Sampled on our Great Lakes beer tour. Smells like a raspberry bubblebath. Light raspberry flavor. This beer is uncomplicated by malt and hops. On the plus side, it is not infected. frankenkitty (2014) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Served a pinkish/vermillion under wispy white (not offensive to look at, but what ’’beer’’ looks like this, really?) Strong berries off the top, nutty late. Weird grainy fruit flavor, Trix/Frankenberry combo. I can’t approve of this.

Courtesy of stfun. Pours amber and hazy with a white head. Smells of raspberries. Tastes of tarte fresh raspberryes. Not much else to say. The raspberries are at the forefront and taste like fresh raspberries in a wheat beer. Very nice! xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2008
12 oz bottle from party chalet in goshen, IN. First question out of GF’s mouth, "why is my beer orange?". That was a farely accurate description of the color, but with a pink tinge and with small lasting white/off-pink head. Very candy raspberry aroma with still a solid malt backbone, not as bad as people have made it out to be, maybe a fresher bottle/newer recipe. Cough syrup flavor though with rich raspberries, malt and some spice. Nice medium creamy body. Surprisingly nice and not grainy like a lot mediocre fruit beers, I ALSO think it has a beat and you can dance to it. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 Pours red with small fizzy head and slight spotty lacing. Banana and raspberries on the nose. Nice fruity flavor, slightly watery.

hazy dark yellow, creamy white head, lots of tiny bubbles, plenty of drippy lace,
strong tart raspberry aroma with a touch of sweetness,
light tart flavor with a good combination between wheat and raspberry tartness, just a hint of raspberry other than the tartness, dry finish,
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 9/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy, bright yellow body with a fizzy, pink-tinged head.
Smell: Raspberry extract aroma.
Taste: Raspberries with a light, sweet graininess. A cloying, candyish finish, but thankfully it goes away quickly enough. In both the aroma and taste, the raspberry flavor seems conspicuously artificial.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Watery and oh-so fizzy.
Drinkability: It was a chore to finish, but I won in the end. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Pours a transparent effervescent bronze with an airy white head. Aroma of fresh, sweet sugary raspberries and a touch of pale malt. Body starts with s light malty sweetness and decent fruity raspberry character with some tart fruity balance toward a fairly clean, bittersweet finish. The raspberry flavor is pretty well done here. patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2007
bottle - Pours hazy orange with lots and lots of raspberry in the aroma and very little head. The flavor is sweet and full of berries. The body is light and a little watery. All in all this beer is quite mediocre. kozfromupnort (19) - goshen, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle. Nice white head that dimminished quickly. fair lacing. not much wheat in the aroma just raspberry. This translatted to the flavor as well. a very waterey mouth feel. The moderate bitter finish saved the beer. It does cut the dust on a hot day, and that is what I look for in a wheat
