Poured from a bottle into a Bell's tulip. The pour is amber with a touch of red and sports about a finger of frothy white head which quickly dies down to a thin lacing. I definitely get some fruit on the nose, but it smells more like grapes than raspberries. There is also a faint lemony note and a wheat-like character.
The beer has a light body and a bright, fruity flavor. There is a nice cracker-like graininess up front. It's met by a nice barrage of fruit flavors, primarily raspberry and grape. Unfortunately, they flavors don't quite carry through the finish and it's a bit bland in the back of the mouth.
I have had this beer at tastings once or twice and decided to give it a review. I'm surprised this is a lager since I get a distinct wheat-beer character and no distinct malt flavor. Not really something to seek out, but still a nice easy-drinking and refreshing beer on a hot summer afternoon.
