Appears a hazy light gold with a decent 2 finger head that lasts for over a minute. Real nice scattered webbing left all over the inside of the glass. Smal amounts of carbonation slowly swing in lines to the top.
Smell is of a decent American wheat with a sweet raspberry aroma mixed with honey and cream.
Taste is of the aromas with a sweet yet balanced taste. There is just a touch of hops at the swallow and a very very mild tartness that seems to nudge it's way into the mix.
Mouthfeel is light bodied, relatively smooth, sweet, as well as a touch of tart semi dryness that you would get with a true raspberry style.
Drinkability is good. Nice and refreshing with no overkill and just the right amount of honey sweetness with some raspberry flavor coming through. In my opinion, this is the most overdone style, especially on the east coast. You can find this in just virtually every brew pub around and it's just a matter of the brewery making this as good as they possibly can. This was pretty good. Maybe not the best but good nonetheless.

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, rose-tinted copper coloring with a filmy head. Nose of subtle raspberry tart and sweet, and not much else. Flavors are sugary raspberry forward, with a very tart end note. Toasted, grainy backbone. The palate just seems off-balanced for my taste. Light, crisp bodied, with a tangy, sugary aftertaste. Cloying, lingering finish.

Appearance: gold with a hazy tint. Light head and little to no carbonation. Smell: smell is deliteful. I'm getting wheat with hints of raspberries coming through. Taste: medium body, malt in forefront with raspberries hints coming in on the end. Floral notes after. Overall: decent wheat beer. The smell got me excited and I was a tiny bit disappointed by the taste but it was still ok.

I've lived in Wilmington, NC for almost 10 years, and this has been a staple since before I lived here. This is by far one of the best microbrews I've ever had in my life.

A perfect fruit aroma, if you're into that kind of thing. In my opinion, the taste is a perfect blend of beer and fruit. They found a great recipe, and stuck with it. I order this beer every time I visit Front Street Brewery, and I look forward to ordering it for years to come.

The beer poured hazy pale golden with a tall white head that lasted to lace the glass.

The aroma was fruity raspberry.

The flavor was light with raspberry and a slight metallic flavor. The raspberry is not a fresh flavor, or a natural flavor, more of an additive. The bittering was substantial enough to be noticeable in the background.

The finish was dry with raspberry long into the aftertaste. The body was medium.

The raspberry has an artificial flavor to it and a slight metallic flavor. While the aroma is nice, the flavor is not.

22 ounce bottle purchased at Winesellar and More in Wilmington. Bottled on July 1.
