The aroma is awesome! Very fruity and strong raspberry smell. It almost bummed me out when I tasted it. A fruity beer with almost a sour character. I mean not terrible but not great. A amber color to it. The aroma pumped me up but as far as taste it fell short for me.

Shock Top. Loved their honey crisp. Lets see what the raspberry has in store. $6.64 at wal mart.
Appearance - in bottle
Smell (3) - Overwhelming raspberry. Disturbingly one noted. Raspberry wine cooler. Raspberry syrup. Raspberry daquiri. Just raspberry. Wheat undertones. Not sure how to score this. I could smell it all day and its a great smell but yet it has absolutely no depth or character.
Taste (1) - the raspberry falls flat and gets lost in a sourness of the wheat and water of the the beer. Flat, watery. Ends with the taste of old raspberry seeds and a sour mash. A bit of hazy wheat. Despite the overwhelmingly sweet smell it's really not what I expected. It's kinda gross to be honest. Not the worst I've had but they really could have done better here. In a nutshell? Wet, moldy, raspberry seed, and a strangely moldy wheat sour finish.
Mouthfeel (2) - fizzy but retains a little smoothness.
Overall - smell is extravagant if only one-noted (raspberry). Unfortunately it is the best part of this beer. Taste is simply gross and one of the worst beers I've ever tried. Wish I could say more positive but unfortunately, this has been a disappointment. Never again, I say!
