The beer pours a hazy pinkish gold color with a spotty lace head. It's not a very good looking beer that's for sure. The aroma is weak, but smelling of raspberries and pale wheat malts. They could use to increase the raspberries used in the brewing of this one. For one, it would increase the "purple" color and the aroma of the fruit. I had to stick my nose practically in the beer to get a wiff. Also, the flavor would be more pronounced. Brewers always pussy out on the use of fruit. Anyways, the taste is average. It is quite watery with a slight raspberry aftertaste that hangs on your tongue. The mouthfeel is good. It is a low bodied beer with good carbonation. It drinks fair. I liked this beer until I looked at it critically.
