The drink poured a cloudy orange with barely any head, which disappeared rather quickly after the pour, and no lacing at all. There were also a few carbonation bubbles coming up at any given moment.
I smelled this from the bottle and could detect a definite raspberry smell, however when I poured it into the glass, I couldn't put my nose on any one smell except for the crisp raspberry and hops. Maybe my nose isn't that distinguished yet?
The taste of the beer was excellent. Not too sweet or tart. You won't be puckering your lips after a swig. The carbonation in the beer provides that special kick that adds value and you can feel it when you drink. Very easy beer to drink as it is light to medium bodied.
I would definitely recommend this drink to everybody, even the doubters of a good fruit beer.

Poured from a bottle. Has a clear golden hue with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is faintly raspberry, and this is probably the best part of the beer. The flavor has hardly any raspberry, but more of a wheat. Even then, there isn’t much. Carbonation is low to nothing, and the beer leans on the watery side. Unfortunately this just isn’t a very good beer, and I happen to like fruit beers.

I like this raspberry ale because it has more of a malt base than just white wheat, and while the berry doesn't come through and blow your mind, and it doesn't stand out really in any way, its important to remember that this is good because its different, innovation pays, at least for me. hazy almost amber copper color to this, minimal white head and a pink tint. the nose mixes sweet and tartness of the berry with a sweeter and larger malt profile than usual for a fruit beer, which to me is this beers most redeeming asset. the taste has a surprising amount of front of flavor hops to it, before the fruit flashes in and then the malt finishes it. an odd flavor journey really, filling for the style, and without a ton of real raspberry in the taste. I do like the mix of richer grain and fruit. fuller bodied and rather poorly carbonated, but a cool beer nevertheless.
