This beer has a mild flavor of raspberry accented with some hops. The smell is fruity and the taste is easy and mildly pungent. Mouthfeel is kind of watery, color is a pinkish-light red. It's a great choice for a summer beer at the Mishawaka Brewing Co.

My damn beer is PINK!!! The aroma is way over done with raspberryt. It smells like extract. Even if its not, it still smells artificial. Oddly enough, the raspberry flavor is okay. This beer is boarderline at best. It comes off as watery and flat. I just can't really see why somebody would mess with this one.

Raspberry/sweet nose. Watery tasting with slight berry noted. No real mouth to feel. It tastes like fruit punch with out the "punch". Not impressive.. but the one non-beer drinker in our bunch liked it alot!

This is essentially the Wall Street Wheat with too much raspberry extract added. It goes down easy enough, but is too sweet, and the pink color is odd. The raspberry flavor overwhelms any citrus or hops. It's a beer for the non-beer drinker, and I've seen plenty of people sharing a pitcher on 1/2 price pitcher nights.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, bright yellow body with a fizzy, pink-tinged head.

Smell: Raspberry extract aroma.

Taste: Raspberries with a light, sweet graininess. A cloying, candyish finish, but thankfully it goes away quickly enough. In both the aroma and taste, the raspberry flavor seems conspicuously artificial.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Watery and oh-so fizzy.

Drinkability: It was a chore to finish, but I won in the end.
