Part of a mixed pack that my wife brought back from her camping trip in NH.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle, best before Jan. 2012.

Appearance: A very clear, very pale yellow body. Average-sized head at 3 fingers and retention is not bad.

Smell: Certainly smells like raspberries so it lives up to the billing....so far.

Taste: Raspberries but not fresh. A metallic flavor is in there and the raspberries are not very good, too vegetal.

Mouthfeel: Some slight bitterness but all wrong. Like eating a plant stem. Plus, the image i have in my mind is vomit.

Overall: Not pleasant and i still have one left :(

All these years I've passed over this on the shelf, I never knew there was a Raspberry version.
Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a smallish white head that quickly dissipates to a cap. Smells of raspberry syrup mostly. It's a powerful raspberry aroma, I can't smell any beer underneath. The flavor is a hint tamer on the raspberry front. The flavor brings spicy wheat, a bit of earth and butter to the mix. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. All these years and even the anticipation couldn't make this a great beer. Its kind of one dimensional and frankly a bit boring, not my cup of beer.

A- Crystal clear golden ale poured into pint glass. Fizzy white head forms to about two fingers and dies out just as quickly. Small ring remains but leaves no lace.

S- Tart fruit right away. Strong raspberry notes mixed with a lighter malt and bread background.

T- Same elements as the aroma but with a different feel. Raspberry is still strong but the bread, wheat and malt balance it out a bit more here. Takes on a soapy floral feel after some time.

MF- Light bodied with a foamy feel and high carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.

Just another light fruit wheat beer. The fruit is nice in this hot weather but it just ends up feeling like soda after a bit. Not bad at all but this type of beer is all too familiar.

A: Pours a fizzy white 2 finger head and fades at a medium pace over brilliantly clear yellow straw watery color.

N: Some wheat, a little, a little raspberry syrup, like the kind you get in a lemonade at a bar, and some syrupy sweet malt extract aromas. Very light and I have to really push to get any real aromas other than the raspberry.

T: very light to start, some fluffy wheat, a little creamy malt, light malts with a little sweetness and some lager like flavors, but not much. Some sweet syrupy flavors, it actually gets sweeter as the taste goes. A touch of raspberry syrup again, the bartender syrup. Very light in flavor as well. As the old joke goes, it's like having sex in a canoe, cause it's fucking close to water...

M: very light body with decent but lower carbonation.

F: Lots of syrupy malt extract flavors lingering. An unpleasant toasty malt extract syrupy flavor with some raspberry in the middle. Sticky sweetness, syrupy, and lingers for a while which is not what I expected as the initial taste was so light.

Pours a slim white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Clear amber color. Faint raspberry nose. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Flavor has raspberry hints but hops dominate. Hoppy aftertaste. 16oz glass on-tap $4.00 at Woodstock Inn Brewery N. Woodstock, NH.

Best before Jan. '08:

Pours light yellow with a creamy white head that descends to a lasting thin cover. A bit of lacing sticks to the glass.

The smell is of raspberry syrup with a slight wheat tang. Nothing "off", but nothing outside of typical/average for the style.

The taste is of sweet raspberry - almost in a "Fruit Roll-Ups" sort of plastic-like way. Somewhat tart, with a wheat tang. At least the raspberry is somewhat balanced. But, overall, the taste is rather bland/lackluster...

The body is light - somewhat fizzy, but smooth, crisp and has a refreshing quality to it.

Bottom line - this is another pedestrian/run-of-the mill fruit wheat beer. Some dryness/crispness lends to a summer drinkability.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for bringing this back from New England.

Pours a pale color with a head that recedes quickly. Strong, nice raspberry essence like a fruit beer should have. The taste has a mild raspberry taste with some dryness. The mouthfeel is of dry raspberry, like drinking raspberry ginger ale. Not bad but I believe Sea Dog's example is much better.

Pours pale gold with a foamy white head. Some decent lace and fair retention.

Light wheat, yeast, and grain aromas, but there is a raspberry scent. Nothing overpowering.

Light wheat brew flavors mingled with some artificial raspberry essence. The wheat brew part of this is not all that inspiring, and the raspberry flavor is not a Jolly Rancher, so I don't find this offensive. Flavors are mild, and jump back from bready sweet, to light bitterness. Average.

Light bodied and carbonated. Fine here.

This is what it is, and this bottle probably was a holdover from a broken 12 pack. Condition was fine, but I couldn't even see myself seeking this on a hot summer day. Nothing wrong, just nothing that shines.
