Can dated 4-17-18. Hefeweizen glass.

A: pours a reddish dark amber with nearly three fingers of off-white head and carbonation blasting away. Is it my imagination or is the head just a little pink? Decent lacing.

S: raspberries are definitely there. Smells a little sickly-sweet. Surprisingly, not getting a whole lot of wheaty/grain smell.

T: to my great pleasure, this is not very sweet on the arrival. Umm, I do not like this. Something just tastes wrong. Medicinal, foul. Berry and hops are not playing nice together.

M: perhaps the one salvation of this beer; a really pleasant smooth and effervescent texture - better even than the Hefeweizen I had a couple of nights ago, cleaner.

O: I am not a huge fan of fruit beers generally. But last summer I had Abita’s purple haze, and was pleasantly surprised. It was slightly fruity and refreshing. This is not. I see it selling around here, but the interplay of raspberry and hops just isn’t doing it for me. Inharmonious. I am not going to finish it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Ruby grapefruit pink color, white head of tiny bubbles, hazy and slowly effervescing
Smell: Lemon and raspberry, kind of like a lemonade but then overthrown by bitterness and the breadiness of the wheat. A bit earthy.
Taste: Much like the smell, more low key bitterness that lingers on the back of your tongue though.
Feel: Light, medium body with some energetic bubbles but not overly fizzy. A bit slick but still refreshing.
Overall: Good beer, not a great beer though. Wouldn't turn it down but wouldn't seek it out.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Nonic. Interesting pinkish copper color with a nice sized head. Smelled of grain and berries. Taste has a pleasant pucker quality while still quenching the thirst on a warm summer day. Had this with brats, potato salad and cole slaw and it complimented the meal very well.

12oz can, canned on 06-14-17, served in a shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy raspberry juice colored yellow. Thin white head with a little bit of persistent lacing.

Smell: Grainy with a nice aroma of raspberries.

Taste: Wheat tang, raspberry tartness, a hint of lemon, and a mild bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, nice thickness, dry finish, but a bit sticky on the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: Tasty and refreshing. Went well with a meal (pesto porkchops with mashed potatoes) and would go well after a hot day working outside. I find that I only want one per sitting though, and not more than this. Raspberry front and center with this beer and very much the theme of it, but it works. I've had beers with the fruit overpowering or not complimenting the rest of the beer well, but this one works well and is nicely balanced.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 10/10/2016. Pours very hazy pinkish golden/orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of lightly tart raspberry, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with lighter notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, fruit, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart raspberry, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with lighter notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, pepper, honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate yeast spiciness and light herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raspberry, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, pepper, clove, light banana/bubblegum, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, fruit, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a good malt/tart/spiciness balance, and slight lingering astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitter/spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin on body. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a good fruited American pale wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, fruit, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A little too oddly spicy/drying with slight lingering astringency; but still very drinkable and nicely enjoyable for the style.
