A: Pours a straw yellow with a faint but discernible tinge of maroon. There is initially a half finger head, however, it dies down into a thin sheen of foam; minimal lacing.
S: Smells like fresh raspberries with wheat; however, nothing funky.
T: Another well done fruit beer. There are two components to the taste. The first is the solid wheat backing. The wheat is refreshing and light bodied. The second component of the taste is the raspberry. This component doesn't compete with the first but instead compliments it and creates a solid complexity. The raspberry is not artificial tasting but fresh.
M: Light bodied, smooth, and clean.
O: The best fruit beer I have had hands down and at a price that can't be beat.
Serving type: bottle
