3.45/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Has a golden unfiltered color/consistency.
Head that dissipated quickly but stays thin.
Smells of raspberries and the peppery smell of wheat beers.
Tastes like raspberries and wheat beer flavor. Not a whole lot too it, but it is not that bad of a beer.

I would buy it again if I was in the mood for a sweet sort of beer. (321 characters)

3.36/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aroma: A prominent malty aroma with a fresh fruit character.

Appearance: It a pours hazy straw yellow color with a low white head.

Flavor: It's a crisp clean beer with minimum graininess that provides a fine canvass for the raspberries to shine.


Mouth feel: It has a light body with medium carbonation

Overall Impression: This is a refreshing beer; it very well suited to the warmer seasons. This would make a good lawn mower beer in the summer. I do believe the beer is true to the style. It's just a beer (and a style) I don't enjoy. (542 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured a light amber color that actually looked more filtered than what you would normally expect from a wheat beer. The head was decent and definitely creamy that lasted a really long time with good amount of lacing on the glass.

S: Smelled like raspberries that were past their prime. I chalked this up to the yeast that was used and it actually isn't as bad as it sounds. There was also some really light wheat undertones.

T: The taste was mostly like a really weak wheat beer with a light raspberry aftertaste. The yeast could have been more pronounced and definitely try not to hide the raspberry flavors if that is what you are going for.

M/D: The feel was light and watered down, lacked any type of sour of bitter feel and didn't really have a bite either. The drinkability is easy but doesn't leave you craving more. (830 characters)

2.72/5  rDev -12.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured a pale yellow from 12oz bottle. Very little head with thin lacing. Strong raspberry aroma -- semi natural, but something a bit too powerful about it. Taste was similar, i think maybe they tipped a bit too much of the raspberry concoction into the brew.

It seemed a little bit too carbonated, but similar with other wheat beers. I wasn't expecting the raspberry to overpower the other tastes so much, but it did. You can sense the wheat beer underneath, and I think it might be ok if they brought out more of that taste.

It has a chemically aftertaste. I'll drink the rest of the 6-pack, but I probably won't buy it again. (630 characters)

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer has a light hazy golden yellow body with a thick film of snow white head on top. There is a gentle carbonation of big bubbles that glide through the body.

S- There is a fresh raspberry syrup that is not really sweet but a bit chemical note.

T- The fruity flavor of raspberries with a field corn note and a finish of bitterness possible from hops. Raspberries extract hang on after finish with a slight sulfur note.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a dry finish.

D- This beer has a fruity extract flavor that is a bit chemical but not to sweet but a bit too dry. (634 characters)

At Old Chicagos in Boulder. Pours a hazy yellow, almost pale. Very thin white foam, doesn't look spectacular.
Raspberries and lemon fight for aroma dominance with the lemon winning out.
Raspberry takes the cake in the taste. Begins strong then moves toward a lemon and carbonation finish. A bit weak in the flavor, but would be nice on a hot day. Gives a bit of a welcome twist to wheat beers. (395 characters)

2.99/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Serving Type Sampled: 22fl. oz. brown crown top bottle. Features freshness date, however a date is not notched. I love the label designs from Twisted Pine they are all alike.

Appearance: This beer pours a hazy straw in color with a snow white 1 finger head. Minimal lace after the head has faded.

Smell: Raspberries of course. Wheat malt and citrus hops. Also has a carbonic acid smell that really brings down the score.

Taste: Raspberry extract is prevalent. The rest of the flavor is very mild and bland. I do taste a little wheat maltiness as well as a little yeast but that’s about it.

Mouthfeel: Very thin and in my opinion over carbonated.

Drinkability: Good, I think that this beer is on the right track as far as style however I found it to be overly fruity. When I think of this style I am thinking of a beer that is heavy in the wheat character with a light unpronounced raspberry flavor which makes you wonder, is that raspberry I taste? (965 characters)
