Back for the summer of 2018, this beer was an enjoyable first foray into the slew of summer beers that are expected to fill all of our shelves. A straightforward raspberry wheat beer with nice raspberry notes hitting the nose and palate at every drink. There was some leftover wheat flavour on the tongue that was a bit of a downer but overall I enjoyed.

It's not amazing but could you pass these out at the BBQ and be a hit; yes!

Paired with Gary John Bishop's Unfu*k Yourself.

A- The color is quite spectacular....that being a deep copper brown with red tinges....the head is very well retained, is quite dense and soap like and loving the color, which is white with pink hues involved! The lacing is quite mild to moderate....the foam tries to cling but doesn't quite make it....too hard to tell what the carbonation is like in the murk!

S- Full on fresh raspberries take front of the line in the aroma! There is a creamy, yeasty quality that reminds me fully of raspberry creamsicleand a fresh grainy wheat malt presence, along with the sweet barley malt to help compliment the mild tartness of the berries. Hop bitterness is minimal on the finish or throughout period....very nice smells in general.

T- Tart raspberry flavors that remind me of freshly picked fruit straight from the orchard! Biscuit like creamy yeasty bread like smoothness....somewhat dry grains due to the wheat and balancing sweet barley malt help round this out on the palate....the finish is slightly bittering but it's not very overpowering.

M/O- Solid medium body, and super refreshing! This is a great summertime beer, however, it is well enjoyed even on a cool breezy night in November.....the alcohol is tucked away and the fresh fruit nature along with sweet malts and creamy yeast make this almost dessert like on it's own and is paired nicely with a raspberry/lemon cake! Recommended!

If I'm going to spend a hot summer afternoon sitting on a patio drinking beer, I'd be lucky to have this at my disposal. Maybe not a beer I'd drink regularly, but light, refreshing and not too sweet. Feels like a great July/August beer in Alberta.
