A: Pours a translucent golden with a white head.

S: Nose is all raspberry, almost like a raspberry cider or something.

T: Taste is dry, yet sweet raspberry flavor, and just a touch of wheat.

M: Light bodied, a bit light on carbonation, which is nice. Definitely refreshing.

O: Recommended if you like fruit infused wheat beers (which I personally do).

Pours translucent gold with thin white head that quickly fades to a thin film on top and leaves faint lace.

Smell is of grainy malt, strawberry (raspberry?), and faint apple.

Taste is malt, raspberry and apple.

Mouthfeel is watery and thin with medium carbonation.

Taste like a slightly alcoholic apple juice. Too thin, too tart and too sweet.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 0224P. Sampled on September 5, 2013.

It pours golden yellow. The white fizzy head erupts briefly but fades just as quickly. Good clarity.

The aroma brings out raspberries on the forefront but the wheat can also be found in the background along with a clean hop note. Sweetness.

Light body but slightly acidic probably from the natural raspberry flavoring.

Raspberries are more than evident in the sweet taste with a more downplayed wheat note but it tastes natural and that's a plus. Mild clean hop finale. Better than the Sea Dog Apricot in my opinion.

A: Pours a mostly clear deep golden amber in color with some minimal amounts of visible carbonation as well as orangish amber highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy beige head that quickly reduces to a couple of very small patches of very thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of sugary sweet raspberry over a light hint of wheat. Kind of reminds me of early "craft" fruit wheat beers of the mid 1990s.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of wheat that is fairly quickly overpowered by overly sweet raspberry - which tastes slightly artificial. Not cloying sweetness overall but an artificial sweetener raspberry flavors with some light amounts of breadiness. Hints of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Really reminds me of the early craft wheat/fruit beers that were available in the early to mid 1990s, refreshing and pretty easy to drink but nothing to get excited about.
