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.
