3.65/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

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.

Semi-clear, bright golden amber with fizzy, dissipating, filmy, uniform off-white head. Strong fresh raspberry aroma right as top is popped, but quickly fades. Still there in glass, but becomes an almost green bean odor, thankfully masked by berry sweetness and bready wheat character. Surprisingly it is almost identical on the palate. Not enough distinct raspberry, though certainly not none. Vegetal but in no way dank or brothy. In some ways, this still finds a way to be cloying, despite not being as sweet or tart as you would want a raspberry flavored beer to be. It's drinkable, but I'd argue it is too well-balanced. On the raspberry side I'd prefer as Raspberry infused Cider or a Framboise Lambic. On the wheat side, I'd prefer most Pale Wheat Ales, Witbiers, and Hefeweizens. It has a lot more in common with (though better than) Shock Top's Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat, minus the overt woodiness, than it does with Shock Top's own take on the Raspberry Wheat. It is thin and watery, with fine, medium carbonation made up of both prickles and suds, and feels in no way harsh, but is still not as smooth as a wheat beer should be.

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.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong raspberry, pale malt, hint of hop, and slight wheat, and a hint of sweet malt. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of raspberries (not quite fresh though), hint of hop, slight wheat, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, aroma and body dominated by raspberry, but sadly not quite fresh or actual raspberry, but more of a concentrate.

Not allot to say, this is pretty straight forward a wheat base with raspberry flavoring Not much to look at smell or taste. The raspberry is about all that saves this beer from completely falling off a cliff.
