Pours a light, yellow-tan that’s clear with very little head. Looks like an average beer, nothing special about the appearance of this one. Smells like raspberry syrup. Tastes like artificial raspberry flavoring, not necessarily bad but not as good as some other fruit beers. The flavor fades quickly and it ends up being a little watery. Refreshing and a decent flavor, just doesn’t last very long and has very little mouthful flavor, all the raspberries are upfront and then end is more watery and flavorless. I realize this is supposed to be a “wheat beer”, but I’m not getting any wheat in here anywhere. Decent to drink but nothing special and there are better widely available fruit beers.

(Served in a flute)
A- This beer pours a hazy lemon pale yellow body with a thin wispy white head that is soon gone and a gentle carbonation of big bubbles pop to the surface.

S- The fresh raspberry aroma mixes with field corn in the finish and is a bit 1-dimensional.

T- The dry almost astringent taste leads to raspberry in the finish with a sulfur dry bite that takes on a lemon pith note as it opens up.

M- The light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz that dries out the finish more.

O- This beer has a pleasant aroma that is a bit 1-dimentional but the taste is very light and a bit dry and harsh with no real malt or raspberry character coming through.
