The color is sort of a cloudy copper, thick orange with an orange-red hue in the depths. A white head is small but sturdy, holding the creamy cap well and leaving a mix of spotting and patching as it descends.
The smell is wheat first and raspberry second, in very specific order but both very much there. It's got a dry, crackery element, and I almost wonder if it's cracked wheat, and some earthiness follows through.
The taste switches it up, with the raspberry first on the tongue and the strong wheat foundation showing after it pops out. It's light but fresh, a little jammy, with just a light floral bitterness into the finish.
The feel is light, somewhat dry, and firmly crisp with a bit of an herbal note.

Big thanks goes out to mikesgroove for sharing this one with me during the Halloween festivities at his house! Thanks buddy! Served from growler into a New Belgium globe. Poured a hazy light red with a two finger white head that subsided to half a finger slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, blueberries, raspberries, tart, and slight funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, cream, raspberries, and wheat. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. I was intrigued by the combination of the wheat and raspberry as soon as I saw this growler come out of the fridge. Upon inspection the combination worked pretty well together. However, in this brew there was a little more sweetness than I would have liked. This was still a pretty solid brew that I would love to have again in larger quantities.

Hazy maroon color with light red/white head. Nice carbonation. Smell is of bready wheat grains and sour sweet raspberry. Taste is gentle raspberry with plenty of wheat in the background. A touch of tartness here with the sweet fruit is welcome. Lots of fizz and a light body make this go down easy and a great summer session beer. Wish there was a touch more 'razz' but overall crisp and inviting beer.

hazy pinkish amber with a nice one inch head that faded to leave a ring around the putside of the glass. No real glass lace. Very nice hazy appearence, lots of carbonation was visible steaming up from the bottom, looked pretty decent.

Aroma was light, nothing really jumping out at you, but once it settled in was actually fairly decent. Lots of yeasty and grain like aroma, however there was a definate fruitiness to it. Something sweet lingering in the back that you just could not place. Very intresting, it was like a Hefe mixed with fruit, Actually very good. Nice grain flavors making up the bulk of it, however the berries was very evident, not somethign you had to go searching for. Left a nice finish as well. Very sweet finish. Very crisp, smooth, with lots of carbonation. Really let the flavors pop off

I am not a big fine of wheat beers or fruity beers
but this one maybe the exception that gets me started
No wonder it is one of the best selling beer at Ohio University

I got to taste this several times and at a tasting at Jackie O and the brew introduced by telling us he used real rasberries and lots of them

I will attest to that The rasberry flavors comes through and gives the beer an exceptional taste
very little bitterness
very drinkable
I can see why a campus finds this very popular
I wish I could have it stocked in my fridge for hot days cause this is the type of beer you could sip cold or lie and at a beach and drink all day

long after the beer was gone I tasted resaberry

From tap to shaker pint glass at Jackie O's on 8/26/11
*From notes

A: Cloudy blueberry-ruby. Simply gorgeous. One finger head and decent lacing.

S: Ripe red fruit juice and a hint of hearty wheat.

T: Extremely fresh. Most fruit beers I've encountered use a syrupy conditioner to add that "fruit flavor". This conditioner adds not only unwanted calories, but a stale nature to the brew. But not this beer, folks. Instead, it's like shoving a handful of fresh raspberries into your mouth. There's a really solid backbone of wheat which adds to the complexity of the beer.The finish is crisp and slightly off-dry.

M: Really refreshing. It's got plenty of body to carry the amount of flavor here. The carbonation is just soft enough to make this an easy drinker.

O: Jackie O's Razz Wheat is easily one of the best non-sour fruit beer's I've ever encountered. It's not in your face, yet it's flavorful enough to return to time and time again. A stunner.
