Bottle. Cloudy light pink with a lively bubbly white head. Aroma is sour raspberries, dusty yeast, minerally undertones. Flavour is all under-ripe raspberries, wheat, yoghurt, light yeast. Finish is very crisp and dry, quite tart and acidic. Nothing sweet at all about this fruit beer-- very genuine, refreshing, light. Very good.

This is my favorite McMenamins beer. Its fruity and refreshing. Its great for summer drinking, watching live music, soaking in a McMenamins tub or otherwise running around one of their adult playgrounds.

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.

A nice fruit beer. Heaps of raspberries. Clean and refreshing. Could guzzle it like water. Definitely not your typical beer, but a nice change of pace nonetheless.

Light pink, strawberries and wheat, semi-tart flavor, some biting yeast flavors. Peppy, better than the average fruity beer... the tartness being the main reason.

On tap @ McMenamins Barley Mill. Hazed orange-pink-red pour with a creamy white head. Bready malt mixed with slightly tangy berry. Dehydrated raspberry and some pretty decent cereal notes. The flavor is kind of tangy and also a bit sweet. Maybe some vanilla and bread dough. A little soda-like. Pretty nice.
