Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass. I stole your beer from your fridge!!
A very soapy but good retention head, bleach white and three fingers tall. Body color is a hazy classic looking wheat beer yellow with some bronze and slight gray edges. Good carbonation rising nicely. This is quite nice looking and solid.
Nose is pure raspberry syrup, and extremely dominant, with a very large candy sweetness. There's nothing else to even hint at any esters, malt or other beer like flavors. It is a raspberry beer, so it's delivering so far so I'll give it that.
Palate is extremely wet. Large thin watery raspberry dominates the palate, no beer backbone to this at all. Tight carbonation with no malt presence. Thin. Seltzery, quite gaseous. Slightly strangely alcohol warming for such a normal abv.
This is nothing but sugar water. Overall this is exactly like those raspberry seltzer-y bottles of water you can buy at the supermarket. If that's what you want in a beer for taste, then this is your thing. Unfortunately this hardly tastes like beer let alone some sort of wheat brew. Pass.

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.
