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.

3.18/5  rDev -5.6%

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 pretty see through straw color... nice head to it that stays consistent all the way down. Nice sweet aroma to it. Taste has a nice body to it and great mouthfeel with nice carbonation. Nice subtle raspberry taste to it, not overkill like some breweries. Not overly tart either like the last raspberry wheat I had, makes for a nice drinkable summer seasonal. If you have a girlfriend who usually doesn't drink beer this would probably be a good option to try out.

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 Buy Jan 08

Pours a nice clean/clear golden pale yellow color, nice carbonation, nice one finger foamy white head, some nice sticky lacing follows. The nose is malty, slight yeast, raspberry, slight caramel. The taste is slightly sweet, malty/yeasty, nice touch of raspberry, a slight tone of caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, a nice little brew, recommended.

3.98/5  rDev +18.1%

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Large glaring white foamy head of three fingers tall. Body is quite adjunct looking crystal clear gold/straw color and minimal lacing. Not bad, nothing too impressive or awful.

Bouquet is strong spiced berry smells like raspberry and a wheat chew. Simple so I call good. Nothing offensive or off, smells like it should even have a little spicy clove.

Taste is incredibly fruity. Nice raspberry punch, light bodied density and almost crisp feeling. Missing a little wheat density in the palate, but seems to come through slowly in the finish.

Overall this is pretty impressive and a pretty tasty fruit beer, maybe one of the better ones I’ve had in a long time.

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.

3.58/5  rDev +6.2%

Poured from a bottle into a weisse vase, the beer is a bright, vibrant, yellow-gold coloring with a trace, thin filmy coating of white on the surface. Aromas of raspberry all over the nose, both tart and sweet. Flavors are very raspberry on the initial tongue, with a very true flavor, avoiding the syrupy character that some fruit beers end up with. Almost a baked flavor to it, like raspberry cobbler or pie. The bready characteristics are slightly underwhelming when trying to balance the tart, sweet berry profiles, but they do help to keep it from dominating your palate and becoming cloying. Subtle sweet aftertaste, which is a welcome surprise, giving your palate a quick break between sips. Clean, crisp finish for the fairly light bodied brew. Not bad, but too many might be a little oversweet for me.

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.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 13, 2013.

It pours will a chill-hazy lighter yellowish-amber with a full white head that fades downward.

The nose is absolutely full with raspberry more so than wheat. It is supposed to be all natural and I have no doubt that it is. But its exuberance is like a raspberry iced tea. The pale malts, wheat and crisp clean hops are so far in the background that are nearly non-existent.

The body is light and refreshing.

The taste has a slight wheaty start but like the aroma the raspberry becomes the dominating ingredient.

3.03/5  rDev -10.1%

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.

3.25/5  rDev -3.6%

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.

This beer is listed as having a 4.1% ABV. I had this on tap at the American Craft Beer Fest in Boston in June 2008.

The beer is refreshing with mild raspberry in the nose, with some grainy wheat in the background. The appearance was quite pale, with a bit of a soapy head.

The taste was refreshingly light raspberry, with a decent but not brilliant wheat beer as its base. There wasn't much more to say about this beer although I will seek it out in bottle form and re-review it to see if I uncover anything else in a more contemplative setting.

2.28/5  rDev -32.3%

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 :(

Picked up a single in NH. Poured into a standard pint glass. Orange tinted colored body. Nice sized white head, but once that was gone, the beer looked limp. Smell was full of raspberry. That aroma dominated. Flavor was also decent for a fruit beer. The beer had the taste of raspberry, but was not overly sweet. A tad artificial, but not sugary. Mouthfeel was thin and watery, but a beer with an abv of 4% is expected to be this way. Not a bad fruit beer, but I could only drink one of these in a session.

Since it's 85 degree's here in Southern New Hampshire today, on this gorgous May Day 2010 i picked up a simple wheat ale for a hot day, i didn't notice the "raspberry" part...oh well, let's see.

looks cool, dark golden color, the raspberry makes this one darker than a wheat ale should be. a simple raggedy white head, gone quick.

The aroma is simple wheat malts, dry-earth and mostly raspberry.

The balance of raspberry and light, crispy wheat malt is actually really good, not cloying sweetness left-over which great. finishes light, crisp and clean...not bad.
