On [email protected] Grand Lodge. Hazy, pale pink body with a thin white head. Moderate fruity aroma of berries, actually a bit artificial. Flavor is light and fruity, like strawberry and watermelon in an almost bubblegum type flavor. It’s suppose to be real fruit and probably is, but for me it tasted like a light blonde with a dash of fruit syrup.

Poured on draft at six arms brewery in Seattle. Tastes like a pile of flowers and a raspberry basket. Average at Best

Cloudy yellowish with slight red hue. Wheaty aroma with raspberry essence. Flavor is more of the same. Raspberries taste natural. Tart and wheaty. A nice fruit beer

Smells more like sour funk than raspberries with some wheat as well. This is pretty wheaty with some sweetness to it but not too much raspberry. Not that good.

Hazy gold color with a light creamy head . The aroma is very light, almost non-existant, a touch of raspberry, but it could be discounted easily. Finishes lightly malty and surprisingly good. Almost no flavor here. A run of the mill cookie cutter franchise micro, eh.

Light raspberry color. Light bodied wheat ale, infused with a raspberry flavor. Fruit flavor is mild and subtle, very slightly sweet. Malts are mild and slightly hoppy. Interesting taste. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

This is one of my favorite beers in the thre whole beer drning world. This beer goes down awsome and tastes so good. The flarvor is full all the way through from start to finish. I love the undertones and the small hint of Raspberries. Hey McMenamins can I have the recipie? Great beer. ALso try the Rubinator a mix between this and the Terminator stout it is awesome.

One of my favorites from the lineup, smooth, light and drinkable. Nice full body, similar to German Hefe , slick and smooth. Sweet juice essence makes it refreshing.

On tap at the Kennedy School pub. Funky pinky orange hazy color that reminded me of soda pop. Thin white head. It was very lively on the palate, like a berry flavored pop. Light and fruity. I don’t like light and fruity.

Draught in a flight at the Mill Creek brewpub. Pours a very cloudy copper color. Nose is light, with a little bit of berry coming through. Taste is slightly sweet, with a lot of grains and malt in there, but effectively no fruit taste. Which is odd for a fruit beer...
