COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Am American wheat beer made from a blend of malted barley and malted wheat with a touch of raspberries. This popular beer is flavored with pure fruit to impart a subtle raspberry nose, a delicate fruit flavor and a slight pink hue.

out of growler...reddish golden body with tiny head...aroma is of grass and raspberry...flavor is very grassy as well, with some raspberry sugars...aftertaste of cereal (TRIX!!!)...okay palate

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Gaylord location, from a fresh growler. Straw-golden body, thick off-white head. Soapy wet hay aroma with hints of tart raspberry, but not dominant or overwhelming. Grassy, earthy body with that same wet hay characteristic, light sweetness with subdued raspberry notes. Thin-bodied, light. Bitter earthy aftertaste. The different elements don’t seem to come together too well.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Draft at brewery: Transparent pink/amber with a white fizzling and diminishing head. Aroma was exactly what I expected, syrupy raspberries with no complexity what so ever. Flavor offered up a little more but not much, rapsberries (though no as syrupy as I was expecting), and some piney hops in the background. Well carbonated lively mouthfeel.

Pailhead (6540) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2005
On tap: Real light raspberry aroma, and that could be only because I expected one. A little dirty wash cloth in there. Light hazy amber with an off-white head with a yellow tinge. Flavor is very light raspberry. Watered down. Light hops in the finish. Too light, even for a wheat.

I was excited about this, as I tend to like raspberry brews. however, this one i was not impressed with. it just felt like it was missing something... really watered down, not much flavor.

Tap: Amber lager in color with no head. Couldn’t get any raspberry aroma only a slight malty aroma. Watery/thin body. Only a slight hint of raspberry in the taste. Not meaty enough for a wheat. Overall below average wheat.

Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2003
Light color, slightly cloudy, nice thin head (nitro induced?). Raspberry hangs with it for a while, then a later bitter aftertaste. Slightly watery, but I like this reasonably well. (on tap, Grapevine, TX location)

Panzuriel (2256) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2002
A nice refreshing Wheat beer with a hint of raspberries that is not overpowering, but is certainly present. Very interesting beer. Not for a non-raspberry fan.

Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2002
A nice fruity beer, great color! This makes a great compliment certain foods, can lead to nasty flavor combinations if not careful! The filtering leaves this a lot clearer then one would expect. Little or no aftertaste, a refreshing change from other fruity types.

Andrew196 (1902) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2002
Interesting beer....I have never seen thic color in a beer, it was a misty pink/beige. Fruity beginning. Pleasant raspberry/malt flavor. Not very complex but quaffable.
