On-tap at Mountain Sun's Vine St Pub.

A: Cloudy herbal tea color with a minimalist white head. Head retention is poor and no lace is left behind.

S: Rather fruity, with a pronounced raw wheat scent.

T: Tart and dry with a yeasty bite. Raspberries are there with a mild dark fruit flavor that adds an herbal tea quality to the mix. Finishes rather clean.

M: Light body feels a bit watery. Carbonation feels about right.

D: Nice session beer, but nothing special. Nice to try, but not one I'll be ordering on my next trip to Vine St.

This poured a yellowish pink color with a decent tan head. The nose had some wheat malts and lots of sugary raspberries. The taste is over powered by raspberry syrup. Needs more of a malt base to balance it out. A light crisp body goes down well. Just too much raspberry flavoring here.

The ratings may be a bit high simply because this was the best beer I had on my CO tour of micros.

The color is a light pink, a smallish head and a nose of raspberries and clouded wheat (obviously).

The taste is definitely a wheat through and through, with the subtle flavor of the fruit in the nose and finish. The mouthfeel is light, as a wheat beer should be, but not to be mistaken with thin.

I pounded about 4 of these, at a rate quicker than I should have!

The beer pours a cloudy pink color with a 1/2" white head that fades to lacing. I love the pink color. Don't be afraid. This means they used real fruit as opposed to that fruit extract garbage. The aroma is good. It has a nice pale wheat scent along with a mild raspberry odor. It's tart and authentic. The taste is outstanding. It has a light wheat taste that is complimented with tart raspberry flavor. It has a smooth, genuine taste that you usually can't get in most commercial fruit brews. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a low bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a very good fruit beer. They don't sellout, so there are going to be people turned off by the color and taste, but this is what you get if you homebrew a fruit beer. The real thing is so much more flavorful.

My wife ordered this one twice at Southern Sun in Boulder, I helped her with it and got enough for a review. Pours a raspberry tinged, cloudy color with a thin had. Okay lacing. Bready malt accented with nicely ripe raspberries aroma. Comes off as a refreshing summer beer, with a light mouthfeel and just enough carbonation. Wheat malty, with just enough ripe raspberry in the flavor to get you going. Not outstanding, but good.

Appearnce: Raspberry Wheat poured a cloudy orange with pink tinge to it, kinda like the color of grapefruit juice.
Aroma: You can definitely smell the raspberries.
Flavor: This beer was too sweet for me. Usually, raspberries add tartness. In this brew, they gave it a sweet profile. I'll pass next time.
