Sampled last night on 6/25/14 but had this one about 2 years ago. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a "Cheers-Boston" handled glass stein.

Pours a golden honey with a bit of a pink hue in color with a small white head. Some spotty lacing is seen which each sip but not a lot. The aroma is all raspberries right up front with a slight grassy-wheat aroma as well. The taste of the raspberries hits your tongue first with a dry start that finished with the wheat. Perfect balance as well as good carbonation. No harsh or bitter aftertaste at all. Overall a good brew for the warmer months.

A: Pours a translucent golden with a white head.

S: Nose is all raspberry, almost like a raspberry cider or something.

T: Taste is dry, yet sweet raspberry flavor, and just a touch of wheat.

M: Light bodied, a bit light on carbonation, which is nice. Definitely refreshing.

O: Recommended if you like fruit infused wheat beers (which I personally do).

Pours translucent gold with thin white head that quickly fades to a thin film on top and leaves faint lace.

Smell is of grainy malt, strawberry (raspberry?), and faint apple.

Taste is malt, raspberry and apple.

Mouthfeel is watery and thin with medium carbonation.

Taste like a slightly alcoholic apple juice. Too thin, too tart and too sweet.
