My sister-in-law left some of these at the house after a get together a few weeks ago. Wish she would've taken them with her!
12 ounce bottle poured into pint glass.
A - Darker amber, which was unexpected considering it was a honey raspberry ale. I was expecting a lighter beer. A little bit of foamy head, no lacing.
S - I can pick up the sweetness of the raspberry and honey. Some decent malt character. No hop aromas coming through for me.
T & M - Light bodied, light carbonation. I get some sweetness from the fruit and honey, but not as well defined as most raspberry beers. Seems like they had good intentions, just didn't execute as well.
Overall - I am a fan of raspberry wheat beers, and also honey weizens. This one falls short of many others I've tried. It's not horrible, but it's not great either. I wouldn't purchase it again. By the way, the label on the one I have looks completely different than the one on here.

Because I need to lower my rAvg, 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. I'm not sure how old the bottle is, but I got it on clearance, so...
A: Pours a moderately hazy tawny color. Great head on this one, a two finger offwhite shade with fantastic texture. Retention isn't great, but lacing is stunning.
S: Raspberry candy. Tons of general sweetness with an artificial 'kick' to it as expected. A hint of wheat malt tries to come through, and almost does.
T: Fruity sweetness to start, before rounding out to a nondescript wheat finish. The chemical character is a bit pervasive in general. Still, it manages to be extremely bland instead of actively offensive. Congrats, I suppose?
M: Not as carbonated as I anticipated, but it goes down easily enough. Still, the chemical astringency on the finish needs to go.
