On tap from Shoreline Bev. This beer poured a color similar to a deep rose wine with a moderate fizzy pink head that quickly receded to a thin ring. Very nice aroma of raspberries. The flavor is also mostly raspberries, but they do not overpower as in some fruit beers. Light on the palate and very refreshing, this beer is simple, as it should be. Another job well done by Phil Markowski.

Spunkier than I expected, Ill give it that. The people around us seemed to love this beer, though I wasnt whisked away into a field of raspberry glory. A little bitter, like raspberry seeds. Good though. Probably would not order a pint of this.

Tap at SPH. 8.21.06 Had a pretty nice raspberry flavor. A genuine wheaty/raspberry one. A nice balance. "No fakey.", said we.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2006
Tap at SPH. Pink tinted golden beer with a thin white head. Sweet raspberry aroma over a backnote of bready malts and some peppery character as well. Flavour is quite good, unlike many fruit beers, its not cloyingly sweet rather letting the acidity of the fruit shine through. Bright raspberry flavour comes through. Well-balanced with loads of fruity flavour on display over a lightly bready base.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2005
Strong, tart, fresh raspberries in the aroma with strong underlying wheat. Clear burgundy red body with a decent cover of fine bubbled white head that recedes to ring with some spotty lacing. Wheat flavour is strong with plenty of pleasantly tart fruitiness. Light body with lively carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2008 Tap from Half time with spkldhenlvr24 in May 2005. Pours a perfect red color with a reddish off white head. Smells bursting of sugars and fruits (mixed berry smell.) Beautiful balance of fruits and wheats. No alcohol taste at all almost like drinking a juice. Extremley clean from start to finish. Almost like a lambic without the champagne qualities. I ABSOLUTLEY LOVED THIS BEER!!

on tap at the Spuyten Duyvil. cloudy, ruddy pinkish copper color, short off-white pinkish head. tangy/yeasty strong raspberry aroma. flavor is tangy wheat malt and lots of raspberry - not too dry, not too sweet. well balanced fruit. sparkly carbonation, dryish finish. lots of fun!

Belle couleur rougetre, semi translucide. Mousse persistante, blanche concasse lgrement tachete de rose. Armes de framboises, jus de framboise non sucr et de bl. Lgre et neutre, pas beaucoup de got, aucunement tartrique ni sucr, touche de framboise semble naturelle, aucune tricherie ici. Finale sche et quelque peu rugueuse, corps dpaisseur semi mince. Dans lensemble, trs propre, accessible et dpourvu de dfi gustatif. Servi en ft, Southampton SHPH, N.Y., Septembre 2005.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Draft at the Publick House. Creamy white head tops the clear ruby-pink hue. Rather simple and straightforward fruit beer where the flavours revolve around the grainy malts and jammy, slightly soapy remotely intense, yet definitely accessible raspberry essence. Unspiced and so simple that you get bored a bit upon tasting, wishing for more wildness, more funk, more originality, but this is, as with all SH beers, clean, not too sweet, not too dry, not too tart (not much at all unfortunately for the latter). Small-bubbled carbonation punctuates the thin watery body. 8% wow, it felt like 5.

A very nice color to this beer - bright, dark pink (magenta) with a dainty white head. Very dry, with no sweetness whatsoever. The rasberry flavor is less a "flavor" but an "essence", like youd find in rasberry-flavored seltzer water. The flavor is somewaht thin, but its not bad. Overall, an average wheat beer. with a fruity twist.
