tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - JUL 11, 2007
bottle. clear light golden with minimal head. flavor is malty biscuit with light bitter finish. the raspberry aroma and flavor has an artificial character and overwhelms the taste. reminds me of aspartame or some artificial sweetener. a sub-par fruit beer for sure.

Bottle. Ultra-clear amber with a medium head. Aroma of raspberries and light-sweet malt. It tastes like my wifes favorite beer, I imagine.

muzzlehatch (4876) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2007
12 ounce bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY (June 2007), served from a Unibroue glass at just slightly above fridge temperature. Pours a pale, quite clear gold with very little head and no retention or lacing to talk about....pretty typical fruit-lite nose, hints of wheaty sourness but all in all like a watery soda....aaaaaand guess what this impression pretty much carries through in the flavor department, though some nice biscuity malt and a touch of tartness save it a bit; the fruit seems pretty artificial, dry and dessicated....mouthfeel is ok, body isnt as thin as I might expect. Still, Im about to give up on this brewery; a few really solid products, but most of what Ive had lately could have been made by just anybody.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours golden with a decent size white head. Aroma of raspberries, grain, and hops. The flavor is raspberry, citrus, slight sweetness upfront, and finishes lightly bitter.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Pale straw colored with a quickly dissipating thin white head. Aroma dominated by sweet raspberry and a bit of biscuit erases my hopes that this might be on the tart side. Flavor, as expected, is mostly sweet raspberries, a touch of biscuity malt, and a very small amount of hops bitterness detectable on the back of the throat in the finish. Decent enough, but as Shadey said, we all know the demographic they are going after with this one.

shadey (2084) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Pour is a clear golden color with a quickly diminishing head that reduces to only a tiny circle of micro-bubbles. Aroma is light raspberry but nothing else. The raspberry is far less attractive here than in something from say new glarus. The flavor is equally disappointing. I think southern tier is a great brewery, but this beer has a very well-known target demographic. This is the stereotypical "chic beer". They took a normal old watery, heavily filtered, sweet wheat beer and added a hint of sweet fruitiness to make it more attractive to those who typically dont like beer. Very disappointing.

cheap (5417) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 On tap at the Bocktown. Ubiquitous pale yellow american lager appearance. Slight raspberry aroma, makes this smell attractive. Creamy white head. Sure has a raspberry flavor but it certainly is not sweet. More bitter than I expected. Quite the same as many below average fruit beers Ive had. This stuff is not hazy and I cant taste any wheat so I am left wondering if there is actually any wheat in there. This taste more like the commercial description than the name on the bottle, a fruit flavored malt beverage. There is some kind of industrial bitterness in there but I cannot distinguish it as malt or hops, just bitter. Too much for a wheat beer. Less than I expected. Lancaster strawberry wheat is much better than this.

DocLock (10085) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Bottle from Capones. Medium gold pour with a big raspberry aroma, some hopcit, and some pale malt. The flavor, complexity, and body are lacking in this. Some raspberry and slight pale malt and hopcitrus are in the flavor. Probably the worst brew ive had from these guys.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2007
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Pale yellow color with a soapy white head. Aroma smells like fresh raspberries with some hops underneath. Smells very nice. Flavor is very sour and grassy with some metal. No raspberry in the flavor whatsoever. Smells great, but the flavor is lacking.

blankboy (7354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2007
Draught at Coles in Buffalo, NY. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma is big-time raspberries and not much else, almost like a raspberry cooler -- it smells fine but nothing like a beer. Tastes like raspberry flavoured water with a light bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. I dont mind a good Fruit Beer but this does nothing for me.
