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.

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 :(

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

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.

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.

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.

A: Now much going on here, light amber gold color. A fizzy head that disappears quickly. Not much lacing.

S: Big raspberry fruity smell, and wheat.

T: Taste is better than smell. Really fruity up front, and a little bitter kick at the end. Vague wheat taste.

M: Pretty thin, a little creamy. Not too carbonated.

D: High, low alcohol, and tasty if you can handle the fruit.

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.

This poured out a clear bright yellow (SRM4) with a thick white head supported by a moderately high level of carbonation. Dominant raspberry nose that is very sweet masking the hops and malt. Raspberry wheat flavor with low bitterness and moderately sweet. Raspberry is a bit cloying and the finish should be drier.

poured a golden color with a two finger fluffy white head that held well and a small amount of lace. mild raspberry aroma. mild raspberry malt slightly dry taste but not picking up the wheat, finish is a little too dry for me. light mouthfeel but not watery. its not standout but not bad by any means.
