Had this on-tap at the brewery in a mason jar. The description of the beer says this is a wheat ale with olallie berries, which are basically raspberries.

Appearance: hazy orange hue which suggests a red cast from the berries. Head was a thin finger of white foam leaving a nice lace. Not too bad!

Smell: light wheaty aroma with a hint of raspberry. It's quite balanced with only a hint of tart acidity, which can sometimes be overpowering in this kind of fruit beers. Not bad!

Tate: smooth and natural raspberry flavor on top of a pretty neutral wheaty base. A little bit tart but smoother than less well crafted examples of the style. For what it is, it is quite good.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big, well integrated carbonation. Super creamy and satisfying. I'm not sure what's up with these fort George brews on-tap; they all have such great texture!

Overall: I'm not always in the mood for a raspberry wheat beer. But when I am, I can't imagine a better way to slake my thirst.

On tap @ the Fort George Brewery + Public House (Astoria, OR) on 8/31/11. Served in a mason jar.

Pours an unfiltered looking apricot with a thin layer of bright-white head. This retains with some slim looking foaming ringing, which leaves back a cascade of light sticky lace. The aroma smells of juicy beer flavors, which are backed by a crisp feeling bready sweetness. Going deeper reveals a bit of an earthy citrus presence at the core of the nose.

The taste has those berry flavors on the edges, which adheres to biscuit-like sweetness of the malts. An earthy citric bitterness adds some crispness to the profile. The finish here is dry with a touch of lingering rind. The mouthfeel is lighter bodied, with a lively and spritzy feel in the mouth. While there is some crispness here, this just feels like it could use a touch more body. This was easy drinking enough though I guess.

Eh, this wasn’t too bad for a light bodied fruit beer but this just fell a bit flat in the overall flavor department. This would be a good one for somebody maybe just getting into the craft scene but it left me wanting more.
