Poured from 12oz bottle. Thanks to VinnieVanGogh for this bottle.
A- Pours a pinkish amberish color. One and half finger pinkish head shows medium light retention. Long streaky lacing on the sides of the glass.
S- A blast of nice tart raspberry is pretty much the aroma of this beer. Some light malt backing only comes through in light hints and nothing else. Raspberry...sour...artifical and well in your face.
T- Once again a nice tart raspberry flavor in the front of the beer. No real other flavors except in the ending front there is a wheat comes through to give a little calming to the raspberry. This once again comes in the ending to do the same thing. A little alcohol is in the ending but in good way.
M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the stlye. Raspberry and more raspberry everywhere from the aftertaste to what was left on the palate. Flavors were well bleneded for the style. No off flavors were present when I drank this. Very light drying on the palate from the alcohol.
O- This beer really surprised me. The raspberry never got to be too much flavorwise which makes this a nice summertime beer. The ABV makes this a easy beer to sit around and have with friends. I really liked this beer maybe a little too much but we all have to have our guilty pleasure beers right??

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.
