This is our second year of heading to Tahquamenon Falls Brewery on Boxing Day as an escape from the family. Last year, we thought the overall taste of the beers was ok, but they did leave a lot to be desired. This year, it seems that an extra year of brewing experience has made a huge difference. This was a pretty darn good beer. The smell of raspberry was what I would hope for in a fruit beer. It tasted quite good and had a nice finish.

Whenever I taste a 'fruit beer' a certain level of dread takes hold of me. This raspberry wheat ale pours as (light) wheat ale should - golden and cloudy with yeast. I was pleasantly surprised by the brewers choice to go unfiltered. Another welcome surprise was that this raspberry wheat (unlike many other raspberry wheats) did not smell like raspberry Kool-aid. So far ... so good. Upon taking a sip, I was pleased to note that the raspberry taste was not overpowering, but merely an appropriate hint of raspberry. However, this wheat ale has only a hint of malt, which is severely disappointing. Lack of carbonation and malt flavor prevent this beer from truly excelling.

Originally reviewed on August 14, 2006. On tap at the brewpub. Pour of pale evenly hued amber gold. Rim of white. No aroma, save for a light dusting of raspberry and old woman perfume. Fake raspberry syrups drains this beer of any soul. Flavor is dominated by artificial candy. Malt dies. Palate is starchy with a flowery effervescence of raspberry sugars.
