When it comes to beers of Baltimore. Nothing tops Full Tilt Brewing. National Bohemian is a panther piss beer and this should be it's replacement... PERIOD... I love the taste... but the feel is just not there. I'm very fond of Baltimore beers. This one and the Camden Cream make for a great treat for any beer drinker.

Seems like it uses real berries and was nice. The berry flavor did linger too long though.

I am in the process of clearing out some of therom the interminable backlog here at Chez Woody and it suddenly struck me that I have most, if not all of Full Tilt Brewing's beers, held in abeyance awaiting approved pics. This site has really sped up the process, but for a while, it was slow and once a beer went on the back burner, it became forgotten. My thanks to The Friendly Greek Bottle Shop for being an ongoing resource of singles!

From the bottle: ""Full Tilt Brewing's Fleet Street Raspberry Wheat is a refreshingly smooth yet sweet, wheat beer. The raspberry aroma and subsequent taste is ironically subtle yet memorable. Beneath the raspberry character lies a grain bill of White Wheat, 2-Row Pale, and Carapils malt balanced by Tettnang and Sterling hops, which yields a hard-to-put-down and easy-to-tilt-back tribute to enjoying the fun times ahead, leaving the bad times behind, and reveling in the thrill of the present. Face it, you are drinking a Full Tilt ..."; "Full Taste. Full Pride. Full Tilt."

Being that it is, at base, a wheat beer, and some cloudiness is inherent in the style, I agitated it in the bottle and placed it back in the reefer for a few minutes. Once it calmed back down, I Pop!ped the cap and began an aggro pour. The resulting three fingers of fluffy head had a yellowish-white cast before falling, leaving some nice lacing in its wake. Color was a hazy, bordering on cloudy, Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7). Nose was redolent with raspberries and I was transported back to my late paternal grandmother's backyard garden with its red raspberry bush. Mouthfeel was soft, medium, but soft. The taste was of raspberries, but not necessarily a natural taste, but instead, more candy-like. This speaks to the hazards of using artificial flavorings - they are no substitute for the real thing. Finish was semi-sweet, pleasant, refreshing, but probably more appropriate for a hot summer's day.

12 oz bottle into a teku.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange color, with reddish traces. The head is a finger high and white in shade. Retention doesn't seem particularly special, but a little collar is left on the glass, as well as a bit of lacing. (3)

Smell: This has a massive raspberry note, but it's around a 6/10 on the "natural" scale. It also smells incredibly sweet, as expected. The nose is pretty typical for the style - fruit dominates, leaving the wheat backbone left in the dust. (3)

Taste: On the taste buds, the raspberry notes seem to be an augmentation to the wheat malt base, rather than overpowering entirely. I also pick up a lot of yeast on the back end, throwing everything else off. The level of fruitiness is right - I just wish the whole thing was structured more cohesively. (2.5)

Mouthfeel: Really full bodied for the style, yet respectably dry finishing. It's reasonably easy to drink, but not effortless. It doesn't seem to have ridiculous carbonation. (3)

Overall: This is the first Full Tilt beer that I don't like. It's hard to explain why, though...maybe it just seems out of balance to me. I will not be seeking this out again, that's for damn sure. (2.5)

2.7/5: An underwhelming offering from a rock-solid 'brewery'
