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

Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium snifter. Pours a hazy apricot color with a nice tight one finger of head. Nice lacing too. I definitely get the raspberries on the nose. Also get a bit of cherry and lemon as well.

The beer has a light body and a rather thin mouthfeel. There is a light, grainy taste up front and some sweet notes, then a nice wave of raspberry flavors come in. The flavor is pretty well-balanced between tart and sweet. It's unfortunate that the brewer didn't leave it a bit more tart, as it would have complemented the graininess well and made the beer very refreshing. The finish is a bit underwhelming, but still manages to be dry enough to leave you ready for more.

I'm not sure how they brew this, but it drinks like a raspberry wheat beer. It's quite tasty and refreshing.

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.
