10oz draft on tap at Old Chicago
A: Looks like your typical wheat beer - hazy, golden-orange body with a thin white head; head retention is surprisingly minimaland there is little lacing. Looks average to be honest...
S: Not much on the nose other than some musky wheat notes. Maybe the fact that this came in a chilled mug explains why the nose seems so dull. Just a faint expression of raspberry in the nose. Defintely was expecting more of a fruit presence here.
T: Slightly tart raspberry taste up front, but any raspberry flavors quickly fade to nothing but typical grainy/cereal-like wheat flavors. What raspberry that is there is really artificial tasting and kind of chalky - reminds me of the berry flavor in chewable kids vitamins.
M: Kind of chalky and slightly watery.
D: Eh. Not really one that I enjoyed, but I manned up and finished off the mug of this swill. Good thing it was a draft special and it was cheap, so I don't feel quite as bad about wasting my money. The fruit presence in this beer was too fake/artificial tasting and the base wheat beer itself wasn't anything to call home about. Can't say I'll approach this one again.
Serving type: on-tap

This is the perfect beer for lady's who don't like beer. This was one of the first beers I gave my wife. She liked it but now that she has acquired the taste of beer she can't stand it. What makes this beer cool is that it has a fruity essence without a sweet fruit taste. This is a beer I would never drink myself but keep on hand for those inexperienced beer drinkers.
