I poured this beer into a pint glass. It has a golden color body with a big head that quickly disappeared to not even a lace. The smell is strictly tart raspberry. The taste is the same way all raspberry no wheat at all. mouth feel is ok and overall i wasn't impressed.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a thin foam film. Looks like a macro wheat. 2.5
Tart raspberry aroma with wheaty tang, bubblegum, and some sweetness. 3.0
Flatulent raspberry flavors, mild and tangy with sweetness mostly carrying over from the malts. Wheaty and husky with a weak artificial finish. Acrid. 2.5
Bushy-tailed with carb. Medium to light body. 3.5
Nothing to write home about. 2.5

12oz bottle. My girl bought this at the local grocery chain in Waikiki, and after spending a day in the sun (us, not the beer), it doesn't sound like that much of a lark at this point.
This beer pours a hazy, medium golden straw hue, with one finger of weakly puffy, and thinly foamy off-white head, which leaves very little in the way of lace anywhere near the glass as it quickly fades to nil.
It smells of raspberry cream pie filling, raspberry Kool-Aid powder, a certain plastic chemical astringency, and the faintest of beer-oriented pale graininess (corn, malt, rice, whatever). The taste is semi-sweet, pastry-like sour grain, some weak and wan wheaty wankery (alliteration, FTW!), and a much-abated strained green raspberry, er, fruitiness.
The carbonation is pretty soft, just a plain edginess abounding, the body a so-so medium-light weight, buoyed by that dense fruit perception, I'm sure, and not un-smooth, I suppose. It finishes more grainy than anything up to this point, the fruit a deconstructed notion, but still hanging on in spectral form.
A pseudo-beer, at best, even though it actually tastes just fine, albeit very innocuous, and definitely inoffensive (my surroundings probably influence this opinion, I must admit). A hollow fruit beer, but really, I get it, it goes down well enough, holds an above average booze quotient, and alludes to a popular fruit - I'm sure that it's more than my better half keeping this one a going concern.

I am a fan of wheat ales, fresh raspberries, and subtle fruit adjuncts. None of these present here.
Nice appearance, despite little head retention
Smell, taste, and mouthfeel are similar to drinking a cheap raspberry-syrup winecooler. I almost gagged

Big white head quickly falls into a an alright lacing above a hazy washout honey colored wheat beer.
A light soupy to sour grain aroma with a hint of canned raspberries.
A light sweet raspberry taste tops off a light sour grain and even lighter hops taste.
A light dryness comes through another wise bland aftertaste.
I love raspberries and this beer is not good.
