Sampled at the brewery before reviewed from notes, color is a bright pink with even brighter edges, about two inches of pinkish white head with some decent retention, minimal lacing, aroma consists of raspberries, wheat, grassy accents, earthiness, and mellow grains, flavor begins with slightly sour berries that are rather chewy immediately, lots of wheat in the middle, finish has more of the same berry flavor as before, this beer has a lot of fruit flavor while remaining pretty light overall, chewy and sweet mouthfeel, thin to medium bodied, very high level of carbonation, could drink lots of this, almost does not seem like beer at times and rather a cider, alcohol is not in the flavor at all and would not expect it to be either while being under five percent, very refreshing and would be a cool beer to have around in the summer, worth trying

I had the IPA, my GF had this... and I had to jump all over it as it looked so very delicious....

- Lovely cloudy light yellow and raspberry red color... pinkish violet... fluorescent.. and glowing... creamy light head, and a decent amount of lacing... rather light but cloudy..

- Smell is a raspberry fruit wonderland.. really a great smell.. slight sweetness... sugar, light sweet malt... little floral..

- Smooth and light sailing for this one... the taste isn't too sweet which I love, and the flavors are all blended and balanced so well... w/ 3/4 Lb. used for 1 gallon of beer... it certainly seems like the right amount! Light, awesome, and wonderful... a self-reward beer... for a long day of yard work or whatever else..

- Light sweetness, and fruit aftertaste.. makes you want to keep drinking this stuff all day long... better than water.

- Perfect light carbonation, and perfectly refreshing.. one of the best fruity beers I've had.... a must try!

A good effort, this brew is dominated by yeast with hints of raspberry. It really comes across as being artificial, the raspberry actually seems to have a medicinal quality. The wheat is not really doing anything either except adding cloudiness to the brew.

A rare miss for these guys. Perhaps I got the dregs from the keg or something. I'll taste again when I can and update.

I got this beer at Racoon Lodge in Portland Oregon. This is not a beer drinkers beer. It's a lite seasonal that goes great with fish or a salad. If I had to describe it, I'd call it a fruity beer champagne. It's definitely not for everyone, but I loved it. On a side note, my girlfriend is disgusted by beer, and she didn't make her usual gag face.

04AUG12 at the barrel house.

Very disappointed with this one. The server did not warn us this was an overnight sour mash (she later indicated after I said it was too sweet and plain).

Looks like a watered down Rose wine - flat and glassy. Smells of raspberries and sweet alcohol with a slightly rosy character. Fun nose. Flavor is much less fun. Tastes like a golden ale with a bunch of raspberry flavor - not tart, but slightly dry on the finish. Sad beer.
