Very little raspberry in the flavor, it's okay but I have had better raspberry ales. Cheers! C

L) The brew poured pretty chunky, and was not old enough to warrant such a defect. Was pleasantly hazy aside from that, with a lovely pink hue.

S) The smell was fantastic honestly, along the lines of a fruited lambic, but less strong and assertive. Very raspberry-centric. Incredibly inviting!

T) The taste was solid, but not as good as the nose. Still really raspberry forward, with a pleasant acidity, perfect amount of sweetness, and a crisp refreshing nature.

F) The brew had a medium-high carbonation which was acceptable, and a light feel for how chunky it poured.

O) Honestly, I'd recommend it to any fruited wheat lovers. It is better than people are saying, but man I wish it didn't pour chunky.

This beer's only positive was it's pink coloring. It had no smell or effervescence at all. It's head fizzled away very quickly. It did have a raspberry flavor and that was all it had. It was so bad! I poured half of it down the drain. That never happens with me and beer. Terrible product!

16 ounce pour - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Clearish, orangey body underneath a slim, white head and a lively effervescence (soda-like). Light lacing.

Smell: Subdued raspberry, altogether light coriander with a minor tipple of wheat.

Taste: Wheat, lightly sweetish, slightly grainy. Again, pretty light on the raspberry, with just a hinting of tartness. Slight coriander spiciness. Softly fruity though lightly medicinal on the drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: So-so. There's not a great underlying beer, nor is there great raspberry character.

(Served in a flute)
A- This beer pours a hazy lemon pale yellow body with a thin wispy white head that is soon gone and a gentle carbonation of big bubbles pop to the surface.

S- The fresh raspberry aroma mixes with field corn in the finish and is a bit 1-dimensional.

T- The dry almost astringent taste leads to raspberry in the finish with a sulfur dry bite that takes on a lemon pith note as it opens up.

M- The light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz that dries out the finish more.

O- This beer has a pleasant aroma that is a bit 1-dimentional but the taste is very light and a bit dry and harsh with no real malt or raspberry character coming through.
