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.

A - Golden colored, Light, and carbonated-looking. The head is very thin and light.

S - Sweet, you can smell the raspberries and it tickles the nose due to the bubbles.

T - Light taste, soft on the raspberry flavor so it is very refreshing, not overpowering at all. Not much body to the beer so for stout or heavy lager drinkers I can see how this beer may let you down. But if you enjoy Blue Moon, you'll most likely love this Raspberry Wheat.

M - Very drinkable, it is easy to chug this beer if you so chose, though I suggest just enjoying the flavor. It has the feel of a soda-water which again is refreshing.

O - I regularly order this beer when I dine at Iron Hill in Lancaster, PA. It is always on tap and it has become one of my favorite beers so I'm upset Iron Hill doesn't bottle and sell their beers outside of the restaurants so I could enjoy a case at home.
