On tap at Iron Hill in Phoenixville, PA. Pours deep golden with short-lived white head and some lacing. Aroma is fruity and malty. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of raspberries, some herbal hops and what malt. Finish is short and light. Refreshing brew.

On tap at Iron Hill Media.

A slightly hazy, gold-bodied beer with a very small head that settles quickly and leaves slippery lacing. Nose is a mix of fresh raspberry, tart and sweet, with a grainy wheat note and a touch of toasty malt.

The flavor is a little off-putting; the raspberry ends up coming off oddly perfumy, lacking a fresh tart aspect or even ample sweetness; the wheat has an almost dirty taste to boot. Dry finish with a lingering perfume note I didn't relish. I almost wish this beer was a bit sweeter and more soda-like because I found the flavor it did have to be thin and a little unpleasant.

Light bodied; quite watery, with lowish carbonation. Rather than being smooth it feels rather flat and undercarbonated. Lacks crispness and the quenching feel that might help this out a good deal. None too agreeable, I'm afraid. I don't want to say this beer was terrible, but it wasn't a sweet fruit beer, or a dry beer with authentic raspberry flavor, or even a sour raspberry framboise-style brew either. I don't know what exactly it was but I do know it wasn't my cup of tea.

Enjoyed at the Wilimington, DE location brewpub.

A: thin to no head on a clear golden with slight crimson hue body.

S: wheat, pale malts and raspberry however not a very sweet aroma, more musty.

T: this one starts with sweet raspberry and strawberry flacvors up front but moves to a bitter finish which lingers for quite a while. Pale malt mustiness throughout.

M: light body and high carbonation

Overall: this one doesnt so much taste good but I appreciate it as a fruit beer that isnt just a tastless base beer with overly sweet fruit added to it.
