A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down and left some lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of raspberries and wheat in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of wheat along with notes of raspberry syrup.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is dominated by flavors of pale wheat but the raspberry flavoring makes it a little more palatable to your taste buds. It isn't very refreshing.

A - Pours with a small head of white lace on top of a clear, golden body. The head settles quickly and leaves little lace.

S - Lots of juicy raspberry with tart wheat in the background.

T - Some light, earthy grain notes up front with a hint of raspberry juice. Some notes of berry seeds and herbal hops in the middle. Finishes with light wheat and a lingering fruit note.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - As fruited wheat beers go, this one is pretty decent. It has a fairly strong raspberry nose, but the fruit is balanced in the flavor and makes for a drinkable and balanced beer that is quite good for what it is.

Pours typical "beer yellow" with no head or lacing. The aroma is of raspberries with hints of cake and grass. The flavor leads off with raspberry with wheat and a mild hop presence. As it warms the mild bitterness fades and mildly tart raspberries show through. It's mouthfeel is smooth and light. Southern Tier Raspberry Wheat is a good beer, balanced between sweet and tart and very refreshing. Recommended.

A - Apple juice gold. Crystal clear. White head with low retention and lace.

S - Straight black cherry Jello.

T - Lively carbonated opening. Artificial raspberry Jello with a touch of light white bread and yeast. Lingering alpha bitter note on the backend.

M - Bright, medium-light body to style.

O - The artificial twang on the raspberry was hit or miss around the table as we reviewed this beer. I wasn't a huge fan.
