3.33/5 rDev -0.3%
Pours a gold colour, quite pale with furious carbonation. White, large bubbly head sinks quite quickly. Bit disappointing lace-wise too. Looks lagery. Not terrible though.
Smells fruity with rather meaty raspberry notes, quite tart and tangy. Yeah pleasant but one-note.
Taste is similar, quite creamy but then rather lagery in the sense of yeasty, somewhat bready. Touch of fruit, some pie spice and a bit bitter. Not quite sure how to slot it into style but pleasant enough.
A bit fizzy, thinnish but OK.
Intriguing but not amazing.

11.5oz (?) bottle purchased from the brewery by my Mum and brought back to Australia. Shared with @LaitueGonflable.
Pours a very pale golden colour, very clear and very bright in the body. Carbonation is extremely coarse and rather effervescent. Crazy head of off-white forms very solidly despite a gentle pour. Specked in the body with bits of chunks when the sediment is aroused. Body is very light. Overall, it looks okay, but not really better than that.
Nose smells intensely of raspberries, but with a thick sugary sweetness. Slight vegetative undertone, but not really much contribution from anything else. It's intense, but a little bit one-dimensional.
Taste is very disappointing by comparison. Here, there's a huge clinging yeasty earthiness, which lambasts the more subtle raspberry character, making it feel small and meek. Bready tones come through as well. There is a touch of raspberry on the front, but stacks of that nasty woody, yeasty, nasty nastiness on the back. It's a big shame.
Feel is very light, leaving nothing to the imagination.
Overall, this isn't very good. It's weird, which at least makes it interesting, but the characters don't mesh well together. In the end, it didn't do much for me.

Appearance- Pours a peachy blush colour with a 1/2 finger width of bubbly head.
Smell- Raspberries, wheat malts, strawberries, lemon/orange zest.
Taste- Natural raspberry flavour. Well balanced with the wheat taste. A little sweet but has the perfect amount of sweetness. A little bit of bitterness in the aftertaste which is a little surprising.
Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Maybe a tad thin.
Overall- A tasty raspberry wheat ale by Garrison. Good raspberry flavour but not overly sweet. The aftertaste could use a little tweaking but otherwise, perfect for a summer day.

Thanks to my dad for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of syrupy raspberry with some wheat notes thrown in for good measure. The flavor follows suit. I get a lot of raspberry, as well as some grain and wheat notes. Thin mouthfeel and high carbonation.
