Rose-colored. Tiny, quickly disappearing, white head.
Sweet fruit aroma, faint. A hint of citrus.
Raspberry taste, still on the subtle side. A little lemon.
Crisp.
Just not that good a beer.

On tap at Hinesburg public house. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a dark pink close to red color with no head nor lacing. The smell started off with a sharp raspberry and gets slightly tart as it warms up. The taste was moderately sweet carrying a light tanginess to carry into the aftertaste. There’s no finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt right as a raspberry ale allowing some sweet fruit to roll slightly dry over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a decent fruit beer or APWA, whatever it's supposed to be. Raspberry is there and seems authentic.

This has a red color with a quickly dissipating pink head. Maybe this shouldn't be classified as a pale wheat ale.... This has a sweet fruit scent mixed with some wheat beer aroma. Ok, very inoffensive flavor where you get the berry but it's just slightly sweet, at least at first with some slight tartness also. This has a very light taste with a medium/thin mouthfeel. It's a fruit beer.

This beer pours a slightly hazy ruby amber color with a one finger, sudsy white head. Retention is moderate and there are sticky, webbed rings of lacing left all over the glass.

Smell is very one dimensional. Fresh sweet raspberries with just a hint of bready malts.

Taste starts off similar with sweet, juicy raspberry, which then turns tart with a hint of lemongrass leading to a dry wheaty twang on the finish.

Feel is very light and easy drinking with moderate carbonation. Starts off juicy but finishes dry.

Overall a solid beer. I could drink this on a hot summer day, but honestly once I polish off the other two from my variety 12pk I probably won't be revisiting this. Not because it is bad necessarily, I'm just not a huge fan of raspberry beers. But I have definitely had much worse.

L: Hazy, dark pink with a thin white head. Decent retention, and a bit of lacing.

S: Fresh, tart raspberries; raspberry seeds; Haribo Raspberry Gummi candy, and just the faintest touch of lemongrass.

T: Lots of fresh raspberries upfront, the seeds, a bit of tartness, then it dries out to a quick flash of biscuit malt. There's a little bit of lemongrass sourness and spice on the finish, along with a mineral water character.

F: Medium-light bodied, but steady carbonation. Drinks easily with a balanced finish; not too sweet, nor too dry.

O: A solid raspberry beer. Stands up to competitors like Founders Rubaeus and Samuel Smith's Organic Raspberry Ale.
