(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.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down and left some lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of raspberries and wheat in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of wheat along with notes of raspberry syrup.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is dominated by flavors of pale wheat but the raspberry flavoring makes it a little more palatable to your taste buds. It isn't very refreshing.

A - Pours with a small head of white lace on top of a clear, golden body. The head settles quickly and leaves little lace.

S - Lots of juicy raspberry with tart wheat in the background.

T - Some light, earthy grain notes up front with a hint of raspberry juice. Some notes of berry seeds and herbal hops in the middle. Finishes with light wheat and a lingering fruit note.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - As fruited wheat beers go, this one is pretty decent. It has a fairly strong raspberry nose, but the fruit is balanced in the flavor and makes for a drinkable and balanced beer that is quite good for what it is.
