I picked up a single of this beer earlier this evening for $3.49 for the pint

Pours a bright and vibrant red with a foamy white head on top that dissipates rather quickly

Fruity nose with some funky whiffs

First sip uncovers fruity flavors, think a strawberry puree mixed with Welch's white grape juice. The finish is chalky and dry to uncover a blend of tartness and juicy flavors. This beer was reminiscent of a liquid version of those Fun Dip sugar stick candies you'd have when you were a kid.

Wow. All I can say is this beer tastes like celery. Very pungent celery flavor, if you love celery so much that you want to drink it, this beer is for you. I don't know why it says raspberry on the can, because it literally tastes exactly like celery.

Deeply colored raspberry red with a filmy slightly lacy head. Smell is also fruity, raspberries and I guess kiwis which are the other fruit ingredient. Taste is similar in sourness to Mikeller beers of this style - just a little tart. Taste is fruity with the raspberries and the kiwi less distinctive. Feel is very fluid, with moderate carbonation, so it is pretty typical for this fruity style. Overall, a refreshing tart weissbier with pretty good fruit flavors. Could be a good introduction to this kind of beer since it doesn't have any particular weaknesses. Pint can dated a month ago by the date on bottom, somewhat pricey in a four pack; local brewery and it was probably refrigerated most of the time since I got it from a refrigerated shelf.
