This beer will be perfect for the warm weather that seems to finally be arriving. The raspberry aroma reaches your nose as soon as you bring it near your face. The fruity flavor is well blended with a smooth wheat body. The taste is more subtle than other fruit beers and lends itself to be enjoyed over and over again without being too sweet to become overwhelming. If you're looking for a smooth, refreshing, fruit beer on a warm spring or summer day look no further.

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.

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