A:As soon as I poured this beer I was looking forward to drinking it because of the red tint that the beer had. The color is an light orange-brown with a tint of red. The head is slightly off-white and doesn't have much retention.
S:Big raspberry smell up front with just a little bit of sweetness in the end. The sweetnesse seems a little artifical, like sweet'n low, but this isn't really a negative.
T:Up front is the raspberry flavor. It is actually quite mild but still dominates the front of the palate. There is a little bit of a wheat flavor, or course it's like a hefeweizen. In the middle there is a little bit of tartness and it ends with a little bit of sweetness to balance out the tartness.
MF:It has a medium body with average amount of carbonation. It feels good in the mouth.
D:It's a very drinkable beer. It's light and refreshing. The raspberry goes really well with the hefeweizen and does not try to over power it.

Serving: Bottle poured into a pint glass.
Disclaimer: First time with a hefeweizen, fruit flavored or otherwise. Not sure what to expect.
No head, bubbles rising from the bottom. Towards the end gave it kind of a wild pour and nada. Murky apricot color.
Grapefruit, obvious raspberry, unidentified citrus. Yeast
Yeast. Citrus. Raspberries. Super soft gentle floral and citrus hop at the end – almost an afterthought.
What is that aftertaste? My God! Fruit loops.
Fizzy, crisp, slightly powdery. More like a wine than a beer.
Overall: Very drinkable and accessible. Would recommend for a non-beer drinker.
