Raspberry Wheat pours a golden color with no head. Big hit of raspberry. Taste is very mellow raspberry flavors, nothing else and not sweet. A bit fizzy and weak. Overall mellow and drinkable.

I got this one in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks yet again, John!

It pours from 12oz bottle a clear yellow-gold with a very small head of foam that faded before I finished typing these words and it has almost no lacing.

The smell is delicate but I do get some raspberry goodness along with some sweet malt.

The taste has a light flavour of fresh raspberries followed by some sweet malt then a bit of hop bitterness that cuts the malt's sweetness almost immediately. Further sips in and the raspberry character, though still not as strong as I'd like it, turns towards the semi sou side and has a presence in the finish though that ends up mostly crisp and clean. I like it. Like I said, I was hoping for more of a raspberry kick but what's there is done nicely. I'd drink this one again, no problem.

Golden amber in the big chalice. A nice foam to start with that melts down to some lacing, but a robust tangy carbonation on the tongue. Light in weight
but the mouthfeel is a little more substantial with the tart fruit and an oily sensation. A little fruit in the aroma, but it's distinctly berry.

The fruity flavor is smooth and long lasting in the nose. A nice balance of malt and tartness, since there is not much in the way of hops. Just a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Really not a bad fruit beer and makes for a good low-alcohol style.

From the 12 oz bottle bought at Emigration Market in Salt Lake.

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip.

Appearance: light golden hue with a dash of haze and a minimal effervescence. Head is a thin finger of frothy ivory foam; not too bad but not a lot going on.

Smell: a nice raspberry aroma atop a simple wheat-malt base. The aroma does seem a little artificial, but it is still nice.

Taste: a good fruit character with a moderate and appropriate level of sweetness; there's a wheatiness appropriate to the base as well. It's not earth-shattering but it's a perfectly acceptable fruit wheat beer.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a moderate carbonation and OK creaminess.

Overall: not a bad wheat beer; I could see quaffing plenty of this under the right circumstances. It's certainly a highly drinkable strength as well.

Poured from bottle. Poor head and what there was had blink of the eye retention. Colour a bit more pale than id expect. Definitely smells of raspberry and candy, may be too much raspberry as I can't get much more. As advertised a wheat raspberry taste which are balanced well, a bit too light overall maybe. Small astringent moment at the end which goes quickly. Clean feel and smooth, just enough carb. Pretty much lives up to its label but could be a bit stronger and wheaty. I'm not a big fan of making beer taste like fruit but this was light an enjoyable. They got a good balance and paired well with pasta.

This brew is back. BrewMaster Seasonal

Pours a nice clean/clear golden color, nice carbonation, nice little white head, not much sticky lacing afterwards. The nose is malty, slight spice scent, a little touch of raspberry, and some caramel. The taste is malty, with a nice touch of raspberry, and caramel. Medium body, nice carbonated feel on the tongue. Drinkable, this is a nice brew for a hot day, a thirst quencher, a tasty brew, recommended.
