20oz pint at the Underground during their eventual (thanks again, AGLC!) Central City tap takeover.
This beer appears a faintly hazy medium bronzed amber hue, with one finger of moderately foamy, weakly bubbly pale beige head, which leaves little beyond a low berm of fizzy off-white lace around the glass as things quickly drop away.
It smells of raspberry pie filling - the sassy black fruit and a hint of cream - grainy, lightly bready caramel malt, and tame earthy, leafy noble hops. The taste is still raspberry-forward, but now with a more vegetal side of the fruit strutting its stuff, among a biscuity, softly toasted caramelized malt, and more earthy, somewhat weedy hops.
The bubbles are pretty low-key, just a dull hum throughout, the body more light than medium weight, and a bit hollow in its quotidian smoothness. It finishes well off-dry, the muddled raspberry fruitiness lingering amid a faded bready pale malt sweetness.
A decently refreshing, and veritably quaffable fruit beer, the headliner running through various guises as things progressed. Maybe not a world beater, but worth a shot for those who maybe aren't all that beholden to their sweet tooth.
Serving type: on-tap

S: Smells strongly of raspberries with a hint of yeast.
T: The taste begins with raspberries, transitions to yeast, which finishes with the taste of wheat.
M: Thin viscosity with a low level of carbonation.
O: A drinkable and sweet Wheat Ale, this beer would benefit most from a better mouthfeel.
