties (beware), and little lace. The aroma has notes of raspberry syrup, floral hops, bready malts, and a hint of wheat. The taste starts fruity as expected but is neither over-the-top or syrupy as I was fearing, quite nice and refreshing honestly. I get a nice dose of bitters on the finish and an undertone of wheatbread. There is NO notice of a wit however, no spice detected. The feel is fizzy and chalky, okay. A different beer for sure, unique and much better than the Kuhnhenn Tangerine Wit I had a few weekends ago. Still don’t expect to much from this beer. (This bottle is also available in the Summer Sampler in Indiana, I got it as a single) Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2005
Bottle: Okay, not off to a good start when I open the bottle and the beer shoots all over the wall and on my keyboard. Aroma is rasberry with some light wheat characteristics. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a small slightly off-white head and a decent amount of sediment. Rasberry syrup from start to finish with maybe the slightest bit of hops in the finish. Don’t get any wheat characteristics in the flavor. A nice refreshing thirst quencher and somewhat tastey. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2005
I’m sorry, but the fruit flavoring was just way too artificial tasting for me, regardless of their using a raspberry puree. The nose and the taste were like overly sweet candy. Looks nice, a dark amber with a tall, well sustained off-white head.

Murky copper color with disconcerting floaties in it. This bottle was very carbonated. It was all I could do to pour it into the glass, and while my back was turned the foam extruded out of the top of the bottle. The aroma didn’t bother me too much. It was not as artificial as most, and it was like berry scented cotton candy. This is a very sweet beer, with lots of white sugar, and a berry flavor like the syrup that they use to make snow cones. The over-carbonation was distracting on the tongue. A little bit of this goes a long way. patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 7, 2007
bottle - Pours a ridiculously huge head. I was able to keep from losing any beer as the bottle didn’t overflow on me like some experienced, but it took several stages to finish pouring this beer. It’s pink with a mess of small yeast floaters. The head leaves some lacing. The aroma is very much of raspberry with some yeast in there as well. The flavor is dominated by raspberry. It’s sweet with some mild hops in there that comes through more in the finish. It’s light and refreshing, but avoids being watery, unlike a couple other raspberry wheats beers I’ve had recently. It’s far from my favorite style, but really this brew is a pretty good fruit beer. hershiser2 (3821) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2005
Bottle. Open the bottle and it "ejaculates" all over me, the carpet, table, and everything else within reach. OK, maybe I shook it? No, same thing happens with the next bottle which had been chilling for hours and was removed very carefully from the fridge. Anyway, aroma is sweet wheat, with hints of raspberry candy. Flavor is kinda bland... and tastes more like artificial flavoring than fruit. Silphium (3224) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Hazy orange-red body, medium off-white/light pink head. Light, biscuity aroma with raspberry syrup notes, little to no wit character noted. Bitter, somewhat spicy flavor with raspberry skin (thus, the beer isn’t necessarily sweet) and a touch of herbal/floral hops, rather tea-like and a touch soapy, characteristics of several Arcadia beers. Summer fruit beers are about as tired as summer wheat beers... Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Relatively hefty for a beer like this - you can actually tell it’s a wheat beer and not some indistinct ale, better than Dark Horse’s raspberry. Cloudy. Aroma nd tast of raspberry. On tap at Cascarelli’s in Homer, MI, a great little pizza and beer place.
