look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: It has a nice semi cloudy pale golden/yellow color to it. It has a white head that dies down fast and leaves almost no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of wheat malts, some grains, raspberries and also a cinnamon like spiciness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some wheat, some graininess and some raspberries. Not very flavorful.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium/high carbonation with a somewhat thin and watery overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with somewhat bland flavors and aromas.

The beer pours a gold color with a slightly reddish hue. It has a beautiful white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a solid pale and wheat malt scent along with mild raspberry aroma. The taste is decent as well. It has a light and refreshing pale and wheat malt flavor that's highly quaffable. It goes down easy and finishes with a pretty nice raspberry extract taste. They say real fruit, but I'm not buying it. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is an easy drinker, but my least favorite of their lineup.

Had this on tap at Barley Yards.

Poured a deep golden with a slight maroon hue. Very little head, what bit there is is white and frothy and dissapears quickly.

Smells like respberry, very fruity.

Taste is clean, raspberry dominating with a faint trail of sweet malt and water. Slightly sour fruit aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is very carbonated but fits the beer well.

Drinkability here is only average for me. Fruit beers aren't my thing but this would be great for a summer night.
