12 ounce stubby bottle. Gotta love the Jimi Hendrix reference. Let's see if this beer can stand up to my love of all things Hendrix. Pours a flat and hazy straw yellow with no head. Hmm. Not a great start. Aroma is subtle, like raspberry compote mixed with some basic lager beer. Initial impression of the taste is ... strange. Lots of wheat character in this, almost like drinking raw wheat. Very little raspberry character in this, it's overpowered by the wheat. I've had a lot of wheat beers and hefeweisens over the years, but this one may have the most wheat character of any that I've had. And if you like wheat beers, this one may be your thing, because it's like chewing on raw what. I however, am not a fan.
