Pours hazed golden yellow with a white head that quickly becomes a thin, lasting cover. Minimal lacing sticks.
The smell is of raspberries with a wheat tant, some citrus and some yeast.
The taste is of sweet - almost sticky. It's a shame that the taste doesn't really stand up to the aroma. There is a little dry yeast and some mild citrus and coriander, but the sweet raspberry dominates, and hangs on in the aftertaste. Overall, the taste is of the typical artificial-ish fruit syrup with just a little more underneath.
It is pretty creamy, but has an odd thickness to it. Still, it is pretty smooth. Not crisp, though.
Rasberry syrup dominates. Still, there is a little more to it - in the aroma, anyway. There are both better and worse American fruit wheat ales out there. It doesn't even come close to the standard Belgian fruit beers, but being what it is - it is what it is.

Color naranja, con cabeza que desaparece rapidamente sin dejar encaje, carbonatacion media, aroma completamente dominado por la frambuesa.
Sabor dulce, levemente citrico sin amargor pero con cierto grado de acides y dominado por el sabor frutal a frambuesa pero con un gusto artificial.
cuerpo ligero, facil de tomar y deja una sensacion acida en toda la boca.

Can: Poured a light yellow color ale with a light bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of fake raspberry syrup is quite awful with quite a bit of residual sugars. This is closer to a cooler than beer. Taste is a mix between some grainy wheat malt notes with quite a bit of residual sugar and way too much of the awful raspberry syrup. Body is light with good carbonation. I wasn’t expecting some kind of masterpiece but what a bunch of crap this beer was.
