Served in a nonic pint glass

A - It is orange with a pinkish tinge to it. An inch of white head made a brief appearance.

S - It smells like raspberry puree.

T - It tastes like a raspberry wheat beer.

M - It has a lot of carbonation.

O - It is pretty sweet with lots of raspberry flavor. It is probably refreshing in the summer but is less satisfying on a cold December day.

A - Pours a pinkish-purple with a two finger slightly purple head. Decent lacing.

S - Strawberry, slight adjunct, lemon, slight blueberry, kiwi.

T - Lemon, grape, sour cherry, strawberry, pretty much as expected, though doesn't really seem like a beer.

M - Watery with a medium body and medium to heavy carbonation.

O - Overall, this beer was exactly what I expected. I'd have again on a hot summer day.

Appearance - Grapefruit juice color. Is that salmon? Cloudy. Tall soapy white head - just a touch of pink. Quickly dissipates.

Smell - Sweet lemon with a hint of berry.

Taste - Quite sweet. More berry in the start transitions to more lemon in the finish. Not clear to me what is the "berry" of the namesake. (Label claims blackberry.) Sweet but unobtrusive to the point of blandness.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Highly carbonated.

Overall - I'm not surprised that there's a market for this. It's refreshing and inoffensive, but the pretension to beer seems unnecessary.

Poured into a pint glass, this beer is a slightly reddish/pinkish color, almost like grapefruit juice. The body looks nice, semi-hazy and topped off with a thick head that’s fluffy and bubbly but thins out and has some good lacing. The aroma is rather light and overwhelmingly lemony in composition, some light grasses come through but not much else. Mouth feel is very light and the flavor is pretty much like that of watered down pink lemonade. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a bad beer just one of those beers that would be very refreshing on a hot day after working outside.
