Clear gold colored beer with a momentary medium size white head.

Smells of raspberries. Smells slightly sour. Bread dough malt scent. Not particularly aromatic.

Starts out sweet with a hard water flavor. Raspberry flavor and a tart element to it. There is something about this that makes my tongue say "Cake Batter."

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall this is an OK food washer downer but it isn't that memorable.

12oz. bottle thanks to BigJTrucker

Pours a clear straw color with a small white head that vanishes. Mild lacing on the glass.

Aroma has a slight wheat beer base but is largely raspberry, and fairly artificial at that.

A hint of wheat beer taste immediately upfront that gets taken over by a raspberry flavor. It's not unpleasant, but not quite a natural tasting raspberry flavor.

Light body, low carbonation.

Not a bad beer, but certainly nothing to seek out. No struggle to finish the glass, but certainly have no desire for another one.

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.

Appearance - amber in color

Smell - little hops and lots of fruity flavoring - rasberry

Taste / Drinkabilty - again, you can taste a small trace of the hops with a little flavoring of rasberries. I am not a fan of fruity beers, but if I would have a choice to drink it again, I would.

Mouthfeel - very delicious

Drank at the Wasatch Brewery in Park City

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.

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.

Wasatch Raspberry Wheat has an initially thick, off-white head, and a clear, straw appearance, with clinging and ascending bubbles. Lacing is minimal. The aroma is of subtle raspberry and bread. Taste is of the same, with some background acidity and sugar. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Wasatch Raspberry Wheat finishes crisp and refreshing.
