Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: Albertson’s in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack)
Purchased: Sept. 30, 2014
Consumed: Oct. 1, 2014
Misc.: Best by Nov. 2014

Poured a honey, pale, clear color with two fingers of frothy, off-white head, which settles nicely. Good looking streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Average-to-below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.50)

Got lager/pilsner notes to start in corn, honey wheat and grassy notes, followed by some buttery malts. After some deep whiffing I got strawberry, raspberry jam and cherry. (Smell - 3.50)

Tasted a lot like what I thought I would, a lot like the smell. The fruit side dominates here with raspberry, strawberry and cherry coming through, giving way to the wheat notes - grass, honey, corn and buttery biscuit. Not that appealing. (Taste - 3.25)

Light body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt, somewhat refreshing finish. (Feel - 3.25)

I’m a sucker for fruity beers and this one just didn’t do it for me. Shock Top’s Raspberry Wheat is much better. (Overall - 3.25)
