On tap. Girly beer? I'm secure. This pours clear golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma of malt, biscuit, and berry. The flavor is original, but not unique as I find a similar (others have noted maple) sweetness to most all their brew. It's impeccably smooth, and the finish is just lingering deliciousness.

This poured out a clear bright yellow (SRM4) with a thick white head supported by a moderately high level of carbonation. Dominant raspberry nose that is very sweet masking the hops and malt. Raspberry wheat flavor with low bitterness and moderately sweet. Raspberry is a bit cloying and the finish should be drier.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Large glaring white foamy head of three fingers tall. Body is quite adjunct looking crystal clear gold/straw color and minimal lacing. Not bad, nothing too impressive or awful.

Bouquet is strong spiced berry smells like raspberry and a wheat chew. Simple so I call good. Nothing offensive or off, smells like it should even have a little spicy clove.

Taste is incredibly fruity. Nice raspberry punch, light bodied density and almost crisp feeling. Missing a little wheat density in the palate, but seems to come through slowly in the finish.

Overall this is pretty impressive and a pretty tasty fruit beer, maybe one of the better ones I’ve had in a long time.

Pours a pretty see through straw color... nice head to it that stays consistent all the way down. Nice sweet aroma to it. Taste has a nice body to it and great mouthfeel with nice carbonation. Nice subtle raspberry taste to it, not overkill like some breweries. Not overly tart either like the last raspberry wheat I had, makes for a nice drinkable summer seasonal. If you have a girlfriend who usually doesn't drink beer this would probably be a good option to try out.

Pours clear golden color with a big head that quickly dissipates. The smell is strong with raspberries and a bit of wheat and malt. The taste is also mostly of fairly dry raspberries and some wheat. A clean mouthfeel, and fairly drinkable. A good one for a hot afternoon. My first experience with a non home-brew'd rasberry wheat.

This beer is listed as having a 4.1% ABV. I had this on tap at the American Craft Beer Fest in Boston in June 2008.

The beer is refreshing with mild raspberry in the nose, with some grainy wheat in the background. The appearance was quite pale, with a bit of a soapy head.

The taste was refreshingly light raspberry, with a decent but not brilliant wheat beer as its base. There wasn't much more to say about this beer although I will seek it out in bottle form and re-review it to see if I uncover anything else in a more contemplative setting.

Poured from a bottle into a weisse vase, the beer is a bright, vibrant, yellow-gold coloring with a trace, thin filmy coating of white on the surface. Aromas of raspberry all over the nose, both tart and sweet. Flavors are very raspberry on the initial tongue, with a very true flavor, avoiding the syrupy character that some fruit beers end up with. Almost a baked flavor to it, like raspberry cobbler or pie. The bready characteristics are slightly underwhelming when trying to balance the tart, sweet berry profiles, but they do help to keep it from dominating your palate and becoming cloying. Subtle sweet aftertaste, which is a welcome surprise, giving your palate a quick break between sips. Clean, crisp finish for the fairly light bodied brew. Not bad, but too many might be a little oversweet for me.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 13, 2013.

It pours will a chill-hazy lighter yellowish-amber with a full white head that fades downward.

The nose is absolutely full with raspberry more so than wheat. It is supposed to be all natural and I have no doubt that it is. But its exuberance is like a raspberry iced tea. The pale malts, wheat and crisp clean hops are so far in the background that are nearly non-existent.

The body is light and refreshing.

The taste has a slight wheaty start but like the aroma the raspberry becomes the dominating ingredient.

Thanks to jwc215 for this brew.

Best Buy Jan 08

Pours a nice clean/clear golden pale yellow color, nice carbonation, nice one finger foamy white head, some nice sticky lacing follows. The nose is malty, slight yeast, raspberry, slight caramel. The taste is slightly sweet, malty/yeasty, nice touch of raspberry, a slight tone of caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, a nice little brew, recommended.
