look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that quickly died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with hints of raspberry syrup.
T: The taste is dominated by flavors of sweet raspberries, and tastes like a Jolly Rancher candy.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but is too sweet to be refreshing. It tastes a lot like a candy.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Horrible horrible horrible

nose: primarily of wheat, like rotten flour, with a slight slight hint of strawberry

Mouthfeel: thin, like water, with very little carbonation

head/color: amber brown with a thin, but lasting head

taste: mostly a wheat taste, like undercooked wheat bread, with sour strawberry flavors.

Overall: I don't know if i got a bad bottle, but i thought this beer was absolutely terrible. The wheat flavoring way over powers what little slight strawberry taste there is. I normally like wheat/fruit beers, but this one was just plain bad. It tasted like what i would imagine shredded wheat cereal with miller lite instead of milk and a few strawberries thrown in would taste like.
