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

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. :-(

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.

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: 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.

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.
