A good effort, this brew is dominated by yeast with hints of raspberry. It really comes across as being artificial, the raspberry actually seems to have a medicinal quality. The wheat is not really doing anything either except adding cloudiness to the brew.

A rare miss for these guys. Perhaps I got the dregs from the keg or something. I'll taste again when I can and update.

I had the IPA, my GF had this... and I had to jump all over it as it looked so very delicious....

- Lovely cloudy light yellow and raspberry red color... pinkish violet... fluorescent.. and glowing... creamy light head, and a decent amount of lacing... rather light but cloudy..

- Smell is a raspberry fruit wonderland.. really a great smell.. slight sweetness... sugar, light sweet malt... little floral..

- Smooth and light sailing for this one... the taste isn't too sweet which I love, and the flavors are all blended and balanced so well... w/ 3/4 Lb. used for 1 gallon of beer... it certainly seems like the right amount! Light, awesome, and wonderful... a self-reward beer... for a long day of yard work or whatever else..

- Light sweetness, and fruit aftertaste.. makes you want to keep drinking this stuff all day long... better than water.

- Perfect light carbonation, and perfectly refreshing.. one of the best fruity beers I've had.... a must try!

I got this beer at Racoon Lodge in Portland Oregon. This is not a beer drinkers beer. It's a lite seasonal that goes great with fish or a salad. If I had to describe it, I'd call it a fruity beer champagne. It's definitely not for everyone, but I loved it. On a side note, my girlfriend is disgusted by beer, and she didn't make her usual gag face.

04AUG12 at the barrel house.

Very disappointed with this one. The server did not warn us this was an overnight sour mash (she later indicated after I said it was too sweet and plain).

Looks like a watered down Rose wine - flat and glassy. Smells of raspberries and sweet alcohol with a slightly rosy character. Fun nose. Flavor is much less fun. Tastes like a golden ale with a bunch of raspberry flavor - not tart, but slightly dry on the finish. Sad beer.

I had this beer on-tap in my OBF pint glass at Oregon Brewers Festival.

Appearance: beautiful red color with no haze at all, despite the fact that it's a wheat beer. Pretty low level of effervescence, but there's a nice layer of white foam. I just love the color.

Smell: as fruit beers go, this is awesome. It smells like fresh raspberry jam -- the fruit comes through just beautifully here.

Taste: earthy as well as fruity, with a bright and natural raspberry flavor. There's a little bit of wheaty character here, but the real star is the fruit; they did a great job capturing the berry here.

Mouthfeel: light body with low carbonation; not creamy, but rocky and refreshing.

Overall: super tasty and drinkable, especially on a hot day. As fruit beers go, this is one of the best I've had.
