2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not very impressive. Pale amber with some reddish highlights. Light aroma of wheat and raspberry. Somewhat watery palate. The flavor is only slightly better than the aroma. Malty and wheat smoothness with some artificial raspberry up front leads to a somewhat bitter finish. Fairly refreshing, but nothing too exciting.
Bottle - good size foamy head, hazy medium straw color, mild raspberry aroma and flavor, not too overpowering, good wheat backbone, mildly yeasty spice finish, not bad overall

12floz bottle (BOD: 03.22.2017) that is a spring and summer seasonal, not a "winter seasonal". Appears a dark hazy gold in the light, and more peach colored when not. There is not any raspberry detectable in the nose, but it does have that characteristic wheaty husk grain aroma. Saltine cracker with a splash of raspberry flavors noted on the light and crisp palate. I used to avoid this beer, and still will bypass it; however, it is not too bad. alobar (3864) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Cloudy orange copper pour with aroma of raspberry and grain.Raspberry flavor with some grain. Refreshing beer. Braudog (6793) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle. I’m generally not a fan of this style, just a disclaimer. But this is actually kinda pleasant. Hazy orange-amber, thin top. The raspberry component is both dominant, yet pleasantly interwoven into a solid, not too sweet American wheat. Props. (#6342, 9/29/2016) Pumpkin87 (248) - - JUN 11, 2016
Pours a cloudy peach with medium off-white head with a hint of rose, which leaves some lacing and skim.
The color suggests pink grapefruit juice with a head, and the nose also hints at that, with a tart noted complementing the usual wheat and spice.
On the palate, the raspberries are tart and ride on top instead of overpowering the underlying wheat, mild banana and subdued clove notes.
In short, this is a light summer beer, mildly sweet but with tart fruit providing a refreshing tang.
The finish is drier than suggested by the foregoing, and with more grass than fruit. Despite that, this is nice seasonal offering.

DATE: June 4, 2016... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen... OCCASION: chilling and grilling with the boys after two baseball wins... pours an extremely cloudy tan body that reveals some sediment at the glass’;s bottom and variably sized bubbles... opaque otherwise... head is a thick two fingers that settles to a soapy white bowl... clear banana with some tart raspberry and wheat esters that suggest earthiness... sharp, tart immediacy that sours the aftertaste for an appreciable time... on second sip, the banana and hay come through, mellowing the impact of the raspberry puree... refreshing and forward, with a larger flavor than 4.1% ABV would suggest... slight lacing in the glass... the suggestion of cracker at its end would suggest malts? effervescent and spritzy in its palate, like an Italian soda... I could easily reach for this if summer slamming was on the party menu, if not for the tartness that does not relent as the glass drains... some candied suggestions leave the finish of the bottle with a medicinal quality... a palpable graininess rounds off the experience, and I am left thinking this is somewhere between styles... okay for a surprise in a craft box 12-off, but not one I would seek out.... p0rkch0p (126) - Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Color is kidney stone urine. But the taste is mild fruity sweetness. Perfect for a sampler run.

12 ounce bottle. Cloudy orange gold color. Medium sized creamy white head. Raspberry and lemon wheat malt aroma. Flavor is wheat malt and raspberry. Very light body and flavor. A good option on a hot day, but rather insipid. topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2016
Pours lightly pink. Like thin red grapefruit juice. Aroma is tart, light raspberry. Flavor is tart american style wheat with a nice bit of raspberry. Easy to drink and not overly sweet with fake fruit. bubblehouse (1549) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 1, 2016
Smells and tastes a little like raspberry flavored seltzer water. It grew on me as we drank it.
