In the bottle at the HyVee Oktoberfest beer tasting in Council Bluffs. Pours the color of grapefruit juice. Thin fleeting pink head. Yummy aroma of raspberries and grapefruit. Strawberry and cherry flavors. Chalky finish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Bottled) Hazy pink-orange color with a medium, fading, white head and some lace. Candy-sweet, acidic aroma of raspberries (with stones). Sweet raspberry flavor is slightly better than the aroma, as it doesn’t have the acidity. Still it’s been raped badly by artificial sweetening (aspartame!). Light-bodied, lemonadey-carbonated, but quite smooth palate. I guess it’s drinkable, if you like lemonade - but if you’re after a real fruit beer, keep on looking...

Bottle. Pink red hazy color with a nice reddish head. A wheat beer with raspberry.
Aroma and tast is raspberry and wheat malt. Very light mouthfeel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
What a foul beverage. In the description here it lists some fine things, but on the bottle if you read the ingredients it also lists artificial raspberry flavor and aspartame. Yes indeed this has Nutrasweet which is guaranteed to taste like crap and cause physical problems. If I would have seen this prior to buying I wouldn’t have gotten it on that principle alone. On with the review.... pours murky pink / orange with a pillowy pinkish head. The aroma has raspberry mixed with cough syrup. Medium / light body. Taste is fake - that nausiating Nutrasweet flavor is very obvious, there is some raspberry that is medicinal and sharp. The finish has a metallic taste. For charging such a premium price for this beverage why it would include fructose, artificial sweetener and artificial flavor is baffling. This beer sucks!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2006 Draft at Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh. Pours hazy reddish orange with a frothy white head. Aroma of raspberry and wheat malt. Very light mouthfeel. Faint wheat malt backbone, but most of the flavor is of raspberry powder. Strong flavor of artificial sweetener in the finish, which is very annoying.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can in Amsterdam. Stronge taste of cassis (cranberries-like), just way too sweet for me. Tastes a bit like a Geuze.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy pink, cheeky raspberry ripple nose. Mostly sugary fruit, with a dash of sweet-sour tartness. A nastily chemical note of diet soda bitterness that overpowers everything else, and lingers revoltingly. Have identified Aspartame in this without even reading the label. What a terrible waste of Wittekirke and Petrus Aged Pale ale. Criminally nasty alcopop.

Poured an orangish/red with white fast dissapaiting head. Smell was of a rasberry and other mixed fruits. Sweet fruit flavor at first with a grainy finish.
