Sampled in a 4 ounce glass while at the brewery/restaurant on May 31st, 2014 while in Topeka, Kansas for the weekend. Wrote down some notes on their brews. Alcohol content is 4.6% (ABV) and 14 IBU's.

Served at the table so I didn't see the actual pour. The color is of a dark yellow-light purple with a thin white head. Spotty lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma is very pleasant with the raspberry sweetness right up front, The taste has a perfect mix of the raspberries and wheat. Not over done at all. Not bitter or too sweet of a aftertaste. A very tasty brew!

On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a very light blonde color with a thin white head. No hint of the raspberry in the color. Nose brings forward a bit of artificial raspberry along with a very hefty dose of diacetyl. Smells like buttered popcorn with raspberry snow cone syrup poured on it. Taste brings even more butter topped with some raspberry candy. Feel is light with a buttery creaminess and some thankful carbonation to wash the taste away. Drinkability is really, really poor. I don't know what went wrong here but it was just a buttery mess; either way, it was at the brewpub so I have to fault them, wherever the problem may lie.

Light blonde with a chill haze. Thin. but sticky porcelain white head leaves sparse lace. Fresh, vibrant, but slightly sugary raspberry contrasted by mild wheat tartness in aroma. Mild sweetness lends a shortcake like impression aromawise. Flavorwise, fruit extract dominates, but it's offset by a tepud combination of mellow hop bitterness, bready pale malt and grainy malted wheat. Sweetness dominates, yet doesn't become cloying. Husky grain notes augment as it warms. Remains fruit sweet and simple in malt character. Dextrinous and pleasantly viscous, and is certainly fuller in mouthfeel than the norm. Finishes with a lingering Lindeman's Framboize like sweettart wash. A touch too fruity seet and one dimensional, but near balance is acheived. Decent, but not a brew I'd order too often.

Just a bit darker in color than the other wheat brews here with no head. The raspberry is very apparent with the first sniff. The aroma has a very candy-like quality to it as does the flavor. The body is solid and the lingering hop bite is nice. The heavier body helps diminish the impact of the sweetness.
