Poured from 12oz bottle.
A- Pours a hazy amber orange color. One finger white head shows poor retention. No real lacing on the sides of the glass. Kind of a bleh looking beer to be honest.
S- Raspberry aroma is strong in this beer. It actually overtakes all the other aroma except for a light wheat nose. So pretty much big fake raspberry and very little wheat. Not very inviting at all.
T- Raspberry is lighter than on the nose. Still though it is a main stay flavor wise. Artifical raspberry in the front of the beer. Light wheat notes with nothing else except light alcohol and more raspberry in the ending.
M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. A boatload of raspberry flavor left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly raspberry and light alcohol with fading hints of wheat. Flavors are more raspberry forward and not really in a good way. No real off flavors just off putting flavors. Light alcohol drying on the palate.
D- This beer is good cold. I know that sounds stupid as it mutes the flavors. Once it warms the beer takes on a different not really good flavor. ABV is low to make it more sessionable but they need to work on the overall flavor more I think.

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.
