3.18/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A- Less than one finger off white head. Minimal Lacing throughout. The color was a hazy red raspberry.

S- Wheat malts and raspberries are the smell. I smell hops but it takes a few big whiffs to get them.

T- Yeasty brew. The raspberry here is kind of acidic and a little artificial tasting. Idk if they brew with real fruit or not. The taste has a slight syrup to it as well.

M- Slightly more than what I would call medium bodied with some carbonation. The yeast is apparent.

D- Could you drink a couple of these sure. But I wouldn't need to. They have other one offs at the brewpub that I would rather have anyways.

Had on tap at the Elkhart Brewpub.

A- Poured a light hazy pinkish purple looking color. One finger off white head that dies rather quickly. Light soapy lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Artifical raspberries right up front with this. This makes for a very sweet aroma throughout the entire nose. Wheaty undertones and something else that I can't put my finger on make up the overall aroma.

T- Light wheat upfront gets crushed from the middle on with a huge raspberry flavor. Once again this is very artifical tasting...ending with a bitter wheat balance that just can't break the sweetness of this beer.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation was good for the style. Couldn't understand why this felt heavier than it should have for the style. Raspberry dominate the entire palate and long into the aftertaste. Flavor was pretty one sided and I thought this kind of killed the entire mouthfeel.

D- Even though this beer was sweet by the time you got to the end of the glass it didn't bother you anymore. A good "chick" beer but the higher ABV gives it the little kick it needs. SHould have no problem drinking this all night...you just need to get through the first glass that's all.

I absolutely did not like the taste of this beer because of the raspberry taste/flavor as I do not care for raspberries to begin with.It had a very strong nose of raspberry!All I could taste was raspberries.No thanks!It did pour a very small head that for some reason was long lasting.The body was cloudy and the hue was light pink to red.

Pretty beer, very pink/purple color with tan head with pink notes. Aroma was all raspberry all the time. Menu said brewed with raspberries, I'm guessing that they used an infusion or concentrated flavoring, du to color, aroma and taste. I'm not a big fan of these beers in general but this was at least drinkable. Beer was a little watery (as most M.H. beers were to me) but was pleasant in a very small dose. Nothing special but drinkable.

I absolutely love this beer! The appearance is really nice and so is the smell. It goes great mixed with the stout. It also goes really goods with the summer daze. I would recommend this beer to just about anybody. I'm usually not one to drink a whole lot of fruity beers but this one is good.

This sample formed very little head, but it lasted a long while. It has a strong raspberry aroma. Its body is a light pink/red and was cloudy. It also has a strong raspberry for and after taste.
