A - Pinkish orangish brownish beer that is pretty murky. Small white head faded to a tight ring with a few splotches on the side.

S - Smells like some light raspberry pulp, a dab of something like cinnamon. Reminds me somewhat of a shandy. Smell is pretty light.

T - Real raspberry taste is fairly distinct, but not real deep, definitely not overpowering. Finishes with a bit of lingering wheat on the end. Doesn't taste bad, but not enough flavor and it is boring.

M - A little watery, very soft carbonation. Lighter bodied.

O - While this is somewhat refreshing, and very easy to drink, I found it lacking in flavor and depth and tasted more like a watered down raspberry juice than a beer. It's non-offensive, but nothing I'd get again. Props for non-artificial rapsberry taste though.

On-tap at Haymarket. Served in a 4oz taster glass. This is an unfiltered pale wheat ale with 130lbs of raspberries added.

A - Murky dark pink body, with a finger of pink-tinged foam on to that settles to partial cap and thick collar. Minimal lace is left behind.

S - Smells like raspberries. Actually this reminds me of raspberry lemonade blended with a fairly neutral wheat ale. Very shandy-esque, and actually quite pleasant as the raspberries don't smell artificial at all.

T - Again, tons of raspberries and a bit of yeast and bread in the periphery. Clean finish.

M - Pulpy and juice-like medium-light body. Perhaps a touch watery, with lower carbonation. Very refreshing.

D - I dig the authentic raspberry flavors, and the simplicity of this beer. It avoids being overly sweet, so I could sit on the patio and have a few pints very easily. Just a really nice, refreshing, summer beer. I finished this very quickly.
