Pours copper with a thin white head. Nose is mostly malt with some cereal notes and hints of grass and raspberry. Light body. The taste is reasonably balanced. Not a favorite, but I wouldn't turn it down.

Random beer flight in bar harbor. Golden smal head. Nose is faint fruit and yeast. Tastes of yeast, pale malt, hops and some raspberry but luckily not syrup garbage. More beer than some fruity nonsense but unremarkable. ClarkVV (6893) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2016

Haven’t had much luck with shelf bottles from Hidden Cove, but this one poured a bright, lightly-to-minimally hazy copper-yellow with a strong raspberry hues to it. Off-white head atop is large and slowly falls to cover. Sediment left behind in the bottle.
Raspberry is not overdone in the nose and comes off light, peppery and softly fruity, quite authentic and adding light acidity to balance the soft, biscuity/wheaty malts. Seemingly nicely attenuated and with no alcohol or flaw. Just a simple, easygoing fruit beer for the Summer, it seems. Didn’t really get any Belgian characteristics.
Very soft, pulp and wheat-like texture with moderate, fairly tight carbonation and a slight, enjoyable graininess from the malts, as well. Good attenuation and a peppery, lightly fruity, very well-attenuated raspberry character to it. Very easy, refreshing drinking and it still retains a good body and structure (ie. isn’t just raspberry seltzer).
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is copper-amber with a modest white head. Raspberry is muted but I do pick up some pale toasted malts in the aroma. A touch of grass. Light to medium body. The taste highlights the pale malt bready character than the the raspberry but it is easy to drink. Finishes clean
