On tap at the Orange Street brewpub location.
Pours reddish amber with a small but semi-durable head that leaves more lacing than expected.
Aroma: fruity wth raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry elements, in that order.

Taste: quite fruity wth raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry elements, but the wit base is still apparent. Sweet up front with nice light bitterness and tartness in the finish. Lingering berry aftertaste.

O: excellent for style.

I don't see any bottle date.

Appearance: It looks like pink grapefruit juice. It has a pink color and it is very hazy. There isn't really a head on this beer. When I first poured the beer it had a very short white layer that quickly fizzed out. It has a lot of carbonation bubbles popping across the surface.

Aroma: It has a souring berry aroma; not sour like tart but souring as if a berry were going bad. The aroma is pretty standard for what you will find in beer made with actual fruit. It has a nice raspberry syrup aroma but I can't say that I would be able to pick out any other specific berry aromas.

Taste: Up front there is a very light tartness like a very watered down raspberry lemonade. The wealth of flavor in this beer is occupied by wheat.

Mouthfeel: It has a lot of carbonation but the wheat keeps the beer pretty smooth. Unfortunately it just feels very watered down and empty.

Overall: The beer is not as fruity or sour as something like a Lambic (it isn't one anyway) so expect something with a very moderate fruit presence. Drinking the beer blind I would not be able to pick out more than one berry. It has a lot of wheat flavor but it is in no way a Hefeweizen so you won't get a lot of the associative flavors or aromas. The beer feels very watered down but it would be decent for somebody looking for a beer with a light presence for a hot summer day. Personally I find it a bit lacking and there are other fruit/wheat beers that are better but I know that I could find a handful of individuals who would be interested in drinking it.

12 oz bottle. Pours almost pink, no head. Aroma is strong berry. Taste is a malty lager taste with a hint of raspberry sweetness and a dose of blackberry tartness built in. Finish is tart, but not unpleasant. Doesn’t taste like beer at all.
