Had on tap at Town Hall. Review from notes.

A: Pours a pinkinsh/purple with a pink tinted head on top, nice retention and lacing.

S: Tons of raspberry, sort of reminds me of NG raspberry tart, but with much more wheat as well as hints of banana and light spice.

T: Similar to the aroma, there is plenty of fresh raspberry, cloves, pepper, and a bit of wheat.

M: Light to medium bodied with active carbonation.

O: A really nice beer. Had it not been for Masala Mama and Mango Mama, this could have been the best beer I had that night.

Poured on tap into a 10 oz snifter

A- One finger head dissipates quickly, pink, red color, hazy appearance, excellent carbonation, very attractive looking beer.
S- Pure raspberry aroma, just amazing, over powers the hefeweizen aromas, still hints of banana and spice, hints of sour as well, cannot wait to try this one.
T- Wow, slight sourness to it, very tart, you get that hefeweizen taste to it, bananas, clove, accompanied by that sweet sour taste of fresh raspberries, very fizzy.
M- Tart, well carbonated, medium mouth feel
O- Very delicious, a lot going on with this beer, raspberries worked perfectly blended with the hefeweizen style, just delicious one of the best Town Hall has brewed in my opinion.

Served with 1 finger of pink hued white head. Good retention. Good lacing. Color is a hazed grapefruit ruby red. Very appealing hefe.

Aroma: The raspberries are very fresh. Clean and tart. The hefe notes come through, but not as much as in the regular. Bananas, cloves, and a light spice.

Taste: More fresh raspberries. Awesome! But then the hefe kicks in after. It starts out like a fruit beer, but then fades into a hefe. Bananas, wheat, oranges, cloves. Solid.

Mouthfeel: Tart, spritzy, clean. Lighter bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, I really liked this infusion beer. the raspberries were fresh. Very real tasting. The base beer showed nicely as well. Very drinkable.
