I had this one a while ago and it was 4.7ABV then.
The color was yellowish and foggy. There was some lacing. The smell was like the name, raspberry. It also tasted like raspberry (imagine that). It was smooth, not bitter, not malty and not too sweet. It was a little thin though.

This is certainly an interesting beer. This was my first experience with a fruit-flavored beer, and while I'm certainly not a detractor, it's not my favorite style. That being said, it's nothing against any of the beer's characteristics, it's just a matter of my wanting something else from a beer. This one is suitably wheat-colored, with a light white head. The smell is very much rasberries, with hints of hops and wheat. Taste follows, this honestly tasted more like a rasberry soda than a beer to me, though some hops and wheat were noticable (and came out quite a bit more as the beer warmed, along with the alcohol taste). Mouthfeel is crisp and light, and the beer certainly goes down easily. If you're a fan of rasberries, give it a try. If you're a fan of beer, skip it. If you're a fan of both, you may well be in heaven with this one.
