Bent River's Raspberry Wheat is definitely a fruity beer. It smells very sweet and carries a strong aroma of raspberries (duh). This is a very sweet beer. It isn't a beer where you can taste a hint of raspberry. The raspberry flavor is overwhelming, which isn't necessarily bad. It is very easy to drink. This is also a "girly" beer, my girlfriend was the one who wanted to try it. I'm not embarrassed to say that it was a pretty tasty beer though.

Darker in color than most in this style, good head formation and retention. Little to no nose character. Sweet and acidic on the pallet, not unpleasant but a bit harsh. Not great.

As per the website:
"This Medium Bodied Ale is Lightly Hopped with a Distinctly Fruity Finish Attributed to the Plump Raspberries"

Lots of captials, for some reason.

Okay, it pours out a hazy orange with distinct pinkish raspberry hues. No head, but still a pretty color.

Smells very light. Very, very light. Like water with a hint of raspberries. I was excited to see the word "hopped" appearing in the description of a fruit beer, but from the smell it looks as if that was a lie.

Or not. The flavor starts out with candied sweet malt, a generic bread with light hints of chocolate, moving into very light citrus hop and ending on a kick of candied razzleberries.

This is certainly a "chick beer," something to give to your girlfriend when you visit the bar. Still, it's pretty darn good.
