Pours a cloudy, orange hazy color, with a weak, thin head. Some swirling brings up a bit of creamy foam, but it doesn't last. Small bits of sediment can be seen floating in there; I'd like to think they are raspberry seeds, but I am sure they are not. Aroma is powerfully sweet of artificial raspberry, but there is some noticeable wheat malts and even some small amount of spicy cloves, cinnamon? I may be being generous. Taste is pretty sweet; not overpoweringly fruity but there just isn't much to it. Has a very poor mid-palette taste, nasty rotten fruit flavor, finishes sweet like candy and IHOP raspberry syrup. Poor tastes, not impressed whatsoever. Mouthfeel is thin and hollow.
Overall, too sweet and overly fruity. Blech, no thanks.

Had this in an outlet mall bar with my wife, while she was on a shopping break. Light amber color, small head with no real lacing. Head disappeared fast. Smell was fragrant and strong of raspberries - taste was similar, but less fruity. More along my wife's taste than mine, but choices were limited...
