I got this one in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks yet again, John!

It pours from 12oz bottle a clear yellow-gold with a very small head of foam that faded before I finished typing these words and it has almost no lacing.

The smell is delicate but I do get some raspberry goodness along with some sweet malt.

The taste has a light flavour of fresh raspberries followed by some sweet malt then a bit of hop bitterness that cuts the malt's sweetness almost immediately. Further sips in and the raspberry character, though still not as strong as I'd like it, turns towards the semi sou side and has a presence in the finish though that ends up mostly crisp and clean. I like it. Like I said, I was hoping for more of a raspberry kick but what's there is done nicely. I'd drink this one again, no problem.

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

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.

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

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.

This brew is back. BrewMaster Seasonal

Pours a nice clean/clear golden color, nice carbonation, nice little white head, not much sticky lacing afterwards. The nose is malty, slight spice scent, a little touch of raspberry, and some caramel. The taste is malty, with a nice touch of raspberry, and caramel. Medium body, nice carbonated feel on the tongue. Drinkable, this is a nice brew for a hot day, a thirst quencher, a tasty brew, recommended.

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.

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

APPEARANCE: This beer, poured from a tap] into a pint glass, produced an white fizzy 1/2" head that dissipated quickly leaving thin head lacing. Carbonation was soft in a clear straw colored body.

AROMA: Heavy raspberry aroma together with light toasted wheat and very light spices. You can really smell the raspberry.

TASTE: A more moderate taste to the raspberry -- a little lighter than I expected based on the aroma -- with light toasted wheat, very light spices and a very light hops note at the end.

MOUTHFEEL: This beer has a medium body with a smooth texture, soft carbonation and thin body lacing that dissipates quickly. The initial flavor is a light sweetly acidic tang with a lightly dry finish that lasted for a moderate length of time.

DRINKABILITY: This is a good summer session beer, repeatable all afternoon. The immediate hit of raspberry, followed by the dry wheat backup gives it a nice flavor punch. It would be great for a hot day. It has good value and is easy to drink. I'd buy it again and serve it to friends in the right circumstances.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance - amber in color

Smell - little hops and lots of fruity flavoring - rasberry

Taste / Drinkabilty - again, you can taste a small trace of the hops with a little flavoring of rasberries. I am not a fan of fruity beers, but if I would have a choice to drink it again, I would.

Mouthfeel - very delicious

Drank at the Wasatch Brewery in Park City

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.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

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.
