Sampled back on May 30th. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage 10-ounce 'COOR'S" glass.

Brew pours a golden-yellow in color with a small white foamy head. Some light spotty lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of wheat with raspberries as would be expected. Pretty much the same is said for the taste. One the light side but was decent. No harsh or bitter finish. Not as sweet as you might think, slightly tart. Lighter-bodied with good carbonation. Overall a decent brew.

Was very light was an almost diet taste. Even for raspberry it wasn't enough. Couldn't really taste the herbs or the berries. Will try more stuff from the brewery though.

Pours a murky light orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Small particles of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of wheat, grain, raspberry, and raspberry juice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and raspberry flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but the raspberry aspects seem a bit artificial in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

A - Looks good not bright red juice color like Founders version just a regular yellow orange color beer with little to no head. Some haziness.
S - Actually quite good not medicinal or artificial in any way. Not super tart though it had a sort of candy like sweetness to the smell. Little wheat.
T - Not too tart or sweet has a distinct wheat character and some fruit berries which may have been raspberries.
M - Light bodied and easy to quaff back.

Overall it was decent enough to maybe get more but I would much rather have better fruit beers.
