Wasatch Raspberry Wheat has an initially thick, off-white head, and a clear, straw appearance, with clinging and ascending bubbles. Lacing is minimal. The aroma is of subtle raspberry and bread. Taste is of the same, with some background acidity and sugar. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Wasatch Raspberry Wheat finishes crisp and refreshing.

Clear gold colored beer with a momentary medium size white head.

Smells of raspberries. Smells slightly sour. Bread dough malt scent. Not particularly aromatic.

Starts out sweet with a hard water flavor. Raspberry flavor and a tart element to it. There is something about this that makes my tongue say "Cake Batter."

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall this is an OK food washer downer but it isn't that memorable.

It tastes kind of weird, can't put my finger on it.

Acquired via trade from Wasatch, so a big “Thank you” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of strong and tart raspberries with a background of wheat, hops and light malts.

T: The taste is nicely balanced as the raspberry flavor is no where near as strong as it is in the smell and doesn’t overpower you like it can in other beers that use it. It’s accompanied by flavors of wheat, cream and a little spice. The malt character is thin and the hops presence is mild. The after-taste is slightly sweet and a little bready.

M: Smooth and crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, clean and dry finish.

D: Tasty, goes down very easily, not very filling, I usually don’t like the raspberry flavor in beers, but this one makes good use of it. This is a nice easy-going beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for a fruit-flavored beer.

12oz. bottle thanks to BigJTrucker

Pours a clear straw color with a small white head that vanishes. Mild lacing on the glass.

Aroma has a slight wheat beer base but is largely raspberry, and fairly artificial at that.

A hint of wheat beer taste immediately upfront that gets taken over by a raspberry flavor. It's not unpleasant, but not quite a natural tasting raspberry flavor.

Light body, low carbonation.

Not a bad beer, but certainly nothing to seek out. No struggle to finish the glass, but certainly have no desire for another one.

Another treasure from the local singles cooler! For a raspberry beer, let's see how this one stacks up.

Appearance (4) : Dense, foamy, tightly knit head that shows no signs of going anywhere fast. The body is golden yellow with about 20% opacity. Slight shadowing of my fingers on the other side but mostly transparent.

Aroma (3.75) : Sour raspberry with seeds, some sour malt, milled wheat, and there's actually some nose-able hops! Hops give off a faint grapefruit aroma. Their presence is about even with the raspberry and malt smells. Overall a balanced aroma with a medium-strength bouquet.

Taste (3.25) : Some malty wheat with a faint sugary raspberry cereal (Trix?) flavor. The raspberry is definitely artificial and candy or Saturday morning cereal-like. It gets lost in the middle of the wash of the beer. Some muted hops finish off the drink in the form of faint lemon and dissolve in a watery finish. Interesting? Perhaps. Not necessarily great, though.

Mouthfeel (3.25) : Carbonated, crisp, refreshing, watery. Clean. Light bodied. Ends with nothing pretty much with water washing it down.

Overall (3.36) : If I had bought a six pack of this I would have been truly sorry. It's a poor beer all around, but it's an easy drinker. Better than Shock Top's offering, but that's not saying much. I've yet to find a decent raspberry beer. :-(

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong raspberry, pale malt, hint of hop, and slight wheat, and a hint of sweet malt. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of raspberries (not quite fresh though), hint of hop, slight wheat, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, aroma and body dominated by raspberry, but sadly not quite fresh or actual raspberry, but more of a concentrate.

Golden amber in the big chalice. A nice foam to start with that melts down to some lacing, but a robust tangy carbonation on the tongue. Light in weight
but the mouthfeel is a little more substantial with the tart fruit and an oily sensation. A little fruit in the aroma, but it's distinctly berry.

The fruity flavor is smooth and long lasting in the nose. A nice balance of malt and tartness, since there is not much in the way of hops. Just a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Really not a bad fruit beer and makes for a good low-alcohol style.

From the 12 oz bottle bought at Emigration Market in Salt Lake.

Not allot to say, this is pretty straight forward a wheat base with raspberry flavoring Not much to look at smell or taste. The raspberry is about all that saves this beer from completely falling off a cliff.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Golden yellow with little character. No head and spotty lace.

S: Raspberry, wheat (I know it is isn the name of the beer, but you can really smell it). Also, a little apple cider, corn, and light brown sugar.

T: The raspberry flavor is actually really great. I don't usually like fruit beers but this is pleasant. The wheat is great...nice and grainy. No additional spice, malt or hop but altogether good.

M: Watery but with a good alcohol vapor.

D: Really enjoyable. For a fruit beer it actually comes across like a beer with a great fruit flavor.
