3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Jackie O’s.
Reddish pink in color and it has a big aroma dominated by.. raspberry... obviously. Flavor is a citrus/raspberry mix that starts off sweet and ends in a tart crisp finish. A very good fruit beer. I can see why so many people in the pub were drinking this.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample glass on tap at Jackie-O’s. Pours cloudy pinkish in color with a soft off white head. Smells of candied rassberries and slightly wheaty. Tastes as it smells, with a prominant sweet and tart rassberry flavor, followed by a gentle wheat malt flavor.

Public house draft at a bottle release. Pretty nice fruit beer with a nice dose of hops too. I liked that you could tell the berries were real and not just some chemical syrup. Felt like you could taste some pulp to the berries.

On tap at Winking Lizard on Bethel. Amber pour, bright white head. Aroma of expected raspberry and wheat. Tastes are ripe fruit, grass, strawberry. Easy drinking. We’d been drinking hoppy brew all night so this was a pleasant change up. - 7.2

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 12 oz can in Dublin Ohio.
Orange Amber color with a hint of red and a decent head.
Pronounced and appealing raspberry aroma with some pancakes in the background.
Much more wheat and other grain flavor upon tasting. The raspberry is still obvious but in good balance.
O: excellent for style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 10/10/2016. Pours very hazy pinkish golden/orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of lightly tart raspberry, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with lighter notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, fruit, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart raspberry, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with lighter notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, pepper, honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate yeast spiciness and light herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raspberry, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, pepper, clove, light banana/bubblegum, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, fruit, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a good malt/tart/spiciness balance, and slight lingering astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitter/spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin on body. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a good fruited American pale wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, fruit, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A little too oddly spicy/drying with slight lingering astringency; but still very drinkable and nicely enjoyable for the style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish brown appearance, like what I’d expect a ruby red grapefruit juice to look like. Bonus, the head was actually pink-colored! I’ve never encountered that before. Aroma does not disappoint, with a full raspberry taste in the nose upfront and a medium gently fading finish. Taste is slightly sweet and sour, much like a grapefruit juice that kind of seems appropriate for the beer. Crisp palate and texture, a little thin feeling, maybe too sharply carbonated but satisfying. However interesting this beer may be, though, I couldn’t imagine drinking more than one. For me, it’s a novelty... It goes down easy, but it’s not heavily drinkable due to the strong fruit flavor.

This poured a cloudy cloudy light amber color with a pinkish hued head. Aroma was of a nice amount tart raspberries, and wheaty yeast character. Flavor was a nice blend of tart raspberry, not artificial at all, and wheat spice and yeast. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewhouse. Cloudy pink in color white a big foamy white head. Strong aroma of raspberries with some hints of grain. Refreshing and crisp on the palate with a sweet/tart raspberry upfront taste and some wheat on the back end. Overall a descent summer beer that was quite enjoyable, but in small doses.
