Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a finger width head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. Has a definite raspberry aroma. There is a wheat element to it as well. Wheaty raspberry taste. Mildly tart and spicy at the end. I was actually expecting less from this beer, so decently surprised. Kind of a lager like taste at the end as well. Medium bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation.
